Senior Account Executive (Current Employee), Chicago, ILJuly 24, 2015
Pros: great banking partners
Cons: high turnover in management.
BAMS was a great place for me to work with Bank partners and win additional business products with existing bank clients. BAMS gave me the opportunity to grow and become a very successfull sale rep. The training and technology was top of the line and are always on top of training the sales force. I was able to be self managed through the 5 years that I was employed and became top sales performer YOY, regardless of the 5 different managers that I had in the Chicago market.

VP - Merchant Business Consultant (Current Employee), Clermont, FLMay 31, 2015
This is a great company to work for. The compensation plan has been changed too often. If you do not sell a specific amount of a specific product, they will decrease your commission up to 50%

Fast paced and challenging
AVP Merchant Specialist (Former Employee), Richmond, VAMay 11, 2015
Pros: Wii in the break area, contests with great prizes
Cons: Training period does not prepare you for the floor experience
A typical day in the office was sitting in your cubicle taking in bound calls to sell credit card processing to merchants throughout the nation. It is a casual environment where learning is an on the job experience. Your are surrounded by co-workers who will teach you skills to perfect your pricing rationale and give you tips on how to become successful when selling over the telephone. You must be a quick learner and dedication is key.

The most challenging part of this job is closing a sale without a face to face interaction. Once you have solidified the sale you are no longer a part of the delivery.

I truly enjoyed the casual environment and the ease of bouncing ideas off of co-workers right from my desk. We would pass a ball around discussing our last calls and what we could have done better, more of, or differently. It was a fantastic team environment.

Training is not what the job contains
Merchant Services (Former Employee), Coral Springs, FLMay 11, 2015
Pros: Breaks, lunch and parties. Great Insurance
Cons: management does not know about working with the merchants
Training is about what the company does and how it is run. It has nothing to do when you get on the phone, working with merchants. They do not teach anything the merchants are calling about, billing, terminals, contracts, returns,exchanges.

Counter Productive
Small Business Solution Specialist (Current Employee), FLMarch 22, 2015
Pros: money
Cons: changing job duties and responsibilities
The job was great for the first year. Then they decided to change my job title responsibilities . The job I applied for and the one I ended up doing were completely different and non fulfilling. I went from a product specalist to an outside sales consultant who leads source were 90% self source. I never applied for that. The job went downhill after that. Compensation goals increased with very little company help towards reaching it. They want you to sale with old expired leads .

fun place to work
Terminal Re-Programmer (Former Employee), Spokane, WAFebruary 21, 2015
Pros: extra income for sales
I enjoyed working for this company, this was a type of job that you could earn more or less not by the hours you would work but by the sales you did. I would only work m-f 6-2 and if i made really good sales i could bring home money as if i worked 60 hours. They were very family oriented and understood every situation people have and would recommend any work for them.

I good company with potential however they lack professionalism and knowledge on how to run a company. They are not open to advice and do not care about their employees. By the way this is NOT Bank of America! Would be great if management was good and with better training.
