    Pros

    Good products and services to sell which leads to the opportunity to make great commissions. Opportunity to grow or move around within the company. Decent benefits.

    Cons

    There's a ton of micro managing throughout the company with an overload of reporting that needs to be done. No loyalty or trustworthiness surrounding upper management and little corporate alignment between locations. Overall culture lacks clear mission and company goals. Very high turnover. No flexibility.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on fostering better relationships and creating a better environment for your employees and less on micro managing them.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at GateHouse Media (Austin, TX) in May 2015.

    Interview

    The initial interview went very well. They asked all the right questions and gave me an opportunity to ask all of mine. He described the extent of the position, offered hours, schedule, and insight as to how I would be working. He gave examples as to daily duties, work environment, and daily expectations. When asking questions, he covered my basic knowledge, various psychological questions, as well as asked my reasons behind relocating, reasons to why I wanted to work back in-house, and why I loved what I do so much. He was very personable, polite, and knew what he was looking for.
