    I have been working at Circulation Promotions Unlimited full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Free form schedule - work when you want - PAY, I'ts honestly great, compared to ALL of my other 40 hour full time jobs, I'm currently working 30 hours, (less than full time!) And somehow earning around $5500/month and this is the most I've made in all of my 9 jobs. My manager is VERY well rounded, charming and skillful. He's taught me everything I know and got me to where I am now. With him being one of the best...

    Cons

    1) Although you're not put into any strenuous labor, heavy lifting, or actual hard work, you do have to have a lot of pep. There is a lot of talking involved with this type of sale, and much repetition. Even though talking doesn't take a lot of energy, sometimes it can feel tiring after making a couple hundred dollars within a few hours, in a single day. 2) The product you sell is literally free, but somehow you get...

    Advice to Management

    Have no complaints with my manager, except perhaps "take a break", my manager works so hard to keep all the employees happy and does a lot to keep us motivated and making money. I'd tell my manager sometimes you can't help people who are truly just lazy and do not want to work. Stop giving them all your time and effort because you should be spending it on the employees who are really here to make money and not just sit...

    I worked at Circulation Promotions Unlimited full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Promotions available if you try. Opportunities to move.

    Cons

    Dying industry. Upper management is unsophisticated. The level of business talent overall is poor.

    Advice to Management

    Fire the admin at the top level and use the savings for bonuses and sales manager raises. No need to have "trainers" and office workers. This is stuff that can be handled by the owner and regional managers.

      Pros

      ADVANCEMENT! I started less than three years ago and have traveled the globe with this company! I started as a Sales Rep making more money than I thought possible for just running my mouth. I have been to Salt Lake City, UT, Dallas and Austin TX, Colorado Springs and Denver CO, Minneapolis MN, Las Vegas NV, Montego Bay Jamaica, and Maui Hawaii. This company is more than just that, it is a family. You are rewarded...

      Cons

      Not too many cons to share. You get out what you put in. For some that is a con and for some that is motivating!

      "Steer clear of this company"

      StarStarStarStarStar
        Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Lewisville, TX

        I worked at Circulation Promotions Unlimited

        Pros

        There aren't any. Everything about this company is bad. It could be a better company if you weren't misled when you're interviewed.

        Cons

        It's 1099 and you're lied to about everything. Read the contract carefully. You will owe them money when you leave.

        Thanks for the review. You are a correct that it is a contract position where you are running your own business! As such, there is plenty of money to be made but like any small business owner, you are of course also responsible for your own equipment. The only way a contractor would ...

        Pros

        Great environment great people also great idea. Flexible and very composed work schedule.

        Cons

        Exceedingly high market saturation. Loopholes and cut corners in contract. Locations to be poorly chosen. Lack of room to expand in reasonable amount of time. Chargebacks, No goods, scandales Sale directors.

        Advice to Management

        Give base salary, give more bonuses and promotions. Change store and marketing locations more frequently needs to target more city based organizations and events

        Thanks for the review. The flexible work schedule is one of the things our contractors appreciate most, and contractors have the freedom to find their own locations to market and expand should they choose to do so. Those willing to put in the time and effort understand the amount ...

        OK pay if you fit the demographic you are selling too.

        Cons

        Oversaturated market, completely milked the venues, lack of business know how by direct management

        Advice to Management

        Don't seem so shady, my manage constantly did things that made me question his integrity

        I have been working at Circulation Promotions Unlimited full-time for more than a year

        Pros

        Flexible hours, laid back environment.

        Cons

        Never a steady paycheck. You pay out the wazoo in fees weekly. Don't get me started on "no-goods" .. when a customer cancels their subscription before the allotted amount of time, you pay back the commission you initially earned. Even when it was the company's fault.

        Advice to Management

        Keep an eye on the directors and no-goods situation. Many dissatisfied employees in our branch.

        Thanks for the review. Part of running your own business as a sales contractor means that your earnings are based on the amount of time you put into selling. Chargebacks are a part of any sales position as no client is willing to pay commission if a customer buys a product today and ...
