    I worked at Chuck Latham Associates part-time

    Pros

    Work flexibility. That's about it

    Cons

    HR Dept which only consists of 2, is one sided with their own employees who've concerns. Your rights are not protected by them comfortably no matter how long you've been with the company. They go through DMs like no other company I've known

    Advice to Management

    Get to know the employees who's working for you! There's no 'i' in team

    I have been working at Chuck Latham Associates (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I've worked for CLA for almost three years. It's a great part-time job and you make your own flexible schedule. My boss is great and understanding if you communicate with her in a timely manner. If you scheduled yourself to work and need the day off as long as you still have time in the month to complete the assignment you can change your days around. Management is not constantly observing you so as long as your doing your task you will not hear from management that often. Great for anyone needing extra cash, but in need of flexible scheduling.

    Cons

    It is part-time there are no full-time advancement opportunities. Since you are an independent worker it is hard to stay on task. Many people get fired thinking they can cheat the system. Just do what you are suppose to do. There are no benefits. They do check on your work periodically so make sure you speak with store managers and they know you and that you work for CLA. You will not get rich doing this job the pay is decent, but not many hours. There are a lot of online after store visit to fill out. You go to many different stores near you.

    I’m glad that you have been with us for more than 3 years, and it sounds like you are a good fit for the job. Since we do short tasks in pet stores across the country it does end up being few hours ... More

    I have been working at Chuck Latham Associates part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I love the flexibility of not working in an office. I enjoy being able to educate customers and management on new animal products. I love that I can always reach my training manager. She and my district manager are ready to solve any issues I may have. To me their work and responsiveness is priceless.

    Cons

    Mileage is below average compensation. Employees do not get regular raises. This should be in the company's handbook but is not.

    Advice to Management

    Communication and professionalism is important. Some of the tools to complete monthly tasks are not applicable or efficient.

    I have been working at Chuck Latham Associates part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Make your own hours.
    Fairly easy job.
    Pay is very good depending on experience.
    District managers are awesome and very helpful.
    This is a great job for someone who just wants a little extra money.

    Cons

    You don't really get reimbursed for gas because by the time they deduct 30 miles/day you're barely get enough back to cover the cost of gas. There are no employee discounts on any pet products. You work more than you get paid for. You have to finish jobs in a certain amount of time and you're only allowed an extra 15 minutes to submit a survey. You don't get paid for any phone calls you have to make, emails, paperwork, organization, etc.

    Advice to Management

    Management is great. They're very helpful and patient.

    This is probably one of the biggest perks of CLA. The flexibility that is provided by the company is one that will be very difficult to match at other companies. Unfortunately, since we are “the ... More

    Pros

    None, zero, zip, zilch, nada. Unless of course you want to see the owner spend any potential annual merit increases or bonuses on Wine, Golf, and Planes. What a joke!

    Cons

    If you like a frat boy management team, this is the place. They lie, make stuff up and a generally slimy! Just ask the vendor community. They have an old, outdated business model and the competition is eating them up.

    Advice to Management

    Don't act like you are a product and branding company. Henry and Clemmies is a joke. How many failures are needed for you to get it?? H&C just bleeds red ink.
