Neutral Outlook

I have been working at First Data Merchant Services full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

The training is a couple of weeks and it is very intense. Learning all about MasterCard,Visa,Discover and American Express percentage rates and how it effects merchant's and their business..

Cons

You are just a number. If you reach your quota, you are a hero and if you do not you are written up.

Advice to Management

Management tends to be a little clicky. If your doing quota every month and produce, you are treated like a hero.But as soon as you slip a month, that all falls to the wayside.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at First Data Merchant Services full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    ok training.
    good benefits.
    They sometimes have aliances available for salespeople with banks such as citibank(valuable if you can be a part of this type of program)
    Big company with some career growth opportunities

    Cons

    not a career sales position for most. very crowded industry ( not another credit card processing salesman)
    believe me retailers are being contacted by different processors all the time and usually aren't looking to change companies for a little bit of savings.

    Try and find a better industry!!!!
