    Pros

    Great benefits including 401k, Dental, Medical, Visual, & Life insurance .
    Pay is above average.
    Opportunity to move up with merger with MFRM.
    Great leaders and training, initial training is almost 2 months long.

    Cons

    Weekends mandatory.
    Commission doesn't start until after 2 months of training/ supervised selling.
    ESOP Program lost with merger.

    Advice to Management

    Don't lose Dales vision with the merger although he's still heavily involved in the company. It seems they are slowly taking away important things.

    Interview

    Phone interview to make sure you're willing to work the long hours and to weed out complete idiots, then a first interview at the San Leandro HQ, then a final interview. Nothing out of the ordinary. While you're waiting for your interview they seat you in this little corner with a TV playing some company values video.

    Interview Questions

    • You know, the whole "sell me this pen" thing. That was my first time getting the question in an interview. I didn't think I nailed it, but I got the job   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    No negotiation from what I could tell.
