    I have been working at Life Alert full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    You can come in when you want. Work from home as well as office..call as many people as you wasnt. taxes are not taken out!

    Cons

    Not health benefits...poor pay structure... If a memeber dies before 90 days or there is billing errors they deduct it out your check...Like the pay was a loan...It takes about a month to see your sell(money) from today... its not consistent...

    I have been working at Life Alert as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Independant contractor with flexability in attendance and hours, excellant training, nice people who are helpful when you are new, we are selling a product to people who have a real need, the results of our efforts really save peoples lives.

    Cons

    This is a sales floor boiler room where we sit in close cubacles all day long make several hundred telephone calls a week. This office is very outdated and dirty...filthy kitchen. Crawling and flying bugs near the sink. Refrigerator doesn't work for months and is moldy. Manager will not spend money to get a new one even 30 people use the kitchen. Air vents are black with filth. Since most of us work in here days evenings weekends, look closely when you come in to interview. No efforts are made to clean this place up. Several people interview together.
    EXCESIVE FAVORITISM by the manager on giving out leads. The best incoming leads go straight to his favorites not the best producers. The most call-in’s also go to his favorites. This is universally known. His few favorites know it and stay quiet about it all the rest know it too because pay checks are severly affected. I’ve been told that many of the top-producing people have left because of this even the person who sells the most expensive deals who had been here for years just recently quit. When the people you look up to the most resign its an eye-opener.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Doubt that the owner of the company in California knows whats going on with the favoritism of leads in the Tampa Bay office. Many of the legends around here have left and it sounds like more are on the way out sorry but it’s discouraging to those of us who are left.
