    Pros

    Fantastic training in the london summits team. If you're prepared to put the work in then the management are there to help you every step of the way. The processes used have taken years of refining and they are the best at what they do for just this reason. This is a great role for people with an articulate and varied vocabulary. Do well here and you'll be a commander in any sales role as this is the pinnacle.

    Cons

    Forget what you know or think you know about sales. Pre-conceived ideas will hinder your progress in this company. Being good at telesales is not the only pre-requisite fir this job.

    Advice to Management

    Keep going with the process. It undoubtedly works. Keep honing the training to be the unstoppable leaders not only in this industry but to set an example in the sales industry full stop.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at marcus evans (Chicago, IL) in June 2017.

    Interview

    This was my first in-person interview, so it was more of an information session, where the interviewer explained in detail the project cycle and what his daily duties entail. Occasionally the interviewer asked me to basically regurgitate what he just said to assess my understanding of his description. Ended with a very detailed explanation of the pay and advancement process in the company.
