Excellent compensation, benefits, training, and support. My compensation has grown every year. You are surrounded by positive, optimistic people - the negative ones drop out quickly. You will be in charge of your project, your earnings and you will have lots of ways to maximize your income. You work on a team, but also work independently, so you have the best of both worlds. No cut throat activities amongst your peers allowed here. The days can fly by, since this is a high activity type of work. Most of our customers are great to work with and like (some even love) our great directories and prices. It is challenging to be sure, but the rewards are worth it.
It IS hard work! You work long hours. You Must love sales, the thrill of selling, & upselling - the idea of helping small business owners or it may not be for you. It is not for people who like people...it's for people who love sales! Lots of prospecting required - to some that may be a con. We work in all types of weather - good and bad, and we do use a lot of petrol!! Your car becomes your office.
If you're not organized, forget it! If you can't think positive, stay away. If you don't like to work hard, seek employment elsewhere. If getting "No's" bothers you, you "no" like it here!
Advice to Management
Communication could improve on almost all levels. Goals & quotas should be reviewed , more flexible and perhaps, based on factors in the marketplace and economy, etc, as opposed to a "standard" decided years ago.

I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at American Marketing and Publishing (Mokena, IL) in October 2017.
I applied online for job in DeKalb, IL, and received a phone interview 24 hours later. The interviewer said he liked me a lot, and got me a personal interview 2 days later. After a 22 mile drive, I had time to read their monthly newsletter and was impressed by others' successes. My interview was probably 40 minutes, many questions asked, and I was asked to do a quick sales pitch to someone who had a No Solicitors sign on door. He said I was the best interview he had all week, and I left awaiting contact for an observation day. 3 days later I received an email excluding me from further consideration. I am 66.
