    Pros

    If you like NASCAR , you will enjoy free tix. for races in town.

    Cons

    Poor management , very low pay with lots of stress. Not enough hours, they sent you home quiet often . Courtesy call would be nice, but they make you get to work , so you can turn around and go home.Very high goal , to earn commissions almost impossible .

    Pros

    >FT benefits are well laid out & easy to follow/enroll >Supply expenditures & expense reports rarely questioned >Accounts with vendors kept up-to-date so no delays in deliveries due to overdue account >Many trainings & employee services easily available through computer

    Cons

    >No work-life balance - will work you into the ground - long days, long weeks, long months without compensation >Inconsistent leadership - management structure & personnel always in flux so company's direction reflects a squirrel crossing a road >Decisions, promotions & inter-department relations heavily influenced on internal politics ...many people in positions they should not be in >Company has all the problems of a big corporation but is 20 years behind the times >Considers employees as disposable - squeezes every drop of work they can out of FT and PT staff members and then moves on to their "next man up". >Pay rates/raises appear to be arbitrary and randomly determined on a whim >No commissions & bonus plan is a joke - there is no monetary motivation to excel

    Advice to Management

    >Streamline management structure. Use pyramid chain-of-command structure. >Develop short, medium & long range goals and stick to them. >Develop a rewarding commission & bonus program. >Investigate why your employee retention is what it is. Develop a work-life balance program. >Watch OFFICE SPACE and send in the Bob's to evaluate everyone's job responsibilities & performance because you have a few people doing a lot of the work load and a lot of people coasting along

    Pros

    well its a job if nothing else is available

    Cons

    if you want a life this job is not for you. There is no work/Life balance. They expect you to devote all your time to this place. No advancement and unfair tactics used with employees being belittled and treated like a child. Management goes over the line with statements on your personal life.

    Advice to Management

    you need to wise up and realize that your workers are the backbone not the higher ups and friendships don't make a person qualified to do a job .

    Pros

    While I worked there, management was great and understanding, getting bonuses every month, and if your into NASCAR the free tickets.

    Cons

    my biggest challenge was the attendance policy because I relied on public transportation to get to and from work and I would arrive to work on time but would be late logging in because I have to run from the road down the long driveway to the office and then sign in to the computer and phones.

    Advice to Management

    I dont feel attendance should be based off what time you log into the computer and the phones. And you should also be flexible when people rely on the city bus that only runs on the hour

    Pros

    Health insurance and 401k if you can afford to contribute on what they pay

    Cons

    This was a good place to work many years ago but due to growth they have lost all of their values and have become a cold and uncaring employer only interested in profits and perks and bonuses for upper management at the cost of their lower level employees. Not enough compensation for the work load and responsibilities they demand. No matter how well or how long you have served they will terminate you per someone's whim in a heartbeat. Unequal and sometimes unfair practice of their policies. They market family entertainment yet could care less about their own employee's families. You will only succeed if you are good at office politics; not necessarily on how well you perform.

    Advice to Management

    Remember how you got to be where you are today, don't forget about those who have contributed to your success. Stop "restructuring"; new faces won't make a difference if you treat the new faces the same way you treated the old faces, you are just creating instability and distrust among the remaining staff.

    Pros

    Work in Sports! Team atmosphere, Big Events and Big Exposure. Great Partners!

    Cons

    Very Thick Glass Celling, Hard to move up, horrible budgets for merit increase. Sr. Management that doesn't value employees.

    Advice to Management

    Know what your people bring to the table, not only what they cost to pay.

    Pros

    Free Tickets - occasional Travel. Got to learn a lot about NASCAR. The team leaders and the trainer care a ton about the overall success of the company.

    Cons

    The management team is cold and uncaring when it comes to the employees. One manager in particular would hold mistakes against you until you got fired or quit. The pay was unacceptably low considering what they ask you to do.

    Advice to Management

    Spend more time at the call center to make sure your employees are treated with kindness not like children.

    Pros

    Free race tickets, free sodas and coffee, the job itself wasnt bad overall, it was awesome being able to say you worked for the track. My pay was ok although my co workers made considerably less than i did.

    Cons

    A lot of back stabbing, managers dont really care about their employees will sacrifice them in a heartbeat to make them look good. Overall VERY stressful work environment i wouldnt go back under any circumstances at this point.

    Advice to Management

    Promote from within instead of going outside the company you might find someone better suited to managing people and getting the job done.
