I have been working at Pop-A-Lock as a contractor

Pros

Flexible schedule, work from any location as long as you have a landline phone, internet, quiet surrounding

Cons

Turnover....this type of work is not for everyone.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep up the great work and thank you for caring about your employees...the only advice I would give is to consider offering workers who do a good job and are steady with their schedule an opportunity to work full time as non contract employees

    I worked at Pop-A-Lock as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    Make some extra cash while going to school.

    Cons

    Low pay, company looks for ways to get out of paying you for jobs performed. Example: went on a door opening at 3:30am, customer paid cash and the company refused to pay me for the job, citing the zip code was not filled in on the invoice...for a cash payment? I could understand a credit card or check payment needing this info, but not for cash. Also, they charge a $1200. training fee, prorated if you quit or are fired within the first year. My "training" consisted of less than an hour of opening doors in a local junk yard. Inexcusable, perhaps that is why the company folded in my area.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Owners: monitor your managers a little more closely.
