Pros

Variety in duties and great co-workers makes it a fun company to work for.

Cons

Not enough hours available. They hire too may people so that everyone get 12 hours a week. Not acceptable.

Advice to Management

Give the dependable and hard working employees more hours and let the lazy ones go.

    Pros

    Dynamic corporate team from assistants to VPs to the C-level execs. It's amazing to see a group of established and brilliant people be so willing to put their egos aside and all work to solve problems together.

    Cons

    Not for everyone. Success is dependent on having passion for your role, being willing to speak up and share ideas, and enjoying close relationships with your team and cross functional groups.

    Pros

    Commission.
    You get paid to sell "warranties" on select items. Selling more gets you more money. In a perfect world that should merit more hours, but sadly it doesn't!

    PTO
    You receive a small portion of time off on each paycheck depending on the hours you work. The more hours you work the more PTO time you receive each check.

    Cons

    Few Hours for part time workers (8-15 at most)
    Upper management sucks
    Unrealistic expectations!!

     If you're looking for a part time job (maybe 2-3 days a week) with commission then this may be the job for you. If you're trying to make a living, look elsewhere!!

    Advice to Management

    Management seems to be living in a fantasy world thinking people can survive off 10 hours a week!! They slash hours and continue to hire more people??!! Instead of rewarding employees who sell membership programs and extended service plans, they slash their hours..its nonsense to say the least. We don't need a team of 20 people all getting 10 hours working only 2 days a week; and then expected to produce at the level of an employee who gets 40. Unrealistic expectations.
