      Good job for right out of college but nothing long-term

      8 Jul 2020 - Customer Service Representative

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Great benefits, profit sharing, generous facilities (on-site gym + sauna), cool catering programs for lunch, good starting pay for starting out right out of college, great tuition reimbursement program

      Cons

      Strict dress code, tons of micro management, they don't hold their customers to any sort of accountability and it WILL come back on you, even if it was the customer's fault, owners are very opinionated, honestly it felt like I was in the 1960's with how prejudiced towards women they are, miniscule hourly wage increases (In the two years I was there, I think I got maybe 75 cents total), if you don't fit their mold or drink their Koolaid, you won't have any sort of opportunities for growth, you're punished for minor mistakes by either being placed on a performance plan or having certain job duties withheld from you

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Good salary, with some flexibility. Coworkers are great. Training is top notch.

      Cons

      Micro managing is the worst thing in the history of micro managing. There is a report for EVERYTHING with this company. If you’re on the phone too long, you get an email, if you’re trying to look for a new job, you get an email, if you don’t finish your work by end of day, you get an email. You get reviewed monthly about your numbers even though you don’t make commission. Dress code is stuck in 1980 when the company first started. Management and HR claim they listen to the feedback from employees, but in reality this never changes. Hence why the dress code is still in the 1980’s. Oh and you have to clock in every day even when you’re a salary employee!
