    Pros

    Full-time work. Progressive training program. Sculpted scripts. Monday through Friday, no nights or weekends.

    "Sales Rep."

    Star Star Star Star Star
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    Above minimum wage base pay plus commissions. Full benefits package. Choice of shift with overtime sometimes necessary, but just 1 extra hour per day. Incoming calls - many of which are already familiar with the company and have purchased in the past. Management does a good job in coaching & is always there when you need them. I was very happy there.

    Cons

    Calls are timed & it is necessary to keep them extremely brief. Company keeps getting bought and sold with major shake-ups that effect good and hard working employees.

    I worked at Harris Connect full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I worked for B.C. Harris Publishing Company that became Harris Connect from 1993-2016. Harris really took good care of me over the 23 years. I was able to continuously get promoted and be a big part in accomplishing company goals. They gave me excellent support at every level.

    Cons

    They sold to a new company that did not want individual remotes in separate states. Not personal, just business.

    Advice to Management

    Good Luck and keep moving forward! I will miss you all deeply!
