    I worked at Z57 full-time

    Pros

    This company has "Core Values" something that I never new existed in a professional work setting. These Core Values are what sold me on working here. I really respected the fact that an ENTIRE company lived and performed by these values setting an amazing example for everyone working here and all clients we helped. I always felt supported and encouraged to continue growing and challenging myself to reach new limits of excellence.

    I appreciated the environment, my colleagues and the management team. Everyone was so incredibly friendly, supportive and honest. I truly felt embraced as part of a something great.

    Cons

    The only con I can think of was having to start everyday at 6:30am.

    Advice to Management

    Keep encouraging the "Core Values", it truly shapes the entire environment and attitude of this awesome work place.

    Pros

    The training program includes marketing/sales education, sales strategy, and how to utilize your strengths to be successful in business. This includes a significant amount of one-on-one coaching. The management staff is very interested in helping you find personal motivators and pushing you to reach your goals. If you want to work hard, make a lot of $, and grow as a sales rep, this is the place to learn.

    Cons

    The hours work for some people more than others and the dress-code is kind of hard to define. Although, neither of these really matter when you're seeing success.

    Advice to Management

    Ongoing education is very helpful and motivating. You do a great job making sure reps don't fall through the cracks, so keep that up!

    Pros

    It was a pleasure getting to work around professional management and an incredible sales floor. I will miss the environment tremendously.

    Cons

    The only con I have is the hours. Not being a morning person, getting up very early in the morning was especially difficult.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to do training for employees.

    I have been working at Z57 full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    This company is the perfect fit for anyone who wants to be challenged, likes an upbeat fast paced environment, and wants career opportunities. As someone who has brought the right attitude to work every day, I have experienced the personal and professional growth that comes with the commitment. Continuous growth, development, and education are big focus points of the new leadership that recently took over at Z57, which is exactly what the company needed to take the next step in the industry. The most encouraging shift in the mentality is the "client obsessed" approach to the business as a whole.

    Cons

    More appreciation for the employees would go a long way; recognition is a big part of the culture, but appreciation goes further than just recognition. With that said, I believe impact of the restructuring of the leadership will be immediate- I'm really excited to see where we'll be in a year!

    Advice to Management

    Upgrade the furniture! We have a lot of talent here, lets attract some more and continue to put the people and clients first and we'll be industry leaders again in no time.

    Pros

    Fun and friendly people to work with. Upbeat atmosphere with lost of energy.

    Cons

    Terrible pay, little to no upward mobility in company, dirty work environment, high stress.

    Advice to Management

    This is more directed to those much higher up than the managers: Invest back into your employees for example providing them up with up to date equipment.
