    Pros

    Lots of room for promotions and moving up in the company. You are given a lot of responsibility and what you do with it is up to you.

    Cons

    not really any to name. Sometimes you must work long hours and it is not the most stress free job, but the pay is well worth it.

    I worked at Amway

    Pros

    Flexible, work from home, theoretically can reach the point of "residual income"

    Cons

    "Team" puts a lot of pressure on you, wanted me to give them all my contacts so they could "help" me reach out to them, only get paid for a small commission

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Company is cultish

    I worked at Amway full-time

    Pros

    Best reasons to work here, well there's a lot of them as long as you're not working customer service. Pay is pretty great, people are friendly, company store is awesome, there's a gym and access to leadership.

    Cons

    Working customer service there are several issues. Training has become very poor and no longer prepares new CSRs for the floor, Shift away from a focus on pleasing the customer and more towards a very strict metrics system and script that sounds completely silly and probably cost them an insane amount of money to have someone write for them. High turnover among Manpower staff (see : poor training). Most supervisors are great, mine was excellent, but be prepared for the awful ones to advance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Advice to management : I took a 40% cut in pay when I left. Consider very very carefully what that says about the culture in customer service.
