    Pros

    People you work with are nice and customer service people in the office seem like they really want to help.

    Cons

    The management expects you to put out for every expense, they have newer reps drum up business and when they leave they give the older reps all the leads. "tryout period is a joke" what company says "set 10 appointments and then we will give you a job but don't expect to get paid for the week if you don't. Quit your current job and maybe you will have a position here". No set territory so when you go to approach a merchant 3 more reps from your company may have already been in the same week and have already given them different pricing. Managers try to strong arm you if you don't hit your goals even if you have hit them consistently in previous months. Any sales job that you can get fired if you miss your quota once in a quarter even if you are at 200% the previous month is not what anyone can call a great job.

    Advice to Management

    Maybe if you invested in your sales people instead of making them feel like they are disposable commodities you would have more dedicated employee base.

    Pros

    I would say set my own schedule, but I really would by lying because everyday there is a requirement to tell your manager (so they can tell their manager) what your goals are and who you are going to see that day/ who you plan to sell that day. It's no secret that the sales people just pay lip service to this requirement to get their managers off of their back.

    Cons

    You're fired from a STRAIGHT COMMISSION job if you don't meet requirements! Who fires free labor? It's all a Wall Street numbers game. "Head count" is a term that you should get used to, you want to work here. You are expendable-at your own expense. On YOUR dime, not theirs.

    Advice to Management

    Um....pay your employees? That would be good. Also, stick with one policy for more than six months. It's too difficult to figure out your paycheck when corporate policies change to reflect less in your commission structure as a salesperson and more for the companies bottom line. Rip up the salespersons bill of rights. And, please stop calling your front line "Relationship Managers". It seems that this company has more greedy managers and levels of management that any other I have ever seen.
