    I have been working at Explore Trading Capital full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    – As other's mentioned - Explore Trading Capital Inc gave me a chance to work with them in 2011 - during the worst economic recession since the great depression. I was a highly qualified candidate with a bit of a sales background in real estate and a degree from one of the top universities in the US, and yet nobody was looking to hire anyway in the NYC area. I'm not exactly sure why other's are complaining about getting hired to work – and getting paid. We all received excellent training and the management was always helpful and giving tips on how I could improve my sales techniques. I learned many important skills about the business sector and finance, but most importantly, the staff encouraged me to use my other skills and qualifications which were beyond the scope of the job for which I was hired. Some employees assumed that the job was easier than it was, but it's definitely a learning experience and it only gives back what you put into it. Those who didn't invest, didn't get a return. Eventually I left because I relocated and went back to school - but I can't recommend a better place to work and better employers. I made a very respectable salary during my time at Explore Trading Capital Inc , and to this day, we are still in touch and have worked together on numerous projects.

    Cons

    I didn't have any problems with my time there.

    Pros

    Friendly staff, free coffee, nice location.

    Cons

    I just really didn't like any part of this job. Working in telemarketing was too stressful for me. I wasn't passionate about getting more clients, I hated calling over 100 businesses a day, and I just felt like I was completely wasting my time. Everyone is different though - there are people who enjoy this job and can earn a lot of money.

    I worked at Explore Trading Capital as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    discussed stuffed on my resume and what I should expect from the job, two rounds interviews with basically the same questions.

    Cons

    Great experience with the interviews but not so much in the real job. the job is purely sales calls and nothing more. He would not tell you this in the interviews.

    I worked at Explore Trading Capital as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Working schedules are flexible. They don't require you come and leave at the sharp time.

    Cons

    What the company does has nothing to do with trading. They are boasting in their jobs.

    I have been working at Explore Trading Capital as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    This is my first commission based job. When I came to know that it’s a commission based job I got tensed. Though my first deal took few weeks to close but whatever I made its enough for my monthly expense. Now I feel confident that I can make more if I try. Management is very friendly. Some of co worker take the advantage of friendly environment.

    Cons

    It’s a challenging job. Need to be very confident when talk to the client. As it's a new career for me, take more time to learn than expected.

    Advice to Management

    Management should be strict.
