OLN – Why Work For Us?


The mindset is on growing any client's business by applying a tried-and-true strategy. Marketing is not about being glamorous, funky, or new-age. It's not about reinventing the wheel. It's not about throwing financial capital towards a "hopeful" idea. It's about getting the most profitable result from the most efficient approach. The OLN inc. approach.

Our Mission

For Our Company

To develop an organization of highly successful and profitable offices led by motivated and focused managers.

For Our Employees

To provide opportunity for growth and financial independence based on a proficient marketing approach, diligent leadership, and commitment to standards.

For Our Clients

To create necessity for their services and products by creating proper relationships with their customers and eliminating media clutter.

For Our Customers

To consult their business with a goal to raise their efficiency and lower their overheard.

Founder - Elijah Medge




With a constant focus on expansion, the firm has adopted a popular and proven Management Training model that is based on the sole pillars of superior work ethic, great attitude and student mentality. We provide our team with a fun and energetic atmosphere and motivate them with development opportunities in a strict non-seniority based business structure. We promote the accomplishment of goals and allow people to reach their true potential with unLTD growth. Experience is valuable, but not necessary due to our thorough training, hands on approach, and on-going education. Our intention is for our representatives to fully grasp and excel in every aspect of a winning marketing firm.

Entry Level Account Representative

This is the initial phase of our company, and where we require all our employees to begin and truly develop the understanding of our business approach. Account managers are trained to deal with business vendors face-to-face and perform small business presentation. They adapt to a fast-paced marketing environment in a highly saturated commercial market. Sales are the foundation of any business and our intention is to develop the strongest foundation in our team.

Marketing Team Leader

As a team leader, the main duties include coaching, training, and mentorship. Leaders become skilled in delegating responsibilities and overseeing production. The key to develop as an asset in our business is leading by example. Highly effective leaders are rewarded with opportunity to oversee their personal marketing teams.

Assistant Manager

Assistant managers are taught essential components of running a business. They are trained on administration, human resources, directing meetings, and correspondence with the client's business development tram. Traveling to branch offices and overseeing large groups of people helps assistant managers fully develop into potentially successful regional managers.

Regional Manager

The regional managers in the organization are the direct liaison between the clients and their consumers. They oversee marketing branches and provide fundamentals to their teams to acquire new accounts and generate revenue. They are in direct control of all day-today operations and help strategize the expansion and financial goals of our organization.

    I have been working at OLN full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    - Great company culture
    - Amazing opportunity to gain valuable, transferrable skills
    - Base pay plus commissions and bonuses

    If you are looking to challenge yourself in an environment that encourages both professional and personal growth, OLN Inc will definitely give you that opportunity. Positions that involve commissions and sales tend to bring out the fear in people, yet always allow them to reap the best rewards. I'm so glad I trusted the training system that has proven success, worked hard, and gave myself a chance to work outside my comfort zone.

    Advice to potential candidates: Go meet the team and make a decision based off the first hand experience you have. Think about the goals you want to achieve long term and see how it aligns with the growth opportunities offered.

    Cons

    Progressive success is based on everyone working towards the same goal. If anyone on the team is stuck or choosing not to move forward, it holds up the rest of the team.

    Advice to Management

    The 2nd interview is a great way to let candidates see exactly what the position entails - thanks for that!

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at OLN.

    Interview

    The company is rather small than I expected, but the interview with their president can be a good experience. Those who are looking for a position as a sales person and a place to get promotion, that might be a good place. But I am not looking for a position like that, so I just declined the offer.

    Reasons for Declining

    Not suitable for that job position though.
