    I have been working at Better Business Bureaus

    Pros

    Potential for very high pay, great mission, very strong name recognition when going into a call. I have worked for the BBB for 7 years as a 100% commission sales person, and can easily clear 50-60k a year in my sleep. It is a tough job, but I see so many awful reviews, I had to step in. Maybe my office is the exception, but the BBB has grown me as a person and set the stage for me to make $100k+ with a new company. The experience gained all these years cold calling and being able to throw that on a resume made me an instant hot target for companies. Use the BBB as a great stepping stone to a high caliber sales position.

    And to the ones that say the BBB will accredit anyone that pays.... YEAH RIGHT. Tell that to my application for $6000 that got denied because they would not remove the line "We provide the best mortgage rates in the USA". Yeah, they told the company to walk with their $6k. I spend a lot of time selling companies on just MAKING WEBSITE CHANGES. Come sit in my seat and tell me the BBB takes money for Accredited Status and A+ ratings.

    Cons

    The 100% commission (for some), but hey, a REAL sales person wants that. Not evolving with the times. Hurt reputation because of Los Angeles BBB office.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your management positions better. Real talent should be paid accordingly.

    Received an offer for an interview through email after handing in my resume. The interview took 30 minutes and was made very comfortable by the staff member. I was brought into the meeting room and asked a few questions about myself and how to I'd address situations.
