    The industry is interesting and there is always an opportunity to carve out a space for yourself and what you can do. Jump in where you can and prove you are valuable.

    I worked at The Robison Group full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    The management is awesome two of the best managers I’ve ever worked for was with this company. Dan and Greg.

    Cons

    The Office staff can make things very personal when you question them about mistakes or failed promises. The company also became very robiotic it had lost it’s heart.

    Advice to Management

    Treat the Investigators correctly they produce the product you put out, understand that. No video no business.. All Investigators are not created equally it’s hard to find a good one.

  4. Its only worth it if you do SIU

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

    Pros

    None (maybe pay but what good is money when you don’t have a life)

    Cons

    Where do I start with this horrible company.... YOU DONT HAVE A LIFE! They tend to take advantage of you by sending you hours away from home last minute Forget about scheduling any kind of appointments because you basically have retail hours Oh I forgot to mention you also don’t know what your hours are until the day before(night before) I made the stupid decision to go with this company and my brand new car now has...

    I worked at The Robison Group full-time

    Pros

    The pay is good. Management is even better. The FOM's do a great job in not micro managing and giving freedom to do the job how you see best without criticism. They don't make you feel bad when you lose somebody or make a mistake such as getting burned (although its not always your fault). You feel appreciated and recognized for good work. They are not on your behind all the time. The job has its fun moments.

    Cons

    Flexibility is not terrible if you ask in advance but for the most part the schedule stinks. You pretty much work every weekend. You work most holidays. Hard to have a good work-life balance. They send you far from home most days. The job itself can get boring after a while. A lot of sitting in your car. Summers can get rough. Some of the other PI's can have an ego. They make you pay for this expensive insurance. Daily...

    Advice to Management

    Give more weekends off. Especially in the summer. Other than that your company is above average. Definitely miss the job at times and some of the managers. Especially Hayden he is the best!

  7. Awesome company

    I have been working at The Robison Group for more than a year

    Pros

    As long as you are doing your job, you will be left alone and you will not be micro managed. Unlike other companies, this company, allows you to conduct your own style of investigation as long as it provides good results. This company also allows you to be exposed to S.I.U. investigations. Provide good results and you will have a good work experience.

    Cons

    In all honesty no cons in my eyes. The grass is not always greener on the other side. On the TRG side, trust me, its greener. Awesome company.

    Advice to Management

    keep up the good work!

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

    Pros

    Love the job, love the company, love the structure and love the future opportunities. Best part is the salary structure and not hourly. Slow in the winter and I still get paid. Huge benefit.

    Cons

    Very busy for about 10 months a year. But, being slower in the winter, I am able to take some time off and still get paid. Nice to spend time at the beach and not have to worry about unemployment or not garnering a check.

    Advice to Management

    Keep growing which will provide opportunity to us all.

    I have been working at The Robison Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    You get to travel all over. They're always hiring.

    Cons

    Was told I'd get certain days off, that never happens. They change your schedule all the time, and you work your days off, so it's hard to schedule appts. Salaried, but you work 6 days a week, minimum 50 to 60 hours. Turnover rate is harsh, it's hard to trust co workers and build a working relationship when people leave a lot. I've heard multi people say their paycheck has bounced.

    Advice to Management

    Standardize schedules a little more. Have your employees on different levels hold the same standards to everyone. Communication all around needs to be worked on.
