    I have been working at Pacific Office Automation full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    POA has a very strong and supportive culture. The training you receive from everyone from the President on down is so helpful and inspiring. Everyone wants you to succeed, and that mentality fosters an environment where teamwork is valued. I took this job a few years out of college, and POA empowers you to be your own boss, there is no problem that you can't solve. I wanted to challenge myself and grow and this opportunity has helped me in so many different aspects of my life from learning how to sell, giving me an opportunity to earn more money than I ever thought possible, and by being a provider for my family. I have never seen an environment where the CEO is willing to teach, train, and coach brand new employees, and genuinely cares about there goals both personally and professionally. This is a growth based company, they want you to succeed and help grow the customer base and the brand. They give you the keys and let you be the driver, where you end up depends on how much work you put in, how invested you are, and how involved you are with your team.

    There are sales incentive trips that you are able to go in if you qualify. Those are a lot of fun and let me see parts of the country I have never seen before.

    The compensation is incredible, the health care coverage is amazing, and the 401k match is unbeatable.

    Cons

    You get out what you put in, to this career. There is a lot of work to do and the more time you put in, in the beginning the more you will get out of this. If you are not willing to invest in your career, this might not be the best fit for you.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the momentum! Keep looking at ways to add new products and services to sell.

    Copier Technician Interview

    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Pacific Office Automation in May 2016.

    Interview

    Ive been trying to get a job here twice now and it seems they have rediculous high standards. First time they just gave me a phone interview and then they never retured my calls. Second time i had a phone as well as 2 live interviews and again they never returned my calls. It would a great place to utilize my skills since i have 4 years in repair and customer service. I called in twice a week for a month to see if i got the job and i get ignored. I understand if you cant send a rejectio letter to everyone but not returning my calls after 3 interviews is straight up disrespectful. I would hae been fine if i got a call or email that i didt get the job so i could move on with life.
