    I love this type of work, and my immediate supervisor is awesome, however the company itself is gotten too big to care.

    Pros

    I love being able to be super flexible with my scheduling, and the mileage and drive time reimbursements are decent compared to many other similar companies. My immediate supervisor does everything he can to get me as much or as little work as I want. If you are just looking for something to do part time this is the perfect job.

    Cons

    Some of the cons are that no one can get a raise, even if your supervisor thinks you should get one. They don't do any type of employee reviews. For having so many employees, many times projects are very chaotic and don't seem to put together as well as they could have been. The more flexible you are, meaning being able to be called Monday morning to go to another state 10 hours away if you leave immediately, the more opportunities are available. If you need a steady paycheck this isn't the company to work for.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice to management: Get out of the office more and see what actually happens in the store day to day, stop just relying on a computer programs. You really need to read all these reviews and take some action, if you want your employees to have any kind of dedication to this specific company, then you need to hear them. Communication between all levels of management and your employees desperately needs to improve. Employees just want to feel that the company does actual care and does try to listen to the ideas of those who are actually doing this work. When you have the majority of your employees having absolutely no real loyalty to your company they aren't able to give each project 100%. This company could be so much greater by taking just a few tips from those of us who feel you are viewing us as easily replaceable. Your training also leaves much to be desired, I have ran into at least 10 new employees just this year who had a million questions because I have been the first co worker they have met in the 3 months since they have been hired. The company has the potential, management just needs to find it, and you can find it in your employees!

    Pros

    The recruiter that I worked with was very helpful as questions came up about the position that I was applying for. the "On-Boarding" process was confusing at times - so many "hoops" to jump through, it felt like. But that just may be because of the "remote-hiring" situation. I never meet anyone in person before being hired. It was all over the internet and on the phone. The field personnel were great to work with when I finally got an assignment in a store. Every day is a new adventure, which for some could be a challenge, but others find that it keeps life interesting.

    Cons

    The benefit system is interesting to try to figure out. I have other health insurance, so I am not as concerned about it as someone who may not have any other health insurance.

    Pros

    Hours were very consistent. Got to leave an hour early every Friday as a benefit.

    Cons

    very little structure no one person knows what you are doing on a daily basis. Which leads to having too much thrown at you at once. If you can't multi task forget about getting anything done. Just a very disjointed position.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Add structure and make sure you truly understand the workload given to the role. Sometimes wearing too many hats just doesn't work.

    Raise your wages for those who work several years. It will help having to constantly look for replacements.

    Pros

    Good rate of pay for low amount of hours. Marketing experience in invaluable. Attention to detail is prevalent.

    Cons

    Inconsistent hours prevail. There is no set schedule therefore one day you may be scheduled and the next day you are not, or vice versa.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A better-kept schedule would help many of the present issues management has complained about.
