Pros

All the benefits of being Self Employed, but none of the head aches. They've applied the Indoff partner model (Distributorship with no buy in and no equity, split in profits/losses 50-50), and find people with the right attributes to become their partners. You'll receive corporate training in Chicago and then on-going training will be provided. There is an "owners culture" in what you do. There is no typical performance review. You submit weekly numbers with your own assessments on how you can improve. You never stop learning. Great Compensation for those who have an entrepreneurial gene.

Cons

They rarely advertise for these positions. You can receive a phone interview if a current partner has submitted your name and filled out a questionaire about your character and qualifications. This does not guarantee you receive a call. If you will not be called, the referring partner will provide you this news.

If you are one of the fortunate one's to receive this interview and be hired. You will continue your training up to 3 years under a current partner somewhere in the US (you will need to be prepared to go where they offer) The partners are working partners, meaning they will be over an office or offices and you will be "competing" with them in what you produce. It's possible that you can out-produce them and this could land you in an awkward position where you become a threat to that partner. They have final say on every person that works in their territories (good for partners) but this can turn bad for you if they feel your a threat to themselves. If you've worked through the Corporate Partner program, Corporate will then have the option to place you elsewhere, or not.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

More aware of the details. It's more effective and builds trust when you, as the senior management, know the details of a given offer/proposal. This is what is needed to take the Corporate Culture from a A- to an A+. Corporate does have a family culture and they care about their employee's. They are family centered and want this to be your next and last career.

    Pros

    This company is growing rapidly so there is a lot of opportunity to make a difference. New ideas are welcomed and great ideas get a lot of management support. There is definitely an entrepreneurial feeling here, but grounded in business metrics that are reviewed throughout the day. Big emphasis on training and supporting best practices for the field. HQ is in a LEED-certified building near the forest preserve and great shopping. Friendly staff and ongoing birthday celebrations keep things fun.

    Cons

    No public transportation available near the office.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take time to celebrate success along the way.

    Pros

    They bought Jimmy Johns once for the trainees. Also, Accuquest housed us in a Extendastay an hour away from training and didn't provide transportation or gas but to their credit they did give us very accurate directions to find the place. They like to wait until the last second to relocate you and your family which is not a big deal. Their head guy watches you and employees on a close circuit camera. No Joke. Hire you after a quick Skype interview. BIG red flag.
    (they'll ask you to sell a bottle of water in the interview...HA. Promise you a territory when in fact you will work under someone that has more experience and will most likely be promoted before you. But that's ok

    Cons

    None...this job is an incredible opportunity even though management is shady. You will make an incredible amount of money or maybe just $45 to 50k in reality.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Never met a more dishonest bunch. I'm sure you know who you are.
