    Pros

    Nothing. I worked here for one day and went home and cried because of how horrible this place is. My other con is that I didn't write this review earlier.

    Cons

    Nothing. Seriously the worst management team, the CEO is the worst. She is a liar and a manipulative individual. Did they teach you the Pyramid Scheme in college?

    Advice to Management

    Ditch your forever 21 clothes and sell your business.

    I worked at InStile Acquisitions full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The fact that this position is 100% commission would give a person an opportunity to make decent wages, unfortunately the lies presented by management don't keep people around long enough to find out.

    Cons

    I have no problem working a 100% commission job. Most sales positions are strictly commission, but the lack of ethics and integrity of management sends hardworking, ethical employees running.

    Advice to Management

    Replace the "CEO". This person should be investigated for fraud. She's a embarrassment to legitimate, hardworking business owners everywhere.

    some long hours on some days but at the end of the day- very productive and rewarding to learn the business and grow within the company

    Advice to Management

    No advice given - the management runs a good company and very helpful- great coach

    Pros

    Working with nice people, but that's about it. If you have any sense of dignity, STAY AWAY FROM INSTILE ACQUISITIONS

    Cons

    100% commission, you don't get paid a week after your customer gets installed with AT&T U-verse, there's a high percentage that your customer will cancel and you will NOT get paid
    Sometimes it can take up to a month for your customer to get installed and you don't get paid until after installation
    You're going door to door to neighborhoods Morgan sends you in and some neighborhoods are dangerous and Morgan expects you to go to these apartments or houses alone to try to get people to buy a sub-par product
    You work 6 days a week from 10:30-9pm and if you try to take a day off Morgan will not pay you your $600 training pay
    You only get paid $600 after you close sales, otherwise don't expect that paid training at all
    Expect to be lied to, there is no salary pay and there are no benefits
    Morgan tells her interviewers to lie to the interviewees, I was told to tell interviewees that I can make a living off this job, but the truth is no one is making enough to get by working at this job
    You are forced to go out and sell door to door to strangers in any weather, Morgan WILL send you out in rain or snow. She does not care
    She talks about how rich she is in morning meetings, but acts as if she is so poor and tries to avoid paying you once you quit. She has told every one of my old coworkers who quit that she has sent out a check, but of all six people I've contacted they were told the same story of their checks getting mailed out and never receiving them
    I have never met a CEO who is as selfish as Morgan, she does not care about her employees and has never felt any compassion for them
    They work so hard and sacrifice so much of their time for little to no pay even working over-time for a CEO who doesn't care unless they bring in cash

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees for over-time. You will be reported for not compensating them for over-time. Run your business with better ethical practices and morals. Care for your employees and actually pay them instead of planting false hope that they will be making money, but they won't

    Pros

    Getting experience in sales, marketing, HR, and management. Being able to network with anyone in the company on a day to day basis. Finally, being able to grow within the company based your own work ethic and performance.

    Cons

    The hours are pretty long, but there is tremendous upside.

    Advice to Management

    When you get into the business, be 100% focused and 100%. The more locked in you are, the faster you grow within the company.

    Pros

    If you like to walk around and get doors slammed in your face, then this is the place for you.

    Cons

    - Sucky pay - worked my butt off for 2 weeks of training and missed one day due to a doctors appointment and was told, through a voicemail, that I would not get paid for my training unless I came in. When I tried to contact them to work something out, I NEVER got a response. I tried e-mailing as well and heard nothing back. I found out that day I was pregnant and I knew this company was not a fit for me,

    - Long hours - 9am - 8pm walking around getting yelled at and doors slammed in your face.

    - Favoritism - they put on a good face of treating everyone equal but behind the scene you better watch your back because they are only after whats best for themselves and their friends.

    - Rude - they talk about motivation but at the end of the day they just tell you what you did wrong and what you should do next time.

    - HORRIBLE PLACE TO WORK

    Advice to Management

    Learn to treat all your employees with respect and run a good company.

    Pros

    This is a great company to work for! I have been employed now for 1 year and I could not be happier with my decision to join InStile Acquisitions! The environment is very outgoing, friendly and competitive, but it only motivates you to work harder. You have an opportunity for fast advancement within this company.

    Cons

    What you put in the business is what you get out of it! It requires great work ethic and determination to make it in this company. Lazy and unmotivated people will not excel in this environment.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!

    Pros

    Working with InStile Acquisitions is a very fun and warm environment. People are friendly and always offer a hand to help. This is a helping organization and the relationships you build here with your team is more than just professional. We work hard together but we also play hard as well. I have learned so much about teamwork, personal and professional growth and I will apply these principles to grow an organization of my own.

    Cons

    I do not have any cons about working for this company. Honestly, if you work hard you will see the results. Your experience is what you make it.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up! Fun and great learning environment that allows people to grow professionally and personally.

    I worked at InStile Acquisitions full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Made good friends.
    Team nights were fun.
    No one micro managing you
    Relaxed office environment
    Decent training provided
    Learn sales technique

    Cons

    Hire and fire people everyday. Door to door sales. Long hours 9 to 9. Very biased on who they promote. I was even one of the people who they liked but still wasn't fun. All commission. If you don't make a sale you don't get paid. No base salary. They say there is one but there isn't. Don't be fooled. It's a pyramid scheme. For every promotion the CEO makes she gets a percent of their sales from the new company when they become a manager. She bragged about paying off her loans and buying a brand lexus
