    I worked at Omega Business Consulting

    Pros

    A lot of hands on training and great for people looking for Marketing and Sales experience. The greatest thing about this business is that they just plain and simple give you a chance. I had zero experience coming into the working world, fresh out of college with no idea what I wanted to do. This job just gave me a ton of experience and knowledge that I will use in the future.

    Cons

    Commitment. I am only 24 years of age and had to move back to my home town. Instead of relaxing all the time like I wanted with some of my friends, I had to work. It's for very goal driven people who want to be successful so I understood why I was working so hard

    I worked at Omega Business Consulting full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    People are very comfortable to be around and the atmosphere of the business was crazy energetic. Each day I had to make sure I was on top of my game to learn new things. You get a very realistic image of why it's hard to run a business and how to overcame anything that may come your way. After working here I would say my attitude and demeanor has improved just because I understand so much more. If you want good experience...

    Cons

    Work puts a lot of pressure on you. You have to be willing to sacrifice a lot because the return is going to be running a business. If your looking for just a peaceful work day where you don't have to worry about anything then this would not be for you. You have to be someone who can manage yourself or you will get nowhere.

    Cons

    -Lack of transparency--the job is marketed as a "management training program" with a wonderful opportunity to make a large amount of money over a period of 2-3 years. The numbers work. Many things are not stated up front, however, such as the severe time requirements of the job (6 day work weeks and 12 hour days). Also, the extremely low pay as measured against hours per day. Also, few people are told that the actual...

    I worked at Omega Business Consulting full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    There is a big learning curve so you learn tactics very quick for work and non work related subjects. Very energetic atmosphere for the most part every one supports each other. Trainers are very helpful and knowledgeable. Great to add to a resume

    Cons

    Some of the higher ups can be very exclusive and uninviting if you approach them. The hours are ridiculous! 10:30 to 9pm Monday through Saturday then they expect you to go out with the office after work twice a week as a way to set up appointments with higher ups so with that you can add another hour and a half or so to your day. And what I hated most they were very vague about the job description in the interviewing...

    Pros

    I have been with the company for about 3 months now and I have loved the job since day 1. The competitive atmosphere, the energetic work environment, and the team building activities keep me coming back. This is my first job out of college and I could not have asked for a better one. I love the opportunity here and the amount of responsibility I am given on a daily basis really makes me feel like a valuable asset to this...

    Cons

    The job is definitely stressful at times. I am also working on a commission based salary, but all that does is make me want to work harder than everyone else.

    Pros

    Great work environment. People are generally willing to help you, give you advice and train you. Have career advancement opportunities based upon your performance.

    Cons

    When I had my second interview with the company, the interviewer did not go over the job specifications and very vaguely defined the job, which I later found out was a door-to-door sales with 100% commission based. Even if you get promoted to "Corporate Leader" position where you start to take more responsibility, the pay is still 100% commission based.

    Advice to Management

    I know that posting your job description as "Door-to-door" sales would become less attractive to job-seekers, but it is what it is and I wish that the role and responsibilities of the job had been more clearly stated.

    The people are phenomenal, young and energetic. Make as much as we want. Learn plenty about team building, territory management, and public relations, they provide you all the tools you'll need to prepare for management

    Cons

    Can be stressful at times but what job isn't? Other than that can't really think of any other cons besides the long hours but of course, gotta put in the work for success you want

    Pros

    I have worked with the company a little less than a year now and I absolutely love my job. coming from 6 years of banking experience, i came across this company to which i didnt even apply for, i came in for 3 different interviews to which moved rather quickly, i was informed of the company's business and what they did, what their day to day lifestyle was, the pay structure, etc,. by the end of my final round interview...

    Cons

    the hours are long dont get me wrong, there may be days when i'll be overwhelmed with stress, but as i've said before, my peers were there to pick me back up again and motivated me to continue pushing myself for success. the only thing i dislike about this job are people who bring in negativity. we're all here to succeed, just because you don't think it's for you doesnt mean its not for the next person.

    Advice to Management

    more tangible goals/bonuses. opportunity meetings with excerpts of promotions from past conferences. more "vision" of the "big picture"
