    I have been working at Connect DFW full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    If you love people, this is the best place to be. I never really knew what really drove me in a job until I started working with, training and driving people. I use to be all about sales, but once I received gratification from being the one who helped that person to where they wanted to be, I knew what I was put on this earth for. If I can see someone else succeed and know that I had something to do with it, thats what...

    The commute.. I live an hour away. Sometimes the hours, but you dont become well off and successful working a 9-5.

    Advice to Management

    I worked at Connect DFW part-time

    Pros

    Honestly just the people you work with, they are very determined to do a great job and are inspiring. It's sad though because they will never make the money they are told they will make.

    Cons

    Where do I even begin... They scam you into the job. Don't tell you that you will be a door to door sales person. Drop you in random areas and make you walk for hours until you about 6pm then you go back to the office sweaty, all to do it over again the next day. DO NOT TAKE THIS JOB. It is a fraud.

    Advice to Management

    Stop lying to your employees.

    I worked at Connect DFW part-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Optimistic crew and SOME(not all)great leaders. I also got to learn about baseball . It definitely made me realize marketing was not for me and gave me the drive to get my accounting degree so I would not end up working a job like that ever in my life.

    Cons

    First of all I want to point out that this was an internship. During the interview they made it seem like it was going to be an exciting and rewarding experience by saying that they do "B2B" marketing (Business to Business). They explained how people succeeded and owned their own offices in other states etc. Made it seem all great but left out what a day to day work day would be like. Keep in mind that even though...

    Advice to Management

    In the interview be blunt with your prospective employees about what a day to day would look like and tell them what to expect from people you try to sell to in the field. This job has a high turnover rate for a reason.

    Pros

    None. Very weird company.

    Cons

    Everything they say is a lie in the interview. They make it seem as if you are going to be selling to real business clients and then you find out they drop you off in areas to sell to random people. They lie about the pay; stating you can do base + commission but really it’s all commission . What threw me off was the weird activity they did throughout my interviews. Three people told me a certain office was theirs. Are...

      Pros

      -none. This is in fact a scam.

      Cons

      -any talk of a base pay is a lie, full commission selling products that people don't want. - bothering people while they are at work or at home and being trained to trick people into saying yes to a sale. -THIS IS NOT MARKETING. It is just door to door sales - finally, this company is a scheme and operates as such. They fight all negative reviews to get them removed, and if they cannot they have their own employees...

      I worked at Connect DFW full-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      Merit based business, upward mobility based on performance of not just yourself, but how well you can train and develop others; so overall team performance. Business works like a sports team, everyone is transparent and will tell you how it is, but also back it up with the appropriate training and support. Fast-paced industry, long hours but is fast-track management.

      Cons

      If you don't want to put in the hours or work, or are not coachable, this isn't the place for you. You write your own story, that is the only reason you see negative reviews.

      Advice to Management

      Rachel knows this business and industry from the inside-out. She is very straight-forward, has high expectations, but also knows how to cater to each person in their coaching and learning styles!\.

      I worked at Connect DFW full-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      Personally, I was able to grow quickly into a position where I was managing clients and a team. I worked off of one of their compensation plans with a base and reduced commission and that really worked out well for me. The people are great, location is great, and the client perks were definitely awesome.

      Cons

      For me, just balancing my school schedule with work. I needed more time to excel at both. So I wish I could have done part time.

      Advice to Management

      More part time opportunities would have benefitted and I'd imagine others in school!
