    I have been working at DePere Concepts full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I've been with this company for well over a year and in my time here I've grown as a person and as a professional. The tools taught and used here are basic needs in todays socioty howeveer many people overlook them. The management team cares deeply about their employees. I've worked corporate America and I know how mean and cut throat it can be. This is a far cry from it. This is what you make.of it. It's a management training program that uses direct face to face sales a s both a teaching tool and a vehicle to achive both a personal and professional outcome.

    Cons

    None that I can think of

    I worked at DePere Concepts full-time

    Pros

    People have good energy and those who stay don't seem to hate their job

    Cons

    I worked there for 2 days after learning for the first time on my first day that it is a door to door sales position. Upon quitting, despite paperwork I signed, they did not pay me, as they were supposed to, for the days of training I did, which involved hours of walking in mid-July heat, knocking on doors. Never answer the phone or return phone calls. Would never ever recommend

    Advice to Management

    Be honest and straightforward with potential employees (and everyone) and follow through on your word.

    I worked at DePere Concepts full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    You just may learn enough from this company to utilize it somewhere where you'll actually profit from it. The people there are very friendly.

    Cons

    A lot of time wasted no real management positions available to someone coming in with that experience already. No base pay. Focused more on sales than marketing.

    Advice to Management

    Be more honest when you ask people to come in for interviews and you will likely get the team you are looking for. Stop wasting peoples valuable time and money by allowing them to come and sit down with you knowing that the job they are looking for is not what you plan to offer.

    "One of the Worst Companies In The Area"

    Pros

    Only pro I got was a workout trying to find the place.

    Cons

    Office was VERY difficult to find. Took half an hour to find the place. Is not an actual job at all. Just a sales job peddling cable to customers at Wal-Mart.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure your hiring managers are more professional. Went on second-round interview and was never offered lunch, which I thought was really rude.

    I have been working at DePere Concepts full-time

    Pros

    The hiring team is good at acting professional so they are able to suck in a lot of desperate college grads.

    Cons

    - Door to door sales
    - Employees are disposable because people constantly quit
    - Base pay is equivalent to $5.66 / hour
    - They will lie right to your face about hiring and earning potential

    Advice to Management

    They don't tell you that it's door to door sales until the second interview. They are a complete joke.
