    I worked at Altavista Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The Corporate Trainers were fine

    Cons

    It’s an overly uncompetitive job with a unrealistic pay scale. Lies, over saturation, you name it. This job is not for anyone who recently graduated from college with a degree.

It's a scam Seriously, if you're struggling for money, don't take this job. You're literally better off working a minimum-wage job, you'll make more money there.

    Pros

    The work they do is genuine! The methods however...are questionable.

    Cons

    The job description does not reflect what you are actually expected to do. If you have a college degree-- you're overqualified for the job.

    I guess we had some miscommunication. We are not only looking for sales, we are looking for people to manage, train and oversee campaigns. However, you have to go through the management training program first.

    Thank you so much for your reviews and opinions, we are slightly confused because you said it's a dirty office. We have a daily cleaning service, however, we will take that into consideration to improve our image. As for scam jobs, there must be a huge miscommunication, since we represent well-known fortune 500 companies. We take our client's representation and compensation seriously. If you have any questions please feel free to contact us.
