    Pros

    -Work from home -Help and work with a lot of students, parents and families -Great upper management -You are in control of your own success -Independent work -100% sales I can't say enough positive things about this company and I'm still waiting to figure out what the catch is! Yes, there are some cons and read below but the positives outweigh the negatives for sure. Everyone takes their job very seriously and they want to do a great job. You have a goal every month that is tied to a bonus and your goal is very realistic. I love that the company offers help in so many different academic areas and test prep. All of the leads that come in are warm and hot. They reached out to us first and all marketing is done online. The big test prep companies WANT this model and VT has it down pat. Also, the CEO and upper management are open to suggestions and ideas and the company is still growing at a fast pace. We have a lot of exciting things coming and I can't wait to be a part of it!

    Cons

    -Sales directors work 45 hours a week -You will need to work at least one weekend if not two -Slow in the Summer but that is to be expected -Independent work (if you don't like that) -Pay is a little lower than expected but the bonus program makes up for that None of the above really matters to me but I can see how others may not like it.

    Advice to Management

    -Keep up the great work! -I'm glad we have a sales call on Monday so we can see each other

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Varsity Tutors.

    Interview

    I had an interview with the recruiter, VP of the company and the CEO. It took a couple of weeks and I told them that I had another job offer which came up and they sped the process up a bit more for me. So glad I turned down that other job!

    Interview Questions

    • Basically asked about my sales background. Did I have more 1 call or 2 call sales. I've worked from home before so that wasn't an issue.   Answer Question
