    Pros

    It offered a base pay of 30k a year plus a commission plan to make money.

    Cons

    55+ hour work weeks. Such long hours make it hard to have a work life balance. High pressure sales. Hard targets to reach to actually make commission.

    Pros

    Growing company with great opportunities to advance. Great benefits including health coverage, education reimbursement, profit sharing, 401k with company match, every 5 years a vacation bonus, employee and guest free holiday party, this year paid every employee a 200 bonus because company did well, management very approachable, great company enthusiasm and energy, fair compensation, wonderful employees and the best parent company in the world Berkshire Hathaway.

    Cons

    You work hard. This kind of growth (26% per year) doesn’t always come with additional employees hired in advance. Therefore we usually have too much work and to get it done timely you may come in early and stay late but in the end they hire and things calm down. It is a small price to pay for job security and long term career opportunity in Wilkes Barre.

    Pay was ok. Just not a good balance between work life and personal life.

    Pros

    The benefits are pretty good. The pay is decent depending on how long you have been there. Most holidays are paid.

    Cons

    There really is no work and personal balance. The hours are ridiculous. They expect one person to do multiple jobs regardless of how busy they are.

    It's a job... I guess. (Concierge)

    Mar 2, 2017 - Concierge in Asheville, NC
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    + Benefits when you first start. + 12+ Days of PTO. + Pick your schedule. + Paid Training. + Co-workers seem alright.

    Cons

    - They don't tell you what you'll be doing, till you start training. You don't really get a choice either. Don't want to be doing concierge? Too bad. - Mandatory over time (Extra money is nice for some though) - They say you'll be training for 3 weeks, but its really only 2 weeks. You sit in a class watching power points and using 'offline' based programs (so most of the features don't even work) to learn how to do your job. After the 2 weeks, they throw you onto the floor for 'nesting'. They say a supervisor is around to help, but other people need help too. Not ready to take live calls? Too bad. - Very stressful. You'd think a job based on 'Google searching' would be easy, but it's surprising pretty stressful, when you have someone yelling at you trying to find the nearest Starbucks in some big city you've never been to. - Low pay for what you'll actually be doing. As others have said, they expect gold but give you little help. - Their programs are slow and crash a lot. They use virtual computers, yet expect you to give someone turn by turn directions on google maps... Takes a little bit to even load google maps at times. - Communication is lacking severely. They said 3 weeks of training (its really 2) during the day. Normal hours of 8:00-4:30. After 2 weeks, you change hours with only a few days notice to 1:00-9:30 PM, then your schedule you picked. We weren't even told about 'nesting' (going live after 2 weeks) till our soon to be supervisor asked if we knew about it, then looked shocked when we said no. Overall? I'd avoid this place.

    Pros

    This is a fabulous company to work for! The tools for training and success are unending. The managing broker is so kind and will go out of his way to make sure you have all of your questions answered and you are set up for success.

    Cons

    The only con is the career path itself. Being a commission only employee can be frustrating at times because your pay is so inconsistent.
