    Highly administrative work, so selling time can be limited depending on how you manage your time. Company hasn't yet made significant headway on investing in itself and upgrading image.

    Pros

    Everyone is very helpful. They are willing to help new people learn. Health, Vision and Dental Benefits are available. This is a good place to learn how to work in the Graphic Design Industry.

    Cons

    Trying to keep up with work in timely manner. Everything is on schedule as there are several different deadlines for Ads to be printed. Some of the Reps are always late turning in their orders. The majority of the ad is built using Multi-Ad Creator.

    They have no one in management or sales reps. who care about the customers success. All that matters is weekly revenue.

    Pros

    They have no issues with reps selling services to customers who will never have any postive beneit or it. If you are some one who has no problem taking money from customers and know they will never get any return on their advertising dollar then it is perfect place to work.

    Cons

    Total dishonesty to the customers and at all levels in every ofice. The most stressful act is everyone at Penny Saver knows and no one cares. Look out for yourself and trust no one. Co=workers opening steal, cheat,and lie to each other and all their customers. Management knows even at the highest level but no one cares.Just weekly revenue and say nothing or loose your job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Wakeup and make a business plan that starts by having a work place that rewards teamwork, honesty, and hardwork. Why would customers ever trust and build long lasting relationships with a company that has coworkers stealing or each other and management knows and does nothing. The only time any one just in trouble is i they speak out about the lies and complete lack of services be provide in the information that customers are promised.You can sale and give the customer nothing and as long as the customer does not say anything reps are instructed not to ever bring it up. If you do that is the only time a workers gets in trouble. If any customer has paid for internet ( or digital services) I can promise you 100% o the time only 15% off your service was ever completed. It is a waste of money to pay for websites, listings, and most of all SEM. Theycollect your money and never do anything after that to make your service successful. They did not even do any SEO on websites until 6 months ago and never have let any customers know they were paying for a ull service website that was worthless.

    Pros

    Its an average paying job and they don't fire you easily.

    Cons

    The customers you deal with are scum. They want to cheat you constantly. The paper business is dead. The brand doesn't is not appealing with successful businesses so you hear a lot if belittling "PennyyyySaver???" Most of the management is gone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be creative with the book. It looks slim, pale and unappealing.
