    I worked at Connelly (CA) for less than a year

    Pros

    Management is patient and very helpful. They were very flexible with my school schedule. I enjoyed my 200 hours here. I would recommend it for anyone that is looking to learn about the human resources department.

    Cons

    It was just an internship.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing.

    I worked at Connelly (CA) full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Maybe the working skills obtained from doing sales jobs. Nothing else.

    Cons

    The company has been shut down because the manager has committed a tax fraud. Just think about the money he stole from us.

    Pros

    I would recommend working with Connelly if you're a recent grad, looking for growth, or anyone simply looking to expand their skill set. I enjoy working with a team of motivated people who genuinely care for everyone's success. I love that ist' non-seniority based and I have been privileged to travel for company events in the 1 year that I have been here! The culture is amazing! Everyone is really motivated and high energy....

    Cons

    Working here is not for someone looking to clock in/ clock out. You have to work hard to grow and develop.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to be unique, creative, nurturing, and demanding. As this combination of variables equates to phenomenal productivity. Also, open up more locations!

    I have been working at Connelly (CA) full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The best thing about the company is the compassion that the boss has in comparison to most jobs in Corporate America

    Cons

    Not a real "Con" but you have to work hard everyday, there is not enough time for you to take off.

    Advice to Management

    I believe some of the negative comments on Glassdoor don't warrant a response, but I have some things to say. If you are a current employee and do not believe in our client, your customers will cancel! The best thing for you to do is not to bad mouth the biggest name in telecom, but move on to something that you actually believe in. The interview reviews are most likely true, at Connelly INC we believe in empowering...

    I worked at Connelly (CA)

    Pros

    Connelly knows how to boost moral, they're exceptionally fantastic at it and it's probably what they do best. There's team nights and occasional business trips (paid completely out of pocket) and at the end of every day, there is a chanting ritual where we applaud each other for doing well enough to get paid that day.

    Cons

    The moral boosting is to fool their employees into staying. This company is based on nothing but lies. My boss here completely made up this "hardworking American Dream" story as something inspirational for the new hires. He said he was a manager at a bank making six figures and chose to pursue to be a career at Cydcor, Connelly's parent marketing company (GOOGLE THE HORROR STORIES). If you've even been at the company...

    Advice to Management

    Don't lie to your people. We slave hours with hardly any compensation, there's no benefits (They will tell you there is), no gas reimbursement, no feelings of success. I used to have positive feelings towards Connelly but after realizing how many business's I made miserable by signing them up with AT&T, I started to question why I was here. My advice to management is to change how this place is run. I probably would have...

    I have been working at Connelly (CA) for less than a year

    Pros

    There are no pros to working here because this is not a real company. It is a 100% commission based door-to-door sales job.

    Cons

    Connelly Inc. is a multi-level Marketing Company. Basically that means that it's a door-to-door sales job that is 100% Commission based. No insurance,no gas allowance, even though you're expected to drive all over San Diego, selling AT&T services that people don't need or want.. They lie about basically everything. They promise a quick promotion and a path to management but all that path really leads to is working an...

    I worked at Connelly (CA) full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Nice people. Literally that is the only pro of this company. That's sad. Absolutely no other pros unfortunately...

    Cons

    Worst training for anybody ever. Worst organization ever. Seriously not a professional company at all to work with especially if you are looking for long term work. Work shouldn't make you upset to have to come to that job every day and none of no trainer knows a single thing of what you even did so the training is all over the place, off and I never learned anything. They sit in their office while you go and work your...

    Advice to Management

    Please organize yourself and quit trying to be "unique" and "do something fresh". It's annoying and no one wants to hear the same thing over and over again, that is most of the problem is the lacklust and cookiecutter, let's do the same thing attitude while keeping people motivated. A real job isn't torture and has real structure. Where the boss listens to you and understands what's going on. I talked to the boss about...

    I worked at Connelly (CA) full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Fun people, positive atmosphere, potential opportunity to run your own branch in a year or two if you're willing to meet all of their criteria.

    Cons

    Expect to make about $100/day on average if you're good. You'll have days when you work your tail of for $ There are no benefits whatsoever. Some of the high performing employees still hold second job just to make ends meet.

    Advice to Management

    Be more generous with the compensation. People need to make a decent living for their hard work.

    Best thing about working at Connelly is the atmosphere, everybody is so friendly! First job I enjoyed waking up to go into work in the morning.

    Cons

    Challenges come with every job. If you're not willing to put in some hard work and learn new skills, then you're in for a tough going.

    Cons

    People that face the biggest challenge are the ones who are either lazy or lack motivation. If all you want is another 9-5 desk job pushing papers then this probably isn't for you. However, if you enjoy interacting with new people everyday and have real goals for yourself then this is the perfect opportunity for you.
