    Former Employee - Customer Service/Inside Sales in Hauppauge, NY

    I worked at Positive Promotions full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Some of the staff ( the ones being abused) are great people! They unfortunately are stuck at this miserable poorly managed company due to the bad economy.

    Cons

    If I could rate this company a minus 5 stars I would. Where to begin- management is a bunch of lying thieves. They look for unintelligent brown-noses to promote to supervisor positions. These people couldn't survive in a real company. The Customer Service and Sales Department is a joke. In CS they treat the reps like garbage screaming at them even while customers are on the phone. The Sales Dept has deceiving individuals always trying to take earned commissions away. These people truly have issues! The management promises the world but are compulsive liars! This company cuts corners to fatten their wallets at the employees expense.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do everyone a favor and fire yourself!!!

    Former Employee - Customer Service/Inside Sales in New York, NY

    I worked at Positive Promotions as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    none for PP, but the customers were super nice

    Cons

    Where do I begin? Dinosaur equipment that was a nightmare to navigate. The "unprofessional" management that think yelling while you are on the phone with customers is ok. In training we were told not to type too hard or the customer can hear that. Don't you think they can also hear a so called manager behind you yelling to go available. OMG the mistakes everywhere, that constantly had to be fixed. Dirty and dusty with no windows and looks like it hasn't seen a mop or broom in years. The culture that encourages abrasive and rude people, that are accepted and praised rather than reprimanded for creating a hostile environment. Finally, what the company promotes and sells is NOT how they treat their employees. example: We sell posters about Respecting Others, Bullying, and how words hurt. But that is not applied at all by management and they discourage anyone trying to change the status quo.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management be sent to training on dealing with obstructive and disruptive employee effectively. Lock them in a room and have them write 100 times" I will treat others as I would like to be treated." " I will not be a bully" and finally " I will treat my employees with the same amount of dignity, compassion, and respect that are given to our customers."

    I worked at Positive Promotions full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    There are none. I cannot think of one positive thing to say about this company. Stay away at all costs.

    Cons

    This is the most disfunctional organization imaginable. It is completely void of any leadership. If the alternative to working here is unemployment, choose unemplyment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sell the business.

    Pros

    Having a job is the only good reason why I stay.

    Cons

    Bad place to stay in corporate area. No work-life balance, Lots of empty promises given by CEO. They love getting work for free...very big on working weekends. Pizza is all you get. Scream on your way out the door!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Where do I start?...Disorganize, projects run amok, absolutely no work ethics. Say no to the owner/CEO, you're out the door.

    I worked at Positive Promotions

    Pros

    The company provided a great work life balance. You are able to enjoy the work you do and spend quality time with family.

    Cons

    As a small business, it lacked the consistency to fuel the financial obligations for the position. The work was good when it was there, just inconsistent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to push the envelope to create opportunities for longer and larger contracts. Enhance the brand recognition in the industry.
