    Pros

    Many of the people there were very nice.

    Cons

    If you weren't part of the "family" clic, you were on the outside. There were two teams there, the family and everyone else. The measures of authority versus responsibility were way out of kilter. You were responsible for many specific metrics within your department but when the rubber meets the road, you had little authority to enact changes, policy or protocols to reach those goals.

    Advice to Management

    Base pay is too low when bonuses are usually unreachable. Making 1 bonus out of 4 is not considered a good percentage. A bonus is based on a real reach, a stretch, it is not meant to be a once in a decade event. Break up the family & friends clic and treat all people equally. You can be easy on employees or you can be hard, just be consistent.

  3. Good company to work for. Be ready to hit the ground running.

    Pros

    I work in the regional office in sales. I love the people I work with. They are supportive and you feel like you're a part of a family. Every day is a joy to be here. I love meeting new clients and sharing with them the benefits of our services. Almost every business needs commercial cleaning services, so you have a great amount of prospects to speak with. I strongly believe in the company's values, and how they give back to the community. They give 10% of their profits to charitable organizations that I really believe in.

    Cons

    You must meet and exceed your sales goals during the first 90 days. The company is very strict about that. You need to be ready to hit the ground running...immediately.
    There have been times when you wonder if a franchise owner will even accept the new business you bring them once you close a good sale.

    Advice to Management

    Give new sales employees more of an opportunity to ramp up their numbers (beyond 90 days). You could miss a long-term, profitable employee if you cut him off before he gets a chance to really put good numbers on the books. Also, there have been times when you wonder if a franchise owner will even accept the new business you bring them once you close a good sale.

    Pros

    Good work environment. Always something to clean or franchise owners to deal with. I would recommend you to take a look.

    Cons

    Hours are hard. If you're in ops then you're on call 24/7.. You have to stay on your feet. Fast paced.

    Pros

    Being your own boss..........kinda....the experience teaches you what not to do. You do, however, receive some compensation. Easy to join if you have the money.

    Cons

    Everything they tell you is a lie! They sell you a dream to get you to put up your money. They are not not helpful to the franchise owners. Training is minimal. Not organized. Very costly!

    Advice to Management

    Put yourself in these people who are buying these franchises. They are slaving to satisfy these accounts and making very little money, while you all get rich! Stop lying to these people! Your robbing them blind! They may not be able to do anything about it, but trust, the Lord will!!!!!

    Pros

    Company Car. Gas Card. That's it.

    Cons

    You'll get a few leads each week, but most likely, none of them will close because their pricing is higher than the competition. When there is a good lead, even in your assigned territory, your manager will most likely take the lead and you will get $0.

    Advice to Management

    Consider easing up on the micro management. Allow your sales reps access to the computer system from their own home rather than reporting to the office every day. Share the good leads...don't be so greedy.
