    I worked at American Marketing and Publishing full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    There are so many talented and wonerful people that work for this HomePages/American Marketing and Publishing.

    Cons

    As anyone in Sales knows, a positive attitude is required to succeed and move past objections and rejections. So no complaining is the mentality in sales. However this job is not a typical sales job and unless your unemployed, fresh out of school, or don't require a substantial income do not do it!!! I wish I had listened to the reviews I read. They were accurate.

    The print products you are selling and are the bread and butter of your pay check are simply not believed in by clients and potential clients. No one wants the print. You will often go into a Canvas (town you are working in) following several other reps that were in the town and unsuccessful. Someone was in there before you and renewed all of the decent renewals or special placements, therefore you will not make your revenue goals, account goals, or your threshold for the month. Needless to say reaching commissionable numbers is rare, and that is across the board in this company. Now you will hear about the less than 1% that are making a living but they are only succeeding because they make there own rules and go into other towns that are out of their canvas to sell, or chase the protected accounts that have had the rep that originally sold them quit. As a Rep you have a $10,000 threshold to reach each month before you will make any commission. You will be dinged (taken out of your salary) $100 a month for not reaching 6 new accounts a month. You will be dinged $100 a month for not reaching the digital quota, and last but not least you will be dinged up to $350 a month for not having a high enough POS (money collected at the time of the sale).

    You will be tracked via a mandatory GPS program installed on your phone, or if they supply you with a phone. You are not allow to leave the borders of your prospective towns. This is a severe handicap in selling in the often extremely small towns you will be working in. You will be spending hours of your personal time after work researching leads, entering information in their CRM program, a half hour a day on the morning call before you even start work, listening to your voice mails, drive beyond the 45 miles they tell you to get to your canvas, you will drive in circles all day and spend $25-$40 a day in gas, receive emails all weekend long and late into the evenings, and the text thread you must be on never stops not even on the weekend.. They will tell you about the 3 people making great money but beware they are typically in expansion towns and living off of the protected accounts that have had the rep leave. In all honesty there are literally about 3-4 people making a good living there as a sales rep.

    I can honestly tell you I was lied to when I was given the details about the position. They are great at putting a creative spin on the facts.

    They will give you pep talks and tell you your great just keep getting new, and leave you floundering until you dig your way out of the ridiculous goals for your town. If you stick it out you will feel great that you did dig your way out for about 5 days, even though you made almost no commission. What happens is your living on the hope that the next town your staffed in will be better. It will not be, it will be the same thing all over again but driving farther, spending more in gas, and fewer renewals and even fewer new prospects for new.

    THE BOTTOM LINE IS THIS IS A $25,000-$30,000 AT THE MOST. You will use so much gas and beat your car up for $25,000 a year.
