    I worked at First Reaction full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Corporate structure works in theory, but the follow through is lacking. Opportunity to sell Verizon FiOS, leading product on the market.

    Cons

    100% commission based Opportunity for growth will be stunted by politics and managerial mismanagement. Expected to work unnecessarily long hours.

    I have been working at First Reaction for less than a year

    Pros

    The motivational environment and the unbiased manner the boss treats his female and male employees. Sexism in corporate america is a real problem, but never at First Reaction Inc.

    Cons

    None at all, everything is amazing.

    Pros

    Friendly environment, good colleague support

    Cons

    This is a crude door to door sales job. All you make is based on commission, no basic salary, no benefits. All they want is to push you to promote a product (Verizon Fios) that even they don't use in their homes You will go to some of the worst places in Brooklyn and Queens wearing a Formal Business Attire Crazy job, it is no for everyone!

    I have been working at First Reaction full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The people there are highly energetic and very friendly. And if you're a person who's shy, trying to break outta your shell, this will help you with that

    Cons

    The titles are Very misleading. I applied to be a Sales Consultant. Which is not even close to what I am. What I am and what everyone who works there is, is a door to door salesman. Don't even have a base salary everything is commission, so if you don't make a sale you don't get paid. The areas we go are awful mostly in Brooklyn. Either the projects or run down houses in bad neighborhoods to sell customers "Verizon FIOS" products. This place is a pyramid scheme with no benefits. You've been warned Job seekers. They'll tell you you can be rich but be aware. Stay Away!!
