Account Representative (Current Employee) – Norristown, PA – February 17, 2017
The one you see on tv where they are miserable and constantly asking why they are here trying to pretend like they are happy. Ya that one. The only thing I can say positive is the work/life balance but even that has its problems.
Account Coordinator Representative (Former Employee) – Norristown, PA – February 14, 2017
I enjoyed working at USM. I sat in a cubicle with seasoned representatives. They were very helpful in my time of need. I sat next to my manager and she would advise me when necessary. The hardest part of the job was that they did not provide a classroom setting for training. The training consisted of shadowing a rep for a week and put on the floor near a manager if you needed help.
Interior Operations (Current Employee) – Norristown, PA – February 3, 2017
Company has no idea what they are doing in operations. Different processes and rules every week, poor communication, they give you so much work it's not possible to get done. Management is lazy and unrealistic in what it takes to do the job. The ladies club take their hourly smoke breaks while the little people struggle to even get their hour of lunch. The place is losing business all the time and they try to turn it around as a positive development. I enjoy my co-workers but the managements is the pits. Also, for the month of December each year, they stop paying their contractors. Many were no able to make payroll, right at the holiday season. USM did not care unless the contractor threatened to quit.

I enjoyed working here. It was a challenging job and allowed for personal growth.
Nor Cal Area supervisor (Former Employee) – Northern California – December 27, 2016
Ran four different yards throughout Northern California. It was a challenging job due to the fact that yards were spread out and I had to travel 350+ miles daily to meet customers and ensure that every contract was being serviced. I enjoyed this job because it was challenging and allowed me to grow as a superintendent.
I can really actually tell you anything good about this company
Maintenance janitor housekeeping (Former Employee) – Alsip, IL – November 30, 2016
What I didn't like about us and was then when they lost their contract and they lost the company didn't even tell us that they were going to have no more jobs so when the other company took over they didn't want us in their company they wanted to start off with new people but the only thing that they did was they wanted us to train the other people reserving it take over for they can know what we were doing for the retail store first two years company so USM never told us that we were not working we just pretty much figure it out then we weren't working anymore it didn't have no benefits no nothing I can pretty much say anything good about USM
The company overall was average or just below average. My department, procurement, was better than most, but quite understaffed & underpaid.
Procurement Specialist (Former Employee) – Norristown, PA – September 12, 2016
The company overall was average or just below average. My department, procurement, was better than most, but quite understaffed & underpaid. I enjoy a very fast paced challenging work environment, so I liked a lot of overtime & a lot of demands on my time.
Intern (Former Employee) – Hattiesburg, MS – April 11, 2016
USM is fair and supportive. The atmosphere is relaxed yet professional. There is a rewarding feeling working at the university because there are diverse groups of people and it is a learning environment.

Procurement Specialist (Former Employee) – Norristown – September 3, 2015
decent place to work. Although we experienced numerous layoffs and attrition rates upwards of 60%. Management was resistant to fresh ideas. Definitely a "boys club" culture. Bottom line, it gets you procurement experience for better jobs. Not the most sophisticated procurement minds leading.
Compensation and opportunity for Overtime pay; Good people
favoritism; Not supportive of continuing Ed and professional societies
