    Continue to provide incentives for team members in the form of residuals to facilitate and foster the building of long lasting careers with the company. The constant coaching by team managers and Management has been the backbone of continued record breaking production.

    Current Employee - Customer Service

    I have been working at Local Lighthouse

    Pros

    Most of the people who make up the customer service department are actually really nice and easy going. No gossip, no catty behavior - probably the best selection of individuals I've ever gotten to work with. A good mix of men and women, most of whom are dressed business casual. Easy company to be hired at.

    Cons

    Working in the customer service department is horrendous. Low pay, no benefits, generally treated like scum, consistently reminded that you're just a number (no matter how much extra effort you put in). Very poor workplace environment and poor management. Procedures change daily, most of them making your job increasingly more difficult. Everyone in the department wants to quit and is currently looking for new employment. Yes, there's room for growth, but most of the other departments are still just as poorly managed. They tell you it's all going to get better soon, but every day they make it harder on you. Training is sparse, they tell you a few basic details and then throw you on the phones with an incomplete handbook that only has the answer to half of your questions. So then you get to sit there and wait until a manager can assist you, but there's too many people with too many questions, so by the time they get around to you, your customer is furious and they take it out on you - every call of every day.

    There is absolutely no retention. The veterans have been here for less than 4 months, most of the people they started with having quit. The entire company is extremely disorganized and extremely money-oriented. If you work here, plan on treating your customers poorly and leeching out every last cent they have, because you'll get written up if you don't. Oh, and if that isn't enough, they'll straight up lie to you in the interview. Don't anticipate having health insurance and plan on being pressured into overtime. Also, no paid holidays. Isn't that super?

    Most of the reviews here I've noticed are from sales people. If you want to be hired here for sales, good for you. I'm sure you'll have a good time as we treat our sales team like gods and pay them well. For those of you who are applying for customer service, heed my warning and just don't.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You're lucky to have the employees that you do. You'd be hard pressed to find a better group of people. Consider treating them well so they stop quitting.

    Pros

    You can make $100K if you can handle the stress of 100% commission. We sell a solution that is inexpensive and works. Unfortunately many previous and current employees believe the opposite leading to unnecessisarily sleazy sales practices.

    Cons

    Baby management team has multiple meeting per day that discuss failures vs. accomplishments resulting in a depressed sales team, and lower sales. Individual reviews discuss failures further depressing the team leading to additional decreased sales. If you can ignore the motivational management style you will make tons of money.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take classes on how to inspire and lead a team. Pay for outside sales training and build a team of top sales performers. Stop concerning yourselves with the failures of underperforming team members. You will get a greater increase in sales by rewarding the top and creating a supportive environment other top sales performers want to join. You could have a team of professional $100K earners with a few minor adjustments

    Pros

    Great coffee maker and smiles.. ugly ones , but smiles, nice locations and decent equipment , pay is set but real closers would prefer better options

    Cons

    They never pay base pay and don't discuss comfort at work . Argumentative from senior staff about owed pay. Dress code a little high for a casual call center and cut your tie... what for?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get time sheets right, and don't cut ties.

    We are not "scammers", we do promise front page placement on the search engines and have a 30-90 day guarantee for all of our clients.
