I worked at DMA Portland full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

everybody at DMA is really friendly.

Cons

DMA Portland is entirely commission based and the job itself entails going door-to-door and sell CelturyLink products. There is no hourly wage and they demand a 50 hour work week including a mandatory Saturday shift.

Advice to Management

Be more honest with incoming employees about the nature of the job.

    Pros

    I have worked for DMA for around two years now. This is one of the few places I've found where hard work pays off. Yes, It's commission - which is great if you're actually a person that works hard and doesn't just put it on paper. I also love the training I've received over the years. If you like getting comfortable, find a different job; the training will push your comfort zones constantly. I feel like I have grown so much as a person and in performance over these last two years. Wouldn't change it.

    Cons

    You have to work hard to move forward (crazy?)
    You have to practice to get good at the skills (weird? )
    You have to build relationships and spend time outside the office to gain trust and assets for networking. (Nuts?)

    Advice to Management

    Keep being you! But listen more :)

    I worked at DMA Portland full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The work environment is great! Make genuine and lasting friendships. After working at this company for over a year, I gained experience in so many different roles that I wouldn't have gained otherwise. Learned sales, marketing, training, interviewing, public speaking, networking...etc....I gained a lot of confidence in myself.

    Cons

    It takes hard work and dedication! Not a job for people that are looking to coast. In order to improve, you do have to dedicate time outside of the office which can cut down in personal life.

    Advice to Management

    Loved the management. Sometimes what was expected was unclear.
