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

    Pros

    Overall, Credico has a great company culture. The company checks many of the standard boxes for work/life balance, company outings/happy hours etc. However, Credico really goes above and beyond. Management truly has an open-door policy and are receptive to feedback. They are constantly evaluating the benefits package and looking for ways to give employees exactly what they want and need. Managers are hands on with helping...

    Cons

    More opportunities for external training.

    Advice to Management

    I found the yearly performance review to be very beneficial and would like more feedback. Conducting performance reviews on a biannual or quarterly basis would be beneficial so we can receive more feedback and improve our skills.

    Pros

    There are Friendly people that’s it

    Cons

    Work more than 50 hours to get 200$ a week and sometime no money because your sales got canceled. They teach you how to talk to customers to make them buy your products but then they canceled and you got no money. They want you to learn all checklists and teach it to new people so that you got promoted higher but even if you own a company you still have to knock every door under the 100F weather . And you go through every...

    Advice to Management

    Quote the right position you want to hire and give them the base wages at least for every hours. I worked at Billion ways - a brand of Credico and I still used Credico as a company name when ever I talked to the call center .

    I worked at Credico full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The people you work with are generally cool.

    Cons

    Literally everything else. Pay is not guaranteed, it's all based only the commission from your sale and nothing else. I worked a number of days from 11-8:30 and made zero dollars. I quit when I realized I'd made less in a week than if I was putting in 40 hours at the McDonald's downstairs. Of course, this was seen as my fault for being a poor door to door salesman, and not the company's bad business practices. Also...

    Advice to Management

    Quit being scummy. Stop posting jobs under 8 different titles even though it is all for the same job. Stop posting jobs under multiple companies, even though they're all in the same office and are all the exact same thing. Stop preying on college kids who don't know any better.

    I worked at Credico full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I met some great people.

    Cons

    Everything, first they do not advertise the job correctly they put out 10 job postings at a time all with different titles; marketing manager, event manager, event assistant, customer service specialist. None of these are true every person is a direct marketing sales person. On average I would work about 80-90 hours a week some days from 8AM-10PM and some weeks where I did those hours I would only get paid $400 a week,...

    Just stop completely right now, I've seen a couple lawsuits online about this. A lot more trouble is going to come if this continues.

    You can be promoted if you make it through all of the BS

    Cons

    Demanding hours, they rely on high turn around rate and revolving door Multi level marketing and pyramid scheme

    Be like a normal company and don’t rely on cheap wages and revolving door

    I worked at Credico full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The work is easy. You only need to create reports, schedule meetings and monitor fraud amongst agents in the field.

    Cons

    You have to monitor a lot of fraud of agents in the field. As an account manager in the main offices of Chicago you are a glorified admin for the Nation Account Managers in the field. If you do find fraud, you are the one in trouble for not looking the other way. It is also a revolving door of management. Turnover was at 60% while I was there.

    Advice to Management

    I would give advice if I knew they would listen.

    Pros

    If you need friends than this job can provide you with that. Most coworkers are cool people & you spend a lot of time together at work, but also at after work social events.

    Cons

    Simply put it is a pyramid shaped scam. The goal is to make enough sales & train enough people in around a year time frame, so that you get promoted to owning an office. A few people out of the hundreds you might see over the year, might actually achieve this goal. At that point you will make decent money, because you get commission on multiple people selling. You as a solo sales person however won't make enough...

    This business model takes advantage of people & lies to them & teaches them to lie to other people. I will be reporting you and AT&T to the BBB, in the hopes that you will be shut down.

    Pros

    Everyone is super happy to work here, I’ll give them that. They care a lot about the atmosphere and family.

    Cons

    That being said, I work for one of the subsidiaries (Raven) and they lied to me repeatedly. I was told I was going to do graphic design (I’m not because the department doesn’t exist), I was going to get a base pay for each day (I don’t after the first two weeks, then it’s pure commission) and I was told that I was promised to be transferred to the graphic design department that doesn’t exist. I’m not the only one lied...

    Advice to Management

    Stop lying to your potential hires. Tell them upfront that whatever position they want (brand ambassador, graphic designer, event planner) doesn’t exist and that they’re now in sales. You’re going to lose so many good people if you lie to them and personally I am counting down the days until I leave.

    "Response to employer"

    StarStarStarStarStar
      Current Employee - Anonymous Employee 

      I have been working at Credico

      Pros

      I am addressing the response that credico made to my previous post. Do some research yourself about what the mission and values of this company are. Even the most basic search will expose them, and while some people may somehow enjoy the low level positions, many reviews as you will see are from decent people looking for work and recognize the system they have that is indeed an MLM.

      Cons

      The canned answer they provided only further convinces me of their apathy toward low level employees who don't want to grind on the street for hours for an impossible wage. Give me a break.

      Advice to Management

      They seem to think they have all the right stuff. So keep it up.

      Cons

      Sometimes, teams I am working with can be decentralized and very busy, which result in delayed responses and approvals that can prevent my team from completing the work timely.

      Advice to Management

      Top management should continue to make themselves available to the team and lay out clear requirement for projects. Continue to bring in diverse group of individuals from different background and culture to build teams with a verity of strength and ideas.
