Pros

Extensive "training program" that promises 80k - 100k within 12 months. Friendly staff. Nice building.

Cons

It's direct sales. You work six days a week for about $300 plus what they don't like to call commission, but it's pretty much commission. For those of you who can't do math well, that's a good bit less than California minimum wage. Supposedly this training program promises that you'll be making more within a few weeks/months, but the attrition rate is so high that you probably won't make it to the higher earning spots. You will interview at the same time as several other fresh new grads and they will interview dozens of people because the attrition is so high. If you can get through it, it may be nice, but don't waste your time.

Advice to Management

Be more transparent in your job listings. I just saw another listing that sounds great on paper but doesn't begin to describe the duties.

    I worked at Defined Marketing Solutions full-time

    Pros

    The team environment is awesome and the management is great.

    Cons

    This job requires you to walk or run around Home Depot approaching shoppers to get leads. You have to have the ability to sale and very thick skin. Be prepared to work 6 days a week for MORE than 8 hours a day for little to no pay IF your not hitting the leads goal. This is also a commission job so you only eat what you kill which could explain the high turn over rate.

    Advice to Management

    Instead of having employees work 6 days a week try 5. Also let people know in advance that this is a commission job and cut out the "salary" spill.
