Management is less than competent. Their time in the industry is noted but their management skills are pathetic.

They try to set forced hours on you even though you are a contractor. they even try to have you feel like you have to through the signed contract, but doesn't hold up to law since they cannot force you to work hours unpaid. They threaten to sever your contract if you don't meet the minimum because they know its not worth going to court over for. Hours spend cold calling / training takes up too much time to have a real life if you want to make any standard income that you could make at a simple 9-5.

Answered

Dealing with the blood in the water mentality that no upper management controlled how the clients were given to trainers. Where everyone works on taking each others clients and constantly running into situations where multiple trainers cold call the same person. Creating an embarrassing situation where you look extremely miss managed and unprofessional. Not to mention massive amount of wasted time.
