    Money Can be Good but it Depends on Your Manager

    Sales Executive (Former Employee) Honolulu, HI

    ProsAs a sales executive, you can make good money. Percentages and bonuses will vary from site to site. Some project directors try to hit budget focusing on costs while others focus on sales. If the PD of your site focuses mostly on costs, it's usually the sales executives that take the hit financially.

    ConsYou are asked to close at a certain percentage, but marketing will often send in unqualified tours and management doesn't care.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet rid of low performers and feed top performers, help them make a lot of money.

    Great company to work for

    Senior Sales Executive (Former Employee) Las Vegas, NV

    ProsGreat pay if producing sales. My best month was $30,000. Plenty of prospects to talk to when the economy is good and they have great value for the customer.

    ConsMany of the young sales managers did not have the life experiences to produce sales and lost sales that could have closed.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGreat company and product. Managers with more life experience should be chosen for floor sales managers to produce more sales from people who wanted and could afford the product.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
