    I worked at Main Street Hub full-time

    Pros

    - coffee bar - snacks - flexible work space - huge office space

    Cons

    - low pay - high stress - employees not valued - no room for advancement - lack of flexibility since GoDaddy took over - not treated like adults

    Advice to Management

    Go back to the way things were before GoDaddy and allow employees flexibility and give them respect. Bring back the tier system.

    Pros

    Lots of opportunity to grow

    Cons

    Clientele can be very emotional and hard to get a hold of on a set schedule. Small business owners have random schedules.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. Try to train leadership to develop more than apply direct help.

    Pros

    This is a great place to learn a fair amount and grow some thick skin in the wake of a collapsing office structure. View it as nothing more than a stepping stone to more palpable yet lateral jobs in sales that require experience. If this is your first sales job, you will learn a lot about the transactional process and even become inspired by the businesses you work with. The management is young and full of energy, and...

    Cons

    Extremely maniacal expectations. Your work hours are 8:30-12, 1-5:30, and during those hours, you are expected to only be dialing, which the occasional (quarterly?) one on one coaching session with your manager. There is excessive amounts of pressure from management, with virtually no contact to upper level management beyond the sales floor. They absolutely abuse the ambition of their reps (this is no fault of the senior...

    Advice to Management

    Stop being so half in, half out. If this is a professional job with insane expectations, stop dignifying the foolishness of unqualified and toxic employees. Stop allowing the company to exploit the talent of tenured reps by burning them out. Hire more people on the accounts and product side so we can actually perform on what we promise. Stop viewing employees on the grand scheme as replaceable. STOP PROMOTING UNQUALIFIED...

      Pros

      They incentive you with electronics

      Cons

      Cold calling center - 100+ calls everyday or you're expected to stay late Micromanaging - one time a manager threatened to duct tape a person to a chair because they were using the restroom too much In no later then 8 am, lunch strictly 12-1 (can't do 12:30-1:30), leave no earlier then 5:30 or they give you looks

      Advice to Management

      Encourage - don't threaten employees

        I worked at Main Street Hub full-time for more than 3 years

        Pros

        Good people to work with Decent office downtown Barista - but who doesn’t have a barista now? They do provide jobs for people who are unhireable anywhere else.

        Cons

        ITS A TRAP! You cold call all day long. The product isn’t great and has a horrible retention rate. The position doesn’t qualify you for anything besides getting back on the phone at another company. They promote anyone who will shut up and stay along for the ride. You can’t be one minute late back from lunch or in the morning. Micro management for your entire tenure. Small deal size ~$500. $20,000 base. Low morale...

        Advice to Management

        Please don’t leave a cheesy comment that’s recycled around the rest of the bad reviews. You’ll notice that the way these comments are responded to are cut, copied and pasted from past responses. Just acknowledge that the company was $100,000,000 was in debt before they closed in a fire sale to GoDaddy and you would rather sell off and keep hiring 60 reps a month to keep up with everyone that quits or is fired.

        I worked at Main Street Hub full-time for less than a year

        Pros

        - Virtuosic mission - Use of technology to aid sales team

        Cons

        - Very poor management - Product is a great idea but is poorly executed - Virtually no meaningful HR support - Major culture issues - In a career in sales spanning over 20 years, this is the only job I had where I couldn’t sell. The “frat bro” culture that was allowed to permeate was distracting at least, and fully hostile at its worst.

        Advice to Management

        Watch out who your managers are. A positive workplace culture is essential to positive sales metrics
