    I have been working at Money Mailer as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Great experience for sales of all kinds. Experience in all stages of the sales process both guided and independently.

    Cons

    Not a long enough time to really get a feel for the business, and most of the day was in a car making cold calls.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Employment was beneficial but the pay structure needs to be rethought. Shouldn't have to wait for whatever time you feel like to be compensated.

    I have been working at Money Mailer full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    A great business model for a salesperson. In general, flexibility in working hours and control over how you run the day to day of your business. The new business model isn't necessarily bad, it's just not what most of the current franchisees signed up for. Someone new can do very well coming into the system-they will not be basing any decisions on the history of their business and old habits.

    Cons

    The new management has changed the structiure, so unfortunately we are seeing people not being able to make it in this business. Unreasonable price increases-they call it a "frozen carrot" instead of incentives for doing what they want. Most people buy a franchise to have some control over their own business with the support of the franchisor. This franchisor has changed the rules in the middle of the game for many franchisees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We need new blood. Gary Mulloy has done many good things for the system, but he's overstayed his welcome. It seems to most franchises that he is posturing the company for sale.

    Pros

    there are definetly no pros to working for this owner

    Cons

    owner of Money Mailer DFW treats his employees like dirt
    he is too cheap to have a cleaning crew come in and vacuum, carpets have been stained and majorly gross
     for years
    the owner allows sexual harassment at the office- he has been notified about this numerous times - with no results
    if an employee questions certain things - such as the above , and you are intimidated by his response
    this is the nice things about the company

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    treat your employees like human beings act like you are management realize that they have brains
    control the problems

    Pros

    Good place for a beginner to start. Some training which would help beginners to advance.

    Cons

    Locked into 1 or 2 types of ad sizes. Circulation only covers a handful of residents in the selling area. No graphic artist you make the ad that you sell. No credit terms and all 95% of any call in's go to the owner. The owner competes and sells and the commission structure is poor for a person that in in the business as a career. Heavy turn over.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Manage your franchise and help your sales teams to grow. If your sales reps are making a nice income then your personal income would be wonderful. Train, Train but be hands off and allow for mistakes without making the sales rep feel like the world was coming to an end. Open your mind and ears , listen to what your sales teams are saying involve the sales teams to fix whatever is broken. If you have a sales team that believes in the product, feels respected, can make a living, and you give people room to breath... There is nothing that your franchise would not be successful at. Don't be afraid of failure it's part of success. Learn from the events, invest in your people and business. Offer a decent pay and benefit package with ample time off or you will burn your reps out.

    Pros

    The people (non management) are cool, and fun to work with. The company has a good core product, and the quality has improved since the company moved to outsourving.

    Cons

    Management is awful and is only concerned about making money. CEO is a feeble man who has no idea what he's doing

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on the long term and stop being so greedy, find a new CEO.

    Pros

    Fair compensation. New Building. Some great people still work here.

    Cons

    Money Mailer is a printing company that mails coupons via USPS. Enough said right? Print company = trouble. Relying on USPS = more trouble. Money Mailer really missed the boat a few years ago when it didn't move towards/invest enough into Technology (Internet, Mobile Devices, etc). Companies like Groupon and LivingSocial have now taken over. Only recently did Money Mailer finally release an iPhone App. I still can't figure out why for so many years Money Mailer was against this. They instead came up with worthless ideas like to partner with Cellfire and Google Maps. Only recently did they redo their web site as well. Their former hotcoupons.com site was a joke of a web site that looked like and probably was built in the 90s. Massive layoffs over the past few years have destroyed company morale. The brand new building the company moved into a few years ago is now so empty that the office staff were all forced to relocate upstairs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Probably too late, but definitely move away from print and more towards the Internet. The USPS will eventually die (contrary to what the new CEO may think). Also, if the new CEO is going to layoff hundreds of people and also force departments to slash budgets, he should't do things like only fly first class, only stay at 5 star hotels, and putting his dog up in a doggie hotel. He travels often and MONEY MAILER PAYS FOR ALL OF THAT!!
