Current Employee - Account Manager in Waterloo, IA

I have been working at American Marketing and Publishing for more than a year

Pros

I was told what I could make with this company in my first year and I have completed my first year recently and have far surpassed it! I earned a trip to Cancun as well.
No cap on what you can make, goals are reasonable and reachable.
Very rewarding job, love being able to help small business owners grow their businesses affordably.

Cons

Lots of driving time and miles on the car.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep up the good work!

    I worked at American Marketing and Publishing full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    -A satisfactory base salary combined with opportunities for commission and bonuses can (potentially) add up to a great paycheck
    - Freedom to take a lunch when and where you want (even though management basically recommends that you dont ever take a break)
    - ability to self manage

    Cons

    -You have to meet a threshold before being able to make commission. Makes for a hard start to your career
    - "Golden hours" are horrible. Forced to work 2 hours after many businesses are closed trying to find home based businesses and knocking on their doors when they are home enjoying family time.
    - deduction off of your paycheck if you can't sell text (negative reinforcement has never been a beneficial tactic)
    - the work doesnt stop when you leave the sales field. once you get home you have to submit all of your daily results, and spend more time planning the next day. When you arent getting home till after 7:30pm on tuesdays and thursdays it makes for an endless week

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Partner up sales reps. You can be so much more productive, successful, and HAPPY when you are able to work with other people

    I worked at American Marketing and Publishing full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    -Very good B2B sales experience
    -Good experience for a young person right out of college
    -Helps you develop your communication skills...not a job for the timid
    -Your days go really fast when you're making so many stops

    Cons

    -You have to make 40+ stops per day
    -Door knocking late at night when families are trying to spend time together
    -Your car will depreciate quickly and you are not compensated well for gas
    -Commission structure is unattainable for most...it has nothing to do with not wanting to work hard...it has everything to do with the commission structure being poor
    -Training classes every Monday to keep up with the high turnover

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -Try not to set unrealistic goals
    -Minimize the pressure
