I have been working at Future Paytech full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Well, if you have plenty of business contacts in your network this could be a great way to monetize those relationships. Every business needs the ability to accept payments by credit and debit. The compensation is pretty straight forward, and they provide a company tablet to present with that eliminates the need for submitting paperwork and speeds up the process.

Cons

The leads they promise as qualified appointments are no such thing. The business owner has never heard or at least doesn't remember the name Future Paytech, and they are surprised to see you when you show up for your "appointment" if they are even there to begin with. Many times the merchant who was "qualified" is hostile towards you, or just plain too busy to give you a few minutes of your time. Your corporate manager insists that these are good leads, but in the end you are the one there to experience the opposite. I have worked independently for other processing companies and decided to try out future paytech because it seemed easier and straight forward (tablet) but the main reason was for leads so I'd have something to get started. The leads are terrible IMO, and I am actually a very good salesperson with experience d2d, retail, and event from 20-20,000 $ items.

My advice is if you are a good salesperson, contract with a different company to provide these services. Compensations are much higher then with future paytech and while it will be completely cold calling business (at least at first) its better then driving around on bogus appointments.

Advice to Management

Don't claim that these are qualified leads when in fact they are not. You are no different, telemarketing small business and getting the quickest yes doesn't count as a qualified lead. If it were so qualified the merchant would know the name of your business at the very least.

Also, changing your name from crescent and claiming that future paytech bought them is garbage. The trade name is registered feb 2013 future paytech....owner is crescent processing. Same company, same problems. The difference is that unsuspecting merchants wont be able to find much from a google search of future paytech except for their website and their artificial "customer reviews" on 3rd party websites.

    Pros

    you get a good size cubical and the hours are average. You can make unlimited amount of appointments which means you can make unlimited amount of money. The one in grand prairie Texas let you eat in your cubical. (think its shut down now)

    Cons

    you repeat the same line over and over again trying to call different bus. owners all day long and its hard to get a hold of one. Then when you do get a hold of one 8 times out of 10 they tell you no.

    Advice to Management

    i think you should at least start off paying 10.00$ an hour because 9:50 is way to low

    I worked at Future Paytech full-time

    Pros

    The local management team is largely populated by charming, good-hearted people who really are part of the team vs. just supervisors.

    Cons

    The job is strictly cold-calling small business owners, and often the contact information is wildly outdated and not pre-screened (for instance, FPT does not work with corporations- yet many times potential clients are plainly listed as such). The work is unpleasant most of the time, and at times unreasonable pressure is applied from upper management- the VP once pulled a young lady into her office in order to grill her about her low production numbers/appointments set, and after acknowledging that she'd listened to the employee's calls and that she was doing a great job, still wanted to know why she wasn't able to book more appointments and pushed the young woman with questions about "problems at home" that might be causing potential clients not to book appointments (despite the employee's having been doing a wonderful job per the VP of pitching appointments) until the employee cried.

    Advice to Management

    I understand this company has been sold, which means it's a great time to make positive changes! Put the power back into the hands of the local management- they're a great group. Move the experienced leads up vs. hiring outside of the company. And find a new VP- the current woman in that role is not good for morale or turn-over.
