I have been working at Cogent Communications full-time (Less than a year)
I know how to sell. I have always known how to approach people, prospects, and ultimately close the deal. This is all Cogent is asking for...and in return they provide me with a seriously competitive base salary, a sexy bonus schedule, and the uncapped commissions that keep my activity level high. I was supported and nurtured throughout the training process and receive a lot of appreciation for my hard work. Most companies let their people bring in hundreds of thousands of dollars and expect to only pay their sales reps the bare minimum. Not Cogent! I will make over $123k this year and the sky is the limit!!!
Seeing the unexperienced sales reps come in a complain when they realize sales can be frustrating. Of course! But if you know the sales game, you will love Cogent. If you expect money to walk up and beg you to put it in your wallet, this is not for you.
Advice to Management
Perhaps top grading would help to keep the teams as competitive as possible. A little competition goes a long way!

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Cogent Communications (Los Angeles, CA) in March 2009.
Standard interview. Phone screen, two interviews in the same day
