    I have been working at CARCHEX full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I was told on my interview that if I squeeze I will get juice, I found this to be true.
    Management is great, I had very limited sales experience and they taught and tutored me to be successful.
    There is a great camaraderie among the employees, everybody wants everyone to do well.
    The CEO is a man of integrity and genuinely cares about the wellbeing of his employees and customers.
    There is a gym on site, and 3 days a week you can participate in the wellness program led by a great instructor.

    Since working here I have gained skills that help me in both work and personal life, I have become more fit, and made good friends.

    Cons

    Its a sales job, Its easy to become discouraged if your having a bad week. Remember its a numbers game, just keep swinging and you WILL hit somthing

    Advice to Management

    The bean bags for the cornhole game are missing

    Pros

    There is no cold calling. People research the most reputable companies and we are at the top of the list in almost every case. The management knows what they are doing and if you listen to them and learn from them you can experience success very early on. This is my first year with the company and I will make around 70k. It’s a fun place to work and you will get out of it what you put into it. Very happy here

    Cons

    Like any sales job, some people you speak to can be abrasive but overall these are all warm leads and the people you talk to are interested in what you are selling.

    Advice to Management

    More free lunches :D

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

    Pros

    Pay
    Decent hours
    Majority coworkers were nice

    Cons

    Harassment is NOT OKAY! I wasn’t going to make a review but being that the coworker who was harassing me my entire time being at Carchex and management did nothing but give the coworker numerous “Talks” is unacceptable ! I tried staying seeing if what management said would help but it only got worst and I felt VERY uncomfortable! And decided to quit! On the sales side it’s majority males and a handful of females being that this is not the first incident dealing with HARASSMENT shows a red flag but what makes my situation “different “ the coworker was bringing in money for the company so I guess they feel as though he’s a reliable asset ! Which is sick! And something needs to be done other than giving a coworker “talks after talks” oh and it’s more than 1 female coworker who had a problem with the same male coworker all in the same month !? And nothing was done but a talk!?

    Advice to Management

    You should think more about the safety of your employees rather than being more concerned about money!

    We could not agree more that any harassment in the workplace is not okay. However, to say that management did nothing or only gave an employee numerous talks is simply not true. In any case of... More

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

    Pros

    Really nice people
    Eager to help
    Excellent reputation
    This job is perfect for a college student.

    Cons

    Expensive product hard to overcome price objections

    Pay. Pay process is overly complicated for no reason. Was paid only 1000 for my first month of working with working standard 40 hour work week. Could have been paid more working for McDonald’s.

    Schedule. I was told that I would be working 9-6 four days a week with one late day. After training my shift changed to 10-7 three days a week and 12-9 for 2 days a week. When I brought it to their attention I was told it was because I was new. Unacceptable.

    Advice to Management

    Be more forthcoming in the interview when talking about hours and pay. Also you should pay more per sale. A smarter way to pay employees during training would be to give them a set amount.

    I have been working at CARCHEX full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Very good income potential with no caps. Leads are plentiful and mostly consist of people that are in the market for a Vehicle Protection plan. We have all the tools and resources available at our fingertips to assist in giving the best presentation to potential customers. It also helps to work in a stress free environment without someone constantly looking over your shoulder. Rarely will you find a sales job where everyone , for the most part, is willing to help each other be successful. I feel this company will have substantial growth over the next year or so.

    Cons

    As in any sales job, some days will be not as good as others.
