    I worked at Auction.com part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Fantastic group of people with excellent benefits IF you can afford to pay a company to work for them. From beginning to end I applaud Ten-X / Auction.com for their willingness to support, train and welcome me. I also LOVED the endless amount of my interaction between the courthouse personnel, customers (investors/homeowners etc) and seemingly endless amount of people approaching
     me for my company information. I LOVE working and LOVE people so in many aspects, it felt like a win/win situation. It absolutely killed me to have to leave. If I'm hired to do something, I expect to get the pay promised... not chase after it only to see that it's substantially less than half!

    Cons

    I was hired as an Auction Coordinator / Trustee Auction Manager. It is a part time position, that when I was assigned an Auction, I was guaranteed a good wage for a min. of 4 hours (they say even if I worked 3). The problem was the unpaid portion driving my pay to substantially below less than half. More often than not I would accumulate 1-2+ hours of drive time to/from an auction. My gas bill was through the roof! So with zero mileage reimbursement, wear tear on my car or car depreciation consideration, state tax, my fairly "great pay, part time job" was actually full time hours at pretty darn close, if not right at or below, minimum wage. Note: they justify this by stating at times you don't work a full 4 hours so it 'works itself out' however I never found myself working anything less than 4 hours. Reality is you drive 2-3 hours UNPAID, spend 20-30 minutes walking to/from parking lots and waiting to go through courthouse security UNPAID, work 4 hours paid, drive to fed-ex then go home and spend another hour prepping files/printing docs for the next day. In closing: My time became more valuable than minimum wage and below when I was 16! I will say that if I wanted to pay a company to work for them, Ten-X / Auction.com would absolutely be the one!

    Advice to Management

    You have an EXCELLENT group of employees in North Carolina (many of which are the first if not only face to face or other point of consumer contact) who work incredibly hard and who are dedicated to the success of your company - pay them a fair wage!! Even and especially the ones on salary! It is incredibly disturbing to see them working endless hours due to what I would consider the inability to keep my position staffed due to pay issues. Your company preaches a work/home life balance but all I see for these employees is low pay working around the clock and ZERO time for their families. That's by far not ok... it's incredibly sick to see what they sacrifice for you.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Auction.com (Irvine, CA).

    Interview

    (1) Apply online (2) recruiter follows up and does the usual phone screen and interviews are scheduled (3) went through 3 rounds of interviews one-on-one. The interviews went great, very easy was more of a back and forth conversation rather than question and answer. The only problems I had with the recruiter. The recruiter could not follow up on a timely manner, the lack of action to move the process along was frustrating. Very passive in my opinion and in my experience.
