    -Excellent career growth opportunities
    -Opportunity to make an infinite amount of money if you are successful
    -Great training

    -Great place to develop sales/business skills such as: lead generation, client relationships, negotiations, time management, handling rejection, etc which will help you succeed in any company
    -You always know where you stand and know what you need to do to get a raise or promotion
    -Coworkers are very competitive yet supportive
    -They days go by fast!
    -This job can be very rewarding and you can make a difference for people
    -Great way to expand your own personal and professional networks even if you don't stay with the company
    -lots of fun perks

    Cons

    -High turnover rate, although that is expected with any sales job
    -The days are very structured which helps you manage your time but can be annoying
    -The first three months or so are challenging and can be very frustrating if you don't stay motivated and put in 100% every day. You have to generate leads and find clients on your own so if you dont put in the effort from day 1 you will struggle
    -It can take a while to get going and can take longer than expected to make a lot of money, even if you are generating revenue for the company but when you do it is worth it
    -Outdated technology!
    -Strange interview process

    Advice to Management

    -Continue to expand the company and promote the brand in a positive way
    -Continue to focus on social media
    -Update the technology!
    -Either separate the two "brands " more or have them collaborate more so people don't get confused and get the wrong impression

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Stride & Associates (Arlington, VA) in December 2009.

    Interview

    They did not really ask me anything about my education, experience or any other aspects of my qualifications. They spent most of the interview describing the job and asking me if I minded certain parts of the job. Some of the questions:
    Do you mind spending most of your day on the phone?
    Do you mind working after hours?
    Do you mind getting out of your comfort zone?
    Do you mind a sales job?

    Interview Questions

    • Do you mind spending more than 50 hours a week in the office?   1 Answer
    • Do you mind spending most of your day on the phone?   1 Answer
