Auditor (Former Employee), Tucker, GA – July 24, 2014
Pros: early days
Cons: short breaks
I was working with this company for over a few months however I was told not to come back because my background check. I asked what was the issue however never got a definite answer. They kept asking if I had been arrested before, now I'm no lawyer however I know my rights. The question on the application clearly states, "have you been convicted of – more... a crime" my answer was "no". I've never been convicted, yes I've been arrested and placed on probation however I was never convicted of any crime. First, it was over 7 years ago, second, I was placed on first offender which gives me the right to place "no". I have never served any time nor been convicted yet this company would not allow me to come back. I've had numerous amounts of jobs that pay way more yet this is the only one that gave me the run down. – less

Inventory Specialist (Current Employee), Tucker, GA – February 13, 2014
Pros: very open and enjoyable
Cons: the hours given aren't enough
One day at work I messed up on a count instead of being talk to in calmly or respective manner I was taunted as though I was a child. I learned that to keep my job I must respect the higher figure in any matter. Management to me is based on favoritism rather than leadership skills. My co workers are both good and bad it all depends on who you allow – more... yourself to hold conversations with its like being in high school again. The hardest part of my job is counting item thats far back from your eye sight and you can't quite make out what it is nor can you put your hands on it because you might knock other things off the shelf. The most enjoyable time is when were able to hold conversations with one another to make the day less stressful and a lot more faster. – less

I would read gas meters,I learned how to read them properly and from a distance.Management was easy to get along with as well as the co-workers. The hardest part of the job was when you had to go to the bathroom you had a long way to walk back to your truck.The most enjoyable part of the job was meeting new people and learning tricks to make the job – more... easier. – less
Chef (Former Employee), Shenandoah, TX – January 21, 2013
Pros: great hours
Cons: no support from upper management. always short on supplies.
Lost our two upper management people including the Head of Nursing. After that, the guy that screws in light bulbs took over the dietary department.Went down hill after that. How in God's name can a janitor run the Dietary department?
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee), Jacksonville, FL – September 27, 2012
Pros: gaining new experiences, knowledge and challenging myself as a leader.
Cons: it was not a stable business, if our contract were to run out if we didn't have another supplier to transfer to, there was a high chance of losing our jobs.
A typical day at work consisted of monitoring sales representative on calls in order to insure quality customer service. Documenting payroll and conversion rate for each employee in order to properly track hours and commission. Receiving turn over calls in order to attempt to close potential clients. Scheduling training sessions for new or potential – more... employees, conducting training power point and administering training test to potential new hires. Tracking all new clients and their information for discounted energy rates for contracted companies. Management was great, it felt great working for a company that had my back when it came to insuring that I learn, and grow as a young motivated employee seeking experience in all aspects of assisting with running a business. Co workers were very cooperative and respectful as I am a young individual and still in the process of learning how to give constructive criticism as well as be a good example as a leader. The hardest part of my job was keeping myself presentable, and professional in all aspects of the job in order to receive the respect of a more experienced manager. The most enjoyable part of my job was helping our sales representatives build their confidence and close deals. I also enjoyed helping clients in deregulated states lower their electricity bills and informing them of how important it is to take advantage of having the choice of choosing their own supplier, being in a deregulated state as florida is not one and we must pay whatever rate the electricity companies choose to charge us. – less
