    I worked at Atlas Communications full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    There is a great mix of teamwork and independence with this company. They manage to bring the whole office together in a great friendly way. The meetings are always organized to be fun for the employees but extremely informational as well. I had a personal coach Mike who has been with the company for several years and is completely dedicated to what they do. It was refreshing and fun to be working with someone who is so in love with what he does. Mike was working with me day and night and he was a great resource for me. He was always available to answer questions I had and it was obvious he wanted me to become the best I could be. What I loved most about the company is they never let me lose sight of what my real goal was. I have a degree in geology and moved away from home to pursue a career in the field. I made this clear to them when they hired me and it was never a problem; in fact they honed my personal skills in a direction that helped me get my dream job. If you are looking to grow as an individual, I highly suggest you working with this organization. Personally, I had a short stay with the company; the only reason I left is because I got hired as a hydrogeologist faster than I anticipated. In cy stay, they taught me skills I will carry with me throughout my entire life. I used techniques they taught me in my interviews and I honestly believe this is why i got hired. You can be as smart as the day is long , but if you cannot talk talk to or relate with people you will always struggle in the work force. The owners and managers sent me off with a big congratulations. They helped me get where I wanted to be and I honestly felt like there was a mutual sense of gratitude we have for one another.

    Cons

    You have to work hard to be successful in this company. If you can introduce me to a company that you don't have to work hard for to be successful in, I will quit my job right now and come work for you.

    Advice to Management

    Keep taking everyone out for wings and beer every week, that never sucks.

    Pros

    None to state! Absolutely none. I can't explain how horrible this company is.. Stay away do not even go to a interview.

    Cons

    Are you looking for a job where you have to walk door to door selling AT&T Internet to customers who do not expect you to show up at their doorstep? If so, this job is for you! If you want to make barely any money that's solely commission based and walk approximately 5 miles a day this job again is for you! If you want to challenge customers to switch from their current provider and get yelled at by 4/5 customers again this job is for you!!!!! If you want to drive all around random cities with no gas compensation yayyyy you found your job. If you want to be working for a company where everyone believes in this satanic pyramid scheme this will be a lovely fit, you first go into a interview where they ask you about your challenges/goals/experience/weaknesses/strengths. They talk their company up and provide little detail other than its customer service / sales based. They call you for a second interview where you show up to just jump in some random employees car & drive approximately 1 hour away to go door to door in upscale neighborhoods to leach on customers to use AT&T for Internet tv and phone service. You will get yelled at by customers, you will feel embarrassed standing by the sales person as they introduce you by name to these poor customers, and you will want to run to the current Bart station. I would never ever work this job unless I had no other option. You go to decent homes & show up banging on doors until you get a answer & question customers until they switch to AT&T. If you do not make a sale you don't get paid. It's that simple. Do not expect to get reimbursed for you second interview either, you sign a waiver upon arrival. If you want to walk 5 miles a day in a neighborhood you know nothing about in the dark go right a head! If you want to disrespect people in their own homes go ahead and take this horrible job opportunity. You will achieve a higher sales experience at your local McDonalds along side with a small order of morals.

    Atlas communications is a complete scam.
    Beware : unless you are one for scamming innocent people.

    Advice to Management

    Be upfront about your company and what the job entitles, stop being shady. Realize that 9/10 people have a brain and will never work for a company so scandalous.

    Pros

    Fantastic advancement opportunities, great financial possibilities, and people who love to work hard and play harder. A truly strong powerhouse office full of professional people who dress and act the part every day.

    Cons

    People are only limited by how hard they want to work. What one puts in, one gets out. It's that simple.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work and maintain the fun, stimulating environment we all love at Atlas. "Only the best!"

    Pros

    There's no limit to the amount of money you can make and there is room for growth. Also you get paid every week.

    Cons

    Horrible hours, walking door to door, having to deal with very negative people both in the office and at the doors, and it is purely commission based so if you don't make any sales in a day it is a complete loss.

    Advice to Management

    Compensate gas money, don't have people drive out over an hour away every day, don't require unpaid office time every day, and be more professional.
