Advice to Management

Overall, this is a great place to work. I do think that people are in positions just because they have worked for the company for so long, even though they may not be deserving of the position.

    Pros

    The company truly value their employees. The company is privately owned and believe in giving their employees bonuses.

    Cons

    Very conservative culture some of the employees need to lighting up some.

    Advice to Management

    Need to send IT personal for training on a yearly basis.

  2. Great pay, simple products, and no prospecting.

    Pros

    Being a sales person at AFA is not like other sales positions. Because of AFAs unique way of seeing customers, a sales associate will never have to prospect for clients. This means no cold calling! Instead, as a sales associate you travel to different school districts selling products to school district employees who either need to renew or are interested in new products. Super easy, you just have to find a method that works repetitively and sell. You get a Ford Fusion, and after 70,000 miles you get a new one. You can use it for reasonable personal use as well as work. You very rarely have to go to the office! Everything is usually at school districts. Management positions are accessible, but it is almost less stressful and more beneficial financially to remain as a sales person. Have a very good retirement program, although it has lessened over the years.

    Cons

    Selling can get extremely repetitive and needless to say boring. Products do not change very often, and clientele are always going to be school district employees. If you are looking for experience in prospecting, cold-calling, closing "big" business, I would not recommend this company.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to do a better job of making better relationships with school district leaders. If we do not have good relationships with them then we cannot sell! Other than that, they are very lenient, friendly, and family focused.
