    Positive Outlook

    I worked at TnT Direct Sales Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    You make your own hours and there are no commission caps, Management usually makes large bonuses readily available.

    Cons

    It is a commission based job so you need to come to terms with the fact that if you don't make any sales, you don't make any money.

    Advice to Management

    Clean house and get rid of poisonous employees even if they are good at the job. They are stopping you from having more able-minded employees.

    Pros

    you get tomake ur own schedule
    you have virtually no supervision
    There is no limit on the amount of money you can make

    Cons

    You could ask each member of management the same question and get a different answer from each one. No salary comission only

    Advice to Management

    Making sure that everyone is on the same page as well as making sure that everyone is held to the same standard

    Pros

    They do have good commission rates for each sale, and are willing to work with you as much as necessary to teach you to sell if you don't already have a style of your own.

    Cons

    The commission could be a small fortune per sale, but if you're selling for a cable company that has been in your area for over a decade, and everyone has already used their services and moved on, making that sale can be really tough. Biggest problem is the confusion over a 'contractor' and an 'employee'. TNT will hire you as a contractor, which means no hourly wage or benefits, but want to treat you as an employee- having mandatory unpaid meetings in other cities, giving sales quotas, etc. They are based in Houston, TX and so they say that is all based on Texas labor laws, but I was working in Florida, and as I understand it if you are required to drive to the nearest 'big' city to attend a mandatory meeting for several hours, in Florida you are entitled to some sort of compensation. And saying that 'if you want your paycheck, you can pick it up at the meeting' doesn't count!

    Advice to Management

    Be aware of labor laws in the area you're doing business, and compensate your Sales Representatives for their time and gas when you require them to use their personal vehicle to attend meetings 'out of town'.

    Pros

    Amazing pay for the amount of effort put in. Flexible schedule. A lot of tax write offs. Great educational system in place. A lot of support from management to get anything needed to complete the job.

    Cons

    Company has some negative flaws that need to be worked out by management. For some reason it feels as though the job is a dime a dozen job, even though it pays twice as much as the average U.S. citizen makes at an entry level position.

    Advice to Management

    Make the job feel as worthwhile as the pay.

    I worked at TnT Direct Sales Group as a contractor

    Pros

    Instructions are detailed
    Good app for reporting

    Cons

    Poor response when contacting area manager.
    Hard to schedule when supplies are not shipped properly.
    No way to track if they received your pay/invoice unless you contact area manager and hope they respond.
