    I worked at Mckenzie Holland full-time

    Pros

    The people who I worked with for the period I was there were incredibly influential on my knowledge of business and start ups, I have never really had that kind of mentorship before in my life.

    Cons

    We worked pretty long hours compared to what I am used to but the information I got was worth it

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good mentorship!

    Pros

    Office looks great, full of energetic people, very close walk to central station

    Cons

    I walked out at start of field trip '2nd interview' $0 base, 100% commission pay, they will avoid that subject too! Door to door sales after using public transport.

    Advice to Management

    Be honnest, dont waste people's time. Dont falsely advertise on seek what you cant deliver.

    I have been working at Mckenzie Holland full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Personal and professional growth is encouraged with regular clinics and one-on-one mentoring. Help is always available, you only have to ask. So many of the skills learnt in this role carry over into every day life. It is up to each person how far they want to go and how quickly. It's a great place to start to gain experience for whatever you do in the future, in this business or the next. I've been lucky enough to go on business trips around Victoria and NSW which keeps it exciting. I also enjoy working in a team of like-minded people who are fun and motivated.

    Cons

    Sometimes the travel arrangements are a bit messy so we end up wasting time.
    We aren't allowed to make too much noise because there are other offices nearby. In a young and fun environment this is fairly challenging.

    Advice to Management

    Time for a bigger office. I think we have almost outgrown this one.

    I worked at Mckenzie Holland full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Extremely positive work environment. Everyone was so welcoming, and they helped you to do well if even I was struggling with something (no negative nancys)
    - Progression opportunity. I've worked in hospitality and education before and the progression opportunity was a big drawcard for me, especially given my only real sales experience was in high school at the cafeteria!
    - It's helped a lot with my general confidence when talking to people outside of work and in my day to day life

    Cons

    - Parking was limited and a battle. Ended up using underground parking which was $10-12 a day.
    - Didn't know I need to dress so formal! I had never worn a suit before so had to go and buy a couple of them

    Advice to Management

    The morning music was always dance music - can't we get some heavy rock?

    Pros

    For this kind of work the earning potential is huge. The manager is open to ideas and rewards for being innovative, which in turn enhances personal development and the need to succeed. The staff seem really ambitious and fun which leads to a really social hard working environment. The company has an open door policy which enables new starters to get on and move up he ladder.

    Cons

    It is long hours, but if you work hard you are rewarded well and I have been able to travel which has been fun. I wish you didn't have to wear a suit though ! The office is in he City centre with no parking which I find costly.

    Advice to Management

    Let us have more chill down days and subsidise parking or get a car park

    Pros

    Great motivational speakers, encouraging and helpful. Great potential for earning good salary and quite a sociable company. Makes you want to be more ambitious to achieve more for self satisfaction and appreciation

    Cons

    Can be a bit repetitive, long hours and not always the best journeys to and from work. The lack of on site parking can be an issue and needs to be addressed. Need to put the hours in to achieve results, when you are tired you don't feel like it.

    Advice to Management

    Probably need to reword the job description as not clear what you are signing up for, more training on good sells techniques. More thought on wording of adverts

    I worked at Mckenzie Holland full-time

    Pros

    I enjoyed working at Mckenzie because it was a really social environment with a lot of support despite it being hard work. They foster entrepreneurial mind-sets which is exciting to see from a company.

    Cons

    Sometimes the atmosphere is a bit cheesy but this is to creative a positive environment.

    Advice to Management

    The business trips to other cities and locations are often 5+ days which is hard for me and my children.
