International Program Consultant (Former Employee) – Richmond, VA – November 14, 2017
There is a drink room full of cold cans of beverages and an instant coffee machine as well as ice machine for associates to use. That was the best part of the job was getting to drink stuff all day unlimited amounts.
The worst part of the job was calling schools all day only to have them either not even pick up the phone, hang up on you, or transfer you to a dead end voicemail box. The occasional teacher who wants to retaliate against another teacher or simply is interested in traveling will want to travel and suddenly they make 30-40K for one tour. The effort to find that one teacher is limited by the hundreds of schools they send as "leads" and you are expected to hunt and find that one teacher without any support. Many of the schools I was assigned did not even pick up the phone and asked me not to call. The new ones I was given did the same exact thing. The stress level means constant turn over and the people you get to know one month are gone the next month. It's funny too because now there is a special room for the alternative lifestyle associates who earn a lot to sit in. Quite funny actually.
poor training, poor management, poor leads, disorganized and back-stabbing
