    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.

    Pros

    Great training. Fun work environment. Great pay for those willing to put in the effort. You get paid and promoted based on your ability and not seniority.

    Cons

    Not for the weak minded. You must have a strong desire to succeed. Excellent opportunity if you have enough drive.

    Pros

    There is not much to be said here as the company does not offer any benefits or even care how their employees commute. It is strange that the company feels the need to lie about the job.

    Cons

    No benes, no knowledge of current lack of interest in telecommunications by consumers, lack of personality. They try to be google or apple but they are not. They are a pyramid scheme, plain and simple.

    Advice to Management

    You should stop lying to applicants. Many of these people do not want to do sales. It is a bad idea to try to get everyone to do your direct sales to people who can ill afford it. This should be illegal. You are making money off the backs of poor people and should feel totally ashamed. Learn about the current lack of interest in cable in the market.

    Pros

    Supervisors will help if needed
    Nice employees, will help you

    Cons

    Pay
    Act like their in Wolf of Wall Street

    Advice to Management

    If you want to work as a door to door salesman for a career, go ahead. Supervisors and some employees will help you if need it. But I only got paid literally $140 for three weeks of work. This is the only job I quit from and I was fine with it. Some employees there act like they want to be the next Jordan Belfort (the guy Leonardo Dicaprio played in the movie Wolf of Wall Street). From what I recall Belfort is a convicted felon that owes millions of dollars to his former employers for being a fraud. What I'm saying is that if you want to be a salesman go ahead. They'll hire anyone with a pulse and a resume. Have fun having up down checks every week too.
