Aspire Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback
Carer Assistant (Former Employee) says"Zero contract hours change your calls without informing you don't pay travel time for walkers but an allowance is given for drivers no pay for training did care certificate putting a lot of hours completing this don't get paid for that appointments made to speak to a certain person in the office can wait for over an hour before they dain to see you don't give enough time for walkers to get to the calls in time take calls of you Cons: Everything"
Quality Supervisor (Former Employee) says"I actually had the job before I interviewed with Aspire so it was simply formality that I had to go there for a drug screen/background check. There was a daycare being ran out of the office as well as no adult really present to handle what I needed done. The teenage daughter of a worker handled me. Any promotion where they offered additional money as incentive to show up to work, they NEVER followed thru on, they never followed thru on anything really. They forgot I worked for them and basically knew nothing about me or my position. Basically, they sucked Cons: Dirty, trashy, place is a complete mess"
CNA - Certified Nursing Assistant (Current Employee) says"The management at this place sucks!!! It could be better if they train management better let them know everyone from housekeeping to the cna's deserve respect!!! And their kids are at home!!!"
Workers (Former Employee) says"A nasty and confusing place to work. Management was so out of touch with the reality of working that it was embarrassing. Bullying culture and weak support structures that under minded confidence. A culture of lies and intimidation that crushed the spirit of staff. Recent reports suggest that its same old same old toto this day. Avoid"
Night Shift Cleaner (Former Employee) says"during my time there, I was given no contract for a year, the management was non existent, place was an overall circus ran by a fifer with no teeth and a tuft of hair."
RHA (Current Employee) says"The managers refuse to help out their employees. Cons: No breaks, Bad Management, Bullying"
Care Taker for disabled Adults (Former Employee) says"overworked, drama, gossip, too much to handle, your just a maid, not paid enough, you can get hurt by the disabled people, they never get reprimanded for their negative actions Cons: too much to put down"
Supervisor/Team Leader (Current Employee) says"A really stressful and underpaid workplace with unprofessional managers and overload of work. Nice clients and lovely team to work with Cons: worst manager team"
RHA (Current Employee) says"I am not happy working with aspire. Ready to find something that I don’t need to work everyday all day to make money. They also do not take the pandemic seriously."
electricion (Former Employee) says"Very controlling and bullying environment. You are treated like a squaddie. The only good thing is the pay. I couldn't recommend them at all. They forced me out with wrong accusations of timekeeping and mistrust of my work, yet I proved them wrong on several occasions. I left of my own accord rather than face another made up discaplinery. Frankly I think that they are top heavy with magemment."
Service à domicile (Current Employee) says"Aucuns avantages sociaux si vous ne faites pas suffisamment d'heures alors que c'est eux qui vous proposent des missions à leur bon vouloir, je ne recommande pas cette entreprise, de plus si vous ne faites pas la démarche de demander du travail alors que vous êtes en place , on ne vous propose rien, tout fonctionne par connaissances, c'est lamentable."
Support Worker/Carer (Former Employee) says"Difficult job with no on call or support from managers, some staff family so interfered with your job roll, not enough staff for the amount of residence Cons: Horrible atmosphere"
BHT (Former Employee) says"This particular program of Aspire is awful and super unprofessional! The director is a bully and refuses to take care of the basic needs of her staff! Advocates there are In cliques like middle school children late to work/early to leave daily and management is fully aware of this but refuses to do anything. During this time of coronavirus the staff and residents are constantly being put in danger of exposure we are sharing a old style thermometer with the residents and wrapping it in Saran Wrap as cover also all other programs were given masks by their director but our program we have to use the same mask for a whole week before getting a new one!!. This program is run by a ruthless and very unprofessional director that has everyone else doing her work while she lords over all like a Queen! She needs to made accountable for her actions no one will want to work under those conditions. The ceo needs to be made aware of how the employees and staff really feelThe directors boss has been made aware of all that goes on but refuses to do anything or"
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) says"Basically you go door to door bothering people twice a day trying to sell them services even when they have ‘no soliciting’ clearly posted at their doors. Then the work day is like 10-12 hours a day to include 6-8 hours of the door to door part. They put up a facade by having everyone come in wearing business suits but really they’re totally unnecessary because you switch out to street clothes to do the door to door portion. You do all this without getting paid. Most people I talked to were ‘in a slump’ with their sales and hadn’t made commission in weeks. They prey on people looking for a good job by making empty promises on becoming a ‘manager’ of your own store. Then they try to cram this ‘ company culture’ down your throat so you feel inclined to stay. Only for weak minded and desperate people, or scammers, in my opinion. They’re constantly changing their job description on Craigslist as well, so they can lure in unsuspecting people looking for a good job. If your on the fence about them, don’t waste your time. I worked one day and saw past the shroud. Cons: You don’t get paid and you work crazy hours"
Health services technician (Former Employee) says"They watch the workers but whose really watching the patients. Misplaced concerns , and unprofessional individuals. The job was rewarding and I enjoyed seeing simes on faces that came in full of pain. Then certain staff was constantly reducing the morale of individual we serve. Cons: Unprofessional individuals can kill a person or persons"
Sales Associate (Current Employee) says"I'm not the typical person to write a lousy review, however this is the exception. The hiring managers gave me misleading information made the job sound incredibly lucrative during the interview, but left out key details and drawbacks. I informed them I needed to make $20 an hour (including commission) in order to take the job. They told me that wouldn't be an issue at all, however after working there for almost a month and working hard every day, I have yet to make more than minimum wage. They declined to tell me before signing paperwork that commission doesn't roll in until I generate as much money as it costs to pay me hourly. Wouldn't recommend this job to anybody."
Patient Advocate Representative (Former Employee) says"Hired to market services. Company name not known in the community, if it was recognized by a customer it was negative. Owner unrealistic expectations. No benefits for 90 ,days. Pay for your own background check, mileage .25 per mile. Look elsewhere. Cons: Everything else."
Training Specialist (Current Employee) says"My day consist of cleaning the house while the ladies are asleep. I've learned that if this not what you wont as a career then don't make it one.Just get the experience and move on."
Life Skill Coach (Former Employee) says"The worst thing working there is that even the directors can't keep confidentiality and it really lost my trust. The code of ethics were not followed most of the time. Cons: Poor management, lack of confidentiality, favoritism, poor management"
Support Worker (Former Employee) says"Support workers really nice and lovely service users but the management are nasty peaple. Rota's are a shambles and must be willing to work whatever shift they put you down for."
Current Employee - Associate says"I have been working at Aspire Team full-time for less than a year Cons: I specifically told them during my phone interview that I wasn’t interested in working for a company that does sales, anything commission based, or anything with a quota. They told me that it was nothing like that, and that this job is a customer service position that helps pre existing clients that have already made inquiries. When I had my video interview, the hiring manager said that they like calling it “standards” not “quotas” but you need to make a certain number of sales each week. It’s a pyramid scheme because they give you a list of peoples information and want you to sell faster internet to people that don’t need it, and you only make 35% of your sale, the rest of the money goes to the branch manager. This has nothing to do with customer service and it’s pathetic that they’ll say anything just to get people in their company to make sales."
Current Employee - Marketing Associate says"I have been working at Aspire Team full-time for less than a year Cons: Minimum wage, unclear expectations, drug testing, field work, door-to-door pamphlet marketing"
Former Employee - Sales Associate says"I worked at Aspire Team full-time for more than a year Cons: It is door to door selling ATT. My first paycheck was 'training pay' and after three weeks totaled $112 dollars."
Former Employee - Recruiter says"I worked at Aspire Team full-time for less than a year Cons: There is no training, they just throw you into it and let you drown with barely any help. They said they will train you for a week or so, but it is really only two days. The job description is complete different than from the job posting. So be prepare for that. You are forced to lie towards customers and people who are trying to find a job. There is no work life balance. They make it sound like they always host events but nothing really and a lot of favoritism that goes around. Also this company forces you to lie towards the customers and people who are applying. There is so much lying around that the environment gets really toxic. When you try to quit the position, the managers will guilt trip and yell at you to make you stay."
Current Employee - Sales Representative says"I have been working at Aspire Team full-time for less than a year Cons: Very tragic deceptive company approach! Avoid like a plague!"
Current Employee - Customer Service Representative says"I have been working at Aspire Team full-time for less than a year Cons: - It’s a “canvasing”, or door to door, 100% commission sales job. - No base pay and no benefits. - Hours are 10:00-20:00 Monday to Friday - Saturdays are encouraged and preferred. - No OT obviously - Only way to grow is to close 5 sales a week for a month, and then they “promote” you to Account Director>Assistant Manager>Manager. Sounds great but they’re all about sales. - No residuals on renewals or continued service. - If you call them out on it, they shut you out of the “offer” and try to move on to the next candidate quickly. Sounds sketch if you ask me."
Former Employee - Retail Sales Associate says"I worked at Aspire Team full-time for less than a year Cons: First, it's sales not marketing. You are hired to get people who have government benefits to sign up for free phones. In order to make commission instead of base (min wage) income, you have to get like 40 sign ups in a week which is extremely difficult as a new employee. It's basically a pyramid scheme. Supervisors make money off their team members and managers make cuts from the supervisors. So, if you aren't making commission within a few weeks, you'll be looked down upon and pressured by "higher-ups" aka wannabe managers in the sketchy company landscape. Terrible work-life balance. You're pressured to work beyond your base salary pay to make commission, even if you have no chance of hitting the mark. You're required to work 7:15 am - 4:15 pm, not including commute time. They get away with it by giving an hour break between the end of the 7:15 am meeting (8:15 am) and the required 9:15 am start time for starting sales, and always staying after 4:15 because you want to be looked at as a "hard-worker" to advance if you might be a ~chosen one~, seriously. Saturdays are required. $508 before taxes for a 6 day work week with 10 hour days on weekdays is definitely not worth it, especially when you're looked at solely for your sales numbers. They don't keep track of paychecks and hours properly. I recommend tracking every hour of work, in addition to commute and cell usage as these will sometimes only be compensated if not reminded in advance or immediately after a miss on a paycheck. High turnover Favoritism"
Current Employee - Account Director says"I have been working at Aspire Team full-time for less than a year Cons: Those great people you work with don’t see the big picture. The more you trap to do the hard work the more successful you are. Don’t waste your time accepting the job offer"
Marketing Coordinator says"I have been working at Aspire Team Cons: commission based job , fishy job"
Current Employee - Sports Marketing says"I have been working at Aspire Team full-time for more than a year Cons: No pay, commission based, you'll be standing in front of Vons asking people to donate to a cause you are unaware of."
