    Current Employee - Outside Sales Representative
    Current Employee - Outside Sales Representative

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

    Pros

    -Outside Sales
    -Most of co-workers are genuine nice people to work with
    -Meeting with SMB owners
    -Selling an truly effective product, the price point is fair and better than most competitors, however the price point is much higher than the competition

    Cons

    -You do everything from prospecting through close
    -You just have to make it happen, set appointments through cold-calling and canvass a lot
    -Unpredictable
    -Looooooong hrs, if you work 8 hrs a day, you won't make it and during the interview the managers make it sound you'll 've a lot of freedom, which is not the case.
    -Daily debrief calls to go over your day with your regions sales team, except Mondays, those calls are repetitive, no one listens and its just a waste of time. They are also late in the day when you just want to unwind and get with your personal life
    -Managers might call you several times during the day to ask about your day, which is repetitive because you have to go over it debrief calls anyways
    -Very negative and stressful if you are not doing well
    -Pour benefits - Health Benefits suck, and they said you are family and will always look out for you but this is not true, the company doesn't offer Short Term/ Long Term Disability and you are totally screwed if you need those
    -Only $230/ month for gas and cell phone, please note: you are using your own car and phone and driving a lot, so the $230 is nothing and the base salary is low
    - Lots right out of college people in management or managers that are older but didn't have experience managing before, so they can be out of line and unprofessional
    -You are also in charge of making marketing material, install the software and train the staff for the accounts you sell. Which takes time away from selling and is very time consuming

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more professional and experienced managers
    Be more upfront about what the job duties really entails during interview process
    Higher base and better benefits

    Doesn't Recommend
    Positive Outlook
    Approves of CEO
