      I worked at Coast full-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      My first position out of college is not at all what I would’ve expected. They say you’ll learn a lot about yourself through school, which is true. However, the amount of real life experience and how much I got to know about myself and grow professionally and personally in the year and a half I was working at Coast is truly not replicable if I had chosen to work anywhere else. The coaching from the managers, Taylor and...

      Cons

      The position is hard work and could be very challenging for someone who isn’t ready to commit to a career based role.

      Advice to Management

      Keep being awesome, and authentic leaders you are to the people who put 100% into the business.

        I have been working at Coast full-time for more than a year

        Pros

        Working at Coast so far has been a new experience for me. Previously, I worked at a company where I was just another number, another employee, just someone who was there to work. I was not appreciated by any means. Here at Coast, it has been a whirlwind of learning. I feel that in the 6 months of being employed here, I have really developed skills that have helped me in my professional career as well as my personal life....

        Cons

        There are not really any cons to the position. Many reviews on here sadly are exaggerated. I read the same reviews coming to my interview, and here I am currently happily employed. This is a company where you will have to work hard. If you are someone who works hard and has a great attitude, you'll find yourself really taking advantage of the opportunity here and would not see working hard has a con. However, if you're...

        Advice to Management

        Pros

        This company pours their heart and soul into its people. There is such a great focus on goals and creating new opportunities for people to grow.

        Cons

        They work really hard. It makes sense based on how quickly people move up, most are not used to really working this hard.

        Advice to Management

        Keep promoting from within. This philosophy is so great. I have seen what outside hires into management can do to negatively impact morale.

        Cons

        A challenge getting around places

        Advice to Management

        This job is great for learning work lessons that are related to working with others and independent work ethic. I would suggest that for newcomers, be sure to talk to newcomers 1 on 1 right before they head to a new territory. Heading out to a new territory all by yourself is a big challenge to take on and it is important to ask the new employee if there any problems or worries just to show there is understanding between...
