    Pros

    Will was really easy to work for, and extremely courteous. I had not had any experience in this field and he really helped me overcome my nervousness and learn the ropes.

    Cons

    None! It was a great experience!

  2. I had called company for office work. When I went in to "the interview" they said they only do Factory work.

    Pros

    there are no "pros" I can see for this company.

    Cons

    Lies about wages and jobs to get you in and offer you lower paying position.

    Advice to Management

    When you tell someone over the phone you can do something. Do it, don't allow the "recruiting staff" to lie to potential applicants.

    Pros

    If you are willing to dig you can learn a lot on your own. The people are very intelligent and are willing to help if you ask them. No micro managing here either. You get to meet many people from all avenues of life. When you are able to put someone to work is when you realize the gratification of what you do.

    Cons

    Working completely alone. Very little actual training is given. For the most part the work is not very engaging. You have to learn what to ask by yourself. Very hard to make it through the day.
