Account Manager, Denver, CO - March 7, 2014
First off, to start off with the Cons, you are expected to work 9-9.5 hours a day, and during the day on Saturdays. When you are hired, they tell you you have two options, you will either make 100% commission or 300 base pay plus partial commission, whichever is more at the end of the week. Turns out, you have to make a 4 sale minimum a week to qualify for the 300 base pay and 20-25% commission. Over the course of a month I was only paid around 350 (this included the 50 for the first week of a week long training and the additional 100 bonus for making it past training) and had to speak to the President about getting the rest of what I was owed for the many sales I made. It was another month after I stopped working there, until I was paid the rest of what I was owed. I personally feel that if I had not said anything about the discrepancy with my pay, I would not have been paid. The only pros I can note is that they give you the training and mentorship you need to have the skills to do door to door sales. Everyone is supportive of one another and there is no competition for the top spot because everyone can become a leader and move up, you can pretty much work at your own pace. The people are great and there are get togethers outside of work to get to know one another personally. Great team atmosphere. I'd just say that they need to be more upfront with exactly what the job and pay entails. Also, future employees, if you are reading this, ASK A LOT OF QUESTIONS BEFOREHAND!
