    I worked at International Sports Management full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great work environment. The people are awesome and extremely helpful. I had no inside sales experience before this job and in the short time that I was there, they saw and so did I the tremendous growth and confidence I gained. This is a great company to star a career in sales with!

    Cons

    Low pay, you only get paid once a month. Not counting commissions, the base pay rounds out to about 11 bucks an hour. You don't get any benefits when you get hired. There is a 3 month waiting period for medical and dental and after those 3 months, you have to wait another 3 months before you get time off, which can be very stressful. Also, making 150+ calls a day isn't as easy one may think. That alone can be worrisome.

    Advice to Management

    Increase the base pay and don't have it be once a month. Also, sales is probably one of the most stressful careers. Employees should not have to wait 6 months before they get time off, or even personal days! Letting all that stress build up is not good for a person's mental health, sometimes weekends alone don't help 100% of the time.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at International Sports Management (Chicago, IL) in May 2017.

    Interview

    Face-to-face interview that lasted about 30 minutes, asked questions about sales background and resume. Had to come in again to meet with the boss about a week later. Wanted to see our comfort level within the office.
