    I have been working at Z57 full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Overall a great company to work for. Job training is excellent, culture is strong and leadership is focused on employees and their growth. I enjoy coming to work each day and I enjoy the challenge of the job. The commission potential in sales is very high if you are willing to put in the effort.

    Cons

    Sales and Service isn't always on the same page which can be frustrating at times for employees and customers. The product actually does work and there are plenty of good product reviews to prove that, but it does need an update or refresh. I also notice that at this company that employees that are not good at sales or not willing to work constantly complain or make excuses.

    I worked at Z57 full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Don’t work here. It’s a revolving door of employees. Terrible environment, management does nothing but micromanage and lie, poor culture, they dangle the raise carrot in front of you forever but never deliver, the people they hire are some of the worst people I’ve ever met. Do yourself a favor and find somewhere else before this place crushes your soul.

    Cons

    Horrible management. Forced to stay late. People steal.

    I worked at Z57 full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Benefits, schedule, training. This job will help you a lot with training that is the main Pro. They want you to succeed. Great culture.

    Cons

    If you like cold leads, cold calling apply here. This job is not easy.I recommend anyone who who likes to an extreme challenge to go ahead and work here. It wasn’t for me, but I did learn a lot being here for the time being. I hated recalling real estate agents after they told me someone already called them 6 times in the year to leave them alone.

    Pros

    They gave us a candy bar to write this review.

    Cons

    They will hire ANYONE (no drug test or background check). Cold calling people that don’t want to talk to you and trying to sell them a product that doesn’t work.. it has HORRIBLE reviews with the BBB and all over the internet. Management is inexperienced and very immature. They use very pushy sales tactics and have a very sketchy operation going on. Also 2 toilet bowls for 50 dudes. Every morning is like waiting in line for the porta potty at a charger tailgate..except the porta potty smells better

    Pros

    The training is amazing, you can go to any other sales job and do great.

    Cons

    The platform is horrible, so the reviews are terrible, which makes it very hard to sell. They say it's easy to make $100,000 a year, yet noone there even gets close to that, and they discriminate on who gets the best leads.

    The managers are patient about the progression of your sales skills. The people that work here are welcoming and encourage you to do better every day. Jack Markham has turned the culture here into something special.

    Some of the managers can be aggressive in pushing you to get better

    I have been working at Z57 full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    There is an amazing energy on the Z57 sales floor and management works hard to create fun spiff ($$$) games and incentives to work hard and be productive. There are uncapped commissions and top producers make 6 figures. There is a ramping period, so new sales reps have a great opportunity to make money in their first couple of months. The training is incredible and if you follow their sales process you will make money. We also do really fun company hosted events and many employees enjoy weekly happy hour after work!

    Cons

    None really, but if you don't want to put hustle and grind, you won't make very much. I actually like the hours, because I get off early enough to enjoy my afternoon, but if you aren't a morning person it may take a few weeks to adjust to the early hours.

    I worked at Z57 full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Learning what inside sales is really about Benefits and 401k match

    Cons

    Do yourself a favor and don’t work here. Apply anywhere else. The vibe is like being at an east county bar on a Saturday or like going on a tinder date and getting cat fished. Place radiates the weirdest vibe. The culture there is the most cringey thing ever. Don’t get me started on the warehouse they operate out of....that place will be in my nightmares. Another thing you should ask yourself before following up on their “70,000/year salary” (bs) ad, do you honestly care about some old lady in Arkansas social media? And do you have the will to try and convince Janet from Nebraska as to why social media can elevate her business to millions? Those are the conversations youre having from 530am to 330pm. You’ll leave with the itellas voice ringing in your head only to wake up the next day to do the same stuff with the same hopeless people. Just a note for anyone reading this, you want to surround yourself with ambitious people not people who are content or trapped like the many people who work here. That VP is something else too. This just dawned on me, working here is like a scene out of Napoleon Dynamite. Let that sink in.
