Feels like working at a startup.

I have been working at YP full-time (less than an year)

Pros

I am learning a lot from my sales manager about outside sales and the advertising industry. I am meeting new business owners in the community and building a great network.

Cons

It is like working for survival. Turnover rate is high, so you must be dedicated to performing at the top of your game every day or else you'll fail and want to quit.

    I worked at YP

    Pros

    Protected accounts, ability to make an above average income, even for the SF Bay Area. Steady 40 hour work week, with no overtime, plenty of chances to earn extra time off, besides paid holidays, fast paced environment, but decent atmosphere overall.

    Cons

    Of course being a telemarketing position it required a lot of phone work, a lot! Very steep learning curve for at least 6-12 months. Can be very stressful at certain times of every campaign, not for the faint of heart in many ways.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A fair amount of the management got their positions due to failing as a telemarketer or outside sales rep, strange but very true. Management talent is very lopsided and can be the difference as to whether or not a new sales rep makes it through their for year, a fair number drop out either in training or on the job due to lack or proper management support and knowledge. Upper management needs to open their eyes quite a bit more in these areas. This information could also be considered under the "cons" section.
