Excellent

Sales Representative (Current Employee)
Elizabeth, NJ

I have been working at Cartvertising full-time for more than 5 years

ProsUnlimited Income, flexible schedule. This is the only job I know of where a high school graduate can make more income consistently than someone who went to college for 6 years. I saw a review whereby someone listed a "Con" as having to be "self motivated". You should be self motivated in any job, and in any area in your life. If you are looking to clock in at $10 per hour and just watch time go by, than this is not the job for you. However, if you are looking to make $100,000 + per year, yes it requires some self motivation and discipline. I thank God everyday for this job. I also saw another review where the author said that this shopping cart program is a hard sell. If you are honest with prospective clients by telling them that this is the only product that is literally put in the hands of your potential customers at the busiest place in any community, for 45 minutes to 1 hour, 2-3x per week, week after week, month after month, than it is not a "hard sell". This is exactly what the program is and does. This program is hands down the best advertising any small to medium size business can do. And, it is by far one of the best paying jobs in the industry.

ConsI can't think of any.

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

Upbeat!

Recruiter (Current Employee)
Houston, TX

I have been working at Cartvertising full-time for less than a year

ProsGood balance between work/family
Management is positive and pro-active
Colleagues are supportive and work together well

ConsRecruiting office is small and with the amount of recruiters, it often gets loud and ends up sounding like a telemarketing center, which can be a put off to prospective candidates. Larger space would be nice :)

Advice to Senior ManagementImplement a bonus program!

Pleasant working environment!

Recruiting (Current Employee)
Houston, TX

I have been working at Cartvertising full-time for more than a year

ProsCartvertising is a great company to work for. Great advertising/marketing avenue for Professionals such as Doctors, Attorneys, Realtors, etc. to take advantage of verses a billboard, radio, or TV advertising. Management allows independence so you're allowed to get your creative juices flowing without have someone breathing down your neck. Cartvertsing is a family oriented business, down to earth, and fun type of environment. No one is "uptight" which allows one to be yourself. It's so important to work at a company that feels like second family since you're spending 80% of your time at there. It feels good to tell people you work for a company that represents thousands of grocery chains nationwide. What other company does that? No one. We are the leader in the industry and I am proud to be apart of this organization.

ConsClosed minded, small thinking people who do not see the value of the company. People have no idea the type of money you can make with us. There are sales reps making a quarter to half a million dollars selling our product. It's a shame people can't simply put their mind to something and work hard to make the income they deserve. We are sitting on a gold mine and simply trying to give others the opportunity to have a lucrative income without ever wanting for anything.

Advice to Senior ManagementImplement a 401K plan.

Fantastic income potential, but you have to be willing to work hard.

Outside Sales - Independent Contractor (Current Employee)

I have been working at Cartvertising as a contractor for more than a year

ProsUncapped commission plans, complete schedule flexibility, no boss breathing down my neck, respect of my managers and peers, can build my own book of business, great residual and renewal income.

ConsYou HAVE to be self motivated. juggling life distractions can make it tough, since there's no office or time clock to punch.

Advice to Senior Managementmore chances to plug into the matrix and get energized by other reps and share successes would be good. regular training or team meetings might help.

Deceiving, Expensive, Hard Sell

Territory Sales Representative (Former Employee)

I worked at Cartvertising full-time for less than a year

ProsYou made your own schedule. Good Commission

ConsThe product is a hard sell. Trying to convince someone shoppers actually look at shopping cart advertisements is quite difficult. Any purchaser who understands basic conversion rates(about 3% for ads) would know it is not financially sound to spend $3000 on advertising when a 3% response will not cover the initial "investment" of the advertising campaign.

Companies that do understand this are much larger in scale, have a much higher basket price for their goods( Car dealerships, TV /Electronic Stores, etc) and already advertise on every media stream available( tv, radio, newspaper, billboards, etc) so carts would honestly not be financially sound for them.

The Cost of the advertisements is ABSOLUTELY ABSURD. The ad holders can be purchased on Alibaba for pennies on the dollar. The cost to print the ads is MINIMAL( search online it is NOT expensive) Installation of them is super easy, to be honest the installers have the best gig of all!!

The "ad" designs SUCK.These "ads" are essentially giant business cards..and Mobile business cards are POINTLESS. Anyone who understands adverting knows ads need to be SIMPLE. One picture...a line of text..and a business name..THAT'S IT! NOTHING MORE!

They hire you as a "Territory Sales Representative" but you are really a "Territory Telemarketer"

Telemarketing scripts...do I need to explain more?

No concern for the customers, just pitch to them and take their money.

Advice to Senior ManagementLower prices, fix your reputation!! and respond to online complaints, learn what push/pull and drip marketing are. Your company is not well known, this is a HUGE problem.
