    Pros

    I am relatively new here, but everyone is so so nice and accommodating. When I need help they're there to help me and guide me in the right direction. I love that its a team environment, everyone is so supportive of each other and I always hear the team leads giving words of wisdom and support to their employees! I made a smart and wonderful career move moving to AppStar!

    Cons

    I do not have any cons

    I worked at AppStar Financial (Less than a year)

    Pros

    You set your own schedule

    Cons

    Do not assume the appointments are qualified, in most case they are not.
    Training is minimal at best and focuses on a brief sales tutorial. There was no going over the contract, reviewing the equipment options etc. A quick four hours and you're out there selling.

    They do not want the customer to think too much about buying. It's rush rush to get them to say yes, preferably on the first meeting

    You are not an account manager; this is pure sales and nothing more. If you like going door-to-door then this is the job for you.

    Advice to Management

    Provide real in-depth training reviewing all key aspects of the sale.

    Only send consultants on qualified appointments where there has been a real dialogue and not a one-way spewing of information from a telemarketer.

    Do not hide the additional fees on the next to last page of the contract.

    Do have customer and technical support make more outbound calls to customers.

    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 :)
