Pros: benefits- 401k
Cons: hours, phone job, sleazy sales tactics
The people who work here are great, that's about it. They're energetic and willing to lend a helping hand… But it is truly a struggle to get through the work day "productively". If you have zero sales background or if you have any sense of humanity, you will not fit in here. I personally could not handle the excessive and aggressive sales force they use on their potential clients as well as current clients. They are pretty relentless when it comes to calling people until they get them on the phone. Oh, and you have to meet a certain amount of phone time every day. But it's kind of hard to do when you're getting rejected all the time. And then when you finally get someone who is somewhat interested in what you have to say, they immediately turn cold when you tell them the rates these people are charging! Your co-workers quickly become your competition. Especially if you don't get along with someone in your office. They will be the first to take a client out of your base.They have a database that is filled with clients that are "owned", or have been called SO many times that they demanded to be on the DO NOT CALL list they have accumulated over the last few years. Over all, i would say this job would have to be a last resort job. If you truly can't find anything else to do… WORK HERE. The schedule is absolutely ridiculous as well. 7-5 and if you tell them you need a day off they laugh, and if you actually take a day off, they talk about you the whole day you're gone, and when you get back the next day, they treat you like an outsider. They also look at people as if they're lazy if they don't stay until 6, 7, or 8 PM. As if 10 hours of your time isn't enough already. They also threw the idea around about working weekends! HAH! The work and life balance is non existent here. Kiss your social life goodbye.
