    Lots of different opportunities, variety in what you do, meeting lots of different people, developing interpersonal skills.

    changing policies and pay, managers at a distance so communication sometimes difficult. Clunky reporting for service orders.

    Pros

    Corporate is very laid back - dress code is flexible - jeans are perfectly fine unless we have corporate guests, then it's khaki's. Managers's can be amazing

    Cons

    Actionlink is a rollercoaster - and you have to be prepared for that! Tons of work one month, then nothing for a while. No regularly schedule reviews, unlesur manager makes it a priority.Paid well for job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Share with your people how Dealing With Ambiguity is a required skill. Continue to share updates on projects (Go Todd London!) and just keep the information coming!

    Pros

    Generally flexible hours, everything is pretty easy to learn and manage. Everything is easily accessible from your smartphone or tablet, so you can fill out your information on the go so less printing! Training was pretty straight-forward. HR is quick to respond to any issues. Paid time for driving between stores. Nice rep help line for all issues, and nice merch kit!

    Cons

    Lots of last minute calls and emails, 2-3 people calls are a HASSLE. Managers aren't always as accessible as they should be. Pay rate isn't as competitive as other merchandising companies. Lack of conference calls to explain new programs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do away with the 2-3 person calls.

    Pros

    Flexible schedule
    Awesome and helpful managers

    Cons

    Not enough working hour
    Cut paid
    This last one is not really a con but something to consider for new hire: everything need to self learn through videos and online trainings. Nobody gonna be around to teach you step by step

    Pros

    One of the best managers I've had, easily communicated with him, willing to go out of his way to help me grow.

    Cons

    Sometimes way too short of an hours offered per weekend and there are days we just dont work for a month or two. I dont mind 12-15 hours a week but 8 hour per week is just too short in my opinion.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I understand that there are down times for the projects but I just personally think 8 hours a week is a bit low for a part time.
