Administrator/Clerk (Current Employee) –  PennsylvaniaAugust 16, 2018
The daily tasks for the work environment make the day go by quickly. There are not enough hours in a typical day to complete all tasks assigned to position. The greatest part of the job is the people. The worst part of the job is inadequate compensation.
Pros
Friendly

Republic is a hard place to work if you want to advance your career
SITE MANAGER (Former Employee) –  Page, AZAugust 15, 2018
Republic goes through so many managers because it changes its missions every 28 days. is hard to survive as a mid level or front line manager. If your not caring about getting to the top Republic has a spot for you. The only problem is they expect you to work like those people who are trying to get to the top. Lots of blood sweat and tears money is alright for a while but you get no love and you ll loose some years.

The communication at Republic is almost non-existent. We had no idea what was going on anywhere else in the company since we were moved away from the corporate office.

Hard place to work
OPERATIONS MANAGER (Former Employee) –  Atlanta, GAAugust 15, 2018
This is a company that is controlled by the Union. it is very hard as a Manager to get things completed because the Unions will file a complaint if you try to get the employees to actually work and not play while on the clock. As a manage would not recommend this company at all.
Pros
Good Pay
Cons
Dealing with a strong Union

Preventative Maintence Technician (Current Employee) –  long beach,caAugust 14, 2018
good place to work due to union managers can use more training in people skills they preach safety safety safety but do not lead by example and when one works slow to be safe they are on your back to hurry up and finish

Republic What???
Customer Service Tier II Representative (Former Employee) –  Chandler, AZAugust 14, 2018
I work in the Chandler office in National Account and people are leaving every week. At what point is upper management (above supervisors boss) is going to step in and find out all the finger pointing and all the fingers pointed back at them.
They are careless with their employees; the only care about money. Its horrible that if your not in the "mean clique" or "cut throat"; you are not accepted. I have seen 5 people go with longevity.
Supervisors don't know what the associates do so they cant train.
The trainer only gossips and takes multiple smoke breaks. No official training.
Management is awful
Pros
PTO days
Cons
Workload, No work/life balance, you will never hear positive reinforcement

Blood pumping job
Sorter (Current Employee) –  Oberlin, OHAugust 14, 2018
Great place to work at. Everyone is family. Long hours but doing that type of job makes you feel like you’ve been working for an hour long. The pay isn’t great but the hours make up for it and the benefits also. You’ll be gone along time from your family so make sure they understand that.
Pros
Long hours
Cons
Little pay

Call Center environment is terrible
Customer Resource Representative (Current Employee) –  Chandler, AZAugust 13, 2018
Managers don't know what they are doing and nothing is running smoothly at the new Call Centers. Even though other operations are not functioning properly, the customer resource reps are expected to function at a very high level with unrealistic productivity demands. The pressure is from productivity, compliance, adherence, error rate, attendance and it is relentless.
The supervisors are never available to assist the newer employees with questions about how to do their jobs and the rudeness is worse than ever.
No surprise the turnover is unreal with people quitting before they even finish the classroom training; or they quit the first week on the phones.
Unfortunately nothing on the horizon will make this a good place to work any time soon.
If you are looking for a job, keep looking.
Pros
new professional office setting
Cons
demands on job performance that are not realistic to meet

Frantic work place
Sales Representative (Current Employee) –  Philadelphia, PAAugust 13, 2018
Turnover was a problem with this organization. In the last 4 years they have cycled through 4 direct supervisors, 3 sales managers, and
2 vice presidents. There is always a change of direction in how to accomplish goals making it difficult to know which direction to proceed.
Pros
Lot of opportunity
Cons
Staff turn over

CUSTOMER SERVICE AGENT (Former Employee) –  Anaheim, CAAugust 11, 2018

Pros
no pros
Cons
management does not care about the stress there and how it affects the staff

The only good thing is the pay
Consultant (Current Employee) –  Chandler, AZAugust 11, 2018
This company can't keep it's word on anything. They pay well but it's only because the work is awful and unstructured. The dress code changes all the time and they don't have it posted anywhere so you can be in violation suddenly and not even know. They do not care about employees and it seems like they do not use common sense when making new policies. They hire a large amount of people expecting some to quit of be fired and provide the bare minimum for training. They change the way things are done and don't tell anyone until the morning of in an email but then don't allow you any time off the phones to review the changes. The call center is only a few years old but they still can't figure out how to properly motivate or train their staff. There are just so many things wrong with working here. The only reason to do it is for the pay and having weekends off. I am constantly feeling like I am going to get fired, even though I always exceed every single goal. I leave work and look for another job almost every day. Don't work here.
Pros
Pay, schedule
Cons
Consistency, management, atmosphere, everything besides the 2 pros
