    I have been working at Compact Management Group full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Compact management group has been the best experience so far for my life and for my future. Every single day i come into work im surrounded with extreme positivity that I've never been able to find anywhere else. The owner Andrew Chintow is by far the most personable and respectable person you could ever have as a mentor. He handles every situation with individual care and fits his mentorship to the person he is working...

    Cons

    Honestly there aren't many negatives about the company, unless you don't like being surrounded with positive people every day that point out aspects of your life that could be improved.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing, the systems work and amazing relationships are built here

    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Compact Management Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The ability to learn useful marketing techniques and people skil.ls on a day to day basis. I was able to see a tremendous amount of personal growth in myself. I learned how to improve my critical thinking skills due to the dynamic nature of the job and how to relate with any demographic.

    Cons

    A definite learning curve exists, I had to understand that nothing would come easy like some of my other jobs. If you're not prepared to work hard everyday the job may seem difficult.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to address problems quickly as they arise, and try to pin point the areas where each individual can improve on a daily basis. Also set some long term goals so everybody understands the growth potential.

    I worked at Compact Management Group full-time

    Pros

    During my time here I grew as an individual and as a business professional. You have to put effort into the position to get rewarded and to get the growth you are looking for. This job allowed me to gain the the necessary skills to boost my confidence and gain the career I was always looking for.

    Cons

    This position and company is not a place you can simply clock in and out of. In order to be successful you must put forth genuine effort everyday.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to motivate people it helps during the tough times and shows you what can happen when you truly believe in yourself.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee 

    I worked at Compact Management Group full-time

    Pros

    Loved the people, most of the leaders/managers, and owner(s). Learned valuable life skills and techniques for success that can be applicable at any job.

    Cons

    Truly one of those "Marketing" company's that advertises job openings for titles that are nonexistent. It is a sales based job, no matter where you start.

    Advice to Management

    Personally, I really liked the management team when I worked there. They were always positive and motivational. However, I do think that the job requirements of employees need to be somehow adjusted to allow even some sort of work/life balance.

    Pros

    Nothing that I can put into words. It's a part of life I want to forget. Waste of everyone's time, energy, and interview time.

    Cons

    They mass market for themselves to rope a dope people. Reality, they get the crumbs of big biz and want to pay you crumbs from Those crumbs. Get out!

    Advice to Management

    I worked at Compact Management Group full-time

    Pros

    Full time work is hard to come by in this day and age. Potentially could make you more then min wage if you pester enough people.

    Cons

    Feels like a pyramid scheme. Long hours, no time to do anything for yourself. You run around stores bugging people all day every day. "marketing"

    Advice to Management

    Please be more up front with what the real job has you doing. Specifics of what you'll be doing day to day. Not so much, "you could be a owner making loads of money one day."

    Former Employee - Marketing Director in San Diego, CA

    I worked at Compact Management Group full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I learned a lot about myself and the company. I learned new marketing strategies and learned more of how to get into a higher position. Anthony taught me a lot of things and felt automatically welcomed by Will and the others. I have gotten more confidence and more job recommendations after working for just a day and half.

    Cons

    Your getting paid off commission and 9 dollars an hour. I went to around walking Home Depot in Eastlake trying to convince customers to get a Home Depot designer to come to there place to see some samples. Which was difficult if you don't know how to be very convincing.

    Advice to Management

    Great company but need to figure out other tactics in marketing and extend a bit more time on those that didn't make sales right away.

    I have been working at Compact Management Group

    Pros

    There's team night some Thursday nights...

    Cons

    This is the worst place to work. You are hustling makeup. . The owner is never in the office, broken promises to numerous promises and has the attitude of a 3 year old throwing a tantrum in Toys "R" Us. You work from 8am to 9-10 pm full time with no break. You go door to door and in to random business trying to hustle makeup. I'm in my early 20's and was sold on something completely different than I signed up for and...

    Learn a few good things about marketing. Law of Averages, etc.

    Stop paying for good reviews. Stop using people as slaves to make you money.

    I worked at Compact Management Group full-time

    Pros

    I worked with Compact and I am forever grateful with what I learned there. I had little experience in marketing and sales but knew that I wanted to be in a position to grow within a company and acquire all the skill sets to run my own business one day. I was able to travel to their quarterly conferences and learn from the best of the best who had been around all different amounts of time. I have made some incredible life...

    Cons

    This may not be the place for everyone - in fact, it's not. It is not for the weak minded and lazy. Unfortunately, those types of people are everywhere looking for the negatives in life and free handouts.

    Advice to Management

    I think if there were some local conferences more frequently for everyone to be able to attend that would be a great opportunity
