    Make a lot of money, but sometimes feel kind of grimly.

    I worked at Asset Marketing Services full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The initial training,, which is two week, is world class. Leads are in abundance. This is a position that if you can make a lot of money quickly. It is not unheard of to make $100k-$200k in your first year. That is the exception. An average is $80-$100k for a good sales person.

    Cons

    Management, product development, marketing, and any operations based employee seems mostly to have an use against them mentality. There is a resentment in the air due to the extremely vast pay difference. The gold and silver coins are grossly overpriced in comparison to the competition. .

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be honest to the sales people and realize that while the rewards are great the stress is incredibly high.

    Pros

    The coworkers, the food, the activities, flexibility and the early out opportunities on Friday's. Great location, decent hours and excellent benefits.

    Cons

    Rich get richer, poor get poorer (and NOT due to differences in skill levels). Smoke and Mirrors! By the time that you realize that you've become a professional liar who is programmed by professional liars, you've taken advantage of a lot of kind, unsuspecting and usually elderly people. If you like to sleep at night, this isn't the place for you. Incredibly stressful on many levels. No commission on the products that customers really want.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest less in food, outings, etc... and price more attractively.

    I have been working at Asset Marketing Services full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    For the first year you'll make $50k as long as you can prove yourself. You'll get decent leads and some help. If you have a decent job and are just checking to see if the grass is greener, it's not! Don't make the switch unless your certain your done with your other job.

    Cons

    Watch out though! They will let you go at the drop of a hat without warning. Your leads will get worse as time goes on and it gets very demeaning. The manager will demean your talents and you'll find yourself wasting your day calling leads they know don't answer the phone. The manager will tell you that you should put in some extra hours (that you don't get paid for) so you can try and make more contacts or you may be looking at losing your job. The veteran sales reps. keep getting better leads and not working for them while you work your butt off for next to nothing and if the company knows a lead coming in is a good one you won't even have a chance to get it. The veterans just get lazier and fatter and make more money. The good leads just get handed to them while you suffer. Not only that injustice, you'll get treated like a kindergartner by management like your stupid and shouldn't even question stuff if you bring anything up.

    If you have sales experience and talent you will see people with hardly any closing skills put up big numbers because of the client base that's provided to them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit padding the veteran reps. Customer bases because some have little sales talent or even experience but can put up numbers because they have the customers.

    Pros

    They had good food all the time. You worked normal hours from 9-5 monday through friday. Office is big and they have good benefits and the training is two weeks long.

    Cons

    Stressed all the time! Managers are bogus and they favor people. They make you lie to customers just to get a sale. You don't make commision the first year working there. People are clicky and gossip all the time. The job is draining!

    Pros

    They treat their employees well. Also employee criticism is not met with termination.

    Cons

    Rape customers blind. People who invest $100k have about $20k in value. I couldn't sleep at night.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop praying on trusting good people. You have ruined families and don't care.

    Pros

    You can make a lot of money on commission and spiffs most of the items you sell. The location of the facility is centrally located. Business casual work attire. Team meetings quite frequently with great home made food and pastries prepared by one of the Admin staff. Good marketing materials to help you sell, even if alot of them are just creative, made up stories by the Marketing Dept.?

    Cons

    Sales management personnel are more like bullies then managers. They have their favorite sales people and are not afraid to let everyone else know it. The favorites get the best leads, extra perks no one else gets and it is totally unfair business practices. There is also a great deal of nepatism within the company that also creates a lot of negative energy within the sales force. Also, a great deal of the items we are asked to sell are items with made up stories about specific hoards that didn't even exist until a creative Marketing individual created a story from scratch. All calls are recorded and critiqued by management so you have to use the script you are provided even though you know you are deceiving your customers by telling them a "fictional" story to sell a product.. The items sold at this company are way over priced. Knowing this, it always left me with a bad feeling at the end of every day. I felt bad for the customers for having paid such a high premium for their collectible. Everyone needs a job and a paycheck these days so you just do what you must for your family.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Regarding Lead Disbursements: I would have sales people earn the great leads that are currently being given to favorites. Dangle some of these leads like carrots...something that each individual sales person can have access to, based on individual performance. Instead of giving these great leads to top performers, spread the wealth down the hill as well. If the top performers are "that good" give them some leads that are just "okay". If they are that good at sales...they can turn that dog lead into a AKC caliber customer. Give everyone a chance. Also, creating a more positive, cohesive work environment through positve reinforcement, training etc., instead of the demeaning and demoralizing tactics that are currently used. You get a lot more out of people when you offer them Honey as opposed to bitters. Basically, utilize fair business practices equally and fairly to all employees on the sales team!

    Pros

    Great benefits if you make it that long (top notch medical, dental and eye care) and the PTO is good. Some of the coins are impressive.

    Cons

    The place is a dump, very clique like, overpriced gold and silver that they push on the elderly with high pressure. Think of your inheritance going down the drain.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They don't listen anyway so don't waste your time
