Administrative Assisant (Former Employee), Jackson, MO – August 20, 2014
Pros: friendly co-workers, fast-paced environment
Cons: no benefits, no insurance
Became proficient at Excel, and other Microsoft Office programs. Management was always asking me to add more tasks to my daily jobs and gave me much praise. I loved staying busy. The hardest part of the job was leaving because I had to move when I got married to a new area.
Manpower are poorly managed. Very unfair pay rates between BT staff and Manpower staff within the centre. Someone on a BT contract could be doing the same role as yourself, they would be on a rate of around £8-£10, while a manpower employee would be on £6.20/£6.50.
High stress environments and forever changing rules or guidelines

Call center environments are known to be relatively stressful but manageable. Normally. This call center experience was awful, poor management, poor planning and extremely poor communication between employees from bottom to top.

Pros: good people
Cons: not enough hours
My day consist of friendly,and hard-working employees. Our typical day is to sweep the entire building. Remove all the spider webs from the facility. Then proceed to enter the building to vacuum,take out trash,dust,polish,sanitize employee break rooms,and restrooms. Lastly, restock all the bathrooms,and kitchen. My employers has taught me how to become – more... self-reliant, and organised. The hardest part of this job is that I, had to say good bye good people. But the most enjoyable part of it was meeting new people all the time. As well as my employers gave me a chance to show my leadership skills. – less

Office Assistant (Former Employee), Laurens, SC – August 13, 2014
It was a pleasure working for this company. I improved my administrative skills. I was appreciative of my oral communication class in college, because it helped me with presenting orientations to the new employees. I was able to learn who was really wanting a job and who was just going through the application process to keep getting unemployment checks. – more... It was a realization for me to see who "plays" the system. – less
