    I have been working at Troy International full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The preliminary interview is brief to see a persons experience and qualifications. The 2nd Round interview is the greatest thing I have ever seen. Who gets to see what job they would be performing for the entry level before they are given the job or take the job. It truly takes away any questions, wasting time on not knowing and candidates that are not qualified to be offered a position. The 3rd round is a quick recap of all the different interviews. I think that every company should do this type of interview process....almost everyone has been to an interview and got a job, than realized they didn't like the job or didn't expect it to be the way it is. Highly recommend!!!

    Cons

    I see no cons in the interview process!! I could see some that has more of a negative outlook thinking it is a long process. For the positive and optimistic people they will definitely see this as investing a short time into seeing what their possible future career will be about.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Awesome interview process!!

    Pros

    The energy around the office is busy, excited, and fun. There is always fun music playing versus, which liven's things up. Definitely a better way to come to work in the morning!

    Cons

    Some people don't know how to balance work and fun. Those people don't last long, but it's unfortunate because most companies don't care if you enjoy what your doing. They learn that the hard way I guess...

    Pros

    A few months back I ran into a ad on Indeed for a marketing position, I didn't have any experience in this field at all, but what attracted me the most in this ad was that Troy International offered training for none experienced people. I decided to give it a try, the first round interview was a very simple sit down just to let them know a little bit about myself. After, the first round interview I was told I would receive a call if they were interested. I received a call back, I came in the next day for a second round interview I went out with one of their representatives that already worked for Troy. I had a great time out in the field because they allowed me to make mistakes without anyone yelling at me! Also, I loved the fact this whole second round interview was hands on experience.

    Cons

    Everyday is business professional attire, there are no casual Fridays!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the great training!

    I worked at Troy International

    Pros

    Not only are you learning sales and management. You learn management skills that you can go with you anywhere. These are basic skills that you can use for the company, carry on with you, and skills that can help in your personal life. 100% of what you put in is what you get out of it. I am a nationally ranked sales consultant for a large firm, and I still use the basics I learned here.

    Cons

    Attitude. If you think you will fail you will.

    Pros

    It's a great way to start off your career in the sales and marketing career,you are also given the opportunity to climb your way up the corporate ladder to management In less then a year if you really take the job seriously

    Cons

    The only thing I can think of right now is there is constant change that happens once in awhile which is to be expected at times since its a marketing company but it may catch a person off guard who doesn't like change in the working world

    Pros

    There are no pros because everything they tell you is a lie.

    Cons

    The products they are selling are all scams. There on Ripoffreport.com They don't pay you. They still owe me my last 10 checks. Always one excuse or another.

    Pros

    Everyone hired has the opportunity to open and manage their own office in roughly a year's time. The culture of the company is based on training, performance, expansion, and literally constant recruiting. They have an extremely scalable model. In the office, what they call "Atmosphere" really is a lot of fun and gets you psyched to go out and hit the streets in the morning. There is also a huge training culture and they teach a system that is proven in its effectiveness to sell products on the spot in person. I was selling low-rate credit card processing for a company called Pivotal Payments. Other sales campaigns they run include cell phones, Verizon Fios, and energy.

    Cons

    The job is commission only, which for people with limited to no sales background makes it difficult to get started. I saw people go two full weeks without closing a deal ($100). Also, once you get promoted to a corporate trainer and are tasked with developing a team, your only incentive for developing them is a future promotion, there are no overrides. Also no residuals whatsoever.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to be transparent about the nature of the job. You may consider vetting candidates more heavily over the phone. Slow down the sales pitch nature of the interview. I was extremely suspicious of the initial interview, thinking it must be a scam or something, simply because of the way the position was presented. Advertise for people without college degrees who played sports at a high level in high school. This is certainly not a job that requires a college degree.
