Pros

Young, high energy working environment great for recent college graduates looking to set foot in corporate America. The company provides everyone with in house training in all aspects of marketing that can be translated to any industry. Strong family feel with a competitive edge. Only promote managers from with in the company, so everyone starts at entry level and then progresses up the ladder. 100% Performance based promotional requirements with no grey areas. No seniority preferential treatment. Everyone has equal opportunity to growth with the company the moment they step foot through the doors.

Cons

It is a lot of intense work. The goals is to own your own company by building it from the ground up so in order to succeed you must dedicate a large amount time working hard. Its a very rigorous training program where you have to be strong minded enough to handle objections with an understanding that you must fail pick yourself up and start over to in order to succeed.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The best way to progress quickly in this business is to be selfless. Its a people helping people business, so if you are able to put someone else's happiness and goals before yours you'll be more successful. The greatest leaders are those who help without looking for recognition or reciprocation - they just genuinely are interested in someone else's well being.

    Pros

    This company will hire anyone, immediately - no background checks, drug tests, college education or previous experience necessary! A great option for desperate, overqualified college graduates and college dropouts.

    Cons

    Their website and interviews are at best, ambiguous, and at worst, a series of bold-faced lies. You are promised a very high salary, potential for immediate growth, cross-training in a variety of fields, and the potential to open your own company - without clearly stating what you will be doing. Instead, you are a door-to-door salesman lying through your teeth to small-business owners and signing them into contracts which will often hurt their struggling businesses. Workdays are long and arduous, the pay is minuscule and barely covers daily food and travel expenses (let alone your rent and utilities). Consequently, he turnover rate is very high, and management will not acknowledge when an employee quits to keep office morale high. The metaphorical white whale that retains employees is the opportunity to open your own sales company, exacerbating the unscrupulous pyramid scheme.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be honest with your interviewees, and let them know they are signing up to be a door-to-door salesman who will make less than minimum wage during training.
    Be honest with the business owners, tell them they are buying an unnecessary product, there will be cancellation fees, and that the salesmen are working for a third party sales company.
    Be honest to your employees, and let them know their entire pay will be commission based and you will be withholding their pay for 10 weeks when they quit.
    Be honest to GlassDoor, the 5 star ratings are a result of an office competition (notice they are all posted within a few days of each other) - whoever wrote the best review was offered free dinner - and none of them mention that this is a sales job!
