    I worked at The Connor Group full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Promises of good hours and benefits and a great place to work.

    Cons

    They will work you to death doing things that are not part of your job and that you don't get the upscale pay for, then short your pay every chance they get. They go into their computer system and change your hours worked and have you sign "corrected" time sheets while never allowing you to see the actual time punch times. Then when you post a complaint here, they quickly reply for you to contact them via phone or email so the public sees their reply but all they want is to know who you are that's giving them a bad rating so they can blacklist you.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees both for the hours worked, earned benefits, and pay them for the work that's out of their pay grades.

    Pros

    Team work, advancement, fair play, they CARE about their employees, benefits are endless.

    Cons

    As a Sales Agent, you don't know where you will be placed up front so it could be 15 miles or 60 miles from your house.

    Advice to Management

    More structure with upper management and a layout of career paths. Most of us have been managers before so one would assume we want a similar path again and in a timely manner.

    I have been working at The Connor Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Pay is good for what the job is, company offers great benefits. However the pay and benefits aren't worth selling out to such a horrible company.

    Cons

    There are too many to name. The company lies to their employees and residents. They use overly aggressive sales tactics that include making you harass prospects daily until they block your number or threaten harassment charges. The training is pitiful and the leadership is a boys club that pick and choose who they want to teach and coach.

    Advice to Management

    Blow the entire leadership staff up, hire a consultant and learn how to run a legitimate business that proactive what you preach.

    Pros

    Leaving retail was a scary but exciting venture. I have been with The Connor Group for almost 6 months now and I am excited to see where the company will take me. It's not easy work and you are challenged daily. Organization and personal drive are crucial for individual and company success. Rewards and incentive are unparalleled to most companies. Talk about bonus potential! If you are not afraid of hard work and are ready to work for a company that believes in and empowers their people then this is the place for you.

    Cons

    Nothing bad to say. Just be prepared to work hard in order to achieve your goals, you will be rewarded! Oh and my coworkers and management are amazing!

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what your doing. I think clear paths/plans for people looking to be promoted could be a little more direct.

    I worked at The Connor Group full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    There are no pros to this company. They will make you believe you'll be working for an upscale "luxury " company, but in reality you'll be scrubbing dirty tubs, continuously calling people on the daily and overselling a poor living experience. Forget making any sort of decisions, you'll always have to be waiting on upper management. They are the most unethical place I've ever come across. Don't waste your time.

    Cons

    They will probably find any reason to withhold your pay. And don't expect any R&R, it's all about favorites. Forget about having a life, you'll spend long hours at the office.

    Advice to Management

    Care for something other than the money.

    Pros

    The Connor Group is a fantastic place to work if you are goal-driven, hard-working, flexible, and detail oriented. This company has an environment of employees that are proud of what they do and work hard to achieve their goals. The expectations here are clear, and if you're motivated, you'll achieve them. The company also makes it a priority to recognize achievement and progress by celebrating their employees.

    With that being said, they have a lot of fun in the process! Que the dogs, events, and great co-workers.

    Cons

    The company warns you, they're not for everyone. It's a very fast paced environment that expects a lot out of employees and not everyone is up to the challenge.
