I have been working at Consumer United full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Good sales training. Cool people to work with. Some fun parties! Always music playing. If you want 6 months to a year of experience and are fine with that, this job is ok.

Cons

They mess up your bonus check most months. Don't expect to get paid right. Crappy leads, and no matter how hard you try, the warm leads you dial 10 times in a row will not want to talk to you no matter how good of a sales person you are. You have to ask to use the bathroom. If you are 5 minutes late to work, from breaks, you get written up. You are made to feel like a robot, not human. This place is all about having as many bodies in seats to make as many calls for them as possible to hit their goals, they promise you the world, but change it every month. Think twice before accepting a job here if u actually want a sales career, or any sort of honesty.

Advice to Management

If you are a call center, be that. If you are a sales floor, be that. Stop changing sales bonus every other month! Messing with sales people $ is messing with their life.
