    Pros

    Very flexible schedule.
    Work from home.
    Fast commission payouts.

    Cons

    Commission only.
    They only get you about half of the appointments they claim you will have. The other half the owner or contact will not even be there. I think business owners hate to talk about something they don't understand.

    Advice to Management

    A base salary, better training on products and services, better preset appointments.

    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.

    Pros

    Compensation is really good plus the commission is nice. I am one of the senior Sales Manager which allows me to teach New Mangers and New Sales rep the trade of this business. One of the big pros is that you get what you put into this job so hard work shows on you weekly check and its also really nice being paid weekly.

    Cons

    The only Con I have is that you have to wake up before the roosters in the morning haha :) but once you are in the office we have such a good time that all goes away.

    Advice to Management

    I have no issues with how things are done with my company. LOVE APPSTAR!!! TAKES REALLY GOOD CARE OF ME THAT ALLOWS ME TO TAKE REALLY GOOD CARE OF MY FAMILY.

  11. 4 1/2 years with Appstar and it's been a good solid company!

    Pros

    Lot's of flexibility, great support and opportunity to make a lot of money but you have to be willing to work for it. What you put in you get out! Work closely with management in the beginning but after you show you can do the job you have a ton of freedom.

    Cons

    Lot's of rejection and have to be thick skinned. Competitive industry with too many other bad companies that make the business owners leery of all companies.

    Advice to Management

    I would consider more advertising to drive more customers to reach out to the company!
