      Pros

      The people were all friendly and their system and training is simple enough to pick up rather quickly. The company has a very positive attitude towards their product and the products seem to work effectively so it is nice to sell something genuinely helpful to people.

      Cons

      They hire a lot of people during peak season and keep very few. This combined with keeping you on a training call list full of old and now uninterested leads makes it hard to put up the numbers they are looking for. However if you are a rather good salesperson you should make it.

      170+ calls a day. Hit the sales numbers or you’re out.

      Pros

      Awesome office in AZ. Diverse coworkers.

      Cons

      You will first start by reading a script over and over, and over again. You’ll call at least 170 people a day. You have to make sales. If you don’t, they let you go. Pretty straightforward. Not for everyone. I’d say the sales approach itself can be unethical but that’s just how sales can be. “Push the pain point.” To try and secure a deal.
