You better know how to sell.

Senior Business Analyst (Former Employee)
Buffalo Grove, IL

I worked at Global Resources full-time for less than a year

ProsIf you can sell an a/c to an Eskimo, this job may be for you as the pay (commission only) is very good for those who are successful at selling the various service products. The sales managers are helpful and professional and are there for you when you need them (and even when you don't).

ConsVery little training before sending you out on your own. Though my sales manager was very patient and professional with me at all times, I heard from some of my peers that other sales managers were not so cordial and expected a lot from the get go.

Advice to Senior ManagementI think the outside sales people (Sr. Business Analysts) would be more successful with more, in depth training on the products available as well as a week or two "internship" with an experienced sales rep before sending them on the road solo.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
