    Pros

    1.Culture - The company is very particular who they hire. The reasons: They need the employees to be a good fit for the main reason their services exist, HELPING LOCAL businesses thrive. They look for people who are passionate in this goal. They want their employees to build relationships within their peers, in their office and within the company.
    2. Compensation - You're offered a base pay (which is nice, especially in a sales role). You are also rewarded with commission. There's opportunity to increase your base pay while staying in the same role; all depending on your performance sales wise. You have a monthly commission, a quarterly commission and a yearly commission. (Great potential to make A LOT of money) Spiffs - Want a $100.00 gift card for doing your job? Constant opportunities to win extra rewards, trips, tvs, electronics, and money.
    3. Dress code - want to wear jeans and a tank top to work? Come on in! Or dress to impress, the choice is yours.
    4. Music - Do you enjoy working while listening to some jams? Pandora all day!

    Cons

    1. High turn over - Expected, you don't perform sales wise, then you won't be a good fit to maintain a long term employment.
    2. Not enough sales training. Coaching is provided, feedback, etc. However, sales training is not.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When hiring, offer a sales training that covers techniques for different scenarios. Strongly believe more people would be retained, if their was a training specific to actual selling and sales in general.

    Pros

    The people. Everyone in the CM role is suffering, but it's a lot easier to grin and bear it when everyone around you is down for drinks after work to forget about what you have to do the next day. You will make good friends; they hire high-caliber individuals with great attitudes.

    Cons

    Feel free to voice complaints or point out areas where things could be improved -- just don't expect anything to change for the better. Glittering generalities and cartoonishly optimistic "we hope so!"s are thrown around like underwear at a Justin Bieber concert. Additionally, the workload is such that you should expect to work most, if not every, weekend. It seems that they work people until they quit, and then hire the next round of UT grads.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I'm not sure if you asked higher-ups to write these positive reviews, but they are definitely not a reflection of the actual opinions and attitudes of those working for you. Here's to hoping this is all news to you.
