Negative Outlook

I have been working at The Local Pages full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Free food and some local travel.

Cons

The amount of income was way over stated. What they called leads were nothing but lists. Very high turn over, most employees last only a couple of weeks before they figure out they were scamed.

Advice to Management

Be honest about the job and don"t try to fool people into working for you.

    Pros

    flexible schedule, good family life.

    Cons

    Commission only. If you work hard you will be able to make a small living. I have had a chance to interact directly with the owner of the company. Unfortunately, employees are just a number. When I was hired there were about 100 reps, the entire time I was with TLP every week they have a new hire training with 10-20 new reps at the end of my employment 1 year later, there were less than 100. The turn over is crazy. No gas reimbursement. Everyone cares about number 1.

    Advice to Management

    Kelly, you need to take care of your employees a little better or your success will not last. Stop showing off and teach your employees.

    I worked at The Local Pages full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great opportunity if you are willing to work hard and take accountability. Calls can be difficult, no one claims they use print advertising, the product is valuable and you have to really get to know the business and target market. You can decide how little or how big of an effort you make, if you thrive in sales and competitive work environment you will do great.

    Cons

    Cold calling and being able to keep positive outlook after getting told si many times. Pay isn't consistent if you don't make sales.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing. Management was by far the best I've ever had and learned a lot about myself and how to talk to people.
