    I have been working at Abacus Technologies full-time

    Pros

    Managers are great at boosting your confidence and making your feel like you are a part of the team

    Cons

    Speaking to so many people in the same day can be overwhelming at times especially on days that you aren’t getting sales

    Advice to Management

    I've been a sales rep at Abacus for over twelve years. This was my fist career straight out of college and I'm grateful for having fallen into one that's as stable and lucrative as Abacus so early on in my adult life. Working for Abacus has more than anything, shown me what I'm capable of as an individual and what can be accomplished when I set goals and push myself outside of my comfort zone. I've grown so much here as an individual and have watched my teammates do the same. Focus, dedication, and bigger picture thinking is key to succeed. Managers and teammates are always available to lend a helping hand where needed. There is no cap to your success here. There is always room for growth and improvement, all while being able to reap the benefits of your cumulative hard work and dedication to managing your book of business.

    Inside Sales Executive Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Abacus Technologies (Naples, FL) in June 2016.

    Interview

    It was a three step process interview. First interview was with the HR Director, second one was with the sales manager followed by an online assessment. The online assessment was a personality test (similar to DISC), followed by 67 (!) questions with different sales scenarios.

    The interview with the HR Director was very professional and in a nice atmosphere. The only thing which disturbed me was when I asked her who comes first at Abacus: Customers or employees - she said customers... I would highly disagree but I appreciated her honesty.

    The interview with the sales manager was more about her telling me about the position, emphasizing that you have to do minimum 100 phone calls per day, building up you account list within the next 3 months. I guess in that time they weave out the people with grit and consistency who don't get discouraged. When I asked her what she likes most about her job she said: the money.

    I can tell that this company has a system in place which works for highly motivated sales people who are driven by money. It is not the most sophisticated (over 100 cold calls per day - no real pre qualifying...) but it seems to work for many years.
