    I have been working at Shore Thing Marketing full-time

    Pros

    the pro of working here , i get to travel all over the world . i get to be able to show my people-skills and prove my work ethic to my manager. One thing people are afraid of is working hard and they want a salary of $10 and hour and be comfortable i do not want to be comfortable and depend on a 401k when i retire i want to be able to retire in my 20's or 30's and here i can do that

    Cons

    um um um um um .....

    Pros

    No pros whatsoever this place sucks and is a pyramid scam

    Cons

    They require a 10+hour day. There rip you off with pay. They tell you there is a base rate but only pay you commission and not even all of it. I never got paid what I earned. I complained and just got a bonus. This place is a time suck. They require you to be there all day and then after your shift you have to stay after quite late and play games then go out to eat. You do not make enough money to do that. This place really sucks. You work like an 80 hour week for barely any pay. Stay away

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees and cut your ridiculous hours

    Pros

    It's a lot of fun, the environment is amazing.
    If you are good at sales, this job is great.

    Cons

    It's door to door sales.
    You pay for everything. (No Benefits)
    Drive your car around all day. Sometimes no income.
    They say base salary of 400 dollars a week or 100% commission... however if you don't 10 sales you don't get anything.
    You feel like you're conning people even if you are saving them money.

    Advice to Management

    Please don't be so shady about everything.
    Keep telling us to have integrity, when you guys sign people up for Direct Energy even if it isn't saving them money.

    Pros

    Can't really think of any pros.

    Cons

    They hide what the actual position is during the interview. They don't directly tell you it's a door to door position that is 100% commission. They expect you to work longer hours than originally told. The manager plays favorites and the employees all have a cultish mindset. Also, there is no work life balance you will be spending all of your time at the job.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest during the interviews

    Pros

    You MIGHT make a friend or two. Otherwise, there are zero pros I can give to them. Just being honest. (This review is not a reflection of Rich. This is about the other team and CEO he shares an office with).

    Cons

    1. You are just a number to them.
    2. You will not have a personal life.
    3. Your personal life will become your work life and that is highly frowned upon, but they brought it upon you.
    4. The D2D "owner" is a snake. He plays favorites and will turn on you the second he feels threatened.
    5. It's literally like a cult.
    6. If you are desperate for work, this is the place for you, otherwise please don't quit your job to come here.
    7. You won't get benefits.
    8. 11-8 will turn into 10-11 real quick.
    9. They make you pay for your own gas (with zero reimbursement) and the recommended team nights come out of your pocket as well.
    10. DON'T trust anyone you work with.
    11. And to all of my fellow college grads, please please please don't even entertain the interview! You are better than this "company"!
    12. You will not be a "business owner," you will end up workin for other clients, selling their product, while still being under the control of Cydcor. You won't own anything, sweetheart.

    Advice to Management

    First of all, don't match up interviewees with peopl they can "identify with" just to get them to like that person, so they'll start.
    Second, tell them what it is.
    Third, stop being snakes.

    Pros

    I loved the atmosphere and how friendly the team, as well as management, were. I learned so much from this position and definitely brought me out of my shell.

    Cons

    The job isn't for everyone. You definitely have to work hard but the growth is endless so the hard work pays off in the end.

    Pros

    This is the most positive & self developing place I've ever worked for!! Everyday, Everyone is so excited about being there. Why? Opportunity. I've worked for many years for a company & never got recognized or promoted. At this company you get the opportunity for both & not years, but days after I started!! I never want to do anything else or work anywhere else!!!

    Cons

    If you don't have a positive attitude, good work ethic, passionate about anything, or can't be on time, or you aren't coachable, or you can't be prepared then do not work here.

    Advice to Management

    Thank you for seeing the opportunity in me!
