I worked at America's Job Network

Pros

No cap to what you can earn because it is all commission. You feel like you are helping people. The benefit is the client is analyzed like any other product and scrubbed down to the selling points for the hiring employer to see. Most people can not see that in thier own shoes.

Cons

It all commission and a very long sales cycle. Takes a very unique person to succeed and only a handful can do it. The problem is clients pay the company an average of $5500 to $7500 to have all thier marketing materials prepared which does include resumes and all cover letters. The problem is regardless of how clear it is made to the client, they still expect the company is going ot get them a job when the company is giving the best preparation for a job search money can buy. In the end, a commission is lost because they want thier money back months and months later.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Take care of your sales people is rule number one. When I did my job but the delievery wasn't, the salesmen was financially penalized instead of the delivery person.

    Pros

    Unlimited income potential, no micromanagement. Reasonably flexible scheduling. Decent benefits.

    Cons

    High staff turnover with an expectation of a high failure rate, no guarantee of any income, no middle management with any influence. Arbitrary decisions on converting employees from 1099 to W-2. No human resources functions. Family-owned and run like a kingdom with kings and princes that do as the king says without questioning or correction. Favoritism runs rampant, but favorites can become slugs literally overnight. Constant change for the sake of change without any planning. Over 85% of the workforce is paid on straight commission, whether in sales, sales management or client delivery services. Highly volatile and disrespected industry. Very difficult, high-cost intangible service sale.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Open up communications. Risk giving commissioned employees a draw to survive on until they become successful. Don't change products every week or month. Stop changing the business name. Do the right things.

    Pros

    Most effective service, proven record of success; unique system. Worth the cost an/or effort;
    AJN helps prepare job hunting prospects increase their job hunting effectiveness at no cost - WHERE ELSE CAN AN UNEMPLOYED AMERICAN GET SUCH A SERVICE?

    The Professional fees may appear to be high, yet when quoted within the context of a 3-6 month professional support effort coupled with successful results - the paid fee almost fades into insignificance.

    NOTICE INTERNET COMPLAINTS AND NEGATIVE COMMENTS DO NOT COME FROM CLIENTS. SUCH COMMENTS COME FROM OTHERS WITH VARIOUS MOTIVATIONS.

    Cons

    A long term learning, self improvement and mentoring process. The individuals who can sustain a constant, changing learning climate will be successful.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Thank you for such a great opportunity - and for such continued support in light of my long term learning curve. Most companies would not allow such a long term process for employees while waiting for them to make a contribution.
