Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

Pros

2 month training, all paid for. They get you very excited about the job. train you on every small detail. Pay is pretty good for a telephone sales job

Cons

Products dont work. Phone book is on its way out, and internet products dont work half the time. Micro management - every day you have to go over each account youve talked with or why you havent sold them this etc.

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

    Pros

    Mileage reimbursement. They pay for hotel accommodations and provide you with food reimbursement also during the training period.

    Cons

    The training period was way to long! Eight weeks to be exact! Way too much pressure put on sales reps to sale! SuperMedia needs to acknowledge the phone book/ Verizon Yellow Pages is ancient, and stop trying to sell advertising in the Yellow Pages to customers, because it's a waste of time and money!

    Advice to Management

    You have to get rid of the Yellow Pages/Verizon SuperPages. That's why SuperMedia is in the condition their in, as far as having to file for Bankruptcy! The advertising needs to be 100% focus on internet advertising!

    high turnover rate, print product declining and internet product high priced in relation to competition .
    be careful in considering employment in this office management is intimidating and will put employees on program very fast .
    This office continually advertises for reps on internet job boards which is a RED FLAG

    Advice to Management

    CULTURE IS NOT VERY GOOD PLEASE TRY TO TREAT YOUR REPS THAT HAVE EXPERIENCE WITH MORE RESPECT .
