    I have been working at Barbizon full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible Schedule
    No Early Mornings
    If you do your job well you get BONUS $$$
    My Co-Workers Are Like FAMILY To Me
    All The FREE coffee you can drink lol!

    Cons

    As with any sales job you have to perform and keep your numbers up. Management does reviews with you telling you your strong and weak points. If you continue to perform poorly you will be put to part time or let go....Isn't that how all jobs work?!

    Advice to Management

    I think work from home privileges should be sooner than 18 months....If the employee is performing well reward them :) You can always bring them back after a month if their numbers dip.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Barbizon (Washington, DC) in September 2017.

    Interview

    Saw the ad on Craig's List and applied. A week later, received a phone call to set up a phone interview. After the phone interview, was invited to a teacher training in two weeks.

    The first day of the teacher training is unpaid. If you're asked to return the next day, it is paid. There was only a small group of us, and all of us were offered the position and invited to come in the next day.

    The trainer was very professional and excellent. She was very helpful and seemed to genuinely want us to succeed. The trainer was the same person who did the phone interview.

    The training/interview was fantastic. It was actually a bit hard in some areas, but that's not a bad thing. At least it prepared us for what to expect in the classroom. I thoroughly enjoyed the hiring and interview process. I will be writing a review on the job at the right time.
