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

    Pros

    Absolutely none. This company is 100% a complete sham. STAY AWAY FROM THIS COMPANY !!! Do not believe the wonderful story that the on the phone recruiters tell you. Very little of the information is true, if any. IF YOU ARE A BUSINESS OWNER AND YOU ARE CONTACTED BY SMS, DO NOT ALLOW THEM ON YOUR PROPERTY.

    Cons

    The leads are bogus,. The business owners you see either are not there after you drive out , or, they don't know your coming, or know very little about why you are there. The company is so unethical, they have to set up several different company names, or often change names so they can continue to operate. The company owner is a dis-barred attorney with a criminal record,, just google his name and read the numerous scams he has been running for decades.

    Advice to Management

    STOP EVERYTHING YOU ARE DOING. CLOSE ALL THESE SO CALLED BUSINESSES YOU ARE RUNNING TO FLEECE THE SMALL BUSINESS OWNERS IN THE U.S. AND CANADA

    do not have complete control over whether you get paid, but upside....sometimes you get paid when you least deserve or expect it.

    Advice to Management

    no positive internet, social media exposure.....boost, spend money, make investment on image advertising.
