Did you have sales goals in your previous jobs?

4 Answers


It is basically a sales job. the office managers job is to make sure the office meets each mths budget. Budget is set by the corporation and each mth is based on the same mth the previous year plus a precentage more. No matter how well you do it will never be good enough . Office mgrs are paid a low salery but they offer a bonus. The bonus is paid only if the office reaches the budget and then office cost are subtracted from it like office employees overtime etc. Corporate also requires the om to be there usually an hour before the office opens and to be the last to leave. An om can plan on working at least 9-10 hour days m-f and then 1-2 saturdays a mth plus some after hour meetings, usually out of town that require the om to drive to after the office has been closed for the day. By the time salary and bounus is divided into the hours its almost minimum wage. If you want to see what an om's day consist of just google aspen reviews. Less

He wanted an accountant to use creative accounting. Would I be able to hide a book on how to cook game meat in the emergency preparedness account so he would have to claim it as owner's draw.

Oh where do I start? The owner is a Jew who doesn't like to pay his employees anymore than minimum wage. He expects you to work EVERY SINGLE SECOND you are at the office and if you leave at 5 when it is time for everybody to leave he tells you that your job isn't a priority. The owner is sneaky and shady and treats ALL of his employees like trash. He doesn't value the employees that at the end of everyday makes his money for him. He is the kind of person that wants something for nothing and he takes FULL advantage of his employees. I STRONGLY discourage ANYBODY from applying for a job at this is awful!! All of the employees are strictly there for a paycheck and not because they enjoy their job. I can't tell you how many employees got hired and quit within a short period of time because of the owner. If you do decide to apply for a job there and you do get hired he will definitely get everything he can out of you for as little money as he has to pay you. He takes TOTAL advantage of his employees. Don't punish yourself by applying for a job for this slave driver. DON'T DO IT!!! DON'T DO IT!!! DON"T DO IT!! Less

I worked for that guy too!! He sucks!!!

Always took care of himself but held no loyalty to employees - watched it for years - nobody was good enough for his company, just settled on them so he could justify his ways and not giving back to those giving to the company. It was sad, I was disappointed that’s how he turn out after so long. Less
