I worked at CORT Business Services full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

The product is great, it sells. The reputation of the company is superb in Denver. The Account Representative role is fun if you enjoy working with people. You will come in contact with up to 50 people per day so you must be willing and able to socialize, train and sell.

Cons

After a while the job can get repetative and boring.

    Pros

    The product offering is very enticing and allows you to present a true value proposition to your customers. Name recognition is high.

    Cons

    This is an operationally driven company. They know this and strive to hire self starters with a true entrepreneurial spirit to overcome. When these self starters achieve results they threaten the old guard and CORT calls this threat difficulty acclimating to culture. There is also NO onboarding process. You will be given a 15 day plan to watch 15 year old videos and work in the warehouse, but you will be lucky if your manager spends more than an hour with you. HR also does not understand the role of a CORT employee outside of the operations group. The end result is that the superstars that CORT recruits, at low $ typically, leave and the company is left with the average players that have floated under the radar for years

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have tremendous confidence in Jeff Pederson and his group, but there is a troubling and significant culture shift that occurs when you leave the Chantilly corporate office and enter the service centers. I can not help but believe that if Jeff and his Executive Management Team spent more time in the service centers then they too would see just how significant this disconnect is.
