Catherine Zeta-Jones Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback
Catherine Zeta-Jones born 25 September 1969, is a Welsh actress. Born and raised in Swansea, Zeta-Jones aspired to be an actress from a young age. As a child, she played roles in the West End productions of the musicals Annie and Bugsy Malone.
An article posted at Nicky Swift about: Why Hollywood dropped Catherine Zeta-Jones,
Her marriage troubles In 2013, People reported that Zeta-Jones and Douglas were quietly living apart, and her rep confirmed they were working on their marriage. The pair eventually reconciled and seemed stronger than ever in 2016, but even so, their widely reported personal issues have detracted from the actress' professional pursuits.
She's not 'indie' Zeta-Jones' resume touts big budget flicks, such as The Mask of Zorro (1998) and Chicago, opposite other A-list co-stars, but those roles can dry up as actresses mature. Zeta-Jones never pursued independent film projects, so she doesn't have those credentials to return to when major motion pictures stop calling. Indie films have rejuvenated other actresses' stalled careers, but that may not be an avenue Zeta-Jones can pursue comfortably.
She has battled bipolar disorder Zeta-Jones went public with her bipolar disorder diagnosis in 2011. She told Good Housekeeping (via the Express), "Finding out that it was called something was the best thing that ever happened to me! The fact that there was a name for my emotions and that a professional could talk me through my symptoms was very liberating. There are amazing highs and very low lows. My goal is to be consistently in the middle. I'm in a very good place right now. A lot of that is to do with the fact that I'm much more knowledgeable about what I call my pain in the ass." While it's absolutely terrific that Zeta-Jones has been candid about her struggles and possibly helped others battling the same condition by sharing her experience, her revelation also suggests that the grueling pace and high demands of moviemaking may not complement her overall health and happiness. Perhaps the reason we haven't heard much from Zeta-Jones is not because Hollywood won't cast her, but because she has conscientiously decided to put Hollywood in her rear-view mirror in order to prioritize her health. Regardless, we applaud her.
She's spending more time with Michael Having endured Douglas' battle with stage IV tongue cancer and their marital woes, these A-List stars have seemingly slowed their careers to focus more on family. Speaking with Independent News Service, Douglas said he and Zeta-Jones are "tighter than ever" thanks to the "new outlook on life" he arrived at following his scary diagnosis. "Family gives me more purpose than any other thing in my life," he said. Zeta-Jones echoed the sentiment in an interview with AARP, saying, "For anyone facing a challenge like cancer, it focuses you on what's important. You realize precious moments are something you can't take for granted." With Douglas swapping his busy movie schedule for more time with family, it seems practical for Zeta-Jones to do the same.
She's been too busy curating her insanely opulent life With a combined net worth of just under $200 million dollars, Zeta-Jones and Douglas never have to step foot in front of a camera again if they don't want to. According to a Daily Mail profile titled Zeta-Jones' "zillionaire life," she has embraced the option to stay off-screen in favor of tending to her luxurious lifestyle. With five swanky homes spread across the globe, including a $5 million apartment overlooking Central Park in New York City and a "holiday home" in Majorca, Spain, Zeta-Jones has spent the last few years appointing them with features that would cost normal people at least a year's salary. Like her walk-in-closet that's so large it literally has hallways. She documents the fabulousness on her Instagram, which includes everything from snaps of her cliffside lunch in panoramic Parma, Italy, to the pricey artwork lining the walls of her abodes. With a real life like that, who needs filters?
She doesn't have a signature Think about it: Zeta-Jones doesn't have a cinematic signature or a "type." Yes, she's done musical films, such as Chicago and Rock of Ages (2012), but she's not the quirky sidekick or the tomboyish leading lady. She's often a glam goddess, which can describe lots of actresses. While having a particular type can often work against performers, branding them as one-notes, not being typecast as anything may have worked against Zeta-Jones. She's one of many gorgeous and talented actresses with Oscars that don't have that one unique thing that makes them stand out from the rest. Lots of Academy Award winners fade into the background after they take home the Oscar. This could be her fate, too.
Her comeback role was controversial Zeta-Jones' comeback role of sorts was her turn as Oscar-winning actress Olivia de Havilland in Ryan Murphy's 2017 FX anthology series Feud. It was her highest-profile project since 2013's RED 2, and according to Vanity Fair, the part would offer "fabulous, scene-stealing supporting capacity" for Zeta-Jones, thus providing a glamorous reintroduction to her adoring fans. Though Zeta-Jones earned praise for the part — The Hollywood Reporter said she "delivers glamor from another era" — there was one viewer who didn't exactly appreciate the performance: Olivia de Havilland. According to Indiewire, the legendary actress sued Murphy, claiming that "the depiction of her are 'pure fiction,' 'fake,' and 'patently false.'" The suit even names Zeta-Jones personally, stating, "All statements made by Zeta-Jones as Olivia de Havilland in this fake interview are completely false." Not good. Granted, Zeta-Jones didn't write the part, but it may not have been an ideal choice to be at the center of such a controversy just as she was getting back into the game.
She made a conscious shift in the projects she pursues While it's clear that Zeta-Jones decided to press pause on Hollywood for a while, that certainly doesn't mean she intends to go away forever. In fact, her return to TV after decades of success on the big screen was a calculated move. In an interview with Richard Lawson of Vanity Fair, Zeta-Jones admits that she sought out Murphy to join "his repertory company" on Feud after she felt "the ground shifting beneath her career" as she edges closer to age 50. "It's exactly what I wanted!" Zeta-Jones told Lawson of joining Murphy's "troupe," which includes veteran actresses like Jessica Lange, Kathy Bates, Susan Sarandon, and Angela Bassett. And it's not as though Hollywood isn't paying attention to what Murphy's been doing with his growing stable of veteran actors. At the time of this writing, he'd earned 20 Emmy nominations and 4 wins, and that doesn't even scratch the surface of the awards show recognition his casts and crew have also racked up over the years.
She's choosing risky roles To further prove that Zeta-Jones has pivoted to a new career trajectory, look no further than her role in Cocaine Godmother, the Lifetime — Yes, that Lifetime — biopic about infamous Miami drug lord Griselda Blanco. While this seems like a bold choice for Zeta-Jones, the part is already proving to be controversial, and not just because Blanco was a truly horrific human being who allegedly began committing murders when she was just 11-years-old. According to the Miami New Times, casting Zeta-Jones as Blanco is puzzling for two reasons. First, Zeta-Jones is Welsh, and as the Times points out, she doesn't have a great track record portraying Latina characters (e.g. her less-than-stellar accent in The Mask of Zorro.) Second, Blanco was not exactly known as a stunner in the looks department. Granted, the argument can be made that leading roles go to stars, and stars are disproportionately beautiful compared to the rest of society, but with the growing cry for diversity in such roles, Zeta-Jones has found herself in yet another inadvertent firestorm.
Administrator (Former Employee) says"I worked at this company and tried to increase revenue by making a few changes that would benefit the company and its staff. They always had a negative answer. When a former administrator wanred my job, I was the one they let go Employees don't matter. Compensation and benefits are the worst in the SE/NE Pennsylvania market. Owner looking out ONLY for himself."
Therapist (Current Employee) says"if you're looking for a company that supports its employees, please don't come here. The upper management is all either related or best friends so the second one of them doesn't like you they try their hardest to push you out. They then continue to talk to current employees about former employees and speak badly about them to us. It is a very uncomfortable situation to be in. They say that this job is flexible, however most of the time I am at work. There is no life-work balance with this job whatsoever. We have to work weekends, are on call 24/7, and really get no break from the clientele"
Program Director (Former Employee) says"Long hours of work, the company do not help the sites. They fire people they do not like. They tell you they will help you but when the time comes when you need help, they are no where to be found."
Social Worker certified peer specialist (Former Employee) says"Worked for years. Was told how great I was with clients. Did not receive ONE PENNY RAISE IN YEARS. They will not even pay for training. I would not recommend anyone to work here."
Therapist/Counselor (Current Employee) says"This company has deteriorated by way of management's lack of care or concern for thier workers, unless it's profitable, like pushing you to work billable hours even if you have your 40. They will create & fabricate write ups to cover thier own mistakes and not follow thier own policies regarding procedure. Your worth is not valued by this company, thier own worth is, as in monetary. I have lost a lot of great co-workers to management's "happy to terminate" attitude and thier self-absorbed efforts to micromanage others. Cons: Everything else"
Resident Advisor (Current Employee) says"There is no growing in this company as well as you not having a voice in anything. Hours and shifts are given as management sees fit. There is no type of raises in pay rate while employed. Company does not take care of you and they are really stingy with paying. They are currently under review by DPW and are under a provisional license due to their lack of professionalism. Some sites are under staffed as others are over staffed and many employees are over worked and under payed!!! Cons: Everything else"
Residential Support Staff (Former Employee) says"The admin team responsible for the two personal care settings in Northeast PA are irresponsible and unprofessional on every level possible. Most staff that are hired are underqualified, so expect to be working in a disorganized, unprofessional setting. There are MANY flaws that would easily be handled if admin did their jobs properly. However, most of them work from the comfort of their office or home and employees working directly with the individuals are left to fend for themselves. Perhaps two of the only benefits to working here is that you establish bonds with the residents that you will never forget, and there are an abundance of hours that can be picked up due to short staffing. If desired, you can attain overtime on a weekly basis. However, that comes with the risk of potentially working with staff who do not follow company polices. There is little to no disciplinary action taken when policies are not followed, creating an unsafe setting for residents and staff. Cons: short breaks, understaffing, unstructured admin team, lack of boundaries and ethical standing, high tolerance of unprofessionalism, unsafe work environment created by employees and admin"
Behavioral Support Staff (Former Employee) says"I thought this was going to be a great place to work and use my education and passion for working with kids but I was whole-heartedly disappointed. Cons: Everything else"
Family Based Mental Health Service Program Director (Former Employee) says"Supervisor was unprofessional and lacked leadership skills. Supervisor micromanages and is focused solely on negatives and does not recognize employee growth and improvement. Cons: negative/toxic work environment"
Residential Advisor (Former Employee) says"This was not a good place to work. Lack of communication. Was usually always short staffed and I would have to call around to find coverage for the next shift. False accusations were made against me. Due to this, they sent me to an undesirable location that was twice the drive time. I was cleared of the accusations and still was not able to go back. Cons: Pay, poor staffing"
Mental Health Worker (Current Employee) says"Work way to much for the low pay rate and the hours are terrible. Typical day starts at 10am and goes until 8 pm and that does not include writing notes for clients. Company is very strict about how long it takes to write notes and do all the other useless busy work each week so you don't have enough time to get everything done."
Housing Specialist (Former Employee) says"Not impressed with this agency. Knew when hired they lost the county contract. Realized soon WHY! Nvr trained me....just thrown into it!!!! Backstabbers too"
School Counselor (Former Employee) says"not appreciated there at all you are just a number and if they feel that you are no longer needed then they will find a reason to get rid of you I saw this with many people"
Program Assist. (Former Employee) says"Absolutely no job security! They will fire an employee for no reason at all, will write an employee up for things that happen after work hours...Have no respect for their employees"
Blended Case Manager (Former Employee) says"I enjoy working with my clients but some I feel like shouldn't be in the program or have graduated the program and wont leave or we are not allowed to discharge. There is a lack of compassion for staff or anything to keep them wanting to work for the company. As long as productivity is being met with little of other time then you're golden. Many of the staff feel overwhelmed and when the concern is told to supervisors there is no help or recommendation to alleviate the stress of felling like you're drowning in the job. Cons: Dont know when you're going to eat lunch, bosses"
Residential Advisor (Former Employee) says"it a good place to work to help client and assist the mental ill client. but the supervisor are not on point working with staff or client needs. they need new management. Cons: poor supervisor. poor staff with limit experience"
Residential Advisor (Former Employee) says"Enjoyed the atmosphere and the quality of work issued. Very relaxed and organized and structured. The food was prepared and served by employees. the food we cooked was nutritional. Cons: Na"
RESIDENTIAL AIDE (Former Employee) says"No Communication at the time that I work at the company wish they’d have better communication better supervisor skills other than that the residence was nice to work with better staffing And coverage Other then that company was great"
Certified Peer Specialist (Current Employee) says"My typical day at work is being out and spending time with my peers/clients. I work in Mental health and have learned so much about how the stigma placed on us (I suffer from Bipolar 2 as does Catherine Zeta Jones) is so unwarranted. We can be productive. We actually have feelings and empathy. The reason my job was created was because we service the peer through reality as for years they were treated through the theory. It truly is amazing. Cons: administration could use some organization"
RA (Former Employee) says"The job is okay, it's management that makes the job miserable. They don't listen, they don't take responsibility and they put more on staff than they their supposed to. Too much gossip and back stabbing. The work place is hostile, the hardest part of the job is getting the work done that your assigned to. The most enjoyable part is the residents. Cons: Management"
Matthew says"After they received my parcels they didn't log them to my account, I had to contact their customer support every single time to assist them at searching for my parcel and if I was lucky enough they managed it to add my parcels to my account within 4 business days. This forwarding service is not reliable and if you are expecting an urgent parcel then Skypax is definitely the wrong company. They are extremely slow and the shipping costs are very expensive."
Sofiya Carlton says"UK Skypax is very slow service. Takes minimum 2-3 days for parcel to show up in your account after it delivered to them. This is my first time with Skypax and experience is totally different from US Borderlinx - all steps (parcel appear on account, merging, shipping) was the same or next day action. On Skypax UK i selected option Merge packages, and apparently you can’t ship them and you need to wait until parcels physically merged. 4 days after still waiting for this to happen and I still can’t select option to ship while seeing packages on my account waiting for merging process to complete. The reply from customer service “waiting for our team to response when merging package can be completed ” as a response to my two emails asking when this should be expected. Do not use Skypax if you wish your goods to be forwarded within reasonably quick period. Or give it at least 7-10 days for processing - maybe for some it’s quick & fast? Yet to see how long it will take to ship and deliver"
Richard says"I used this company to transport a watch from USA to UK. The watch was left on my doorstep when I was out and in direct view of the road and it was stolen. This company washed their hands of my problem If you wish to ship goods, use a different company. This happened before Corona virus non- signature measures were in place."
bob pelekanakis says"I paid a lot of money (without being given a choice for an alternative) for quick expediting but the delivery still took weeks to finalize. Not at all satisfactory."
