Pros

The only positive will come when you leave the job. If you enjoy working 10 plus hour days with only six hours spent working for commission, then this is the place for you.

Cons

Compensation is 100% commission only and the reorder commission is horrible. You get 10% on the first reorder and nothing afterwords. The boss gets the rest after that. The boss lives off of passive income you produce. In addition, the commission on the original orders are typically small because you must cold call and are not allowed to make appointments or leave your personal information. In addition, they love to dole out burnt territory to new employees. Every one is also full of it.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be truthful and not deceptive. Do not use your minipulative sales techniques to convince employees to do things they don't want.

    Pros

    Cool people work here, the guy that trained me was a great salesman, he could sell a toothpick to a toothless man. Everyone's really young and creates a lively atmosphere.

    Cons

    Terrible hours, 12 hour days are a norm. Straight commission, while this isn't a con, the commission rate is terrible, you're supposed to be able to make $100 a day but you'll be lucky if you even come close.

    There's virtually no training, you're pretty much thrust into the streets and told to sell, you learn by shadowing. You walk up and down streets walking into businesses and talking to business owners that don't want to talk to salesmen.

    They lure you into the program by saying this is a "leadership and management" training position, and their company structure is basically a pyramid scheme. After your 2 weeks of "training" you become a team leader and recruit other peons. once your guys become team leaders, you become an assistant manager, and once your team leaders become assistant managers you become a manager. At the top of the food chain, you average 50k a year. Lots of young kids out of college get sucked in thinking it's a great opportunity. Wrong.

    They are very secretive about all this and they don't tell you anything until you're a few days in.

    No health plan, no benefits, no 401k, no reimbursement for using your own car to drive to your territory.

    Avoid norcal group, dzurunga associates, east bay concepts, all the same style company under the same umbrella corporation

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't try to cover up your shady business by calling it management training. You're just look for young fools to make money off.
