    I have been working at Soren Inc.

    Pros

    The pay is great! The people are not only helpful but so much fun to work with. The product is not only easy to sell but its one that you can hold integrity when doing so. The owner shows sincere and genuine care for his employees and treats them as his equal. So far I have seen him deliver on what he says. The hours allow me to still have a time to take care of personal things and the location is perfect. The structure of the business is firm and gives you a sense of security. Here, hard work pays off.

    Cons

    Sometimes Soren offers the opportunity to all kinds of individuals regardless of their background work history or experience and not everyone does well. Ive not seen a structure of how they remove or no longer move forward with those individuals and sometimes it can affect the productivity of others.

    I worked at Soren Inc. full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The boss took us all out for drinks one evening. Order whatever you want, top shelf stuff. Be sure to drink up because you will not receive a paycheck or any other compensation.

    Cons

    They will not pay you. Keep in mind that you are working purely on commission. Their "business to business" thing means you will be going door-to-door in strip malls rather than houses. But it's the same exact thing. Going into the hood to try to convinve random people living their lives to switch cell phone plans.

    I worked at Soren Inc. full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Motivated atmosphere. I gained a lot of sales experience doing door to door sales and learning how to hustle.

    Cons

    Performance based industry! If you are someone who struggles to sale things than your income would be limited. This caused a lot of negative energy at times because a lot of people weren't making enough money.

    Pros

    Nice people. The CEO is a funny guy. Because there's business interests involved, team leaders will help you. Receptionist is a very kind person.

    Cons

    The biggest con is how commission is never mentioned in the interview process, as it's the only income you receive. That's why I made my title what it is. You can do everything by the book, be an amazing people person, and still walk away with nothing. This is an extremely risky job financially that doesn't offer any benefits such as health insurance. This is a job I'd recommend to people who have wealthy parents who are willing to support them while they do this. I did see one person get promoted but I don't even know if he was part of our department. Bothering people. It's understandable why people would not want to see you, but, there are some instances where you will serve as a punching bag for people. It's demoralizing enough to get no after no, but then your soul is crushed by people who treat you like filth. You can end up in a really bad, unsafe neighborhood. While walking around and selling the product, I saw quite a few shady things happen and felt kinda scared for a while. And this is as a guy! I can't imagine what some women might feel. This is especially an issue when you work those 11-12 hour days well into the night.
