    I have been working at Green Guard full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Lots of freedom. You can do whatever you want as long as you make your numbers. Get to meet a lot of people.

    Cons

    Office refuses to help. Technology is from the Middle Ages even after the upgrade. Difficult to make personnel changes due to PC.

    Pros

    There are really no Pros at all working for Green Guard First Aid And Saftey. Do yourself a huge favor and stay away.

    Cons

    Pay is very low...poverty level pay. There is no way to support a dog, let alone a human, on the pay. They will promise you big commission but this is a huge lie. Product is almost impossible to sell. I was successful in sales for over 19 years so had high hopes of great commissions. They tell you one thing and then change the commission plan and not pay you. Managers are extremely unprofessional and do not lead at all. Promised 12 weeks of training but than never happened. Do not leave your job for this company. You will regret it eight away. Also...no HR structure at all so good luck getting anything done about the extremely unfortunate treatment you receive from management.

    Advice to Management

    Poor management so not really worth my effort.

    I worked at Green Guard full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Green Guard is the place where you develop your skills and create your contacts that are going to carry you thru the rest of your life. There are sales jobs, were Zig Ziegler would have been fired in first thirty days due to lack of production. Whole Life Insurance and Copier sales come to mind. Very few could make that work and doesn't mean there not right for sales. Green Guard thru there structured education programs, help develop employees skills at a slower pace by balance out cold calling and relationship selling which is vital in every buisness. Most people that leave go on to be very successful in life at there next job.

    Cons

    Summer's are hot and winters are cold. You won't get rich and sometimes they focus more on paperwork than sales. But it's competitive wage and I saved a lot of money not devaluing my assets.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure you let turtles crawl and thoroughbreds run. And don't put so much value into what the office reports.

    I have been working at Green Guard full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Easy job. Good working hours.

    Cons

    Poor management with no experience, lack of training, sales director has no clue (al bundy,shoe salesman), low pay scale, micro-manage, unfair treatment to employees accross the board, technologically inclined, contests are a joke with an incentive to earn a pocket change over a 3 month period with taxes taken out. No advancement opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    Find another career.

  9. "Territory manager."

    Pros

    First year is only year you can make money because goals are based on the sucker who just got fired in his second year after he couldn't increase sales due to nobody really needs this stuff!

    Cons

    2nd year goals force you to oversell to customers and since no contract, you'll be out. Oh yeah, there are no govt. laws or rules saying companies have to have first aid boxes- I box of band aids is fine. Don't believe anything else. Also watch out for other Tm's selling in your territory. And guy who started this is a pompous you know what who yelled at me for taking a deep breath during a meeting.

    Advice to Management

    No they've got this all figured out. Since all about owner making $, pretty good plan to keep employees from being long term and wanting to make more money.
