Looking for naive college grads to turn into solicitors

Pros

Mostly young, energetic people work here. Other than that, no pros.

Cons

This company is one of many companies in the area under a different name that looks for what they call "Account Managers" so they can turn you into a door to door business solicitor. Typically these companies try to get naive college grads to work here because they promise you that you will own your own business within a year. They do not pay you much, you drive a lot and use your own gas money, and most people do not last past 1 month before realizing they were duped. Steer clear. If it sounds to good to be true then IT IS!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

This is an outdated way to market and you prey on people who are too young to know better. Unfortunately this economy is ripe with people looking for jobs. Get a real job doing honest work for honest pay. This is a ridiculous pyramid scheme.

    Pros

    Awesome environment! Everyone is very nice and supportive. I was able to learn a lot professionally and personally. I was able to excel within the company very quickly! CJ Suggs is an awesome manager! He took so much time out of his day to help any of his employees.

    Cons

    It takes someone who is extremely dedicated. It was very time consuming.

    Pros

    None. No benefits. 100% commission. Door-to-door sales. Job description is misleading and they have so much turnover there is only about 9 employees at a time.

    Cons

    -no benefits
    -100% commission
    -no reimbursement for gas or anything
    -ridiculous hours
    -interview process was arduous and absurd
    -completely misleading
    -pyramid scheme

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't try to entice people with ridiculous recruiting tactics of "be your own manager" and "create your own dream". The whole process was misleading and the manager CJ Scuggs obviously just uses people to push AT&T and create his own empire. Also, having a 19 year old interview a 30 year old woman who won't stop talking about how they just want money to drink, party, and buy expensive cars is unprofessional.
