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

    Pros

    Pay is pretty good for the work required. Hours are somewhat flexible, but that was slowly changing over time. Region manager was very understanding and cooperative. Also there were certain ways to trick the quality team into thinking you worked a full day (i.e. recording random records as unable to complete, due to business being closed).

    Cons

    There was zero sense of Job Security. It was hard for me to stay motivated when I would see fellow hard working employees get laid off, for no other reason than to make the ROI as a whole look better.

    The position was also becoming less desirable, due to more and more unnecessary surveillance procedures being incorporated. There was also a strong disconnect with what was expected and what was actually realistic in the field as far conversations go. Sometimes I would know I was wasting my time and the clients time, but would have to lie on my report in order to fly under the radar. Of course I never had any problems with quality control, which made me contemplate the validity of my whole job.

    As a whole it pays well, but offers little in the since of job satisfaction and security. The main goal was to go undetected from any higher ups and collect your paycheck.

    Advice to Management

    Have more team building and company involved meetings/get-together's. It's hard to explain value to clients, when you don't feel like your valued by them personally. Also focus more on metrics and less on what time someone left the field, otherwise you eliminate any incentive for employees to work efficiently or care about their numbers pass the quota.

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

    Pros

    The pay was above average for the Charlotte Metro area. The agents also received compensation for using their own cars in order to conduct business.

    Cons

    The position was by contract. As an agent I was told that the contract would "most likely" be renewed in January. There was no warning as to the end of the contract. One day my manager called me up to let me know that the contract wasn't being renewed for my area and I was immediately let go. Position only lasted 5 months...

    Job gives you freedom and flexibility to plan your day. It is a bir stressful but a good job.

    They could have cut training in half. I could have learned everything in 2 days instead of a week.

    Advice to Management

    Love my manager. All the managers have realistic expectations which is nice.

    Pros

    Home office is based in Denver, Colorado and they seem to be o.k. Worked closely with HR and was pretty streamlined. Pay was very good considering it was part-time and the job seemed to be pretty easy. Was in office alone most of the time. If you can work being unsupervised, organized and possess good time management skills, you will love the job.

    Cons

    It seems there is a large turnover of local managers/directors

    Advice to Management

    Leadership should continue to be consistent and give reps a longer chance (longer than a month) or be more thorough in hiring.
