I have been working at Worldwide Express full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Training, Advancement Opportunity, Culture, Pay - base salary, commissions, contests all the time

Cons

Outside sales isn't for everyone. It takes the right person to be able to deal with rejection and have a constant desire to better themselves every day. Its not easy, but the satisfaction of overcoming peoples objections and turning them into happy long term customers makes it all worth it.

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

    Pros

    Upper managers are very motivational and give great pep talks. The office environment looks appealing as an outsider.

    Cons

    It is very difficult to maintain a work-life balance with this job because you are required to work 10 hours a day and expected to put in more time in the evenings and on the weekends. If you are looking to have any time for yourself outside of work I would not recommend this position. You will be micromanaged excessively to the point where they break down almost all of your confidence. The work environment for a sales rep is very isolating. You are discouraged from talking to any other employee in the office. The position has a very high turnover in this office, but when asked about this during the interviewing process, management will not give a response about why. They will just say, "This job is not for everyone." This might be a better position for someone with a little more experience in a sales position and not women who have just graduated college and do not have another job to compare it to. If you are willing to give up next to all of your time and dedicate it to a career where you are assigned an area that is already saturated with customers and cold calling businesses where there has been many other WWEX reps in within the year, don't mind being criticized for everything you do and feel like you cannot have a real conversation with any of your co-workers, you may be able to tolerate this position. I worked in this position for almost 6 months and watched 3 sales reps leave the company at different times. When I started, the Account Executive that had been there the longest had worked there for 6 months. Overall, there are people out there that this position will be a good fit for. However, for the young recent college graduates out there (which are the only people they interview), keep your options open and make sure you are considering other options as well.

    Advice to Management

    If the employee turnover is so high, maybe you're not doing something right. Promotion from within may not always be the correct answer. Because you are a good performer does not make you a good manager.
