    I worked at STC Direct full-time

    Pros

    STC Direct is a great place to work. There is a contagious excitement that fills the office with the success of everyone who works there. You can always be successful as an individual with the work you put in, but I’ve never worked at a place where everyone is genuinely excited to see you get promoted and succeed. There is a strong team mentality that is strengthened through team nights and crew nights. This office is a great place to work, because they aren’t just your coworkers – it’s like a family. Justin helps to make it feel that way by not just being the president of the company, but being very hands on helping you to be successful and caring about everyone on his team.

    Cons

    I don't have any - it's a great place to work.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work! I've never worked for a company that cares so much about their employees.

    I have been working at STC Direct full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    If you want to sell Verizon for 2+ years this is the job for you!

    Cons

    They promote growth and entrepreneurship but all you're doing is selling Verizon.

    They'll brag about all their fortune 500 clients but it's a SCAM!

    Advice to Management

    Be more up front. Be honest with interviews looking for opportunities. Tell them how this is a revolving door business instead of selling the lies. Don't tell people about all the "fortune 500" companies you represent and how they can represent them too after making you a bunch of money first.

    I worked at STC Direct full-time

    Pros

    The people were nice and friendly to work with

    Cons

    Pay was horrible! practically 100% commission and 0 job security! Also, most days you work 10-12 hrs. The first few hours in the office you don't even get paid!

    I worked at STC Direct (More than a year)

    Pros

    I loved working at STC Direct for the people. Every day when I went into work I got to see people that genuinely cared about my success and wanted to help me achieve my goals at work. I loved the team atmosphere and really felt that it helped for us all to learn and grow not only individually, but as a whole. While I was there, I got to see many promotions and really knew how great of an opportunity it was and I am so thankful for that!

    Cons

    I can't think of any downsides at all!

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you know works! You've obviously been successful and that shows each and every day and you make those around you want to be more successful and achieve their goals. Thank you for the amazing opportunity of getting to work with you. I know you'll go on to do great things!

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

    Pros

    I came to STC Direct ready to leave the world of working a 9-5 "job" with glass ceilings. The opportunity to succeed based on my hard work and willingness to go the extra mile originally drew me to working with STC Direct, but getting to know the people and the company took it so much further than I ever expected. The atmosphere of positivity, high energy, and a genuine desire for the success of everyone within the team makes coming to work something I actually look forward to. The relationships that I have formed with my coworkers have and continued to help me grow both professionally and personally. I get the opportunity to learn and practice skills on a daily basis that help me reach my goals in business and pretty much anything outside of work. STC Direct provides the tools for anyone who is willing to work and be willing to learn grow to whatever success level they desire.

    Cons

    While some people may consider working hard a con, I am personally glad to be a part of a company that does not reward laziness, lack of integrity, or negativity. If getting something for nothing is your train of thought, this would not be a good fit for you. I work a five day work week with that being at 40 hours. A person can choose to work more if they want but that is their decision.

    Advice to Management

    Thanks for being supportive and teaching me skill sets that have positively changed my life both personally and professionally!

    I have been working at STC Direct (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Training was very hands on. I never felt like I was being left on my own or had to figure something out without the help of others. The office environment and company culture was great. We had fun in the mornings before heading to our stores and had the chance to get to know each other at office functions. I was surprised on how many good motivated people work here, it pushed me to be better myself!

    Cons

    I don't look at it as there is cons, its all part of the career and if everything was easy there wouldn't be the opportunity. 100% merit based means its up to the individual. Great thing is its up to the person if they're gonna run with the opportunity or if their gonna make excuses and watch other people out work them and have the success they want.

    Advice to Management

    Thanks for giving me a chance when I didn't think you would and believing in me!

    Pros

    The environment in the office is great. Everyone is willing to help you out in this business because it is not something you can succeed at by just going at it yourself. This is a Direct sales kind of job so you represent a profitable client and sell its product. No limit to how much you can make.

    Cons

    -Really long hours
    -You work from Sunday to Saturday until 7pm usually.
    -you need a car (they don't give you gas money and you can be driving all the way to Delaware)
    -Pay is really low when you start (could be stuck in a draw back system if you do not improve.)
    -A lot of people come and go, so your friend there might not be there in a few months or so

    Pros

    Exceptional company culture, opportunity for growth, team camaraderie, entrepreneurial focus, rapid advancement, recognition, merit based, no seniority, hard work doesn't go unnoticed

    Cons

    There aren't really any cons if you're a hard worker and have a great attitude. While this position can be challenging, my mentors have given me all the tools to be successful.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work. You're doing a great job developing the top leaders of tomorrow!

    Pros

    I have been with the company for almost 3 months and already have experienced the company credo first hand. They say it is merit based and that the growth is all from within and it is true! In just my first couple of weeks I was able to have 1 on 1 conversations with the leadership of the company and was brought in as a part of the Team. The work environment is unlike anything I have ever seen. The owner throws a bonus almost every day or two just for us doing our jobs. TEAM is EVERYTHING. I really do enjoy working at STC Direct.

    Cons

    The environment can be intimidating only because people are so driven and willing to help. It really is all about people helping people grow and it is really nice to experience.

    Advice to Management

    Thank you Justin for taking the time out of your day to sit down with me as a fairly new employee to your company. Please continue to support the growth of your employees.

    Pros

    The owner of the company took all of the assistant managers, managing partners, and administrators to a trip to Las Vegas. They also are taking us to the Eastern State Penitentiary in philadelphia as a team building trip to go on the haunted trails. The management teams runs bonuses all the time for all of us and it is awesome that our hard never goes unnoticed.

    Cons

    They have a motto and it is work hard and play hard. so if you are not wanting to work hard then this isn't the place for you.

    Advice to Management

    Keep taking care of you guys and respecting the hard work that we put in. Thank you for showing you care!
