    I have been working at Allied Van Lines

    Pros

    When the housing market was good, I was making over six figures and working less than 35 hours a week. That was in 1999, but now with the market so slow, you have to work twice as hard, and you are not making much. Currently at $65k, and I don't know if they will keep me.

    As a COD rep. you work out of your home, and make your own hours. If you are successful, it can really be a GREAT JOB!!

    Cons

    The housing market is killing the moving industry. If someone loses $100k on the sale of their home, they will be looking to make up that money somewhere else, so they move themselves, or go with these shady budget movers. Its tougher now than ever.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't sit back and wait. Know what your Sales force is doing. Lots of us are screwing around, waiting for things to get better!

    Pros

    Small company but international in scope, almost everyone spoke English, good leadership.

    Cons

    Limited growth potential unless one of very few top managers left company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Might be a good idea to offer more incentives to increase number of clients and new business to firm such as residuals.
