    It was great at 1st but it is really hard to get sales unless you have been there a long time.

    I worked at CBT Direct full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    If you are good at cold call sales this is a great job if you can wait for commission and keep making sales.

    Cons

    It is a commission based job and even if you sell to a big company and your cut is $30,000.00 which was a 1/3 of the total commission and you don't any sales for a week after that you get let go and your $30,000.00 omission goes to the company's pocket!

    I worked at CBT Direct full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    It was air conditioned... It had an elevator that worked 75 % of the time... Insurance at full cost +...

    Cons

    Everything... I'm pretty sure this is what slavery was like... The "owners" make money and you end up either owing them money or "borrowing" minimum wage... While this is happening you are being yelled at constantly... You are required to endure a roll call similar to a prison every morning and they breed a resistance is futile enviroment....

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Retire !!!!

    Sales can be aggressive and income-rewarding, but deceit and questionable ethics are not enough of a reason to work here

    I worked at CBT Direct

    Pros

    You can make as money as you want....it is all commission work--no base. Effort is rewarded with the paycheck....altruistic rewards, though--not so much.

    Cons

    Bad reputation, uncomfortable with the high pressure selling techniques and questionable ethics. Want to make money, but need to sleep at night.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The extraordinary attention paid to top producers should be given to the support staff as well---tech, sales managers, enrollment, office, etc......they are part of the machine.
    Also, the goal of higher profit does not justify questionable ethical behavior.
