Account manager (Current Employee) – Atlanta GA – December 30, 2015
The schedule is strenuous and compensation early on is minimal. Job advancement is great if you stick it through. If your willing to brave the elements this is for you being that it's outside sales (door to door).
AT&T Representative (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – January 10, 2015
Working at Veritas was something different honestly made me step outside my comfort zone. I learned how to open up more to people and be more confident in what I do. The only dislike was that it was commission and it was dealing with working outdoors for long period of time.
Host (Former Employee) – Chesterfield, MO – December 20, 2013
It was a classy and out of the loop restaurant. We changed the menu every week meaning as a server I had to memorize everything on the menu every week. Luckily I was able to do so with ease, but still it was challenging. The managers/owners were great people who dedicated everything to this restaurant and had their son as their chef. The son was a great chef and knew what he was doing. I was a host, waiter, dishwasher, cashier and busser. In other words, I did just about every job I could have done. I enjoyed it there until I had to go back to school.
Manager in Training (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – November 30, 2013
The atmosphere in the office is fun, since the employees are encouraged to be high energy and everyone is in the same age group. Unfortunately it is a commission based job with little to no job security. The company holds a high turnover rate for a reason. You will be required to work 6 days a week for at least 12 hours a day with no off time or vacation. Also with the commission pay there is no base, which often yields small pay checks weekly, well under minimum wage. Once you drive to your designated area, which can vary from 10 mins away to an hour + away, most of your pay is gone due to just maintaining gas to keep you mobile. Every once and a while they may offer a gas card bonus but other then that you will end up coming out of pocket at least $100+ in gas alone to get you to the office, your area, back to the office, and then home. If you are looking for benefits then this opportunity isn't for you. If you are looking for a decent living then this opportunity isn't for you. If you are looking for job security then this opportunity definitely isn't for you, since they interview 100+ people a week. This means that to them you are easily replaceable, even though out of that 100 people maybe .1% of them will last 3 months. Also if you are above the age range of 20-28 they probably won't offer you the job, and the same goes for people who already have families. In conclusion if you receive a notice for there interest in you for their "Management in Training Program" i would strongly suggest you ignore and continue looking for better.

door to door sale, low pay, long hours, no benefits, no job security, no off time
