Good Company but needs more Ethical Practices

Merchant Consultant (Former Employee) San Diego, CA

ProsVery Flexible work hours--you create your own hours and scheduled appointments.
Potential to make a lot of money once you have built a Book of Business.
Many different products to sell and make money with.

ConsMost of the very successful reps do not disclose fees properly.
Industry is full of shady people so it leads reps at First Data resorting to those same tactics.
Too much competition. Competition lies and says whatever they need to get the business.
Pricing is initially conrolled by the sales rep but can go up by the company later on.

Advice to Senior ManagementManagers have way too much on their plate to be effective at developing their team of sales reps. Anyime you go out in the field with a Manager, they are inindated with phone calls from other reps and/or other issues. Managers need to spend more time developing team members.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
