Pros

Appointments set by Corporate. If you get a good manager, it can make all the difference. If you get a jackass that you don't mesh with, ask for a change immediately or get out, you won't get anywhere spinning your wheels with someone like that.

Cons

More than half of the appointments are bogus or have no potential. There's A LOT of driving. Commissions are substantially less than the given examples. Not much chance to have that much profit in a deal which if there was, it would be accurate.

Advice to Management

Tone down your job description and commission calculation examples, they only set everyone up for disappointment and failure. Don't reward the call center for setting bogus appointments.

    Fair. They could do a lot more with residual compensation than they do. Difficult products to pitch.

    Pros

    When you can make a sale, the short-term compensation is decent. Independence is great. The money can be good if you hustle and develop your own leads beyond the appointments they give (which you should not rely on). Company support is pretty good, if you produce. An A+ rated company with the BBB, but lots of complaints registered. Better than most processing companies, which are crooked.

    Cons

    The appointments they give you are usually lousy. Typical week you might have 12 appointments and maybe 3-4 are decent. Products are marked way up compared to the competition. Company is very slow to move with changing technology.

    Advice to Management

    get with the modern times! develop a decent residual program!
