    Pros

    Everyday is something new. It is a marketing company. If you can sell, have a great personality, and know how to manage your time efficiency, you will be successful.

    Cons

    Texas summer heat. Month behind on commissions (understandably though).

    Advice to Management

    I have been under two different managers. Both run thier teams completley differently. My managers were and are always there whenever I needed assistance.

    I worked at Netpique full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Well it's all acquisition sales. You set your own hours and you can succeed selling Reliant electricity. You can enjoy the fresh air and meeting people. There is a small base but not all of it is in cash. They pay you in gas cards - IF you sell enough.

    Cons

    You won't get PAID any commission for 60 days! You have to pick an area that you know - which is no problem - but be warned - if you live in the SE area, SE of Houston - you will be driving about 90 miles round trip for a week and then once a week for their weekly meetings. Remember - you won't see DIME ONE of any commission money for at least 60 days. Don't even THINK about taking their insurance. You won't be able to afford it.

    Advice to Management

    BE HONEST with people up front. Tell them they need to bank at least two months mortgage payments and other money just to survive. TELL THEM THE TRUTH about where they have to drive for training.

    I worked at Netpique full-time

    Pros

    Work alone, outside all day, you can somewhat set your own pace and schedule... overall the experience was okay!

    Cons

    You're expected to be outside all day, no matter the weather or temperature, you're door to door harassing businesses... but, when you take the position, you'll know what to expect

    I worked at Netpique full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Freedom, easy going and friendly co-workers. Allowed you plenty of time to do other things because you are out in the field everyday. If you have another source of income then this is a good option to make extra money each month. You could make around an extra $ 2500 per month here without having to go to an office everyday. But you will have to work hard to keep that extra $ 1500-2500 per month here.

    Cons

    Very little pay. You will make $ 1550 a month in salary. The job is to go out and knock on doors of small to medium sized business owners and see if they are interested in lowering their light bill. Quite often the customers could care less about saving $ 10.00 a month on their light bill so there is no urgency in working with you. You will have to get used to getting blown off and eye rolls from prospects when you arrive to bother them the 3rd time in 3 days. While there are some salesman making 50-60K they represent maybe 5-10% of the sales team. The turnover is unbelievable. I saw more faces come through there than I could count in the 5 months I was there. If you can make it 3 months you are eligible for benefits but that will take a good piece of your paycheck. Part of your pay is in gas cards if you meet a certain quota. Very few people meet quota to reach gas cards or "bonus". Overall stay away unless you absolutely need 1500 a month guaranteed.

    Advice to Management

    Work to get better improve the sales process for both reps and customers. Reliant should help more in improving sales numbers.

    Pros

    Great sales experience meet many business owners.

    Cons

    Your supposed to be paid commission on your sales, but they return your signed and submitted contracts and tell you that the price is wrong and you have to renegotiate they are cancelling your contract. They set the price you use their techniques and sales materials. All sales are third party verified. Asked for data supporting their claims and was ignored.. You have to talk to the managers several times a day, but pay your own phone and transportation without reimbursement.

    Advice to Management

    If you really want to make a business successful you need some business integrity, and give your sales staff the tools they need to do their jobs. No one will sign with such an outfit.

    I worked at Netpique full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Depends on how you look at it. If you like the outdoors and walking then this a job for you.

    Cons

    It's a revolving door of people. There is no science to this. It's just a numbers game and having thick skin. It takes a special mindset to be good at this type of sales game. It wasn't for me and It was time to move on after spending a few months there.

    Advice to Management

    None. I liked my manager and he was hands on with his team.

    Pros

    You have full support from the sales managers. They even shadow you when seeing clients.

    Cons

    Unrealistic regional management structure. Expectations are not in line with the marketplace. Too much turnover.among sales executives.

    Advice to Management

    Your product is one in a saturated market with an ugly reputation. Get your client to spend more money to push their brand locally.

    I have been working at Netpique (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Work your own hours, flexible schedule. Upbeat atmosphere - fun team and environment to work with. Monthly contests that include vacations. Salary plus commission, 401K and benefits- great offering for a sales company.

    Cons

    Wear and tear on personal vehicle, cold-calling can be tough, and quotas can sometimes be hard to meet. This is a true hunters-sales position, need to be able to talk to business owners and get past decision makers.

    Advice to Management

    Lower the monthly quota

    I have been working at Netpique full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    If you are in desperate need of money, then you can get about 1600-2000 gross here until you are able to find another job. This is only a career opportunity for relatively few people, and you will only generate as much as 70k as a Sales Manager.

    Cons

    Very disorganized Corporate Structure. Mediocre training and development. Very minute chance for advancement. As a sales rep you will generate about $300 a week after you exclude you gas expenses. There are literally too many more to include right now. If you can work as a waiter in a decent restaurant, you will make more money there then here.

    Advice to Management

    Fire everybody and start anew in your Houston Branch. Simply look at your turnover rate!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, management is there to help and assist, but is not overbearing. Get to speak with and meet new people everyday. Room for growth - we have a weekly meeting, and get to meet the team and discuss challenge/successes. Seems like a fun team to work with. Uncapped commissions! Plus a salary that starts during training.

    Cons

    Small salary, but at least there is one! Benefits are expensive

    Advice to Management

    would like reimbursement for mileage
