Executive Account Manager (Former Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – August 3, 2017
Expected to do all of your own research to generate leads. very little training and instruction. high energy. given time to research companies at work however it is short and if call numbers are low then research time is cut.
Account Sales Executive (Former Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – May 15, 2017
Lots of cold calling, 150 calls a day minimum. Its good to help build skills for real jobs but very few people actually made money there and most of it was from repeat customers. Closing the deal seemed impossible most days but the atmosphere was fun and relatively relaxed. I enjoyed the people I worked with but didn't care for the job itself very much.
Account Executive (Current Employee) – Portland, OR – October 19, 2015
The job is just over minimum wage but they draw you in with commission. They make it sound like it will be a breeze. Parking is 11 dollars a day and you are cold calling, lying to people to squeeze out info on higher ups and then harassing these people to get a sale. You get hung up on a lot and the managers make it out to be your fault. I talked with the people that had started before me and it had been 4 months and only one of them had made a sale and weeks had passed since that sale and he was back to being hung up on. They do not happen consistently so the commission is really not as good as its made out to be especially when you're forking out that much for parking.
Account Executive (Former Employee) – Milwaukee , Wis – November 14, 2014
I was discriminated against, and not given the opportunity to fully explore my potential there. I had leads, and sales taken from me by the management staff, and was terminated before I could protest the situation. This was not a good place to work.
Team Lead (Current Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – June 3, 2014
I started with the company a little more then a year ago and have been recently promoted to Team Lead. I was able to accomplish this through the help of my GM, DOS and Sales Managers. They coached and taught the true ways to become a successful salesman. The motivation and guidance we hear every day has made this job exciting, adrenaline fueled, fun and most opportunistic for my career path in sales and in life.
Overall: This has been the best opportunity and a great environment to work for. Learn the Sales trait/skills from Professionals that give their own time to help you whenever needed. Definetly a versed and dedicated staff.
Helpful enviroment, Positive co-workers, Great Location, PingPong Table, Great Leadership, Weekends Off, Promotes within the company
Not the best company to work for, but they give you a chance
Account Executive/Sales Manager (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – June 11, 2013
I knew nothing about Golf and started selling corporate hospitality to the PGA Championship, Final Four and Superbowl. It would be a good company if management would pay their bills on time, and stop telling clients that they have a 5 star venue, instead of a 2 star dump!
Unless you like cold calling all day every day, pass on this "opportunity"...
Account Executive (Former Employee) – Chicago – September 1, 2012
This is a good job for people who prefer to hide behind the phone and have some very thick skin. IF you are able to get past secretaries and administrative assistants (and don't be fooled - they all have caller ID and know a cold call coming from a mile away), chances are it is only to humor the person on the other end. Of the thousand or so calls I had made, I was able to pitch 10 people, 4 of whom I had personal connections prior to taking this position. You are usually calling the same company as the guy at the desk next to you, which makes for an awkward conversation.
Management at the time was a joke and full of colorful stories about how great the company is. Its been a few years since I made the decision to leave on my terms, and hopefully management has improved. I can tell you that the reason this company is constantly hiring is because the position isn't worth the pay. Most of those that were there on the first day with myself were gone within the month (and the best part, if you don't work a full month you get ZERO pay).
m-f schedule, no weekends or holidays
packages were way overpriced, management is only looking to cover themselves
Account Executive (Former Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – July 2, 2012
Typical day consisted of coming into the office and get right on the phones to call the companies and tell them about the sports packages we had available for their company and top clients. I learned that when dealing top level executives they are all about business and getting the business out the way is most important. In that time you can build rapport while discussing. Small talk is not important to them off initial meeting. Management and co-workers were both enjoyable for the short time I was employed there. The hardest part of the job was dealing with the administrative assistants while trying to contact the top level executive of a particular compnay.
