Sales Lead (Former Employee), Northridge, CA – May 23, 2015
Pros: Working with people
Cons: Low pay, last minute schedules, no benefits
Everyday I opened I would set up the cart. I would then pull people in, sit them down, do a demonstration, and convince them to buy. Often they would buy for the price I gave them, but many time I had – more... to barter to make the sale, common at kiosks. The management wasn't very good. My first bosses were very manipulative and cruel, often making employees cry. I disliked them as bosses but outside of work they were good people so I put up with it. My next boss was Israeli and admitted to not knowing how to work with Americans, which caused him problems so he had a hard time how to convince us to sell, raised the price of the products, and didn't understand that people couldn't afford our products in that location so he would get upset with us for it. Some of my coworkers were good people, but some would try to cause drama with each other, which I always managed to stay out of. The hardest part was convincing random people to buy my overpriced product in a very short amount of time. I did, however, like working with people and talking to new individuals everyday. – less
Data Entry Specialist (Former Employee), Jersey City, NJ – August 13, 2013
Cons: short breaks, short lunch
This was my first job as a working teen. They geared me for what the real corporate world was built like and I appreciated. The management was very accepting of my short coming and lack of knowledge when – more... it came to certain computer functions. Though i lacked some knowledge they made it a key to teach as we went along with the project. The hardest part about the job was leaving the job. It is a very family oriented place that once you left, you felt as though you left a part of you there. I enjoyed my time at ISO and I truly to appreciate all they've done for me there. – less
unrealistic expectations, no work life balance, management out of touch with staff
Clinical Analyst (Former Employee), PCI Dept – March 29, 2013
Pros: co-workers, vacation time
Cons: no work life balance, manditory overtime, ever changing expectations
Company has had rapid growth. Management did not plan ahead and departmental employees are now in mandated overtime. You can plan on working at least 10-12 hours a day, with some employees working up to – more... 15 hours a day. The overtime has been occurring for months and doesn't seem to be getting any better. Management unwilling to listen to the employees or ask for input. No work life balance, expectation is that all company needs will be fulfilled ahead of any personal or family obligations. You are expected to change personal plans without prior notice to meet company needs. Many employees have been working 7 days a week. The benefit package is average with the exception of vacation days which this company offers more than the usual, however, with the current work load and departmental policies it is sometimes difficult to be able to take vacation when you want to. Many mixed messages and different instructions depending on the manager you are talking to.
On the flip side the best part of this job is your co-workers. They are dedicated and hard working.
If you are happy in having a job that consumes your life, this is the job for you. If you have interests outside your job or a family you may want to look elsewhere. – less
