I have been working at Arrow Financial Services full-time (More than 5 years)
nice environment friendly people who are willing to train those who wish to succeed. this is a good job and i would recommend anyone who wishes to further their career in this industry to apply
cubicle desk work. can make for long days. plus the employees are not very motivated and are allowed to slack off if they want wish can lead to poor morale internally
Advice to Management
need to bring forth a sense of unity. would be nice to have company get togethers. I hope management can provide a better sense of family oriented atmosphere
I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Arrow Financial Services (Chicago, IL).
Well my interview process was great. A very good friend of mine was Director of Operations. This was 1998.total employees were about 50 at the time. Now I was still nervous because at the time it was my 1st real job in the city. My other jobs before that was for relatives of mine who owned Video Stores around the Chicago area. So the interview went as follows. He asked if I was nervous and he was very confident that I would succeed there because again he was friend and he knew me more then I knew myself at the time. ( I mean as far as how well I can do in that industry) Now he explained to what the job duties were and the hours, benefits, paid time off, etc. He also told me what the company has planned in the future and that he was going to grow and learn all he could during his time there ( The company ended up being a Top Fortune 500 Company & Eventually was bought out for over 400 million by Sallie Mae & my friend the interviewer owns his own collection agency in Illinois. Anyways next He introduced me to my Manger to be at the time and had my chair picked out for me. That was it. Oh and I've been married since 2005. I met my wife in the training program there. We both started Feb 15th 1998.
Like I said it was great. I knew what I was getting in too and I really knew I could benefit from the commission structure there. I truly believe until this day. If a company has a great Commission structure it will succeed.
