    I worked at Advocate Merchant Solutions full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    They are nice to talk to on the phone and available if you are with a prospect but you won't get paid as advetised (sorry that last part is a con but they needed 20 words to post the Pros).

    Cons

    There is NO $36,000 Base Salary as posted (still is as of this writing, March, 2014) all over Career Builder. It is NOT A BASE SALARY. THERE IS NO BASE SALARY. IF YOU SELL 5 ACCOUNTS you will get your "guaranteed" $1,500 per 2 weeks (but your commissions would exceed that any way so again, NOT A BASE). Also, once in (or maybe when they are trying to recruit you), they will tell you that they pay presentations you give to your prospects. Take it from this honest business professional, you will NOT get paid on them unless THEY decide it is a presentation. I was not paid on at least 5 that I made full presentations to. Sadly it seems AdvoPay is good for merchants but folks, if they lie to their Sales Force, can you really trust them that they will not lie to your prospects or accounts? Not really. My advice is to run, don't walk. Here is more bad news. Because it is 1099, you will NOT get your state department of labor to assist you in holding them accountable to what they falsely advertised. IF THEY USE THE WORDS BASE SALARY, treat them like a BAD USED CAR SALESMAN, it is a lie. Commission ONLY just like the other Merchant companies out there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Say what you mean, mean what you say. Quit lying to under-management or directly to prospective Sales Reps to get them in the door and then "hope and maybe even pray" they don't figure out the truth that there is NO BASE SALARY. Just be honest up front.
