What is working from home like at American Marketing and Publishing?

Pros

There are several things I love about this job. -potential to make what you want instead of set amount. You get paid for your effort. -I like being on my own in the field but having a manager that will do everything she can to help me. -I love the competition. -I love making dreams come true with a lot of these small home based businesses. -I love having a manager and a VP that truly have my best interest at heart always! -Having a base salary in a sales position is awesome of AMP! But, I love the fact that my paycheck has grown larger over time because of my efforts. I’m not stuck! -we’ve been needed BADLY during the pandemic!

Cons

Not really cons but reality! -wear and tear on your vehicle (with effort you can buy a new one more often though!) - long hours. If you want to be the best, you put in the time and effort and spend time at night & on weekends doing research & planning!

Advice to Management

Keep up the motivation. The morning calls are great! I love the recognition! I also love the bonuses & giftcards for beating goals and proving what’s possible!

I love making dreams come true with a lot of these small home based businesses.

Does American Marketing and Publishing reimburse for mileage?

Pros

Limited Pros, expected to work a full day through the week plus weekends. You are given a lot of training in the first week and then expected to fly soon after.

Cons

You have to use your own car with little to no gas reimbursement. They encourage you not to build coworker relationships unless they are on your immediate team. The managers are typical sales people, a little cold and pushy. Positive encouragement is only given if you make a sale other wise prepare to be judged despite how unnatural the sales method was for you.

Advice to Management

Just because your managers had good sales numbers doesn't make them good managers. You promote based of sales numbers and not qualifications that why you have high turn over.

How flexible is your schedule working at American Marketing and Publishing?

Pros

The company is great. The people are great. They give you the training and tools that you need to get your job done. There is a support system in place to help you. The pay can be AMAZING if you do well. The CEO is reachable and so is top management, and they do a very good job of making it feel family oriented. You control your day, and you set your own schedule. You have the biggest influence on how much you can earn. There is huge potential for moving up, and they only promote from within.

Cons

This is not a job for most people. B2B sales is a different animal, and a lot of people don't make it. If you follow the training and use their system, you will see success, but it is VERY discouraging in the beginning. You are alone in your sales field most days, but help is literally just a phone call or email away. The pace you need to work at to achieve success can seem frenzied and/or impossible in the beginning, but it gets easier. Pay doesn't reflect the amount of time you spend working (and especially prepping) in the beginning, but it's unrealistic to expect a company to invest heavily in a new employee. You have to work long hours in your first few months and there is a lot of wear and tear on your vehicle, which you get reimbursed for.

Advice to Management

Reimbursement for vehicles can be a bit better. More CRM training in the beginning would save a lot of time. Employee discounts with phone services would be helpful since we use our own phones. Implement a stress managment or wellness program since we do have high stress days regularly. More bilingual employees for both inside and outside would be of tremendous help.

You control your day, and you set your own schedule.

What do employees say about the location of the American Marketing and Publishing office?

Pros

I've only been working for the company for a short time - but I fall in love with the office more every day. - The opportunities for upward mobility are amazing, and the company really pushes people to find positions best for their skills and needs. - The workers themselves are great, social, and always willing to help. I haven't had a single bad experience with a coworker yet. - Management is very understanding. Whether that comes to getting sick, bereavement, or anything of the sort - I've never felt scared talking to my managements about these things or sensitive topics. - Following this, the culture and workspace of the office is wonderful. Constantly uplifting and positive. Praise is given in public, and critique is given in private in a very productive way. While the work is usually very independent, asking for help or advice is HEAVILY encouraged. Do not be scared to ask questions here. - Working with small business owners. Having people be excited to answer calls, and knowing that you're helping them make money and be successful can be such a rewarding thing. Getting on a first-name basis with several companies and CEO's inherently makes you feel important and seen. - The meetings ( oddly enough . ) They're organized, concise, and FUN. The yearly, company-wide meeting is awesome. Being able to meet the people you email, call, or reference consistently over a meal and a show basically is great. Abe is awesome at recognizing everyone's hard work, and it's hard to feel 'invisible' in the company.

Cons

There aren't many, but the cons can definitely be off putting as a new employee. - From department to department, training varies a lot, and seems very dependent on the new employee. Training isn't a very official process, more just "watch, absorb, mimic". It feels less like you're being forged into a good worker, rather testing how well you learn and adapt. (Which some will excel at, and some will not.) - Communication, communication, communication. There are procedures in place, but the number of departments and their different expectations vary greatly, it's easy for things to become muddy and a round-robin of "well, it's X, or Y, or Z's responsibility." Sometimes it feels like the main location is one big grey area. - Very mentally and emotionally taxing. Working with small business owners, almost every position requires some level of communication with them. Naturally, some of them will be stressed, upset, or down-on-business. You WILL have someone be upset with you directly just as a representative of AMP for any reason. If you're extremely soft and cannot handle a hard conversation every once in a while... this may not be for you.

Advice to Management

Keep doing what you're doing. I've fallen in love with the company - but I realize that starting out may seriously discourage some prospective employees. Standardize training, make it more clear and concise, and give more feedback to your newer employees.
