Company Culture

Due to the fact that the vast majority of the hundreds of employees are college students, it makes for a pretty fun atmosphere. Lots of free food and such, work parties, contests, etc.

Support from management

Literally all management at this company is completely and utterly incompetent. These people don't have two brain cells to rub together, but they talk down to every one of the lower level employees (who again, are all undergraduate or graduate students), treating them like they're morons and babying them. It's painful to watch.

Teamwork

They really encourage everyone to be collaborative (often in very condescending ways, but they do encourage it, so whatever).

Internal Communication

I can't remember a single time that a policy changed at this company (which happens ALL the time) and I didn't get 10 different answers from 5 people about what we were supposed to be doing.

Career Development

No room whatsoever for upward mobility, although they like to pretend that getting laterally promoted is upward mobility

Office / Work Environment

It's one giant open floor plan office with a handful of cubicles for IT, HR, and scheduling. There is one window, and it's covered up. You're required to lock up any personal items other than water bottles (i.e. phones, music players, books, pencils/pens, paper, etc.) in lockers outside the production floor. Computers are unable to surf the web. It's bleak. Oh, so bleak.

Work-Life Balance

They make a great effort to work with everyone's schedules since most of the employees are students. However, I've also seen lots of my coworkers get screwed over with their schedules, being scheduled last minute to work at times that they have class or mandatory school events and then getting written up or fired for not showing up to a shift that they didn't know they were supposed to work.

Workplace Safety

There's a security guard and two sets of doors to badge in through outside the office.

Challenging Work

Mind numbing.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Fire everyone and start over with people who actually know how to run a company. Not force employees to either pay for parking or park in the light rail Park and Ride parking lot half a mile away.

What I like about the company

They have a nice mission, and make things a lot easier on a lot of students who end up having to take out loans.

What I dislike about the company

Terrible management. Depressing office. Did I mention terrible incompetent management?

Overall compensation for your work

Average to low.

Environmental Friendliness

Average. No recycling program in place at the time of my employ.

Work-Life Balance

Although college "class schedule" is considered, testing and study time were not considered at the time of my employ.

Handicapped Accessibility

There was not an "easy", timely, way to enter/exit the facility; there are no easily accessed ramps, elevator at the time of my employ.

Workplace Safety

I do not recall if exits are clearly marked. At the time of my employ, environmentals were not controlled (heat in winter, cool in summer)

Challenging Work

The work was challenging, but not insurmountable. I took great pleasure and pride in assuring customer satisfaction.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Take time to get to recognize each employee as "valued", as a valued team member, and valued as a "larger" part of the whole.

What I like about the company

The location of employ was on the campus where I attend college.

What I dislike about the company

At the time of my employ, seating was entirely too close to the other person. Some sort of partitions would have been nice in order to communicate with the customer. Customers complained about the noise level.
