    I have been working at Allegra Network full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The Allegra located in Old Town Scottsdale is very different from other franchises from the services we offer to our branding. We are not a quick printer and we value people over all. Our culture is truly unique.

    Cons

    Being confused with an allergy medication.

    I worked at Allegra Network full-time

    Pros

    Nicely decorated , furnished, plenty of parking

    Cons

    Don't be fooled, hostile culture,micromanagement. If your family or part of their
    good boy club you'll do ok. Hard work and loyalty means nothing. Partners makes decisions without getting all the facts from ALL parties involved.

    Advice to Management

    Take a good long look at your Management style and stop being so demoralizing

    I worked at Allegra Network full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Plenty of parking and the hours of operation.

    Cons

    Too much family involved with operation with no real leader. Promises of the money to be made 100k plus with limited operurtunity to make any real money position caps out at 45K. Work tickets are wrote up with conflicting information. Management makes mistakes and blames on staff. This is the poorly managed company that survives on the reputation the parents built.

    Advice to Management

    Bring outside sources to evaluate the whole company and have defined roles and goals that you share with teams members. Stop all the finger pointing and look in the mirror.


  4. "Dependent on Franchise Owner"

    I worked at Allegra Network part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Small company, only worked with a couple other people. One of our bigger customers was an amusement park in the town, so we got tickets to go there for a work meeting with other b2b companies. Work day was pretty steady, busier during the beginning of the week and quiter near the end. Dead on holidays.

    Cons

    i was treated kind of unfairly, didn't learn how to use the cutting machine or do a lot of production work. I was mainly there for designing, answering calls and ringing up customers. I was asked to quote people and had no idea what to quote. I was working hourly, so during dead times and holidays, I would be able to get in a full week of work.

    Advice to Management

    My manager in the town I worked at was so awful. I still talk to the coworker to this day and nothing has changed. The manager reads the newspaper and comes in late. He doesn't know graphic design and can barely operate the printers correctly. He leaves everything to the 1 person that works there.

    Customer contact is imperative to sales success.
