great for some, nightmare for many

Residential Account Executive (Former Employee)
Newark, NJ

Prosbenefits from day 1 , good training, lots of independence on job, good commission structure. if you are good at this job 100k is easily attainable

Consdont work in newark office if you do not speak spanish or portugese, very high pressure constantly encouraged to work on days off, paid by install date rather than sale date. when I started in newark I was told we were to get 400 leads a month and if you sell 11 you make 100k. if you do not speak spanish you have to work either bayonne or south newark. you can only sell customers who are active with another provider (dish, direct tv, fios) therefore in newark you have very little opportunity. for example you get probably 300 leads on average, atleast 100 of the addresses are vacant, another 120 dont have any provider so you cant sell them, 50 of them have a competitor owe atleast 300$ to the company. so that leaves you with 30, so learn spanish or have a VERY HIGH close rate.
Very high turnover for sales reps, out of 100 reps that are hired for being studs in real estate, insurance, cars, etc only about 10 end up making the big money. its pretty much feast or famine. but if you can do it i cant think of a better job

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
