    I have been working at Empire Today full-time

    Pros

    Atmosphere (people I work with), benefits and compensation, advancement opportunities, management is superb, training is limited, but I didn't need a lot of it, work-life balance (option of working from home one day a week), company perks

    Cons

    PTO is a bit low, but it increases with experience/years with company, which is understandable; distance - but will be moving soon, so the commute will change and that is really it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have never met the CEO or CFO of the company; however, the Director of Media - Jeff Fosdick knows and lives Media. He is friendly and cheerful and provides a great atmosphere for the media team. He demands a high level of professionalism and hard work in the department and if we're not measuring up to his expectations/needs then he will tell us. He always has his door open and even though I may have a biased opinion, he is one of the best managers I have EVER had. The Chief Officer of Marketing - Keith Weinburger, I have only been introduced to and as far as Keith is concerned from the short time I spoke to him, he seemed like a very respectful, intelligent individual who is a great asset to the Empire Today team. I absolutely LOVE Empire Today, LLC!!

    Independent Sales Contractor Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Empire Today in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    What a joke! Why did I ask questions only to be lied to? Was told my daily preferred hours of 9-5 was completely acceptable,that I could set my own hours was fine. Furthest thing from the truth. Evening and Saturday hours are mandatory which I can not work.
    Then I had to take a ridiculous "personality" test that absolutely no one could fail to get the job. Was told to report to work on Monday, ultimately giving someone no time to get their life together. What if you were leaving another job, so therefore you could not give proper notice?

    Negotiation Details
    There wasn't a negotiation since this is strictly commission-based.
