    Pros

    The people were friendly and a pleasure to work with. It was fun to work with vendors on a daily basis and work along side the Product Manager

    Cons

    The town of Warren, PA was extremely remote with a lack of options for things to do on the weekends

    Advice to Management

    The only negative would be the location so if Blair could relocate their headquarters, the company would thrive!

    I worked at Blair Corporation (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Easy work, comfortable environment, great incentives, some managers are great, easy to get promotions, great pay for the area.

    Cons

    Very repetitive, the quality of employee is horrible, people complain constantly, low pay in terms of median salaries, some managers are horrible. No benefits unless you're full time, which is basically being a unicorn.

    Advice to Management

    Management really needs to take some advice from their representatives to heart. Need to make the process more flexible.

    "Researcher"

    Pros

    The best reason is that in these days and times you have a job. As they say " It's a job" It's about making a dollar, Trying to Surviving day to day.

    Cons

    Well, From what I could see, If you have ever worked for Teletron , a call center for selling people things, like credit cards, and so on. It's like that. If you make people angry enough they hang up on you, or say nasty things on the phone to you for calling them. From what I know this place is similar, comes close to that. The pay not good, can't live off.

    Advice to Management

    Considering what you go through, with clients on the phone, when you have a hard time talking to people for what ever the reason, They might not want to talk to you maybe. they need to treat their workers better, and pay them more.

    If you want the hours, you definitely get them. Even before I was full time I almost always got 40 hours

    I had kidney problems so I was constantly having to use the bathroom, because of that, that was partly the reason I got fired

    Advice to Management

    Be more understanding of you employees

    Rules and regulations only apply to certain employees and not other's

    I have been working at Blair Corporation part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I enjoy working at Blair because it is different everyday.

    Cons

    Some of the challenges are their incentive program, because I feel that commission for certain programs is unnecessary.
