    You get to learn from people with alot of experience in marketing and business. when it comes to the pay they are very generous and really understand how to teach in a way that works best for you. Overall it was a great company to work for and I'd recommend to all who want to get a step up on life and they're career!

    They will try to push you out of your comfort zone so be ready, but it's so worth it.

    Pros

    An excuse to wake up early.

    Cons

    If I could give this job less than 1 star, I would. You go into the interview thinking that you are getting interviewed for a management/marketing position when in all reality, you are being hired to stand in Costco from open to close (typically 10 am-8 or 9 pm). You are also required to be at the home office an additional 3 hours before that. Setting you up for an extremely long day. You are only making $12 per hour and hassling people to buy Direct TV. If you are lucky you will get 1-3 sales in a day, given the customer is gullible enough and can pass a credit check. Furthermore, I am almost positive that the "CEO" Weston, is paying people to write positive reviews on glassdoor and companies alike.

    I worked at Sunwire

    Pros

    You will learn a lot about how to be self sufficient and watch out for yourself.

    Cons

    It’s a pyramid company in the sense that you work hard doing grunt work for a long time, you finally get good at it and start making money and then you have to move to a new territory (with no financial assistance), set up your own group and work without much help. Most will fail because there is not enough training, manpower, financial assistance in the form of seed money to get your new group going. When you aren’t working fast enough to make money for your home base office, they will close your market and leave you stranded wherever you were sent to work. You will be set up to fail. Your boss (Westin) doesn’t care about you. Be careful. Also, 95% of the positive reviews are “fake” reviews that Westin pays people to write for him to make him look good. Be careful!!!!
