This is an okay job if you just want part-time random work with no security.
Mom365/BRMC-Corbin, KY Infant Photographer (Current Employee), London, KYDecember 16, 2014
Pros: babies, photography
Cons: no breaks, sales, not much creativity allowed
There is no typical day at work so if you like inconsistency this is the job for you. You never know if you're working or not until the day before at midnight depending on what the birth rate of babies were for the day. The hardest part of the job is the sales pitch. The packages are expensive, and although they may be a value in some areas I feel as if they are too high for around here. The most enjoyable part of the job can also be the most stressful but of course the babies and the new parents.

Good way to gain industry experience....not necessarily a long term plan
(dba) Ashley Ellis - Recruiter (Current Employee), Naperville, ILAugust 26, 2014
Pros: monthly dinner meetings, work 35 hours get paid for 40, cool staff, music pumping all day
Cons: no direction, very expensive benefits, limited resources to complete, petty high school like drama within the ranks.
Typical Work Day: Morning meeting (either an icebreaker game or a yell festt) for 30 minutes. Spend 2-3 hours canvassing careerbuilder-linkedin-dice or file cabinets for candidates. Call 40-50 candidates, try to interview 2 and hopefully submit them to open requisitions with active clients. Have lunch, repeat after lunch. Occasionally there will be 50-75 cold calls to generate clients so there re positions to fill. It's also common to spend -2 hours daily coaching people on what to say during interviews.

Most enjoyable part of the job is when you close a deal and see a 3-4k commission check. Hardest part is if the employee doesn't work out after 30-60 days and all of the commission has to be returned. Happens more often than one might think.

Co-workers are an eclectic bunch but offices are very small so everybody knows everybody. his can be a gift or a curse depending on lifes circumstances at any given moment.

Management is unique, it appears that with somewhat high turnover the key to becoming management is simply to last. The managers aren't necessarily wizards of the world but people who know all the legacy systems.

I've learned how to negotiate with C-Suite clientele and fine tune the consultative sales approach.

general labor (Current Employee), Oklahoma City, OKSeptember 16, 2013
Pros: half priced pizza
Cons: minimum wage
We make fresh unbaked pizza for people to take home and bake. We make the dough two hours before the store opens at 11am. Most of the food preparation is made though out the day. Multi-tasking between Phone orders, pizza assembly, and cashier is required
