    I worked at Job News

    Pros

    Had a good group in our small office.

    Cons

    Pay was at best OK for the responsibility. Objectives were set and unattainable for all so they never had to payout bonuses. Difficult to keep sales help because pay was so low.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    spend sometime in the filed meeting with your customers. Never once did I meet the owner of company and it's a small company

    Revamp your office and hire professionals so we can better meet client needs and wants.

    Terrible workplace. Treated like a child rather than a professional with experience & education. Poor work-life balance.

    Pros

    Great clients! Good product, needed product, but methodology of call center selling is mundane, limited, and outdated.

    Cons

    Deemed as outside sales, but sales managers are not given autonomy and respect to manage their own time or do the job in the best possible ways. Really just a call-center and clients despise call centers. Unproductive method of selling.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat outside sales managers with respect, foster the client/sales rep relationship and relationship building with community leaders and business will absolutely grow. Treat your sales managers like children, do not foster the idea of client relations outside of cold-calls, manage their time, rather than allowing them autonomy to do the job successfully, and all you have is a call center with extremely minimal results.

    Former Employee - General Manager in Nashville, TN

    I worked at Job News full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Good Hours, lots of time off, great people in most offices. Management is always willing to help.
    Competitive pay structure, Job Fairs are a great incentive to staff to make money and contacts.

    Cons

    Intercompany politics and poorly defined territories. Advertising in print is a dying industry, the company could and should focus on more high tech solutions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create a test work from home environment forthe employees. Too much money is spent on offices.
