I have been working at HotChalk full-time for more than a year

Pros

The benefits were standard at Hotchalk. The salary was a little above average. The atmosphere was war and fun. I believe in earnest that the company cares.

Cons

There was no training and no help if you were struggling. Constantly asked how they can help you although the they did nothing to help. ADOA's were too busy with busy work and not willing to develop their specialists. It is expected that you work 6 days a week, and don't expect to take a vacation, management frowns upon it.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

If you want to succeed, develop your enrollment specialists, and don't be so quick to make your company a revolving door of employees.

    Pros

    Ok benefits, ok pay, other than that, not much went well.

    Cons

    Management had no idea what they were doing. Instead of learning about the business they were trying to break into, they hired a number of people, used their knowledge and then found flimsy excuses to fire them. They changed their business model almost weekly with no prior notice. Systems and SOP were put into place, and then employee feedback was completely discounted when proven not to work. Senior management had no idea how to run the business or how to treat employees with respect. Lied about future compensation, promotions and found weak excuses to let people go without any kind of performance evaluation. Little to no communication.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Instead of blaming employees for lack of understanding, realize it's lack of support and training that results in failure. Take responsibility for your own incompetence and treat your employees as though they are valuable to the company instead of drones that can be replaced at any given time.

    I worked at HotChalk

    Pros

    Benefits were great. Pay was decent.

    Cons

    CEO has ZERO business running a company. They change business models every few months. Employees had no voice in any decisions despite being connected with customer base. Senior management has ZERO experience leading a start up company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire a management team that has experience outside of marketing. Management should be accountable for failures instead of blaming employees. Find a business model and stick to it.
