Fun atmosphere, but hard to move forward in the company
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Fort Collins, CO – May 20, 2015
I worked in Customer Service and loved my time there. However, I was hired as a temporary employee, as were most people. So while you had the culture around you, you couldn't really participate in any of it.
The people I worked with were positive and wanted to succeed together. My supervisors were helpful and available as any need came up. The goal was to join the full time staff, but that goal became harder to reach as time went on. It seemed that you couldn't really figure out what you needed to do to move forward. Even if your numbers were great, which mine were, so was every other temporary employee around you.
So while things were positive day-to-day, overall it kind of felt like they set out carrots for us to reach, knowing that we wouldn't and eventually move on.
However, I really enjoyed my time there. I was able to help in a number of cool initiatives and developments and I came to know some stellar people. If you can become a full-time staff, things are fantastic, but as a temp, it's pretty tough going.
Excellent culture of healthy competition, tons of free perks
