    I worked at Promove full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Decent Pay if you're a hard worker and can stay on task.

    Full Benefits

    Good Management on the lower levels

    Cons

    100% Commission

    You will pay back any bad periods you have

    LONG hours, 50+hr work week

    The way they give you leads is awful. You have to pick the phone up before anyone else in the call center to get a potential client

    No recourse for clients who don't refer you so you will not get paid for your work.

    No longer the industry leader in Atlanta so leads/clients are worse overall

    No promotion scale that matters, you will only advance into a higher commission percentage a couple of times, once you've hit that level the only way to go is down a paygrade.

    They were downsizing and converting the offices to call centers when I left. Management and the nature of the job are getting more impersonal.

    Advice to Management

    Better storefronts and locations for real foot traffic.

    Work on distributing leads better. Currently this is a feeding frenzy

    Get rid of the Draw entirely

    I have been working at Promove full-time

    Pros

    Can make good money sometimes.

    Cons

    Commission should be higher than it is.

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

    Pros

    Food is often provided on the weekends.

    Buckhead Location is nice, and in a great area obviously.

    Opportunity to make a lot of money due to commission and bonus structure.

    Benefits package optional

    You can make a decent amount of money with decent effort.

    There is a Draw that will allow you to make money even if you've made none. Training pay for 90 days as well.

    If you interview, you'll probably get hired.

    Cons

    Micromanagement seems to be part of the culture.

    Not for a customer service type, makes it difficult to achieve the immediate sale results demanded.

    Entirely Commission

    Disposable, and will be disposed of quickly if desired.

    Too many people need a side job for a place that takes up most of your time. It's a sales environment in every meaning of the word.

    It's an expectation on some level to be there 6 days a week.

    If you're hired, you'll probably end up leaving before the 1st year.

    If you use the draw after not making money, you'll have to pay back everything you borrow. That is the purpose however.

    Advice to Management

    Aggressively Recruit for Salesmen specifically rather than training and releasing people with little to no sales experience. Promove doesn't have to be a revolving door.

    Pros

    #1 Is management, at the North Druid Hills location my manager, John Parent was the reason I was able to jump start my career. Taught me foundations to sales, customer service and work ethic!

    #2 is $$$$$ - you work hard, you get paid.

    #3 Atmosphere - at my office we all were a community, and brought the best out in one another.

    Cons

    You work 100 hrs bi weekly, on average. Not enough time to enjoy life, but like I said in the title, if you're trying to get a good paying job, and build up your resume - you shouldn't be worrying about vacationing to begin with.

    The other complaint was not getting to know the other managers/corporate staff. Come see us, your opinion, feedback, and time is more motivational than you think!

    Advice to Management

    Try and figure out a way to ensure your employees are being compensated for the time, sacrifices and sweat they put into your work. My office manager was only able to do so much for us on such a tight budget. But regardless, your business model is on point, and you set us up for success, I am grateful and have nothing but good things to say about this CO.

    Pros

    - Write your own paycheck - hard work equals great return
    - Laid back work environment
    - Great bonus system
    - Gain knowledge about Atlanta
    - Gain Sales and customer service skills

    Cons

    - Weekends and long hours
    - Quality of leads
    - Referral system from apartments to insure payment

    Advice to Management

    My advice to upper management would be to consult with your longer tenured employees on system changes and ideas. Marketing for leads should be focused to more qualified people based on where our market and prices are here in Atlanta. PROMOVE needs to overhaul their website and filter non-qualified leads before they reach property specialist to maximize time for agents.

    I worked at Promove full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The only pro about working at this place is free lunch on saturdays and majority of your co-workers are pretty cool.

    Cons

    EVERYTHING. If you like to hustle and make 100% commission and don't want a life then work here. If you are a family man/women and have children at home. Go ahead and hire a full-time nanny and tell your husband or wife you will see them on sundays only. One of my very best friends was in the top 10 on a regular basis but he also ONLY worked. Our social life was little to none, unless they were co-workers. The only true time off you get is sundays but thats because they are closed. However back in the day when i used to work in another Promove location they were open on Sundays and you were on a rotating schedule. But the pay has changed since that time as well as the owners went bankrupt and sold themselves to Rent money. If i passed you on the street and you asked me if i should work at Promove not only would i tell you NO i would tell you hell NO. Angela Nash is a heartless person that enslaves people. There is no sense of community in this company don't waste your time. You are on the same level as a used car salesman. Don't let them fool you about the pay, if you don't find any leases you will end up owing them money. The only way that you will keep money in your pocket is staying in your seat with your finger on the button. The most stressful unhappy working environment.

    Advice to Management

    Go jump off a cliff.

    I worked at Promove full-time

    Pros

    You can pretty much write your own check. No cold calling, leads come in all day long; sometimes too many leads to handle. Service is free for the customer, you've just got to be very good at follow up and make sure your customers remember to refer you. Work environment is fun, especially if you get along well with your teammates.

    Cons

    If you want to make the extra bonus money, you've got to work hard.

    Advice to Management

    Be available more to listen and assist with situations.
