    Pros

    AppStar gives back as much as you put in, work hard and they will take care of you. Boss' door is always open, owner's door too

    Cons

    It's a tough industry- cut throat and crowded.

    Advice to Management

    Good customer service might cost a little money but small gestures can make (or break) long term relationships.

    Pros

    Sales management assist you on the phone to help you close the deal

    Cons

    Very short and compact online training. Expenses of gas and calls are on you, and you spend a lot, Very pushy, leads are not usually very good, so you better work with your own

    Advice to Management

    Take a little more time on training. Give newbies at least for gas and phone calls

    Pros

    They give you a great opportunity to generate a very good salary,they treat you like you are apart of the family, they value who you are and the work ethic you have and they take very good care of you in general.

    Cons

    There are no cons in my opinion because everything about this job is who I am. I am a go getter and if you have that instinct inside of you this job can be very rewarding. If you are lazy and expect everything handed to you this job is not for you.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what is currently being done!

    Pros

    Great pay. Great Hours. Great people. Very comfortable and fun work environment.

    Cons

    competitive business. A lot of business owners have been burned by other companies and it makes it hard for them to trust anyone for a change.

    Advice to Management

    advertising can go a long way. referrals are great, but a lot of merchants are visual, if the name sounds familiar, it is already a plus.
