    I have been working at Kingland part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Sounds really good on a resume! And the people are really fun to work with. The hours are flexible and

    Cons

    The base pay is pretty atrocious.... But, its a super entry level position, so that's understandable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Nothing really, you all are doing a good job! I'll stay for a while longer!

    I worked at Kingland as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    You get to pick your own hours. I worked with a great group of people that were always willing to help out. Relaxed atmosphere - I was able to listen to my ipod while working.

    Cons

    Boring job - you practically sit on the computer the whole time sifting through SEC and other documents. They make you work at least 18 hours a week which can be tough for some students. Decent pay.

    Not Pleasant

    I have been working at Kingland as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Set your own hours, but there is a 18 hour per week minimum

    Cons

    There is almost no human interaction, you just sit at a computer all day doing boring work. I don't feel like I have gained any skills whatsoever either

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Less than 18 hours per week minimum

    I worked at Kingland as an intern (more than an year)

    Pros

    Extremely flexible schedule. I mean, if you miss work, just text your manager. No questions asked.

    Cons

    Boring work. If you aren't in your manager's "buddy circle" you won't get promoted. Was promised promotion within the month - it took 6 months and a big blowup between me, my coworkers, and managers. Don't trust anything they say about the future until it happens.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop making empty promises. If you're going to promote, actually promote. If someone is looking to advance, let them. Trust your employees! Also, if you're going to create a new position or change something with the organization, actually have the intentions of doing that. I am sick of hearing about a change and never seeing it happen.

    HR is very nice. If they decide to hire, they will give the offer on the spot.

    Salary is too low. It can only be a part-time job. No valuable tech skills can be learned. Not so much interaction with other co-workers.
