I worked at BAO full-time
I would not be half the sales person I am were it not for the training and culture at BAO. I am finding a lot of success in my new job, I still set meetings for this new company and I was great at doing so right out of the gate. The solar industry is a different animal than the tech space, but the skills I picked up at BAO transcends industries. You wouldn't believe how often I send out meeting invitations and work with rep's calendars still to this day. BAO is also a great place to work on your Microsoft Office skills like Outlook. BAO is also a great place to work on your Microsoft Office skills like Outlook. You will leave BAO a better professional, I promise you.
You have to jump through a few hoops to make some real money. You're in a cube all day, everyday. You better like making phone calls.
Advice to Management
Keep doing what you're doing, BAO takes people in and spends a whole lot of time and effort in developing them. It sometimes goes unnoticed because people typically only write about their bad experiences, but seriously, you guys do an amazing job at training people. Thank you for believing in your employees.
I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at BAO (Andover, MA).
Phone, On-Line Predictive Assessment and Prove-It assessment, In Person, Sat with someone who did the job, Manager was thorough and ask pointed questions, HR was helpful in the process by helping to guide through paperwork and even where to park. Professional approach.
BAO set its 350,000th appointment!!! What a great achievement!
Congratulations to BAO's very own Chad Sjursen for being recognized as one of the Top 25 Most Influential Inside Sales Professionals at the 7th Annual AA-ISP Leadership Summit in Chicago, IL. http://glassdoor.com/slink.htm?key=vI683
