Paper Sorter (Former Employee) – Calera, AL – June 11, 2018
The owner/management is rude, the breaks are cut back by 5 min so you have to use break to go back to the station, get in trouble for being young. Just overall bad place to work. The pay isn't worth the time to work there.

Micromanaged to death. Too many reports to do that should have been done by management. Too many hours spent out of the field. Too many trips to Alabama when there was work to be done in the state I worked in

its an awesome work enviroment and time flies but the hours that i worked were awful. When your at work you stay so busy that time flies by. The work is tough on your hands and very fast paced all in all its not hard work.

MSpark gives everyone a chance to be employed and they try to live out the values of the workplace also being a family. I have really enjoyed my time working there. I have especially enjoyed the people.
Thank you for sharing your feedback. We're glad you've had such a good experience!

MAINTENANCE TECH (Former Employee) – indianapolis – February 10, 2018
Management has little control over employees. This problem was getting better, but not solved and favoritism will never stop. Day/night shift managers always at odds over how to manage with the day shift manager having final say. Witnessing these two fighting spills into the employees making it an us verses them style instead of a team. I have my opinion of who is correct so that did not help the stress levels. You can't argue facts, though. The most enjoyable part of the job was the handful of employees that continued to come back. Cheering them on as they hit a goal or being there for them in difficult times. Be it work or home. They become family.

Cash Application Specialist (Former Employee) – Helena, AL – January 20, 2018
The management at this facility is terrible. It's a very uncomfortable environment. I've never worked at a place where the supervisor is 2 feet away from you all day and she brings her personal problems, talking about them out loud, for everyone to hear. It created a lot of drama everyday, on top of having to do things to her exact specifications only to get completely humiliated in front of coworkers when it wasn't perfect for her. Miserable.
Copy and Print Associate (Former Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – December 18, 2017
A typical day is moving a ton of paper from point a to b, then c, and reloading d... and repeat this for 12 hours and about 2 weeks in the middle of the month. (A production cycle)
High turnover rate will guarantee you that each production will have a share of minor and major issues. If you have a good line or two.. if you prepared for the next order.. then you shouldnt have any true disasters until the last few days of production.
You will be kept busy and time will often fly by. The people you meet are very interesting.
Dont have too much of an outside life during production, Dont have kids that will need your attention during production, Dont do anything except work, sleep and wash.. during production, Find a ride so you dont have to take the bus and walk for 20 minutes off Washington St

Mspark was a great warehouse it was fast paste but was a good experience , good people to work with and managment was very good also . only thing i did not like about the job is that they cut people on site and you never know when or how long you could be sent home .
Poor management and greed has taken over................
Sales (Current Employee) – Home office based – August 22, 2017
I have been with MSPARK for many, many years and it has gone downhill steadily especially since the new CEO and Senior management team has taken over. It is not the same company of 10 years ago. Family is no longer a consideration at this company. The work culture has DRASTICALLY diminished and has ONLY become about revenue. The company has cut our commissions and pay but has increased their EBITDA (Bottom Line) by over $4 Miilion dollars this year alone. This is due to the money taken from the reps and cutting benefits. There are many people looking to make change from MSPARK but live in rural areas so it is harder for them to make that change. There has been people fired due to them not hitting their monthly budget , even when they hit their numbers for several months in a row. MSPARK talks a big game but does not back it up, Its all about revenue to them as reps loose their homes to foreclosure.
Please take heed from one of the top reps in the company, as soon as I find another viable option I will be leaving as well.
Poor Management, Greed, Very poor culture, dishonesty, mixed signals
A good place to work if you want to be overworked, stressed, and underpaid
Account Manager (Former Employee) – Helena, AL – June 24, 2017
The management is not trained to supervise the employees in an effective way. The responsibilities are not evenly distributed among team members which leads to resentment among employees. And the pay is not nearly enough for the amount of stress involved in the job. Also there is too much favoritism among the management. Furthermore, the management gossips among co-workers about other co-workers. I would say that the problem is definitely within management within account services. The turnover rate is high as to be expected. I would definitely think twice about accepting a position here or if you do don't talk to anyone and stick to yourself.
Free lunches every now and then
Dropped their matching 401k plan, professionalism lacking, and management not qualified.
Copy Clerk (Current Employee) – Brompton, AL – May 15, 2017
I have worked here for 2 years and i completely love this job. The people are great, the hours are great, but the only down fall is that it does not pay enough. But as far as management and the employees you cannot beat this place. Great job to have if you don't have so much to pay.
