    I have been working at Blue Star Jets full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I work at the Chicago Office, everyone there is really friendly and open to bounce ideas off of. We all work for commission but really act like a team. The Chicago office does have a training program, material and resources that help you get started. They also provide lists and management is helpful to provide hints and feedback.

    Cons

    I see a lot of people come in and not understand how to manage there time. I think for some people who need to be actively managed this position may not be for them.

    Give some base salary to employees! Especially when there is a lack of leads coming in to build a business upon.

    I worked at Blue Star Jets full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Pros: Company is very well known. Wealthy Clients, Prospecting all over the world. Dealing with the 1% of the world. Stuart Lee an excellent trainer and person, who is no longer with the company. I wonder why?

    Cons

    Cons: I horrible place to be associated with. No training , no leadership, no help what so ever. They expect you to know the information without no type of explanation or training. All they want you to do is cold call all day long. If you have a leasing or selling or buying jet deal, good luck you're on your owned. A very un professional environment. They only support their senior brokers. No leads, if any given to the new brokers. They stay on you regarding cold calls. It seems the only thing they know how to do is cold calling. Ask advice on ( wet, dry, damp ) leasing jets and they think you come from another planet. In other words, they don't know how to do the deal. Make sure if you're going to enter this type of business that you have your saving in place. It takes about a year to get your business going. Also make sure that you safeguard your commission because they will always find ways to take your money without your authorization ( BE WARE ). Charging you fees that is not in your agreement with the company.

    Advice to Management

    No: I would not recommend this company to a friend or anyone. If they don't change the method in which they conduct business. They will lose quality brokers to the competition. They offer you no incentive to stay with the company. To them you're just a number. Broker leave fast, due to the non support.
