Good introductory experience to sales

Client Consultant (Former Employee)
Minneapolis, MN

ProsAppStar Financial will train you, provide ongoing sales training and get you started. The rest is up to you. They are great at ongoing support and keeping you on track with your goals.

ConsIt's sales, so there are the typical cons as far as outside sales are concerned. The credit card industry is riddled with people that will flat out lie to get the deal...Beware if you're asked or encouraged to lie or "just don't tell the whole truth."

Advice to Senior ManagementThe only advice that I have is uphold your integrity. Lying only hurts the people out in the field...Bad news travels quickly and thus they don't get any referrals.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Spinning your Wheels!

    Client Representative (Former Employee)
    Chicago, IL

    I worked at AppStar Financial full-time for less than a year


    Pros: - 2-3 leads per day provided by company - good income potential presented by HR - paid Rep for… Cons: - Bad Leads - Manager not always available to help close deals (on phone helping other Reps) - Target customers have been lied to by other companies… Advice to Senior Management: Must improve leads! It was clear that some leads were not scrubbed properly. Felt like the call center got credit for booking a lead (Good… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More

    Not exactly what you think by the job description

    Sales Representative (Former Employee)
    Denver, CO

    I worked at AppStar Financial part-time for less than a year


    Pros: Appointments set by Corporate. If you get a good manager, it can make all the difference. If you get a jackass… Cons: More than half of the appointments are bogus or have no potential. There's A LOT of driving. Commissions are substantially less… Advice to Senior Management: Tone down your job description and commission calculation examples, they only set everyone up… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
