    Pros

    Executive Team really cares about the well being of there employees, and I am not just talking about a coke and a smile on BBQ day. It goes above and beyond that, and it has really made an impact in my life. Which has now allowed me to have a peace of mind. Thank you AppStar for your support and help.

    Cons

    Only thing that I can think of that would be a down fall for me working at this company is.....Sorry I cant think of anything :)

    Pros

    I've been at Appstar for almost four years, I work in the corporate office in the Operations side of things. In my tenure I've learned a lot about the industry and myself, I am appreciative of the opportunities and rewards Appstar has given me. The industry is challenging and complex, come in with the right attitude and upper management will recognize you.
    A few pros in my eyes:
    Team oriented company
    Challenging and fast paced environment make time fly
    Monday through Friday, no weekend work
    Centrally located

    Cons

    Most people start by 7am so if you're not a morning person you see this as a con, and if you are a morning person then this is a pro.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to keep your employees engaged

    Highly recommend this company! They are truly honest and reputable, both as a merchant processor as well as an employer.

Most of all, I highly recommend AppStar as an employer!

    The training could be a bit more involved and detailed.

    I have been working at AppStar Financial full-time

    Pros

    First I want to thank Appstar with there wonderful training program and with my manger an the help of the others I am one of the top consultant in the making. I also like that we are a Honest Company even when we run into a lot of merchants who have been burned with other processors. We always try our best to fit them in a better program, give them a local rep, better services, and always try to save them money on there processing. We also put that in writing. Lol. (Truth)I am also proud to say that I'm glad to be a consultant for AppStar Financial and I'll be with them for a long time.

    Cons

    Only really downfall is that the team I'm on were scattered all over United States and I want to be able to meet them all and hang out butt my manager talk to me about flying me out so that could be possible.

    Advice to Management

    Y'all are doing a fantastic job. I don't know how the other managers are with their team but building a business personal relationship with you manager is a key point in building his or hers team.

    Pros

    Get to have freedom to roam, do your own prospecting, not a bad work environment. If you are good, persistent and have a positive attitude you will do well.

    Cons

    Need to have either a second source of income or a savings account because you can have some slow weeks, need to learn to work smart rather then hard

    Advice to Management

    Spiffs for gas would be appreciated
