    "Account Manager"

    5.0
    Current Employee - Account Manager in Tampa, FL

    I have been working at Choice Marketing Concepts full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    What I have enjoyed the most about working with Choice Marketing is how much this job can push you to become better. This is not the easiest job out there, but it can help you develop into a young professional faster than any school. The training and team environment found in this office is excellent, to say the least. Working at a place where people want you to get better every day is well worth the effort in sales. If you have a personal drive to get better, I highly recommend contacting Choice Marketing Concepts for a unique opportunity to control your advancement and greatly improve yourself in a short time.

    Cons

    This job isn't easy for most at the beginning. You will work a full day, be expected to seek help from others, and eventually apply what you are learning. If that sounds like too much, than I wouldn't waste your time or theirs. Choice Marketing Concepts only real con is that it requires a lot of effort.

    Pros

    They will hire anyone because they don’t pay unless you sell!

    Cons

    Deceitful to get you to the interview. Not a marketing position, it’s sales, say it with me CMC, this is a commissioned sales position.

    I worked at Choice Marketing Concepts

    Pros

    Fun, energetic team. The coaching and training is thorough. There's opportunity for growth. All of management is very nice. Good experience for your resume if you haven't had a real job yet.

    Cons

    It's door to door, 100% commission sales. If you don't meet the minimums, you don't get paid. Also, there are daily quotas you have to meet. Hours are long and you are out to fend for yourself once you are assigned a territory. If you are cool with following a script all day and sales pitches, them this could be your cup of tea. There are a LOT of companies like this popping up around the area, don't be fooled.

    We appreciate your positive feedback about our company! However, as is covered with every applicant we do not do door to door residential sales. Our firm works with Staples and their sister company Quill.com. We manage their business accounts here in the Tampa Bay area. We work mostly with existing business clients and train account managers on how to acquire new business. Also, we offer a mix of base pay, commission, bonuses and residuals. The average for the starting position ranges from $30,000-$40,000 per year, depending on each candidate through the interview process. Our organization has been in the Tampa Bay area for over 6 years and are unaffiliated to any of the other companies you may be mentioning.

    Was a wonderful environment to work in. The people here are supportive and very good teachers. I learned a lot in a short time and feel I grew tremendously as a professional.

    Choice Marketing Concepts Response

    June 21, 2016Human Resources

    Thank you for your feedback however our company prides itself on our honest and integrity, and at no time condones the practice of deceit towards customers. Perhaps that is why you are no longer with the company? Our organization has managed business accounts with Staples and Quill.com in the Tampa Bay area for nearly 6 years now, and would never have the opportunity to work with such a great client if that were true. We represent a company with a history of customer satisfaction, rating #1 among all office supply distributors in the industry, and our team is proud of the work we do for them. We are sorry you had an experience with us that was less than satisfactory, yet we find it hard to believe you actually worked with us for any gainful amount of time and left under that impression.

    I have been working at Choice Marketing Concepts full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    When I came into the job I had past sales experience so it was no surprise how they did things there. Although, when I came in for my first and second round interviews I was introduced with positivity/loyalty/honesty/and energy. I mention these things because it was what I was missing in my last sales job. We like to help each other out (which is not heard of at other sales companies) and see each other succeed. One of the best parts about Choice is you get to control your own progression (which I love) because in past jobs I feel my hard work was not rewarded with advancement. I've moved up the rankings a bit in the last 2-3 months I've been here and I've watched the office grow tremendously since I got there. It seems We have figured out how to recruit those who want to win, which was the issue in the past. If your a real salesman and want to take your skills to a place you can grow and eventually have your own sales office, choice is the obvious answer for me.

    Cons

    Sales is tough, only 5% of the population can handle direct marketing and I've seen many succeed but also some not succeed. I'd say the con to this job is that you can't sit back and relax. Technically (and for me) that is a great thing, because I am pushed to my limits everyday and it shows. For many it is a very hard thing to talk to potential customers and turn that into a great relationship and ultimately a sale, so those people don't make it in this business, and that hurts recruiting for Choice. This comes with any sales job though and choice has the right people to help get you through that hump of direct sales.

    Pros

    Great environment and co-workers, a lot of personal development, managers that actually care. This place is a great place to actually want to go to work everyday. I'm glad I took the job, and I love performance based promotions. I can from a job where I worked harder than everyone else but seniority always won.

    Cons

    Long hours you definitely will work hard in this position they expect a lot from their employees, but your working with people with the similar mindset.
