Negative Outlook

I have been working at The Local Pages full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Free food and some local travel.

Cons

The amount of income was way over stated. What they called leads were nothing but lists. Very high turn over, most employees last only a couple of weeks before they figure out they were scamed.

Advice to Management

Be honest about the job and don"t try to fool people into working for you.

    Pros

    flexible schedule, good family life.

    Cons

    Commission only. If you work hard you will be able to make a small living. I have had a chance to interact directly with the owner of the company. Unfortunately, employees are just a number. When I was hired there were about 100 reps, the entire time I was with TLP every week they have a new hire training with 10-20 new reps at the end of my employment 1 year later, there were less than 100. The turn over is crazy. No gas reimbursement. Everyone cares about number 1.

    Advice to Management

    Kelly, you need to take care of your employees a little better or your success will not last. Stop showing off and teach your employees.

    Pros

    I have never worked for a company who is so family oriented, understanding and flexible. My job as an outside sales rep has been amazing. I get to work closely with businesses and build close relationships with them, I come across some of the most amazing people. While working with TLP in the first year I've been able to travel the entire west coast it really doesn't even feel like I'm working majority of the time.

    Cons

    I have no complaints at the moment!
