    Pros

    Warm welcoming crew everyone becomes like family very quickly. Its a real learning experience with tons of oppourtunity to grow and learn. It also might seem overwhelming if your an introvert like i was it's turned me into of the most social ive been in along time.

    Cons

    The only con that exists is really with in your self. All jobs are hard all of them have down sides. You could say oh its cold well that's on you to wear actual winter clothes. oh the hours are to long again thats on you this job isnt just sales its where you learn to own and run a business and that's what real business owners do they work longer and harder than everyone else.

    Advice to Management

    No real advice to management so far love everyone here

    I worked at Pure Octane Talent full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    You will learn how to run a business and confidence when it comes to public speaking. You will also meet a ton of people and make long lasting friendships with those who survive the trenches.

    If you are best friends with the owner, you will get to travel once in a while.

    Cons

    The downsides to working here are more than I have time to share on this review. To sum it up, the owner trains his staff on how to manipulate new employees. If you ask around there is 5 people who have worked there for more than a year.

    They have reputable clients that they represent and are great at sales so it will seem as if they are legitimately promoting people left and right to run their own establishment when in fact everyone just works until they burn out mentally, psychically and emotionally.

    The motto is J.U.I.C.E which we told new hires stands for : Join Us In Creating Excitement when in reality it means Join Us In Conning Everyone.

    They will tell you that people who give poor reviews just "didn't have what it takes."

    I graduated their program and I can tell you, fast food employees make more than we did no matter how much we sold as an individual in the field, manager, or Owner.

    Lastly, we we were constantly asked to show up early or stay later "to better ourselves and show leadership" as a way to get us to work extra hours for free because 14 hour shifts were not good enough apparently.

    Advice to Management

    You need to treat people as employees and stop promoting it as anything else to cut corners and "lower your overhead."

    As you always tell us - "The CHEAPSKATE PAYS TWICE!"

    I worked at Pure Octane Talent full-time

    Pros

    Experience in sales and learn to work an above normal work day which looks great on your resume

    Cons

    Longest hours you will ever work for the pay. They will tell you all about commission your going to make to hype you up but don't be fooled! They only pay hourly they will explain a long formula to confuse you I worked there for a long time expecting to see a different result and it was literally always the same. By the same, I mean I earned less and less each pay.

    Look up Smart Circle reviews and educate yourself!

    Advice to Management

    Stop promoting various positions for hire because they are all "management training" at the end of the day.
