    Pros

    Opportunity to make a lot of money if you can hold out an are liked. Hope that you do good right away and you might be able to climb a little bit.

    Cons

    Stress Stress Stress. Repetition. Every day goals increase and leads do not. The rich get richer and the poor get poorer. Spend a lot of time duping old folks into buying overpriced coins.

    Advice to Management

    Stop lying to customers and employees. Work harder to be understanding to needs of customers. Do not position coins as investments if you are not allowed to do so.

    Pros

    They have great training and it is ongoing. The hours are not bad. Benefits are good with quick PTO.

    Cons

    The leads you get are past customers who have bought before but most of them have only bought cheap coins. The one's who have spent good money have been dropped by other salespeople for a reason. The managers are on you very heavy about selling more and more. The coins they start you with are in the $5 to 6,000 range !!!!!

    Advice to Management

    Do not flood the floor and work with the people you have-give them time to improve and if they do keep them. Do not bee so quick to force them out, maybe a month more than the current 3 month period.

    Pros

    $50,000 salary for first year Used to have food benefits but now they suck

    Cons

    Lazy manager, head of company constantly lies to you, however good of a job you do it's never good enough, when you earn a contest you might not actually get to participate because the next day/week might not be good enough Even if your numbers are above average, the leads suck but still holds you accountable for unattainable sales goals I didn't work in the twin cities either so don't let them tell you that if your about to work in one of the satellite offices

    Advice to Management

    Actually be a manager, don't sit at your desk looking at your computer screen with your feet up yelling to do more while the sales people are working their butts off not getting a hold of anybody

    Pros

    The starting salary is more than fair and the fellow sales reps are very friendly and fun to be around. The company also understands the importance of free time and the PTO and the extra days that they give you off is very nice. The training is also top notch. .

    Cons

    The worst part about this job is the atmosphere. you are crammed into tiny cubicles and can hear every other sales rep trying to close a sale. The turnover rate is absurdly high and the manager play favorites with the best of em.

    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 Management

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

    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 Management

    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.


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

    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 Management

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