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

Pros

Free food in the morning. Initial training is OK .

Cons

Incredibly low pay with no raises ever. Senior management treats most employees like a commodity that can be thrown away at any time. OK place to start but and place to be if you need a job but doesn't hold well for a career of any kind. No promotions unless you have been there slaving for 15 years +. Leads pool is awful one of the worst I have ever seen, you might get the same lead 3 other people have been calling into at the same time, just annoys customers and does not instil confidence in them to buy from you. Cant get the lowest costs for some reason zones will only let you buy most products from 1 to 3 distributors and they always change, I heard rumors it is because they give zones rebates that the reps are not paid on.

Advice to Management

Sales is all about incentive working on an 80K dollar deal and know that you can only make $100 dollars doesnt motivate you to want to sell more it motivates your employees to look for a new job.

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

    Pros

    Free breakfast but thats about it

    Cons

    Zones is one of the most backwards sales companies I have ever seen. Their commission is awful, they have tons of traps set up to ensure you don't make hardly any money but they sure do, spiffs are joke at this company other places I have worked pay the sales guys all their spiffs not here. The pay is extremely low they have goal metrics like any sales company but they are based off of nothing at all other than what it will take to make management rich and not you. Most places I have worked say if you are in this region you should produce this much not at zones.... You could be working Juno Alaska and your goals are just as much as the guy working San Francisco. I only spent about a year and half at zones and now I am gone and I am better for it..... I know it is hard job market out there but if you want any kind of career skip zones and look elsewhere.

    Advice to Management

    Pay people better and for Heavens sake don't be so cheap buy some real qualified leads instead of giving the same burnt out trash to your reps.

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

    Pros

    Consistent Hours, Free Stuff, and good way to collect money while looking for other opportunities.

    Cons

    Turn and burn telemarketing. They have a poor commission structure and in general a very unprofessional work environment. This job made me very depressed.
