    Pros

    Fun job with good hours. Bonuses were nice around holidays and the job was a great first selling experience. Made some good connections that helped with future employment.

    Cons

    Pay steadily decreased as competition became more aggressive. Management didn't listen and became more concerned with padding their own pockets.

    None

    Pros

    Very customer focused and family oriented. Always felt like making the customer happy was the driving force behind themail company

    Too small to really compete with the major players in the industry, instead of competing should find niche market and focus there.
