    I have been working at InStile Acquisitions full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The reason that I love working at InStile is because of the work that they do. To my knowledge, InStile is the only sales and marketing company in Wisconsin that works with non-profit organizations. So not only am I advancing my career professional, but I am also making a difference everyday helping those who are less fortunate. As well as receiving a base pay with that campaign. The opportunity for advancement is really what peaked my interest initially because they have been expanding so rapidly but it's the people that makes this place so special. I truly am excited to walk through the doors everyday because I love the people that I work with and the positive work environment!

    Cons

    The trainers do have a very strong work ethic and they expect the same out of the people they are training. If you are just looking for a job to get by this place probably isn't a good fit for you. People that aren't self-motivated or driven probably won't do well here.

    Pros

    I love the atmosphere at InStile. Everyone’s so supportive and caring, and it feels like a big family here. There are plenty of opportunities for personal growth as well as professional growth. It may be hard work for some people, but I love it because I see it as a learning and personal growth opportunity. You get to follow your passion and choose which campaign to work on. The best part is you’ll also get to become friends with your leaders and co-workers. It’s always the people that makes a place special.

    Cons

    Sales can be intimidating and it’s definitely not for everybody, especially those who are looking for steady income in the beginning. It takes self-motivation, persistence, work ethics, and a long-term vision to succeed in this field.

    Pros

    Great culture and I was able to learn many essential skills that I know I will use throughout my career. Like marketing, pr, interviewing, and just overall public speaking that really built my confidence. The people were the best part of this company with many of them just always happy and encouraging.

    Cons

    The hours just weren't fitting my personal schedule, but I'm happy to have landed another position with the experience I received here and awesome reference from management. Thank you very much

    Pros

    Proper training from experienced coaches! I love how every Thursday we have Team night to mingle and to go out and have fun! Everyone is super motivating, and we are all working towards the same goals to have freedom of time and money and we keep each other going. The way I see it, we are getting free training to be entrepreneurs. I've probably learned more here than any class I've ever taken with all my years of schooling. Also, promotions are determined by ones self, rather than waiting for someone above you to get fired, for you to have a slight chance to take over. No ceiling!!! What you can do here within a year is unparallelled compared to other companies if you put in the work.

    Multiple clients unlike the other Milwaukee "Marketing Cydcor Offices that only deal with telecommunications" -NO Thanks!

    Travel Opportunities:

    Detroit
    New Office next month in Indy, IN
    R & R Cancun
    Philadelphia
    Chicago
    Europe- Yes there is contests ran for employees to travel overseas such as UK and Australia!!! (Yes, there already our plenty of Marketing/Sales Firms in other countries as well.)

    Cons

    The only con I can really think of is the challenge, but this also can be a good thing. Everyone needs to be pushed to their highest limit, so if you want to get pushed to be the best version of yourself then this would be great for you. If you don't want to be pushed, and be in the same spot for the next few years with no growth, this definitely won't fit. All in all, nothing worth having comes easy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep expanding!!

    Pros

    Not much. I was able to develop basic sales skills. The people are great, but I can meet them anywhere.

    Cons

    This is 100% commission. I never saw anyone receive base pay one time. The company could have been more clear on the pay structure. This is a door to door company. The leads are generated from old databases of existing or old AT&T customers. No customers expected us to be there. The management is arrogant and childish. They say it is performance based, but I was a top performer in the field, but was passed over for employees that had a better relationship with the manager. I would also hear the management team make racist comments as well. Very unprofessional.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop telling lies. Be honest to your employees.

    I worked at InStile Acquisitions full-time

    Pros

    I wouldn't advise anyone work here.

    Cons

    They make it sound like you can make SO MUCH MONEY but you really can't. It's door to door sales & practically 100% commission. I felt like I got scammed and they don't reimburse you for gas either even though you are driving around all day. I know someone who lost money working here LOL. Just don't waste your time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop manipulating kids who just graduated from college & don't know any better.. get a real job.

    Pros

    Overall cool people you work with

    Cons

    Have to go and bug people door to door, even on Saturdays. They hide the fact that it is door to door when hiring you.

    Worst company to work for!!

    Current Employee - Anonymous

    I have been working at InStile Acquisitions

    Pros

    They'res not really that many pros with this company.

    Cons

    The company is a complete joke. First of all you are told false representation of the positions you apply for and there is a misleading pay structure just to go along with that. You'll be lucky if you get a 100.00 check, or even get promoted to management. You absolutely do NOT get the 600.00 full training pay either.

    Management will sugar coat everything just to get you to work for them, so be prepared to be lied to over, and over again. Also, the 300.00 base pay is crap you work for 100% commission, that's it there is no base pay.

    You work extremely long hours and are expected to work til 9, or at least until you close a sale. They're standards are five sales out of seven consecutive days if you do not meet the requirements of those standards you will be fired on the spot.

    Seriously, do not waste your time applying for any of these positions unless of course you want to be disappointed.

    I am sorry you feel this way. You have a lot of mistakes though. We aren't '100% Commission' etc. etc. Too many errors to comment on them all.

    I am sorry and if you need anything let us know

    Pros

    If you enjoy selling door to door you're in the right place. You get to walk around outside everyday for 7 hours.

    Cons

    The information you're given about the job prior to starting the training is completely inaccurate and misleading. You will be walking outside door to door with a list of addresses from about 1 to 8 everyday trying to sell. Salary is completely commission based and after training they add 300 to that if you sell to a certain number of people per week. Good luck!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    provide accurate information, most importantly stop lying to people
