Good Comision deadend job
Telecommunication Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  Sacramento, CAOctober 4, 2017
The hardest part of the job was the amount of production accepted from each employee and the volume of outgoing calls made daily. The most enjoyable were the somewhat generous bonus and commissions. I have learned a lot from their and management staff.
Pros
Oizza and prizes.
Cons
Six days a week job.

Great products, tons of driving due to HUGE coverage area (multiple states)
Independent Contractor (Sales) (Former Employee) –  West Valley City -sales were done at clients homesSeptember 25, 2017
Marketing great products, but the driving is crazy and many of the 'prequalified' lead appointments bombed out. Meaning people were not home, or only 1 of 2 home owners were there.
Pros
Great compensation opportunities
Cons
Distance traveled, and only given 1 lead at a time. You have no idea where you will be going next.

Work/Life Balance is Bad
Sales/ Lead Installer (Former Employee) –  Portland, ORSeptember 16, 2017
The only problem that my teammates and myself found was that the company required us to work 24/7 365 due to the nature of the work. They do not have paid time off or any sort of benefits. You'll constantly be traveling and will have no time to do anything else. Bad job for anyone with a family.

Adventurous and well paid
Field Marketing Representative (Former Employee) –  Omaha, NESeptember 4, 2017
This is great for anyone who do not have children under the age of 18. Traveling is involved and can be awesome if you like to travel. It is a strain on your vehicle. But the pay is great!
Pros
Hotel paid, food reimbursement and mileage on check! Fairs to enjoy and people to meet!
Cons
Traveling for hours and weather ; not family friendly

Primitive Work Culture
Expo Lead Generation (Former Employee) –  Minneapolis-Saint Paul, MNAugust 28, 2017
Was hired for expo work. Part of the income is based on leads generated. Without any pre-conversation, sales manager stood next to me in booth and took lead after lead after lead. Money right out of my pocket. No splits. No "Talk to John -- he'll get an appointment set with you." Just leads taken directly away.

How do you build a team of disgruntled sales people? Take leads directly away from them.
Pros
Paid for downtown parking.
Cons
Cave-Man sales management culture.

Interesting, optimistic work envirement
Telemarketer (Former Employee) –  Rancho Cordova, CAAugust 26, 2017
When you arrive there you usually have a minute to say hi to your coworkers, but once everything gets started expect to be pretty busy, I definitely learned a lot of telecommunication skills from this job, it can also help you manage stressful and or embarrassing moments, The part i loved the most about this place, and the support and team like environment, everyone cheers each other on, and they have a system where you are rewarded for your good work, when you get a sale, and they announce your name in the middle of your shift, and everyone cheers you on, it really encourages you to do your best, i completely approve of how they run the place, i believe more employers should have a positive system like this, it can prevent confidence problems and hostile work situations. figuring out how to appeal to a customer, especially an angry one can be very difficult, but I would have to say, pronouncing some people's names within the matter of a second must have been the most difficult part of the job, if you mess up someones last name then you ruin their attitude for the remainder of the job and that is not very good business.
Pros
Great environment, great reward system.
Cons
can be temporary based on work progress.

its changed over years of new managment,not good
Appointment Setter (Former Employee) –  Sacramento, CAAugust 9, 2017
I found the job rewarding years ago...they still only pay minimal wages. Bonus are only reachable by senior reps. Things changed for the worst, they no longer have a mid day shift, management isnt helpful,or encouraging. Vulgar and Explicit Music Blasting on speakers while trying to contact future costumers. work place and employees look like a homeless camp. no dress code.
Pros
nothing
Cons
everthing

Great money, management needs work
Marketing Director - Sales (Former Employee) –  West Valley City, UTJune 2, 2017
The money that could be generated was great. The travel ended up being too much because you were generally sent out to a place as a 1099 contractor paying for your own lodging and food with generally horrible leads. If you were able to stay in town that helped a lot.
Pros
Money
Cons
Travel, leads, management

Call Center Specialist (Former Employee) –  Gold River, CAApril 23, 2017
This was a fun and fast paced environment. Management was positively motivating. and were continuously offering additional incentives to inspire their teams. There was only one request and that was for us ti accomplish the goals set for the day, which were reasonable and achievable with the desire.

cut throat
Marketing Director, Rocky Mountain Region (Current Employee) –  Denver, COApril 6, 2017
takes advantage of people. Out dated marketing material. Managers lie about everything. Takes forever to get paid and when you do it is shorted. Average person lasts 3 weeks if that.

Horrible Place to Work
Accounting (Former Employee) –  Rancho Cordova, CAFebruary 17, 2017
Typical Day at Work: No Support

What I learned: People are very shifty and lie a lot, they also pretend to have experience they don't have. Mainly, from the accounting dept.

Management: Very Poor

Workplace Culture: Horrible

The Hardest Part of the Job: Having to be there

Most Enjoyable Part of the Job: Leaving for the Day

Nice place if your ready
Telemarketers (Former Employee) –  Sacramento, CASeptember 20, 2016
This job is a fast pase and no drama kind of telemarketing job. My time there was so drained and if you can't get how things work ,they don't show you how they just fire you. Others say its a good place to get fast money. But if your looking for long term this is not the place
Pros
Fast money
Cons
Not enough time to learn the job

Cut throat
Appt Setter (Former Employee) –  Gold River, CAMarch 1, 2016
One or two managers are awesome but that doesn't make up for the overall experience. Messed up my paycheck almost every week and constantly had to make sure i was paid for everything. Even sales and hours. Made more working 3 days a week at $8hr than 5 days a week @ $10. Greed is 90% if the motivation of this company and when they are under pressure so are you. Which wouldn't be bad but the owner makes $1000s of dollars of a good appt and has the audacity to come in and offer $1 a lead/appt. Like really?
Pros
Hours/managers are flexible bonuses good when you actually get paid for them
Cons
Indescrepencies on check consistently. Constantly have to check if you were paid for everything
