    I worked at 512 Solutions full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Highly energetic environment with friendly young staff.

    Cons

    I would not recommend this job for anyone who has worked in the real world. This company prays on the naive and takes advantage. YES you will be hired for sales and you are required to sell. However, those that have done sales for living in a professional environment get compensated for their time and traveling. As an employee you are obligated to put mileage on your car and pay for your traveling costs at no expense to the company. The "commission structure" is a joke. There is no base salary. The company seems to be more like a pyramid scheme that takes advantage of its employees. This company CANNOT keep employees.

    Thank you for your feedback. We do offer a base pay to every employee. And to be clear, pyramid schemes are illegal and we in no way operate like one. Our employees are paid by us and we do not ask for any type of investment from our staff.

    I have been working at 512 Solutions full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Absolutely none. The people are moderately nice, but it is all apart of their "marketing cult" and scheme to guilt you into working for them longer. If you want to work with a bunch of stoners, spend over $100 a week in gas, be denied pay for a month, and work 12 hours days then this job is for you!

    Cons

    512 Solutions is apart of the multi-level marketing cult known as Cydcore. You get hired on a "manager in training" and are sold this pipe dream about how you too can move up the company and be making 6 figures within the year. This is not the case. Get a clue people, if you can be a company owner/manager within a year, it is obviously too good to be true. After being on the month for only a job, you become an account manager and are expected to train others as well when you are still getting the hang of things. There are a handful of things wrong with the management and payment structure in 512 Solutions, but here are just a few: 1. You do not get paid until your third week on the job, and it is not enough to live on. 2. You are expected and required to work 12 hour days and come in on your days off to get more sales. 3. You put thousands of miles on your vehicle driving to various Walmart's, and are never compensated for gas. 4. You are forced to transport other employees (who were hired for a traveling sales job WITHOUT transportation) and are not compensated -When driving around with other employees, you are often forced to wait for them and thus spend more time away from home not making any money. 5. The job is only commission with a draw, meaning if you don't sell enough one week and get base pay, you have too pay back that base pay because it is considered supplement. 6. They tell you that someone canceled their account before it gets installed so you don't get paid, but in fact it did get installed 7. If someone cancels their account before it gets installed, you do not get paid for the sale. A $600 week can quickly become a $300 week. 8. You are often forced or "required" to go to team nights and crew nights. After working 12 hours days, you are often bullied into spending more time and money with the people you work with. 9. 90% of the staff does drugs and they are not courteous of others who do not. 10. There is no account for seniority in the company. If a newbie quickly surpasses you in sales, they can be promoted quicker than you. 11. If you go to the manager or lead with any problems or qualms, they accuse you of not being a team player. 12. The distribution of where you are sent is by no means fair. You will be frequently sent over an hour away everyday for weeks while other employees do not have to travel as far. 13. The turnover rate is incredibly high, people are hired weekly and quit on the daily when they realize how unrealistic this job is. 14. Less than 1% of the people who stick with the company will make it to manager or assistant manager. 15. All other employees are taught to look down upon people with normal jobs. If you drive to Giddings and put $20 in your tank, spend 12 hours in the field and make one sale, you will make less than $8/hr. Also, no overtime. Now imagine $300 for a 60 hour work week, that's $5/hr (less than minimum wage).
