    Pros

    The comradery you build with your team is unsurpassed. You quickly become a tight family and you wish the very best for each other.

    Cons

    The message of "You can make tons of money here" is preached daily, and the result is that you actually don't. After 4 weeks, you go into a 100% commission situation. What they don't tell you in the beginning is that even when you FINALLY get a deal, it's very possible that the customer can back out of it and you get no commission at all. During the interview, we're told that the average sale is $10,000, when in fact it's more like $4,000. 7% commission on that once a week is NO MONEY (that is, if you actually get a deal a week and it doesn't cancel.)

    Also, I don't know HOW IN THE WORLD their marketing department thinks, but more than 90% of the people who come in are BROKE and cannot afford the program. There's no strategic marketing whatsoever.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more realistic with the staff to maintain trust. Do more targeted marketing to bring in guests who can likely afford the program.
