    I worked at Smart Circle full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I can't think of many, it will teach you very quickly what not to look for in a job right out of college

    Cons

    Long hours, no compensation for travel. Difficult sales minimums that if you miss you make less than mininmum wage for the hours worked. Very hard to turn a profit in an older market

    Advice to Management

    Be honest with your employees, ,let them know there is money to be made if you have the 'knack' for selling. but don't pretend it's more than just a quick sales pitch repeated ad nauseaum day in day out

    I have been working at Smart Circle full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    -Learn how to communicate and present well to people -Gives you the opportunity to manage and train others -Can be extremely rewarding if you work your ass off

    Cons

    -Can be long hours including weekends -It's sales so always be wary of the markey

    Advice to Management

    If the company could ever offer base + commission it might be easier to recruit people

    I worked at Smart Circle full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    If you don't mind lying to people, forcing them to do something they don't want, abd just happen to be an outstanding one in a million sales person there is great earning potential(exmaple1k+ weekly) Also the training is great and it's free and most the employees that stay longer than a week are pretty cool people

    Cons

    Long Hours about 50+ per week If you don't make enough commision you only get paid for 32-40 hours at minimum wage which is almost every week and the boss will probably fire you for not being profitable You are doing face to face shady marketing, I was selling direct TV inside bestbuys, frys, and walmarts, depending on what store you are woking in the sale prices of direct TV will vary making it harder or even harder...

    I worked at Smart Circle full-time

    Pros

    They will brain wash you in all the right ways that you need to get ahead as an entrepreneur.

    Cons

    You will work your ass off, and you are likely going to be lied to, or made to believe something that is not true.

    I worked at Smart Circle full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    They will hire anyone Good to get sales experience right out of college The products they sell are cool

    Cons

    The hours you work are horrible They will say you make commission but you really make minimum wage They promise you management in 6-10 months, not possible You have no time to have a life You have to stand on your feet for 10.5 hours straight All the companies have names that wont link you to SMART CIRCLE

    Advice to Management

    Be real with the employees find a new way to pay people schedule better so people can have a life get people to management if you say you will

    Former Employee - Sales Representative in Tarrytown, NY

    I worked at Smart Circle

    Pros

    Developed persistent sales skills, learned the ins of the sales industry, earning potential on you, ability to separate yourself from others after a single day in field

    Cons

    no benefits, no salary, long hours, high transportation costs, stressful atmosphere at times, sketchy management

    Advice to Management

    I understand that you are under a lot of pressure but respect all of your employees. Stop being so misleading and making everyone think they can one day own their own company. Be real and maybe you won't get fired like 90% of new managers do.
