    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.

    Pros

    There is a lot of support for interns, and tthe projects for interns in all departments seem to be meaningful and important to the company's real goals and needs. Mentors provide resources, training, and any other necessary tools for success.

    Great office environment, very friendly coworkers.

    More transparency and conversations about potential full-time hiring, throughout the internship and even as early as interviewing for the internship.
