What is a typical working day like 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.

What are meetings like at American Marketing and Publishing?

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.

What is it like working with clients or customers at American Marketing and Publishing?

Pros

They put you up in a hotel for a week. Management can be supportive for the most part. Can make good money if put in a decent area to work.

Cons

They don’t give you enough time to watch out in the real world. Certain people are very rude and make you feel stupid when confidence is key in this job. I felt disrespected. It’s cold calls for the most part, so customers can get agitated quickly by you. You drive around all day and get paid like nothing. I just feel like the cons outweigh the pros at this place.

Does American Marketing and Publishing provide leads to sales teams?

Pros

Work on your own. Daily reporting is easy. Daily motivational calls.

Cons

Very poor training - ONE day on-the-run training, Had lunch while watching a Powerpoint presentation, while making notes and listening to the Manager explain info and run through slides. Wear and tear of your own car. No warm leads, Low base salary. Low car expense. Expectations of daily contacts, too high !

Advice to Management

Quantity over quality , not good. Improve your training process. Supervise your management staff. A good salesperson not necessarily becomes a good manager.

No warm leads, Low base salary.

What is the work environment like at American Marketing and Publishing?

Pros

Great team that always supports every employee regardless of sales numbers. Always reaching out & helping others with sales support, reminders, or even just recognition of your hard work. While you are the captain of your own ship; you are never alone within AMP in which they created a friendly & supportive work environment that is honestly enjoyable & fresh.

Cons

This type of position is make your own success. The job can seem daunting at first but will be grasped within time & trial & error. However, I do feel it’s a bit tough to get through the first month but once established; it becomes easier & more efficient.

Advice to Management

A more fleshed out “On-Boarding” Program. While training is great; new hires are turned off by the ambiguity of the job & lack of reference. Getting new hires not only a day of training & mentorship but a complete overview of the best way to optimize your iPad, websites, programs, schedules, talking points, etc would greatly aid the new hires (especially with little to no experience). Training days of course help a lot with presentation skills & product knowledge; but we need more focus on work efficiency. I think this would help new hires immediately get started on the right foot.
