    I have been working at YP full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    The people that I work with are phenomenal. Everyone is very friendly and helpful and management wants to see you do well. The incentives and contests are very lucrative and you can make a lot of money if you work hard. With that being said this is not an easy job there is a new challenge every day (but that is why I love it). I will never be bored at YP and am super stoked about the future of the company!

    Cons

    The training (one week) was too short, I would have liked a least an overview on the sales process from beginning to end. As a salesperson you handle the whole sale and they do not teach you what to do after the customer agrees to sign up. Besides the training I really don't see any other cons, YP is an awesome place to work at and so much more than just a job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make the training for the DSE's at least 2 weeks! 4.5 days barely scratched the surface and the first 3 or 4 sales when you get back are hard to find someone willing to help you key it in. Things that need to be introduced are adsell, salesforce, ifulfill and all of the help telephone lines.

    I have been working at YP full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Better than average pay.

    Company has potential for growth.

    Cons

    Products are lacking

    Every product that is rolled out is done so without bugs fixed

    Systems are old and broken requiring extra work to complete every transaction

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Respect your leaders who have grown the company. Don't mess with their compensation.

    Add back quarterly incentive trips.

    Make winners circle auto qualifiers more attainable.

    Pros

    Work-life balance, time off, you get to interact with several different types of businesses

    Cons

    Promotions, they can come back for your commission if a customer doesn't pay, or wants to cancel due to lack of product producing results

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take away the risk of losing our commission due to things that are out of the control of the rep. We sell what the company wants us to, now it's the company's job to do their part.

    I have been working at YP full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    The training was superb. Some of the best training I've ever had. The environment was very professional and extremely friendly. The base pay was good at 25k before commission. Base pay provides a cushion until you have a chance to earn sales commissions. If you love sales, then you will enjoy YP.

    Cons

    The leads were stale after about the first 2 week so every month. It is very frustrating calling the same leads over and over again. Fair amount of products, but not very cutting edge. It was hard to sell products that you don't really believe in much.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in newer internet marketing and advertising solutions.
