    I worked at Zerin Business Consulting (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Friendly people, fun environment. Very similar to a fraternity or sorority. Opportunity to make a lot of money is definitely there.

    Cons

    Long hours (10+ daily) solely commission based cold calling (base plus commission option was a joke really), and very deceiving. They get you in and hope you like them enough that you will stick around even when you may not be making money. Also, I got a very "fake" vibe some from of the employees. Almost as if they were pretending to like you. I suppose it makes sense though being that in order for them to succeed they need people to do the dirty work.

    Advice to Management

    Just be honest with the people coming in. Keep up the positive atmosphere though. "You will be cold calling businesses door to door and creating your own leads." It means more than you know.

    I worked at Zerin Business Consulting full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    they are good at making you think its a legit job before you go "out in the field"

    Cons

    i quit after day one. i was told i would have a salary of xxxxx before commission and bonuses. there is no salary. you have a choice of a base salary and getting partial commission. i calculated the base and it was less than half what was in my offer letter. you basically go door to door in a certain zip code and ask people in small businesses, restaurants, gas stations, etc. if they want to sign up for t-mobile and leave their carrier. like you actually walk door to door regardless of weather.

    when i asked if this was a door to door job during my second interview, i was lied to and i was told it wasn't. this whole job is a lie. you aren't a consultant or an account executive, you are selling t-mobile on the streets. if you want to sell phone plans, please work at the actual stores instead.

    even my parents said to quit on my first day. i didn't need my hard-earned college degree for this foolishness. this is not a real job. no benefits, compensation, healthcare, 401k, etc. DO NOT WORK HERE PLEASE. EVERYTHING IS A SHAM.

    Advice to Management

    be honest and upfront about what the job entails and what the "salary" is. money strictly off commission is not a salary. please tell people what the actual job is and that they have to use their own gas money and travel all over northern va to sell phone plans that no one wants anyways.

    I worked at Zerin Business Consulting full-time

    Pros

    There are none. Commission based door to door marketing with an aggressive workload. No salary or base pay.

    Cons

    Everything about it. Read above. This is a pyramid scheme do not get fooled by the fancy title of the job position.

    Advice to Management

    Management should pay a employees a salary in order to attract real talent instead of scamming desperate recent grads who don't know better.

    Pros

    Interesting projects, smart colleagues and a comfortable workplace. You work with some very cool people and the leadership cares about your development. You may get coaching but you never get battered or belittled. The pay is decent.

    Cons

    Occasionally difficult work environment when presented with a difficult customer. Nothing to over the top though.

    Advice to Management

    The management consists of a team leader and the office manager. They are supportive of individual development and help you to reach your goal. Management will challenge you if you want to advance but it's always in the spirit of making you better to prepare you for the next role.

    Pros

    Loved the work environment! Mark Hoge is awesome and I am happy to have had the chance to work with him. I felt very comfortable at this company. Everyone is always fun and always challenging you to be the best you can be! Such a positive work environment! I had a great month and a half there, I learned a lot through my experience at Zerin.

    Cons

    Love the opportunity, it was just not worth going door to door for me. I didn't make much money at all in the time I was there. I also never had free time, always working.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing! :)

    Pros

    The People are very nice and friendly, BUT here again, they act cool because they want to use you for free.

    Cons

    EVERYTHING!!! Door-to-Door Sales regardless of weather conditions. 100% Commissions based and you can spend a week without earning anything because it is simply a rough job. You are expected to be at work from 10.30 am till 9pm everyday and you might still earn $0 at the end of your day. They make you think that you will open your own business in the near future and that the top management earns a 6 figure Salary: DO NOT GET FOOLED!!!! They are basically broke people in suits, That's all!

    Advice to Management

    Be honest towards your employees and tell them that fancy job title is just a DOOR-TO-DOOR Sales position with no Based Salary at all with no insurance, no benefits, no vacation.

    Advice to Management

    Pay employees higher commission and a base salary for all the sales. Tell them about walking door to door in the snow and 100 degree weather in the summer.
