Positive Outlook

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

Pros

Amazing product that really helps the small biz owner grow biz when used strategically. No real competitor; low price point. It's a pretty easy sell if you can just get the appointment with the merchant (kind of a no-brainer when most of them see it). Complete control over your own time and 'being your own boss' is great. The people at corporate are always pleasant and accessible (even the owners)... easy to get hold of and always positive and helpful. My personal regional manager is ALWAYS available and excellent w/ training and support. GENEROUS medical coverage (90% of Blue Cross premium covered, excellent coverage).

Cons

Very hard work; cannot do 'part time' and expect to succeed. Requires commitment, dedication, passion, patience, and lots of pounding the pavement. Not for people who need a lot of hand holding, but for self starters only. (Lots of the 'complainers' out here evidently fell short, and then blame the company). No car or equipment allowance..yet. Must provide own laptop, but a tablet for demo purposes IS provided to salaried agents.

Advice to Management

Increase the base salary to at least $40-45K if possible to attract people with a solid history of success in sales. Low salary is assuring we always get 'rookies'. Provide some compensation for the many miles of driving agents do per day. Provide more intensive training for reps before sending them out to the field.

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

    Pros

    The owners are stimulating the economy from the proceeds sale of Central Payment..

    Cons

    To difficult for the customers employees to use it, and trouble shoot it. Most small business owners and their employees are computer savvy enough for this product.

    Most of Spoton's customers are struggling independent businesses are are not making any money.

    They are charging their customers to communicate (redeem awards) with their customers on Facebook, Twitter and email, which they can do for free.

    Advice to Management

    Swallow your losses and go on with your lives.

    I worked at SpotOn as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Easy money. Innovative product that has great potential.

    Cons

    If you are looking to provide for a family- this is absolutely not the job for you. The training consists of three phone conferences which teach you nearly nothing about the product. They don't give you a tablet to actually show to customers. Management is awful. Hard to get ahold of and when I do, they're arrogant and rude when answering questions. The product has potential, but the support is not worth $70 a month. Completely unethical in the way they treat employees with the constant changing for prices and policies. If I were a merchant, I would look elsewhere for a loyalty program. They don't care if sales reps are competing against one another even though in the end it makes them look bad.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more passionate employees that care about their salespeople, don't take back commission for sales reps (makes you look bad and makes the employee mad), better training and communication
