    I worked at Avenir Publishing full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Boutique firm, so there are not that many people; therefore, one gets to really know everyone. Makes for a great team environment and really fosters a "family" feel. The work is not "hard" but it is challenging. If one can deliver results there are nice bonuses and perks in addition to the commissions. Also -- which I think is huge nowadays -- the owners/management are more than willing to work with employees to help them to be successful. They understand that happy, productive employees are going to make the company to be more successful. For somebody just out of college who wants a solid place to start a career here in Chicago this can be vital.

    Cons

    Friday's gatherings could be a wee bit longer :) Maybe incorporate in a 10- 15 minute morning and 10-15 minute afternoon break?

    Advice to Management

    Perhaps create some new avenues/channels to generate sales revenue that can be used as upwardly mobile positions for employees to pursue?

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Avenir Publishing.

    Interview

    Connected with Joel on the phone and did one in person interview with three people. The phone interview was very comfortable and the role itself was explained in great depth. I didn't have too many questions right then but the ones I had were answered in the in person interview. Scheduling the in person interview was easy and they made it convenient for me to come in. (my schedule was a bit weird at the time.)

    Interview Questions

    • There were a couple random questions but it was over all just a gauge of personality and ability.   Answer Question
