    I worked at PGI full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Growing business, fast paced traditional and trend setting vending, current progressive product lines

    Cons

    The only long term employees are all related. Everyone else is expendable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put the company 1st, clear out the top heavy all in the family management team down to the productive people and stop using PGI employment as a form of family welfare program at the cost of business.

    I worked at PGI full-time

    Pros

    I can't think of any Pros

    Cons

    SC Manager that is never on the floor and has no idea what is going on. Constantly changing schedule (up to 7x a day). No rotating shifts, which means if you got stuck on a late shift, you will stay in this shift until someone new gets hired. Tiny pay. Call volumes of up to 80-100 calls a day per CS agent. At the same time you will respond to about 30-60 mails a day and you will be asked to take chats, even while you are on the phone with a customer. In addition to that, you will be pulled on conference calls up to 7 times a day. An ape house is a better alternative!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pros

    People you work with are nice

    Cons

    Superiors are ridiculous, ask why you want to take a vacation day and what you'll be doing during that day off.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit, really.
