    I have been working at Budgetext

    Pros

    Exciting, you get around and meet a lot of people. This is a very competitive industry, so there can be a lot of dissapointments but also alot of rewards. If you work your territory, you can make a lot of money. You will work hard at times, but there are down times and you can build your relationships amongst your schools during those times. It can be fast paced and it is always changing. I really like the positive environment of the company and it is very forward thinking. You have an opportunity to grow as much as you like.

    Cons

    Away from home especially during busy spring/summer season.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Budgetext in September 2007.

    Interview Details

    First you submit a resume through various job sites. Then you get a call and have an interview. Then you have to take a 5-hour personality test. If that goes well, then you submit an application and credit/background check. Then you get the second interview. For me, it was a week and a half later I got an offer letter.
