    Pros

    Really awesome and nice people for the most part but that's about the only good thing. It's a good job if you live with your parents and have no bills.

    Cons

    IF YOU HAVE A JOB THAT PAYS 10$ OR MORE DONT QUIT TO WORK HERE IF YOU HAVE BILLS RENT/CAR DONT QUIT WHATEVER JOB YOU HAVE TO WORL HERE Money isn't steady it's all commission based door to door sales job never . They will say it's all about your work ethic which somewhat plays a part but u can't factor in some people just don't want or need to buy what you are selling no matter how good your pitch is.

    Advice to Management

    Don't promise or say people average about 400$ a week because they don't I talked to some of my co-workers while working there and some said they didn't make but maybe 100$ a week if that. Maybe advise who ever you interview that if they have a steady job with a decent income and have bills to take the job. This job should be tailored towards kids who live with their parents or don't pay bills it's a great opportunity for someone like that or someone looking for a second job maybe.

    Pros

    Nice employees. Opportunity to move up in company

    Cons

    The entry level position is marketed as a "team leader" position when in fact everyone starts as a door to door salesperson working 7:30 am - 5:30 pm, paid entirely through commission, and must work in that position for 6-12 months before promotion to better position and salary pay.

    Advice to Management

    Be more transparent about what the position really is on job postings. A "Team Leader" is hardly accurate.

    Pros

    Job is great if you don't mind driving up your own gas, walking from business to business in the elements.

    Cons

    You need your own car, long hours (730a-6pm), you're a door-to-door sales person, nothing is reimbursed to you for mileage or gas etc.

    Advice to Management

    Be more honest about what the job initials. This is a door to door sales job not an office marketing position

    Pros

    Great sales training structure and nice employees

    Cons

    This is every bit of door to door sales and they will tell you that it is not but you are walking from business to business and harassing the employees to sign up for T-Mobile service

    Advice to Management

    Tell people what the job really is up front

    I worked at AGI Atlanta full-time

    Pros

    Team atmosphere is high, and extremely motivated. Some valuable life skills are acquired that are useful in life situations. Ability to make as much money as you want, but it will take time to start seeing progress.

    Cons

    Extremely long hours. But you know what they say, the person who puts in the most, gets the most. If you are not a morning person, then this job is not for you

    Advice to Management

    Management is actually awesome!

    Pros

    Working here allows you to determine the amount of money you make. Which can be a great thing for those who love direct sales and a not so great thing for those who don't enjoy it.

    Cons

    No auto allowance, no gas reimbursement, amongst other things. They'd need to extend better benefits to their employees to avoid such a high turnover rate as they have.

    Advice to Management

    Better benefits.

    Pros

    The office environment is great and the people are awesome until you realize you were lied to.

    Cons

    This is a DOOR to DOOR sales job. During the interview I was told that they were a marketing firm that worked with T-Mobile. I was also told that it was a base pay plus commission job. Neither of these are true. This is a 100% commission job and no marketing involved. To me it kind of came across as disrespectful to business owners, by ignoring their "no soliciting" sign as well as trying to get their employees to sign-up even though they are on the clock and it is interrupting their work. You also work between 10.5-12 hours a day which does not include your commute to and from work. Because of this it leaves little time for personal life during the week.
    Some people on here have stated, "If you are lazy then you'll find a con." or "If you have a good work ethic then this is an easy job." To me both of these are crap because most of the time the customers had to get their spouses approval, which makes the job harder and this is in all honestly just a good job for people that live at home with their parents with no responsibilities. Not the ones that have a family or are trying to start a family.
    Because of all of this the turnover rate is ridiculously high.

    Advice to Management

    Tell the truth during the interview process and your turnover rate will not be as high. Also skip the bs morning chants and games and just allow for your employees to start the day later.

    Pros

    Crazy opportunity for growth with no seniority or favoritism, great people to work with, learn hands on.

    Cons

    Hours are not far from ordinary but takes a little to get used to. Tough mental test.

    Advice to Management

    Directly teach and train more

    Pros

    Great sales and leadership training. Amazing camaraderie and team building experience. The company trips were fun and immersive. great for someone just starting out in the workforce.

    Cons

    No base pay makes it hard for employees to focus on the work if they have any real responsibilities.

    Advice to Management

    Introduce a living wage as base pay with bonus for successful sales performance. Retention rates would be much higher.
