    Pros

    Great position if you just want to make some money for sitting around and making phone calls all day.

    Cons

    Worked here back in 2014 and couldn't believe the level of disrespect shown towards employees. No appreciation whatsoever. The first few months are great but then you quickly realize the poor values held by upper management. Everyone's just trying to earn a buck end get out. No real passion for the industry and the only thing ever spoken about is ROI. Management talks poorly about previous employees as well as some existing employees in different departments.

    Advice to Management

    Change your business plan entirely if you ever hope to keep anyone around.

    Pros

    There are a couple of very nice people working for this company that makes the job somewhat bearable. If you're looking for a really easy job, this is for you.

    Cons

    The job itself is very easy but very boring, you make phone calls and answer phone calls from 8 AM - 4 PM everyday. If you don't mind that, then this job is perfect for you. Management says some very unprofessional things about their customers, their own manufacturing employees and past employees. Very poor training in an industry where a base knowledge of seating and positioning is essential to be successful and competent in the industry. Training is not consistent from employee to employee; employees contradict each other. Management does not follow through on the training schedule set up for employees. There is a huge emphasis on the quantity of phone calls but not the quality of phone calls made. If you are applying to this company be sure to ask about how you will be compensated and know their policy on sick and vacation days in your first year of employment.

    Advice to Management

    Better communication with your employees is essential. A much better, real comprehensive training program is needed to build up a company of competent employees. You focus far too much on the quantity of phone calls made and not nearly enough on the quality of phone calls made. Don't talk bad about your customers and your own manufacturing employees, they're the ones keeping you in business.
