    If you are an human being without a conscience , this is the place for you.
    Was told there was a vehicle allowance.....FALSE !

    Advice to Management

    Why bother they would never listen..... Too full of themselves!!.
    They like most multi national companies arent going to listen to anyone!...especially those who are in the trenches

    Pros

    Best products on the market.
    Excellent training to make you successful.
    It's an easy sell if you follow their training.
    If you stick it out, 3 plus years you can make good money.
    Great reward trip if you make your goals.

    Cons

    Products two to three times as expensive as the competition.
    Company has a bad reputation for poor customer service.
    They only pay $300 a month to cover your expenses, which doesn't even cover gas.
    They didn't believe in taking time off ask to work Christmas Eve, day after Thanksgiving, etc.
    I could go on and on, if $50k a year is a lot of money to you it's a great job. If not, stay away.

    Advice to Management

    Return customers are cheaper and more profitable than constantly finding new ones. Focus on building relationships instead of constantly focusing on the quick sale.

  3. Do not work in IT! Business folks are cool. Nothing ground breaking happening. Clock watchers stuck in The dark agaes!

    Pros

    Steady and frugle, yes that is the only pro.

    Cons

    Technology, lack of budget, poor management, unqualified directors with egos who take every opportunity to fail to lead, inspire or communicate effectively with their teams.

    Advice to Management

    Be flexible, allow work from home, quit watching clocks, respect your employees. Get some some management training for those IT managers

    Pros

    None really.... We were off on weekends? That's about it. There was never really anything good going on there.

    Cons

    I was a receiving supervisor at the Irving plant. I was terminated with no cause. I was trained for two days and thrown out in my own. My team wasn't allowed to work overtime but everyone else did, putting us constantly behind. When I filed for unemployment they lied and am said I had been written up multiple times with no proof. Because I never had a reprimand. They told the unemployment office I wasn't qualified to do my job... I was there 13 months. Worst company ever.

    Advice to Management

    You should all be let go.

    Pros

    Good earning potential if you don't live in a declining area

    Cons

    Horrible management, awful marketing, non-existent knowledge of trends
    Company is doomed to fail. No interest in employee input. Disengaged account managers due to management. No hope in sight. Run!

    Advice to Management

    Get lost! Marketing should never run a company. Your eyes and ears are the people on the street not the incompetent marketing clowns sitting behind their desks.

    Pros

    If you can get in and deal with management then you might be ok.

    Cons

    Leave applicants hanging for long periods of time then when they finally turn down applicants they say they are going with more qualified applicants but I have a friend in the company that says they usually fill from within or with cheaper applicants to save money.

    Advice to Management

    If you are going to turn down qualified applicants at least have the decency to be truthful and let them know you never intended to hire someone from the outside, you only posted the position because you had to in order to fill it with a pre-selected internal applicant. Sending out a standard email stating that you are going with more qualified applicants without even looking at the resume or qualifications is bad business.

    Pros

    They do sell good quality products

    Cons

    Management and corporate structure is a joke. They promise the world and don't deliver on anything. They will not give you the pay that you were told or contracted to receive.

    Advice to Management

    Kill yourself.

    I have been working at NCH

    Pros

    Great way to polish up on phone interview and practice face to face interview

    Cons

    Hear how you are treated like family, blah blah.. Do not have common courtesy to contact you or respond to status of interview. Met with 2 people that couldn t consistently answer questions regarding compensation.

    Advice to Management

    Do not leave people hanging in the wind. If you have chosen another candidate then at least send email. Ignoring is very unprofessional
