    Advice to Management

    THIS IS THE DEFINITION OF AN APPOINTMENT -they know why i'm coming i'm seeing the decision makers and an allotment of time has been set where they can give me there attention to make an educated decision your so called pre-qualified 3x over was a joke at best !

    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

    If you find any please let me know. Only reason I'm still writing is because the app made me. Not a real job

    Cons

    It's non sense. They give you "appointments" and expect you to make them money. They blame you once a sale isn't made but don't tell you how the "appointment setters" don't actually make any appointments. If you want to waste your gas and time please take this job.

    Advice to Management

    Please close this company
