    Pros

    Good pay when economy was strong. As long as I made my quotas, they left me alone without micromanagement. Freedom to plan my day as I saw fit. My immediate supervisors and managers were great!

    Cons

    Industry in decline. When sales got thin, micromanagement set in. Company rolled out a new product extremely often just to see if something new would sell, realizing that the yellow pages sector was doomed.

    Advice to Management

    Choose a strategy and stay with it. Back your message up in the communities you want to sell in with area marketing and branding. During the 7 years I worked for yellowbook, there was zero local marketing to support sales.

    Interview

    Recruiter contacted me a few minutes after starting to fill out an application. Scheduled an interview within two weeks, received a call that I was hired about a week later. Overall, very casual/conversational interview.
