I enjoyed IT sales and working with national accounts. The best part of the job was penetrating the accounts and building relationships. The commute was a little far but management was great and I was very close to the internal managers and the owner. This company has since gone out of business.
They hire most people even felons for around $10 an hour. sometimes they have ridiculous rules and goals. Focus is all based on what their client wants ( they provide sales and customer service solutions for companies) Sometimes they don't push back to protect the employees from over scrutiny. not a bad place to go when you are down on your luck or desperately need a job. but as with most jobs like this... all Perks, no real benefits.... hard to tolerate long term and they often took away 10 an hour if you didn't meet 40 hrs per week.... a sick day can cost you way more here. no real sick day system... no real PTO its very backwards how it was being done.
Poor management with low understanding of what surveyors really do in real world. Run as a money factory with no bonus or decent benefits. lots of long work days were often followed by months of uncertainty and no pay coming in.
high pay during busy periods
long hours, management intentionally forgets booked days off
They tell you you only have to work 8 hours and they will work with you part time. THAT IS A LIE. You have to make up the time you spent going to the bathroom and have to make up ALL of your breaks including your lunch. And they are always asking for more hours. The managers are a joke and always demanding. They made a team stand up until they completed a sale.
This place is terrible. They expect you to live at your job with little compensation and a huge amount of personal disrespect. The pay is almost the bare minimum of what they have to pay you. This versus their expectations on your job performance is hardly fair. One of the worse jobs that I've ever had.

Is Indeed your favorite place to learn about companies?
I helped in Focus Academy in teaching Mathematics subjects, statistics subjects, and training HR as courses. Where Focus academy is an academy where you can find students learning and having the depth of knowledge in their majors and at the same time enjoying having the width of knowledge by attending the workshops arranged by the staff (mostly teachers) and taking HR and life skills training's and conferences.
teaching university students was usually good because they are grown up adults and respectful
long working hours on private lessons and with no breaks and a very short lunch break (15 minutes)
Put me on the pool list because they told me they would put me on medical leave but didn't fill out the paper work. Can't afford to take care of a family with a unreliable income. They will send u home whenever it's slow enough they don't need u.
Paid lunch, chance to be hired to a&e
Every other thing.
Wash dishes most of the time by machine, help the cook, clean up after production and bakery. Put out trash, help set up carts. Make sure kitchen is clean before you leave at the end of the day
get along with fellow workers
your being watched by 2 legged rats
When I was originally hired there, I was supposed to be in charge of a big account. Unfortunately, that did not happen (the account had not yet been awarded and company ended up not winning). therefore, what I was given to work on was those positions that nobody else wanted to work on, with a very high failure rate. My manager was happy when I gave my notice because she said that she really liked my work ethic and could tell that I was a very hard worker but since I wasn't able to meet the numbers there was talk that they were going to let me go.
Very high energy in the work place. support from coworkers to succeed and an amazing management team
Focus was on of my favorite jobs. It was a relaxed yet high energy and supportive call center. It was a great place filled with friends and family and we all wanted eachother to succeed
Fun, supportive and relaxed workplace
not much room for advancement or pay increase
