    Amazing place to work and grow in every way

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    At Coast, everyone gets hands on, 1 on 1 coaching from all of our leaders. Also, because of the advancement structure, everyone in the company started at the same place. This means nobody will get advice from someone who hasn't been in their position before. Personal and professional growth is the focus. While everyone works hard to achieve their goals, the competitiveness and mentorship environment pushes people to get better in a fun way.

    Cons

    This is a management training program, so consistently learning new skills can be a challenge and adversity is inevitable. However for people with big goals in life, learning to overcome challenges and bounce back from anything is an incredibly valuable skill. Of course, working hard is implied and some people might just be looking for a simple "job" instead of building a long-term career.

    such a mess

    Pros

    None don’t work here please

    Cons

    An unorganized mess from top to bottom. Working food service is more fulfilling then working here. Management is very condescending at the end of the day, they don’t care unless they hit their bottom line. They’ll bleed you dry until you have more or less nothing left. This is NOT a corporate job do not be fooled. False advertising left and right, like who meets with their CEO on a daily basis?! This is a glorified MLM they won’t say that though. They won’t even act like working 50 hours a week on JUST commission is anything less than “your job”. Don’t work here, I left a month and a half ago and now I have a REAL job.

    Pros

    Management training program that is merit-based allows you to take control of your own career path with no limit to compensation, great mentors, fun travel opportunities, amazing people to network and hang out with

    It is a lot of work and really forces you to take note of your skills that need improvement

    You get out what you put in.

    Pros

    There is a lot of mentorship and growth opportunity for people who put in the work. I have learned more in this position than I did in the entirety of University. Hands-on training in sales, leadership, public speaking, and more. I am valued as a team member and have fun with co-workers.

    Cons

    This is not a position you can just skim by in. You have to put in the work to really reap the benefits.

    Don't Waste Your Time

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Self managed, flexible, low risk

    Cons

    This was the biggest waste of time, it's not a marketing job it's door to door sales. There is no cross training, just don't do it if you don't want to do literal feet to the pavement door to door sales.

    The only good thing about the job was some of my coworkers. Otherwise, I would not be able to survive there.
