One on one training is a must.

    Pros

    The people I worked with were wonderful and helpful. The clients and the people I met and helped were very nice and friendly.

    Cons

    I was in two offices and one was one and half hours away from my house. The company changed marketing strategies and there was too much time in the office that was unpaid time. Management came in too late to offer help.

    Advice to Management

    Less time in the office and more time in the field to help clients meet their needs.

    Pros

    There are no "pros" when they can't follow thru as promised to a potential employee

    Cons

    can't follow thru as promised to a potential employee

    Advice to Management

    When someone emails you and sets a time to call and talk to you about the opportunities, they should keep that appt....she (Janet Woods) found my info on career builder and emailed me...said she would call at 10 a.m. wed morning...nothing, not even an email. Makes me wonder...if you treat potential employees this way, then is what I am reading from current employees true? And what about customers? Sounds like you need some training in the hiring dept.
