    Former Employee - Inside Sales Representative in Horsham, PA

    I worked at LRP Publications full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Casual attire. Flexible hours. Supportive mid to senior level sales colleagues who will understand you when you realize how poorly the department is run. Many sales reps come with undergraduate and graduate degrees with years of business, sales and life experience. Very little turnover in every other department but telesales. The Magazine department has sales but you never see turnover. They are happy and content in their position. Every other department in the Horsham, PA office seems to be managed with efficiency and a positive culture. If you choose this company make sure the department is not telesales in the Education and Federal Department.

    Cons

    For those considering the telesales/inside sales position with this company in Florida or Pennsylvania in Education or Federal sales please know that these negative reviews are not from disgruntled employees. They are from disappointed and disillusioned employees who were lied to in the interview process and sold a bill of goods. No one is looking for the perfect company. We are smart enough to know that perfect does not exist. It is interesting that it has been stated we were hired based on what we sold the company: "drive, determination, and a solid work ethic." Yet, we chose this company over other offers on what you "sold" us; a potential for a high income and good living for our families. If we are not what we say we are on paper and in 2 interviews then maybe your hiring team has failed you. Perhaps it is good and ethical companies that are few and far between. Turn over is great because the department insists on unreachable goals that only a small percentage achieve on a monthly basis due to disproportionately splitting the territory in Education sales. The Federal government has a cycle of spending that is not taken into consideration. So the sales people suffer with a commission plan that continues to drop each quarter. In Education sales you will have the same quota as the TWO reps in Pennsylvania with the most territory and the top 500 districts including your districts. We understand that hard work yields great reward. But at LRP you will soon learn that hard work yields little return and they play to their two favorites in Education sales in the Horsham, PA office. Once hired is when you see that the commission structure comprises pages of legalese that will continue to lower your commission percentage until the vast majority make 4%. It will be one of the most complicated commission structures you will ever read that will cater to the wallet of the owner. The kicker is he makes his money on the renewals of your sales. You will not see a dime. And if that is not greed enough; 96% of your initial sales in most cases will go to him. Management has the best jobs due to lack of accountability. Their teams continue to turn over without the root of the problem ever being addressed or fixed. And REALLY are we being judged for good camaraderie with our fellow colleagues when we dine together on our unpaid lunch hour?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    DO SOMETHING. Stop being on the internet or phones looking at dogs to rescue. We walk by your cubicles and see you online and your cell phone, The joke is the lowest paid people (sales) with the high quota and turn over has the least respect while the managers, trainers and sales administrative people shop online, look at rescue dogs, and spend their day talking about the latest television shows and the "drama" of their lives.
