Complete scam!
Account Manager (Current Employee) –  Indianapolis, INJanuary 11, 2017
The company sells you a dream by telling you that approaching 150 people a day at a Wal-Mart, harassing the customers by begging them to sign up for DirectV. They tell you that you can move up in the company within certain time frames, but everybody has the same position, even the "management" teams. One position, which is approaching and harassing customers for sales hoping that out of the 150 people, 2 will say yes and you will average $250/day in commission. In reality, people rarely say yes and you average about 3-4 sales per week if your lucky. Then they take your $300 base pay and subtract your commission from that and you bring home less than $150/BI-WEEKLY! In addition to that, you work about 11-12 hours per day, no overtime pay, which is a total waste of time. The team is amazing and has extremely high energy and positivity during the morning meetings, but once you hit the "field" aka Wal-mart, the job is horrible. Do not fall for this scam, you'll end up wasting time and money and gas. They send you to extremely far stores like Anderson, Noblesville, Crawfordsville, Lafayette, Greenwood, etc and do not pay you mileage. Waste of time!
Pros
Morning meetinga
Cons
Long hours, false promises, LOW PAY, begging customers for DirectV sales, and they don't pay you the base pay you're promised.

Good long term opportunity
Account Manager (Current Employee) –  Indianapolis, INOctober 19, 2016
This is a great place for someone looking for a place to "plant roots" and looking for opportunity. The opportunity for advancement is great, the team is great, its one of the best environments I have been in. That being said, if you have a hectic schedule, this is probably not the job for you. The hours are very demanding, and this is a very mentally taxing job, as they prepare you for management from day one. This is a great way to get ahead and beat the typical corporate pyramid scheme for those who are looking. You do start off selling product in a retail store, but it can be fun, and is not as bad at it first seems, the pay structure is decent. Beware they do operate on a draw (loan) system for their "base pay" so be prepared to have to go the extra mile to stay profitable weekly. The hardest part of the job is the mental taxation it takes, they do prepare you to be a manager from day one, so they expect a lot. The best part of the job is definitely the team environment, it is one of the most positive and uplifting work places one could hope for.
Pros
Great management, awesome work environment, lots of opportunity for advancement
Cons
short breaks expected, production demanded, mentally taxing, long hours

Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) –  Paducah, KYAugust 27, 2016
Not a bad place to work, raises are very rare. Shift bids every now and then to give everyone a chance to possible get a better schedule. As long as you show that you are willing to work and provide a positive attitude development leaders will try there best to work with you. The company was bought out last year so they have improved in a lot of ways. Nothing bad to say about this place, i was just ready for something new.
Pros
GREAT atmosphere
Cons
open 24 hrs even in bad weather ice storms etc

A simple job.
Customer Service Representative (CSR) (Former Employee) –  Fort Myers, FLJuly 1, 2016
Lynx is a nice place to work for if you dont mind a very basic job that does not have much of any job advancement. Management wasn't really of much assistance. The hardest part of the job was not having a variety of tasks to keep you busy.

Appointment setter (Current Employee) –  Fort Myers, FLJune 16, 2016
Lynx has a lot to offer, it's defiantly welcoming. They offer paid training, it allows you to get certified in computer and insurance skills. Any questions you may have there is always someone available to help. Constant schedules was a giant plus!

Field Support Specialist (Current Employee) –  Field Support ServicesMarch 26, 2016
This department has enough work to make the day fly by on a regular basis. I learned the intrinsic details of authorizing parts for the different insurance company. My co-workers are very helpful and kind. The hardest part of the job is balancing non-call work and normal incoming calls.
Pros
Plenty of room for advancement
Cons
Balancing phones and non-call work

Productive workplace with free food
Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) –  North Fort Myers, FLMarch 24, 2016
You have your own personal cubicle with a lock and key for any personal items you'd like to keep there. Management often buys everyone lunch and there are weekly raffles where prizes are offered. The environment is both fun and professional. You must bid for the shift you want. Management makes it unclear whether it's first come first serve, or at random. Once you're assigned you're shift, it's very difficult to get it changed. Job security depends on your attendance, advancement is highly unlikely.
Pros
Management often provides free lunches.
Cons
Shifts and scheduling aren't flexible.

Inventory Clerk (Former Employee) –  Orlando, FLDecember 14, 2015
Through the first four years, working at Lynx was a pleasure. It soured toward the end when a lot of changes happened to our department all at once, but I wouldn't hesitate to go back to this company. The people, for the most part, were friendly and willing to leave you alone so long as you did your job. The atmosphere was pretty laid back. There wasn't as much room for advancement as I would have liked, but I think working in a different department would have been better. The compensation was adequate.
