    Pros

    Unlimited Income, great direct support from Sales management which includes Regional Manager and Sales Director. This company is a SALES team, if you understand that the "sales game" is a "what have you done for me lately" profession and are up to the challenge, then this is a great place. Like any sales position whether your a sales rep or a GM your income is based on sales, this company is no different than any other, you to run your locations like its your own business within certain perimeters and guidelines that allow you to achieve your sales quota. This is not a 9-5 or a cookie cutter job, it's weekends and week nights in the field, and week days full of administrative duties, but if you have a proper time management system and focus on getting the job done this is a profitable and great company to work for and still have time for your personal life. I personally started in March, have worked hard and hustled, I am now at to the point of making north of 55k, it wasn't easy but the means to make that amount is attainable and still my earnings will continue to grow. You have to make sales and understand what it takes to sell that amount. You have to have an entrepreneurial mind set, understanding that it most likely will take several month to build up your sales and team to achieve bringing home over $1000 per week, it was explained to me when I interviewed, I took the challenge, accepted the position, have worked hard, and now it's paying dividends. I have worked for Fortune 100 companies and have owned my own business. This is the best of both! If you work smart and hustle a bit, you can earn a good living here! I have had my ups and downs, happiness and frustration, but I would have that anywhere so. I would recommend this company to any Sales Professional.

    Cons

    This is not a Base pay position, but I knew that coming in, so this is not a "con".

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!

    Pros

    Opens you up. Teaches you how to sell to customers under high pressures. Great salary+commission. Managers are flexible.

    Cons

    Managers expect you to sell even when the area is dead. Have to work alone at a Vonage stand. Not much room for growth.

    Advice to Management

    Add Vonage stands in areas with people who would spend money on it. Focus more on employee training.

    Pros

    Can't think of any pros except maybe that for the GMs the hours are flexible. As a GM you can set your own work schedule

    Cons

    Company is to wishy washy. They expect GMs to place employees in locations even if you know there will be no sales from that location and then you are expected to terminate employees if they don't meet quota. No training for GMs

    Advice to Management

    Set reliable locations with achievable quotas.

    regional management and corporate promises

    Advice to Management

    replace your upper managers, she only makes surprise visits in sandals to complain not to help. There is never job security nothing but write ups, warnings and threats. When we need help no one answers our calls
