    Pros

    will surely get on the job training on dealing with very angry, unreasonable, want 3 for the price of 1, type of customers. You get used to being yelled at for customer's mistakes, or understanding and why you are the one that is screwing them.

    You will learn to build a thick shell.

    Cons

    You will start to hate all people. 7am. - 6pm. (10.50 Hr.). Managers will always tell you to call someone else on immediate customer issues( customer in front of you), then that person tells you to call someone else and so on. 2% Commission if you make a certain #, which no one can let you see how the # is calculated. You will always be told that your job is on the line.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stick up for your employees. Threatening someones job only, does not motivate. Acknowledge employees when they do a good job.

    Pros

    3 Weeks Paid Vacation to start.
    Get out at 4:30 everyday (you don't have to put in extra time) You also get paid for lunch.
    Interesting business.

    Cons

    No room to advance. No communication with the Senior Executives at all except for the quarterly webcasts. CEO is a Ghost. His driver just hung around all day and waited for him to come down his private elevator. Also it's astonishing that they can lay off 4000 people to save 170 million dollars but they won't sell their Private Jet that cost the corporation $40 million a few years back and who knows how much in gas when the "big wigs" fly to Vegas for their meetings. It's kinda ridiculous that they can't fly commercial. Oh well laid off worked out for me. I'm now at a company that cares.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't put yourselves out there as being so elite that you can fly anywhere on a private jet and hide out all day in your executive suite. People like transparency not secrecy. I know that the rental market is tough but making your employees feel safe is a good thing. Going into work one day and being called into the office out of nowhere is not something that employees who aren't getting laid off like to see.
