    Best decision I made since moving to Austin

    Account Manager (Current Employee) Austin, TX

    ProsThey give you real life skills and experience that you can take anywhere and apply to future endeavors. They provide an exciting and fresh environment where you're constantly learning everyday. The staff is extremely friendly and it's obvious that they genuinely care about others growth.

    ConsThe hours can be long and I worked most weekends, so I struggled with a work/life balance initially.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMy advice for management would be to continue instilling the values of hard work and setting the example.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Fun, high energy work environment!

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsI have been a full time employee of The Austin Focus for 8 months. I appreciate the fast-paced environment and supportive atmosphere. My co-workers are all highly motivated and I always come to work with a smile on my face. Management is quick to recognize hard work with praise and bonuses.

    ConsThe office recently relocated which has increased my commute.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTake me on the company R&R trip to Jamaica this year!

    DONT!!!!

    Sales Representative (Former Employee) Austin, TX

    ProsThey do provide a positive environment for employees in the AM meeting and people are nice.

    Cons-You work 8:30 - 9 PM at times...LONG HOURS/DAYS!

    -TERRIBLE PAY...You work your butt off for nearly nothing.

    -Your job is to stand in a Sam's club all day and try to sell people the things like pizza, hair straighteners, and pirogues. Basically based on 100% commission.

    ***This is by far the worst idea I have ever attempted...please don't bother with this company***

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    The company is great if you like to work long hours, drive a lot, and sell products that are not that great.

    Marketing Associate (Current Employee) Austin, TX

    ProsNice co-workers, opportunities to network (with only people in the company), okay training.

    ConsLong hours, traveling far, work in a Sam's like a demo person, company meeting in the morning, every morning, even when you're off

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Don't Bother with this 100% commission Job!!

    Account Manager (Former Employee) Austin, TX

    ProsThey will hire anyone, mostly on the spot after their 2 part interview process.

    ConsThis company is a sales company that pays 100% commission but promises you a FAKE hourly guarantee. I worked at Austin Focus and Infinity One Marketing for several months. (The are the same company.) They change their name every few months to get new recruits. We started out selling Speakers in Sam's Club and then switched to Whip it. These are not Fortune 500 companies.If you like pushing products on people trying to buy groceries then this is the job for you. Don't believe the story of all the Managers and Business owners they create. The last manager quit because they were expecting her to work 90 hours a week. My last complaint is they expect you to drive to Waco and San Antonio every week. I ate up my whole $350 check in gas!!

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe upfront with your applicants about the pay and the "Benefits"

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
