    Pros

    Very High Pay for Easy Work

    Cons

    High goals they want 4 hours of talk time and everyone hangs up on you haha yeah whatever all other goals are fine its just a lot of info to learn in a month then they want you to be a pro because they monitor calls heavily and will ding you for anything

    lower talk time standard and maybe you will keep good employees who get 95 of their students packaged

    Pros

    Great work environment. Very fun place to work

    Cons

    There is a major standard to keep your numbers up and enroll and start a certain number of students per start date. If you don’t get sometimes impossible numbers, your position is at risk.

    Advice to Management

    Find better ways to measure employees competence
