    Poor Commissions at Quota, Tracked Hourly via Phone, No Health Benefits

    I have been working at Sales Partnerships full-time

    Pros

    It may sound like sour grapes, but their aren't many. I have been very successful with SPI, but the situation has deteriorated rapidly in the last year. You will receive a base salary, and commissions (albeit meager). This is an adequate introduction to outside sales for recent college grads while they are still looking for a more promising, and permanent career.

    Cons

    - No medical benefits
    - Commissions for commercial energy are woeful. At quota, best case scenario $600 under current client agreement.
    - Unsatisfactory auto allowance
    - Tracked hourly on your company phone
    - Accountable to a daily quota
    - Director has never actively been accountable for a quota, or managed a territory
    - Amount of pressure to perform is not justified by compensation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sales Director lacks comprehensive understanding of energy market.

    My advice for the energy program would be, instead of W2 employees, use independent contractors. This would eliminate overhead on salaries and tracking technology.

    Salaries should be commensurate with current COL in different markets, and reflective of experience in industry.

    This review is flatly untrue. We offer medical benefits - perhaps the rep in question was referring to switching to a new provider but, like most companies, we switch from provider to provider every ... More

    I have been working at Sales Partnerships full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Work independent, with unlimited commissions.

    Cons

    Only pay once a month, small travel expense no way near what it will cost you. High turnover, poor training

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get organized and take care of your employees.

    Pay is broken into mid-month and end of month. Travel allowances vary from program to program - the more travel that is expected, the higher the allowance. Our turnover rates are 1/4 the industry ... More

    I worked at Sales Partnerships

    Pros

    Even though we were tracked by our BB the managers didn't ride along with the reps very often. They just sat in the office and looked on the computer to track us. Lazy, Lazy, Lazy....

    Cons

    Huge turnover of new sale representative. They should give all new reps a learning curve and not fire them 1 week after training.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to be a little bit nicer to your sales representative. Managers are not helpful at all. All they want is to torture you. This place will not last much longer.
