About to quit this Boiler Room!

Sales (Current Employee)
Tustin, CA

I have been working at Local Lighthouse full-time for more than a year

Pros200 dollars per sale. After taxes $182

Consscheduled hours, but NO hourly pay. Constantly being threatened to be fired , Micro managing. no employee appreciation.No Support, Poor Training. Little to no Positive feedback. It is always the employee's fault even when everyone doesn't get a sale.

Advice to Senior ManagementTake a communication class. Learn How to be good leaders. Negative Reinforcement Sucks, Try positive reinforcement You will get Further. Stop Micro Managing. Get leaders that actually know what they are doing. Put into management people that know how to sell a product more than one way. Show appreciation for your employee's

Typical Boiler room. It is all about the grind and sales.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Tustin, CA

I have been working at Local Lighthouse full-time

ProsGreat Location. Paid weekly. Not a lot of Dailer or computer problems. The basic service provided are things business owners can get for themselves. But most do not know how to do it or the time.

ConsPitch is 100% emotional sale. No real value. They do make sure the listings are currently submitted, but after client accepts the website they are charged for everything per the agreement. They reuse data over and over and prospective clients are pissed. Watch out for snakes in the Shark tank. High turnover for sales as well as clients

Advice to Senior ManagementTake care of your employees, and your clients. A company that takes advantage of the employees will do the same for their clients and vise versa.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Local Lighthouse Gives SEO a Bad Name

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Local Lighthouse full-time for less than a year

Pros- Unlimited coffee and snacks
- Good salary for an entry level position
- Clean, comfortable offices, in good area of town
- Laid back atmosphere

Cons- Basically a boiler room scam, focused on signing up clients rather than retaining current clients
- Repetitive, low quality work to meet the bare minimum requirements of each contract so the client can't pursue legal action to get their money back
- The guilt that arises from taking money from small family businesses all over the country while providing almost no value in return
- High employee turnover rate as they are fired or leave for legitimate opportunities
- No benefits

Advice to Senior Management- Get a sustainable business model that isn't built on scamming small business owners who aren't internet savvy

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
