    I worked at Cennox full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Easy money. Decent pay. No supervision.

    Cons

    They mess up pay. Travel a lot more than originally told. Stopped paying “admin pay” (pay for time spent scheduling and any other work from home) after a couple weeks

    I have been working at Cennox full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    You are told they are flexible. They are anything but

    Cons

    Manage by bullying. Low wages. Favortism

    Advice to Management

    Treating employees with respect goes a long ways. Some can work at home? Others can’t yet have the same title. Favortism is huge.

    I worked at Cennox full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The hour lunch breaks and some schedule flexibility. But that probably will not last long.

    Cons

    Toxic work environment and management, micromanaging from management, poor training, high school mentality from female staff, very very low pay, and a heavy work load. There is nothing good to say about this company.

    Advice to Management

    Stop writing "positive" reviews lying about how great of a place this is to work. You are the reason the turn-over ratio is so high and why people walk out on the job. Stop gossiping about your employees and pitting them against each other. Your high school clique antics are shameful and hopefully soon you will see that employees you try to dictate see through your act. There is no place for advancement and you care... more about filling your diversity quotas than filling those positions with people who can actually do their jobs. Cut the act and get a management team who can handle the responsibility and professionalism of managing a company correctly.

    I have been working at Cennox full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Make your own schedule. People are nice to work with but management turnover is high.

    Cons

    You are basically a contractor although you're an employee. There is no PTO or sick time. If you don't work, you don't get paid. You will be asked to send emails and such but you're not paid one cent for any of that. You must be in the field testing to get paid. You use your own vehicle and get paid maileage.

    Advice to Management

    Offer your employees PTO and a salary.

    Pros

    could be good if they were actually orgnanized

    Cons

    total joke, no communication, no organization, nothing

    Advice to Management

    Get a clue, you work on bank alarms at bank of america among other, have someone with experience train the new people and create a training manual neither of which you have now.

    Pros

    The only good thing about this job where the hours.

    Cons

    First off the training there is horrible. They have people who don't know how to teach train new comers. Then when you have a question they look at it as a weakness. Second they don't inform of anything, in stead keep you in the dark and shun you. Third the department managers are absolutely oblivious to their employs and what their needs are to become more proficient, not to mention don't have a clue on how to do... most of the tasks that the employs do. And finally there is no such thing as TEAM work. Everything is done separately, and if you ask someone else's opinion on a project you get treated unfairly.

    Advice to Management

    You need to put those in management positions that can lead from the front, and teach employs how to do the task. Make it a united team, instead of putting everything on one person. And for those who are going to train new employees, make sure they can teach. Send them to a course so they can train new employees properly. Also become more diversified by hiring those who are not family or friends, all this does is... make the work stagnant, and intimidates new employees.
