I have been working at International Sports Management full-time (more than 8 years)Pros
> I genuinely like everyone I work with. It is a fun atmosphere where talking about sports is something we do each and every day.
> Generous commission scale. I have worked at other sales jobs where the rate of commission paid is much lower.
> Vacation is great during the holidays, longer than what you got off when you were in school, and it's paid.
> I get to be home for dinner with my wife every night during the week, and have every weekend off. Having a set work schedule is nice.
> Plenty of incentives for producing opportunities, including meals, electronics and sports tickets.
> You will learn a lot about the way many different businesses are run by talking to their high level executives on a daily bases.Cons
> It can be challenging starting out to get DM's on the phone as it takes a while to get used to the system, but when you get the system down you will be highly rewarded once opportunities start to close.
> Making 150 plus calls per day is not for everyone.
> Training can be a bit overwhelming due to lots of new information, but trust the system that they teach you, it works.Advice to ManagementAdvice
> Maybe touch up training the first few weeks, training refreshers for new hires the first month.RecommendsPositive OutlookApproves of CEO

I applied online. The process took 5 days – interviewed at International Sports Management.Interview Details
Submitted resume through Monster.com, one of the Sales Managers called to discuss the position. Initial phone call lasted about 15-20 minutes, going through brief background of the company, but more importantly, they wanted to discuss my background and what I was looking for. They made no bones about it, letting me know this is a sales position, and that I should be looking for that. They scheduled me for a 1st interview in the office, which was 2 days later. I met with that same Sales Manager, he went through the company, the position (150+ calls each day, moderate research on the side, full benefits, base salary that is not a draw, and uncapped commissions), what they were looking for in terms of this position (both short and long-term) and then had a discussion about my background and skills. Once completed, over the next 48-72 hours (I don't remember exactly) they proceeded to check in with some of my references and a 2nd interview (in-person) was set with the VP. The entire process was very open, which makes sense since they want to be as transparent as possible about the position and the opportunity.Interview Questions

- I didn't have a lot of leadership experience leading up to my interview, so describing a situation in which I had to overcome some sort of diversity or problem in a short amount of time, while staying determined and leading a group to do the same was more personal for me than professional.
