I have been working at SMS full-time (More than 5 years)
Been a member of SMS for the past 7 years and have found almost all of it very enjoyable and even more so profitable. I feel like they give the tools necessary to excel in this industry and everybody I have worked with has been very much about the team. I thankfully do not have to travel as much at this point in my career but I never really found it to be an issue when called to do such. I have multiple salary raises over the years and felt like I am paid well for what I provide to them.
I can see how maybe someone just starting out could get tired of the traveling. The more of a team player you are will to be the faster you would ascend.
I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at SMS (Largo, FL) in November 2012.
Phone interview, followed up by a meet and great at the Winghouse. I was offered the job later that day. Since I already had a security clearance and VA ID, it made the on boarding process that much easier.
