    Former Employee - Account Manager in Austin, TX
    Former Employee - Account Manager in Austin, TX

    I worked at 512 Solutions full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    -Pay is better than McDonalds, if you are a good salesman
    -Offers minimal, contribution (you pay) healthcare after 3 months
    -Training is sufficient, depending on who is training you.
    -Better than cold calling or door to door sales

    Cons

    -You will be selling DirecTV in Walmart, all day everyday.
    -Will literally hire anyone who can pass a background check. If you make it to your second interview you will be hired. These are salesmen they are trying to sell you on the second interview at chick-fil-a (which they will not pay for, if you are such a good catch why are they not bothering to invest $5 in you by the second interview). Look for basic sales techniques during your interview i.e. indifference, taking control, not being salesy, etc. This is what you can expect to be taught to sell.
    -If you cannot close your first sale by the end of day 5 prepared to be let go.
    -Work week is Thursday thru Monday 11am-9pm (you will be encouraged to get in at 10am and stay as late as 11pm to make a sale). Say goodbye to your nights and weekends.
    -No holidays (Walmart is busiest then), vacation days, personal days, sick days (unpaid and require a doctors note), etc
    -Required to come into the office everyday before heading out to "the field" (i.e. walmart), to hear sales techniques, practice pitch and motivational from 11am to 12:30pm. Flat out waste of time, which you are not paid for.
    -You will begin to notice everyone who gets "promoted" receives no pay increase, only additional time consuming tedious responsibilities.
    -Commission only payment. Base pay is consider supplemental and must be repaid
    -Claims that Account Mangers make around 30k a year. This is a flat out lie. Account managers make 15-20k.
    -You will use your own personal vehicle a LOT and will not be reimbursed. Some locations are over an hour away (Temple, Lagrange, Marble Falls, etc)
    -Makes you go on BS business trips to Waco, San Antonio and Dallas. Where YOU PAY for gas, food, hotel (better be prepared to share a bed) or local managers couch.
    -Encouraged to mislead, not lie, to make sales.
    -Everyone likes to talk about the big picture and expansion, when the reality of the situation is 95% of reps don't make it a year with the company and only a fraction of a percent make it to branch manager, ownership. Ask about turnover rates. Remember good companies invest in good people, bad companies leach the life out their employees and view employees as expendable commodities.
    -Even if you make it to branch manager (i.e. ownership) more offices close within 2 years than stay open.
    -Claims owner make a fortune in sales and overrides. If you believe this boy do I have some prime waterfront real estate to sell you.
    -No realistic career path
    -Cult like environment, everyone in the office drinks the coolaid

    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
