    I have been working at Bank of America Merchant Services full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    One of the fastest moving industries - provides sales associates an opportunity at "business ownership", and opportunity to reap what you sow $. Engaged with employees, they listed to feedback and take action. Client centric, evolving technology, GREAT people. Amazing bank partnership.

    Cons

    Sales is not for everyone: You must be a self-disciplined, organized, person with a HUNGER to compete and succeed, while ALWAYS doing what's right. Put others ahead of yourself - is that a con?? maybe not for YOU! :)

    Advice to Management

    Keep listening to and putting associates FIRST.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Bank of America Merchant Services in October 2014.

    Interview

    It was with two people in the room. One was the manager and the other was a sales representative that was already working there. They where pretty straightforward and very nice
