I worked at American Marketing and Publishing full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Very nice people work there, good management

You can make good money if you work very hard and very long days

They do warn you that the job will be very exhausting and emotionally draining

They do reimburse you for some of your gas

Cons

Most businesses don't have any interest in the products

Text packages almost never renew - print customers renew hesitantly if at all

Three week training is crammed into a week to make up for their incredibly high turnover rate

44hour work week is a lie, you will work at least 55hours a week with all of the preparation needed

You're making $9/hour when all is said and done

This will be your new life if you take this job, know what you're getting yourself into.

Advice to Management

Slow down the training and extend the canvas planning to more than one day.

    Pros

    I love this company so much. It is "family like" and one of the most encouraging environments I have even been in! There is so much to look forward to every single day and there is always great recognition to motivate you!

    Cons

    There is a lot of money to spent on gas but, hey, they reimburse you! You can plan the day to be non stop geographically!
