    I have been working at Signpost full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    -Culture: Everyone I work with has become my good friend; some of my coworkers I now consider best friends. We are all so positive and supportive of one another, and it's great working some place where we both compete against each other and cheer on each other's successes. Also the happy hours are super fun!
    -Career growth: The fact that you have the potential to raise your base by 10K in less than a year is huge, and with it the opportunity to help train and support new hires is huge. And the fact that the company is growing so quickly means that opportunities for greater management roles are there for those who work hard and want to make it happen for themselves!
    -Product: For so many small businesses, Signpost really does help boost their online visibility and have a dramatic impact on their remarketing and retention. I love that I don't feel like a sleazy salesperson when I'm pitching people and getting people signed up. I know that I'm helping small businesses do something good for their business that they wouldn't or couldn't have done themselves.
    -Leadership: I think the management team does a really good job of taking and implementing feedback, to the best of their abilities. Compared to other places I have worked, my opinion and ideas are valued tremendously here; that's part of what makes Signpost such a great place to work

    Cons

    -Lack of diversity!!! Especially in leadership positions, with regard to both race and gender. We're in the middle of freaking Texas, how is the office almost all white people?
    -Low base means that slow months take a big hit to your paycheck
    -Cold calling and being pushy on the phone is not for everyone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -Take a more pro-active approach to recruiting a more diverse team (e.g. specifically reaching out to networking groups for people of color, women in business,etc). Even if you're not looking at it from a social justice standpoint, having a sales and leadership team that more closely reflects the shifting demographics of the US can only have a positive impact on the number of business owners we connect with, and improve our understanding of businesses' differing needs.
    -Set performance and workplace decorum expectations more clearly to newer hires to ensure that the culture remains fun, but still highly productive.
    -Explore outside resources for additional sales training materials.

    Sales Representative Interview

    Interview Details

    Wow. What can I say about this interview process? Well for starters, I had a very easy phone interview. I applied for the position online and then within 2 hours I received a phone call from them. I then had an in-person interview at their "office" which was really intense. I was interviewed by three different people and then sat down with one of their sales representatives to discuss the position. I was asked to come back for the final interview but I had to first prepare a PowerPoint about Signpost products which I had to sell to the manager. They told me they would contact me later that day about whether I got the position but they never contacted me. This company is EXTREMELY unprofessional. After going through three interviews and giving a PowerPoint presentation, the least they could do is call me.
