    I have been working at Beltone full-time

    Pros

    Paid Time Off, Floating Holidays, Flexibility, great product, helping people hear better

    Cons

    Bad communication between corporate retail stores and home office. Little or no training. Low pay with no incentives for hourly employees.

    Advice to Management

    In the corporate retail stores, instead of working on commission, make them salary plus bonus ON their bottom line P&L. This will create more enthusiasm to create new business and easier to create accountability for their own performance regarding sales. The Patient Care Coordinator should get money for setting appointments. This would create a larger customer/patient base.

    "HCP"

    Former Employee - HCP
    Former Employee - HCP

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

    Pros

    Products are pretty advanced using the 2.4 G platform which makes these HIs streamable with virtually every BluTooth device

    Cons

    was promised office with plenty of testing potential, but upon examination the reality was very different
    as position is commission only test count is the soul determinate to income,,,I had 2 tests (only) my first month and was repeatedly told "things will get better",,,examining the schedule weeks ahead proved otherwise...my PCC made more than me my first month
    I proposed to management a minimal weekly salary with no commissions until the schedule proved to be sustainable and they declined,,,quite simply one cannot afford to work here
    Equipment was very old and no offices I attended had sound booths , therefore the test integrity is doubtful
    Office not updated since the 1970's
    I found another position and resigned after 1 month
    Quite simply management does not want to pay you and wouldn't if they could get away with it

    Advice to Management

    This is the 21st century....update the business model to reflect it....pay people a salary plus a smaller commission so they can live and invest in the future of the office
    Update the equipment,,,man the audiometers are from the 1970s...the office decor is just as bad

    Pros

    None, you will not receive any benefit from this company.

    Cons

    This is by far the most ridiculous company I have ever worked for. They are liars and manipulators and their bottom line is ripping off old people who can't hear. They hire you for the position that best suits your sex. Men are hired as sales persons and women are hired as patient care coordinators. They will lie about everything and fire you without notice. The owner of this company is quite possibly insane. Avoid this company at all cost. That includes the Winston-Salem office Asheville office and Mountain office that are Boone West Jefferson and Linville. Beware. No healthcare no benefits nothing just harassment is waiting for you at Beltone.

    Advice to Management

    Do a different profession you are terrible at management of people.

    I have been working at Beltone full-time

    Pros

    The history of the old Beltone was a strong company with a proud family bond.

    Cons

    Prior to the shift in management Beltone was a superior company to be employed. Currently the new president, a former gym and weight loss enthusiast, is swiftly making changes without any regard for employment history or the companies well being. The lack of industry knowledge or experience on her part is shining bright. The atmosphere is draining with a big brother type of approach. The physical work conditions are both cramped and chaotic. Recently the insurance rates have doubled and the vacation time has been slashed. There is complete disrespect for the employees.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees with respect, especially those that have been with the company for extended periods of time.

    Pros

    Convenient schedule. Low workload. Days are repetitive so it's a good option for those who like repetition. Also a quiet environment. You do need toe good with the elderly.

    Cons

    Not a good choice for those who need constant interaction with others. You have to spread your work out to stay busy throughout the day and be a self starter.

    Pros

    The customers are great. That's literally it.

    Cons

    Corporate doesn't care at all about the employees. The pay is terrible, you cannot live off these pay checks. Its all about meeting sales goals, not about helping the customer.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees like assets, because they are. And raise the pay, it's insulting.
