Pros

For the reps that are successful you can be compensated very well if you are patient to see you money after the summer. You get to travel and live in different places for four months that you wouldn't normally get the opportunity to do so.

Cons

Commission structure is deceiving. It's easy to "give away" your commissions to customers to close a deal. Not a lot of organization in most offices and there isn't much personalized help. They basically take anyone who is breathing to their summer offices and hope that some people figure it out on their own and stick around.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Create a real hiring process. Hire only qualified employees, set quotas, and have a base plus commission compensation package.

    Pros

    Great pay. Work with a lot of great people. Allows those with little work experience to prove themselves in the work place.

    Cons

    Normally will be necessary to relocate for the four to five month period. Long days. Long weeks. Can become redundant.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think you are doing a fa-nominal job. This will be my fifth year with APX and have been very grateful for this opportunity.
