      Pros

      Nice start up job pays $13/hr. Small company wverybody knows everybody. Easy commute. Consistent pay. (every other friday) easy to request for time offs. Very laid back no hard selling. No scripted spiels

      Cons

      Stagnant. No pay increase no matter how long you stay with them. Its a joke that you have to do billing and sales ans customer svc all at the same time and they base your stats on sales. businesss reps are always at the top bec they have same goals as you do in residential customers ofcourse they get a lot more sales bec business customers will usually order like 3 phone lines per call.
