    Pros

    - promotions happen often - I have seen five friends of mine become C.E.Os of their own companies via this opportunity. Most people get promoted to a team leadership position in less than 2 weeks
    - personal growth - skills taught at SCP are invaluable for individuals looking to mold themselves into professionals, SCP taught me communication skills, how to provide customers with consultative solutions, it taught me how to grow and form client relationships with high integrity, how to be solution oriented, how to coach others, how to set goals effectively, and entrepreneurship via learning how to run a business from the ground up. All of these skills are essential for learning how to become a successful manager and leader in any field
    - best culture/work environment I have been part of - weekly team building events, everyone is selfless and wants to see their teammates succeed, involvement with philanthropic causes such as Operation Smile and Boys/Girls Club
    - travel and network opportunities in Denver, Bahamas, Scottsdale, and Boston
    - friendly competition - variety of bonuses have been offered, such as sporting tickets, new suits, Nike IDs, Beats headphones and a Ruth Chris steakhouse dinner

    Cons

    - requires hard work, there are no overnight success stories, this opportunity truly rewards those with a solid work ethic, good people skills and stable attitude. All of these skills are taught and needed to become successful in any line of work. SCP has a very clearly defined Career Path and System. Follow these steps, work hard and do things with honesty and integrity. If you do, success is a byproduct
    - no seniority - you dictate your promotion and growth within the company. Mentors and coaches are there to help. Again, the choice is on you to work hard
    - business to Consumer Sales - NOT DOOR TO DOOR, anyone who has done D2D knows these are very different. Fortune 150 companies provide SCP with leads to go to. D2D is randomized and more aggressive. At SCP, they take the role of consultants to truly see if customers can be helped, not sold

    Advice to Management

    - keep doing what you are doing
    - advice to new employees. Understand that you do not have to be good at sales to succeed. Instead, follow the system, learn something new everyday, be a team player - this truly is a people help people business, be a consultant and master the basics which are work ethic, attitude and people skills. Lastly, enjoy the journey and be willing to get out of your comfort zone. Do all these and success will come

    Pros

    none. but the website says i have to write 5 words.. there we go.

    Cons

    They are shady to say the least. it is a 3 step interview process which is a complete waste of time. first interview took 10 minutes and asked the most basic bland question. 2nd interview is more of the same cliche questions and you're interviewed by people in their early to mid 20's that aren't qualified to make hiring decisions. the third interview is where they MIGHT explain what you'll actually be doing. This company has mastered the art of sounding legit and professional when all they are is door-to-door sales for centurylink. They will use classic business lingo to sound legit but don't fall for it (direct marketing, face-to-face sales, fortune 500 companies, blah blah blah). I had to ask very specific questions about what the duties are and they would beat around the bush before admitting its selling door to door. You'll be promised al of these advancement opportunities but when they already have 50 people in your position and constantly hiring, who in the world are all of these people supposed to advance? Don't waste your gas, time, or energy with this guys. Find a real business to work for.

    Advice to Management

    Stop being shady in your job opening ads and interviews. Just explain what the actual job is. Selling Centurylink internet by knocking on doors. Plain and simple.

    Pros

    promotions happen often. its good to see hard work pay off. birthdays and weddings, etc are celebrated. good to know a company cares about personal life. company events throughout the year include optional travel which was always fun. I love networking and meeting new people. working with people I enjoy being around daily is always awesome.

    Cons

    time off can be tough. not super flexible unless notice is give which is normal. first pay is a two week delay and pay during training isnt great but you can make up for it later. after that its weekly which is actually a huge pro!

    Advice to Management

    reward your people and show them you care. it goes a long way.

    Pros

    Pros of this company I know that this company is legit and though I only got to the phone interview because of me being in another state, I would be willing to move up to Salt Lake to get to work for this company and make a difference.

    Cons

    Wish the company was in other states however one day when the company gets even more success they will get to become world wide.

    Pros

    I have read the reviews on the site and felt the need to add a review about the company. They are very upfront throughout the entire interview process about the hours and the position. They have taken on a business to consumer campaign, which should not be confused with door to door sales. Anyone who has done sales before understands this is very different. They also give full training and are incredibly systematic with what they do.
    Their sales approach is more consulting than it is hard sales. This is was differentiates them from other companies. They stress consulting practices with customers which is why their results are not only high in quantity but also quality.
    I feel very strongly that this company has a bright future and is worth being a part of.
    Everyone that comes in here leaves having learned something and building a network of supportive and ambitious individuals.

    Cons

    It seems like the company gets confused with other direct sales or marketing companies. People who turn away not having heard the career path here are losing out on an opportunity.

    Advice to Management

    Thank you for the training program and changing my mentality on sales and consulting.

    Very hands on from day one and I have learned so much from everyone in the office! Full Training and Mentor-ship program! Awesome "get-at-it" mentality we are all pushing everyone towards their personal and professional goals!

    Cons

    Busy work days!
    ZERO seniority, you MUST work for it!
    must be motivated
    Must be comfortable talking to people
    3 round interview process

    Nice people to work with. Great way to meet new young people. Everyone is willing to help you out with questions and what not.

    Cons

    Not worth it for doing door-to-door sales. Pay is a bit misleading. Wasted alot of gas driving around for nothing in return.

    The environment and people are very upbeat and excited to start each day. Every day I went into the office I was pumped to start my day. Also the fact that you are learning everyday from meetings specifically for people at different stages in their career means that you are in a constantly growing. The skills and experience that you gain in this office are invaluable and transferable to any career you decide on, even if it isn't with this company.

    -1 week training at a base pay
    -MUST be able to talk to people

    Pros

    There are many pro's to accepting a career at Summit Consulting Partners. The first and most important is the hands on management training program. In this program they coach and guide you into becoming a successful leader and manager. The second pro to this job is working with the friendliest individuals in the Salt Lake region. Each person within the company is willing to help you in any way possible. Lastly, this job gives you the necessary skills that can be applied to any career path; but in all honesty once you start your career at Summit Consulting Partners you will not want to leave.

    Cons

    Your work ethic and attitude are the two things that you have direct control over. So this, comes the saying "work hard, play hard." If you aren't willing to give this job 100% then your results will not be what you desire.

    Advice to Management

    My only advice to management would be to make sure that the administrators have an awesome time in the Bahamas for all the hard work that they put in each and every day.
    It would also be nice if you ask the building owners to install a coke machine! :)
