    I have been working at City Business Solutions (IL) full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Working with City Business Solutions allows you to have a stable career with the freedom of structuring your days to meet your personal needs. There is a network of coworkers to call on anytime you need or just want to however there is also the option to be self-sufficient. It is a nice balance for anyone that doesn't want the typical 9-5.

    Cons

    The company is serious about growth and require 100%. This is not just a job for collecting a paycheck at the end of the week.

    Advice to Management

    Management works very hard putting in many hours, but they should take more vacations so the staff has more opportunities to slack off.

    Pros

    Conveniently located is about the only good thing I could say it's easily accessible by public transportation

    Cons

    Working on campaigns no actual salary so unless you are well connected it could be awhile before you see any $$

    Pros

    Awesome office atmosphere that I enjoyed working in everyday! Unfortunately for personal reasons I had to resign, if not I would be glad to still be apart of this team.

    Cons

    Being in the HR Department I had days where I encountered unpleasant people to speak with on the phone, which is never fun.

    I have been working at City Business Solutions (IL) full-time

    Pros

    Everyone is young, ambitious and hard working. I can have the CEO position within one year, all promotions come from within the company. Awesome team environment, with major opportunity to build my own business.

    Cons

    Wish we did more traveling internationally.

    Advice to Management

    Don't stop. Don't give up. Friend of mine has been in the business 7 months and has been promoted to management is about to open his own business. The business waits for no one.

    I have been working at City Business Solutions (IL) full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    People seemed nice and professional from first glance.

    Cons

    it is door to door sales and is commission based compensation. The work hours are from 11-8pm. They are very general and evasive when you ask what the job entails. It is not until you have wasted an ample amount of time until you realize that you are knocking on unsuspecting people's doors to push a product.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest when recruiting: tell the people who are coming to interview that this is a door to door sales job
