    I worked at The HOTH full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    There's always work available. You do learn a lot about SEO and there's a lot of opportunity to move to other areas (in my experience, you start off as a content writer, then you can apply to be part of the topics team, and ultimately make it to the QA team).

    Cons

    While there is a lot of work available, the pay is subpar. As a content writer, you'd get $16 for a 500-word article. 1000-word articles are worth something like $28 and a 1500-word article is worth $36 or something like that. It's been a while since I've done any work there, so payments may have changed. You would think that if you're doing more work (higher word count, need to find more high-authority sites for your...

    Advice to Management

    Make payments fair - more work shouldn't equate to less money.

    I have been working at The HOTH full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Everyone who works here is awesome and willing to help you. They are also all very welcoming. The opportunity for professional development is awesome too. Cannot forget the location either. St. Pete and The HOTH office are beautiful.

    Cons

    Can be very fast-paced at times. Pay isn't quite what I would like. They could be a little more transparent with pay structure and opportunities to advance.

    Advice to Management

    I would recommend being a little more transparent with the pay structure and what to expect there. Other than that, nothing.

    Pros

    The company culture is unlike any other. Everyone genuinely cares for each other and helps each other grow and succeed. I haven't experienced this much support and kindness from any previous job than I do at The HOTH. The management challenges and pushes you to be your best self because they have full confidence in their employees. This company has helped me become the successful and confident person I've always wanted...

    I have been working at The HOTH full-time

    Pros

    The Hoth is by far the greatest job I've ever had. The organization provides all the tools and guidelines to help each individual succeed. You are challenged to make decisions, and you're supported on them. Our work environment is always positive, and everything is done in a team effort. Truly the greatest career path I've chosen.

    Cons

    There is honestly nothing negative I can say about The HOTH.

    I have been working at The HOTH full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Everyone is incredibly friendly and always works their hardest. People are always in a great mood and that spreads around the whole office. Management does a great job making sure everyone has whatever they need to do their best job possible.

    Cons

    It can be a little stressful sometimes when there are a lot of different things going on all at the same time.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on doing what you're doing, The HOTH is doing great and nothing can stop this train

    I have been working at The HOTH full-time

    Pros

    This company knows how to make their employees want to work for them. The owners and managers encourage all employees to communicate their wants and needs and not only listen but constantly follow through. I moved across the country and am so thankful I landed at The Hoth. Everyone was incredibly welcoming and I had this group of strangers going out of their way to help me get settled my first few weeks. Never felt like...

    Pros

    I spent 3 years dreading my old job. I persistently pursued a job at the Hoth because I liked their transparency and culture. This job has honestly changed my life. I am happier every second of every day because I get to work with such intelligent, fun people. The office is modern and the views are spectacular. Management honestly cares about each employee and their lives. This company is a success rocketship and it's...

    Elevators suck. Things move fast here can seem easy to fall out of the loop if you are not constantly aware.

    I have been working at The HOTH part-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Work when you want. From home, from the bar, from the plane. Pay is good if you're a fast writer. And note: pay is good if this is a SIDE GIG. It blows my mind that people try this as their full time job. That would be so stressful (+ no benefits.) I normally take on the minimum # of required articles each week and I enjoy the extra cash for travel, gifts, etc. This job does not (and cannot) pay my real bills. ...

    Cons

    Queue sometimes runs low or dry, meaning don't rely on this for regular income. Quality Control (QC) can be sticklers sometimes (e.g. please reduce paragraph to 3 sentences...but if they'd taken the 10 seconds to do it, would already be off to client and earning revenue.)
