I worked at Better Business Bureaus full-time (More than 10 years)
The commission and bonus structure is extremely generous. Mon thru Fri 8-5 with all major holidays off. Because the job itself entails contacting businesses to invite them to join the BBB, you get the opportunity to interact with the business owners of small, local companies as well as CEO's of large, multi-national companies.
Working in the Business Development department is a strictly commission based position and so the upside of that is that the income potential is unlimited, but the downside is that if you don't produce, then you make no money which can be stressful and intimidating.
Advice to Management
Always appreciate your top sales producers
I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Better Business Bureaus (San Diego, CA) in January 2017.
Pretty unprofessional and straight forward interview. Basic questions. Nothing to worry about. 2 panel interview. The first person was somewhat rude and uninspiring. 2nd person seemed more lighthearted and positive. However, they make it clear there is no room for growth and the pay is very low. I haven't received an offer as I just had the interview. If I do get one, I am going to decline for sure.
