    I have been working at Associated Foreign Exchange full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    In comparison to industry competitors, the AFEX management is extremely helpful and willing to give people time and the benefit of the doubt, especially in their first few months with the company. Base salary for entry level is much better than normal, not sure about the rest. Good work/life balance and you can make crazy money if you're really good at sales and willing to work. Training can be hit or miss, some like it, others view it as micromanaging, I'm in the former camp. I've heard bad things about some managers and employees however haven't witnessed anything firsthand and nothing sounded too out of the ordinary.

    Cons

    Unless you're used to generating your own leads, competent on the phone and willing to make a lot of phone calls, it's really easy to fall behind. The sales portion of the job is difficult for all but the best and involves a lot of rejection, although the consultative sales process/professional approach to dealing with prospects makes it a bit more polite. Easy to get into a rut if you're surrounded by people struggling or tuned out which can happen when companies try to work with struggling sales people whose hearts aren't in it.

    Advice to Management

    Work with employees to continuously improve the efficiency of the business. Same as ground level employees can't see the big picture like management, management can easily overlook simple things that could be changed to make the whole company run better.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Associated Foreign Exchange.

    Interview

    HR reached out and had an initial phone screen/interview. I was told that the Director wanted to interview me. Interviewed with the Director and another executive. I was told at the end of the interview that they would be giving feedback to HR later that day and I should hear back on next steps shortly. Didn't hear anything for a week and so I followed up and still haven't heard back. Very unprofessional, if you are moving ahead with other candidates then you should at the very least notify people you have interviewed that you won't be moving forward with them.
