Overwhelming process for a simplistic sales position

Never Given A Title (Former Employee)

ProsGreat family environment. Very relaxed so long as all job duties are completed on time.

ConsUncertainty with the schedule, they do not notify you if there are changes. The hiring/training process is similar to a boot-camp rather than being engaging and friendly.

Advice to Senior ManagementBe more selective about the employees hired. Too many employees request off too often.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
