Sales Advisor (Current Employee) – Bakersfield, CA – June 29, 2018
Most promotions were given to friends just because. Sort of bordering on Nepotism. When a lead position was opened the manager gave the job to a friend instead of posting the job for everyone to see and just gave the person the job in secret.
CS Supervisor (Former Employee) – Boone, IA – August 14, 2018
I could have done this job for the rest of my life. Even though it was stressful helping resolve complaints, it had a flow to it. We all tried our best, and there were chances to take breaks when necessary.
Mail Extractor (Former Employee) – Harlan, IA – August 13, 2018
This is a horrible place to work. Especially in the mail department. My supervisor was arrogant and mean. Thought he did nothing wrong and refused to help people. One time in specific, i forgot to put my phone in my locker so i asked to put it on his desk til break, they only have cubicles that you can see into, my phone had a lock on it the pattern, well he sat there and figured out my screen lock and went through my phone.

Second Shift Supervisor/Support (Current Employee) – Boone, IA – March 17, 2018
The Motto at CDS is "come for the job, stay for the people." This is very accurate. The employees at CDS Global are great. The managers are willing to work with you and your schedule, and want you to succeed as an employee. The work hours are fantastic.
Vice President Director Information Technology (Former Employee) – Des Moines, IA – March 12, 2018
CDS-Global primarily served the Publishing Industry since it inception. As digital media has evolved, publishers have been forced to rethink of themselves as content marketing with a changing revenue stream. The emphasis on developing their brand and content in the face of changing consumer preferences has required CDS-Global and the services it provides to evolve. This has been a difficult transition.
Demonstrator (Current Employee) – Lakewood, CA – March 7, 2018
Working at cds is very fun. Lot of laughs with co workers and the amount of support from the management is one of the better parts of working there. The breaks we receive are really good, go bing us time to actually rest . The six hour shifts are really faced paced because the amount of talking and serving samples. Overall a very good job, but the amount of hours i get are not enough for the expenses i have.
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Harlan, IA – November 17, 2017
If you don't conform to their standards they will fire you. If you do not click with their click, they will fire you. It is a very stressful and hostile workplace. They slave drive and have no rewards or positive reinforcement. Managers lie to the employees and go back on their word to write up the employees to prevent a raise at the end of the year. The agree to your schedule on the day of hire but in small letters at the bottom of the application they have the right to change the hours at any time. The hours your discuss will not be the hours you get.
Opex Operator (Former Employee) – Harlan, IA – November 12, 2017
A very quick paced environment. The hardest part of the job was the repetitive actions. It was nice that were stretching exercises every hour. People were nice and the managers were caring. Safety procedures were always followed.
Inbound Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Harlan, IA – October 23, 2017
A typical day when you first start is very scary. The training is a little basic and the knowledge they give you before going on the floor is basic as it gets. Management is fine as long as you know them either outside of the work place or stay off the radar, but once you are on their radar a lot can go wrong very quickly and you start to notice how unprofessional they really are. The hardest part of the job is accepting that the people that are telling you how to do your job, do not know themselves how to do your job and dealing with constant belittling on and off the phone. As well as realizing that any investment you put into the company as far as loyalty and flexible on your hours as they request, that is not reciprocal. The most enjoyable part of the job is the pay, it is very well, partly believed to be because of such a high turn over rate, and partly because well the job is well worth it.
