    Advice to Management

    *Really highlight success stories and share with your targetted opportunity clients instead of making the rep search them out. You guys get communications I think we don't hear about!

    Pros

    Good Benefits.
    Good money if you get lucky, make quota, and jump through their hoops.

    Cons

    My team lead was completely incompetent and biased. (The fact that you"re good at sales doesn't mean you will be a good manager)

    They honestly don't care about their employees.

    The work itself is very repetitive and boring.

    Overall, CareerBuilder claims many different things such as the fact that their employees are happy or that there is room to move up within the company. While there is some truth to this on rare occasions, overall it is false. The competitive environment creates a great sense of hostility among coworkers. I have witnessed employees get thrown under the bus by their colleagues as well as their team leads.

    When you are offered a position with this company, take it for the experience but I would strongly recommend looking for another job within a few months.

    PS - I have worked here for a while and have been successful.

    Advice to Management

    You give some team leads way too much credit.
    Sometimes, there is more to success than numbers (which is difficult to comprehend because this is a sales job).
