    I have been working at The Acquisition Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Absolutely no micromanagement - there isn't someone looking over your shoulder every 2 minutes telling you exactly how to do everything
    Full support - if you have questions or concerns there is always someone there to help guide you
    Fun atmosphere - everyone is welcoming and friendly, it's like working with close friends or family
    Growth potential - whatever you put in is what you get out of your time with TAG, the sky really is the limit
    Changing workload - every week is different, the work never gets boring or repetitive

    Cons

    Hours can be long depending on the day and what's going on. Those that are willing to work hard won't mind this. There can also be high thresholds to meet but again, those willing to put in the effort will reap the benefits.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up!

    Pros

    This company has to offer great compensation model with the potential of making a lot more than what market pays. Other than that it's not a typical call center, it's a fun team environment to work in and TAGs culture is full of energy and enthusiasm which makes you feel energized all the time. Office location is ideal with Granville Casino and Starbucks right across the office building.

    Cons

    Sometimes too much fun is little bit distracting.

    I worked at The Acquisition Group full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I don't work here anymore

    Cons

    you get lied to on a daily basis by management.
    Overpromise & Under deliver.
    When I worked at TAG there was always problems with my pay.
    They will promise you the sun , moon & stars and not follow thru.
    Given the growth structure they use . you are constantly being used and abused by management as what you do determines how well they are paid. (you do the dog work, they reap the rewards)
    Be under no illusion, this is a Door to Door sales job.
    They will lie to you and tell you that its Business to Business and that you will be managing accounts etc.
    You have no office and constantly outside knocking on doors.

    Poor pay - It actually cost me money to work here, and put me back a good few months.

    Advice to Management

    Stop lying .. Tell people what the job actually is - is it any wonder people leave after one day when they realize what they'll actually be doing ! its not fair to false advertise , these are peoples lives/ careers your playing with!

    Also leave your egos at the door, don't try and make people feel small & stupid.
