Fun energetic place that still gets great results while enjoying work
Account Exectutive (Current Employee), Mahopac, NYFebruary 25, 2014
Pros: the effort i put in reflects my results, money that can be made in sales, learning opportunities, travel opportunities, networking opportunities, growth opportunities (internal and external), what i learned above
Cons: hours can add up
Typical day is great. Come in in the afternoon and usually start with some light convo with co-workers or 1 on 1 meetings with a co-worker to learn my skills/practice them. Then we go into meetings, company announcements and workshops to continue to learn and practice our skills. Go meet with clients in the afternoon and then return in the evening to – more... wrap things up and get prepared for the next day.

I have learned so much - public speaking, self motivation, mentoring others, coaching others, training others, sales principles/techniques, critical conversations, effective communication skills, being responsible for myself and others in the work place, and time management to name a few.

Management is great - really happy by the way they do things. I cant say I have had better "coaches" - they are very invested in seeing the employees of the company do great.

Co-workers are great - competitive but not cutthroat. Fun and lots of energy, great team building games/exercises/events (sporting events etc).

Hardest part of the job - managing your attitude - if you have a bad attitude you will do poorly in sales, good attitude and the sky is the limit.

Most enjoyable part - that I get to work with people I consider my friends. Never thought I would work in an environment that doesnt really seem like work – less

Overall Good Experience - learned a lot
Corporate Trainer (Former Employee), Mahopac, NYFebruary 9, 2014
Pros: great training, opportunities to travel, some fun bonuses, fun team building exercises, great leadership learning/development, fun environment
Cons: nothing specific, but like any job, nothing is perfect. sales can be a challenging industry/position
- Typical day was great - I would come in and chat with co-workers and get prepared for my day. We would have meetings and trainings and then go meet with our clients. We would return in the evening to enjoy what we did that day and just get ready for the next. It was a great balance of in and out.

- I learned a great deal - about public speaking, – more... dealing with customers, product training, sales training, leadership training/development, DISC personality training, I got a bunch of great practice and training on actually training other people.

-Management was great, fir but fair, understanding and reasonable but still easy to follow, great leaders.

-Co-workers were great, not going saying I was "best friends" with everyone, but certainly got along with everyone and really enjoy some of the relationships that were built.

-Hardest part is certainly dealing with different types of customers/clients - but once you have seen a bunch its like anything else, it becomes easier. Outside face to face rejection can be tough

-Most enjoyable is either the A) daily instant gratification that is available or B) helping others and seeing them do well – less

This company is not worth it keep away if your smart
Door to door sales (Former Employee), Mahopac NYDecember 17, 2013
Pros: i left the company
Cons: everything, the pay, the hours, the liars you work with!!
This company is full of lies. They don't tell you the truth until you have already wasted your time and money. I hope that people stay away from this company for your own safety and that you don't waste your time and your money. I was looking for work and I thought that this was going to be a great opportunity but I found out the hard way that this – more... company is not what they said they were. You have to go door to door in the hopes that someone buys your produce and if they don't then you only make $40 a day, that's nothing. $40 a day to go door to door in 10 degree weather. I don't think so. You would think that since your working for Verizon you would at least make real money, but you don't. The people who train you take you into homes which is not allowed essentially putting you at risk. They don't care for your safety at all they just want to make a sale!! All I can say is that i'm glad I learned what this company stands by before it was too late, do your self a favor and stay away from companies like these. – less

Entry Level Technician (Former Employee), Mahopac, NYSeptember 5, 2013
Although this company promotes moving forward within the ranks, it's hard to imagine doing so. You are basically a door to door salesmen and your life relies on whether people are interested in buying your product right at that moment. There is no security. The human resources department is fantastic, though. The company showed true interest in wanting – more... to make their employees feel welcome. Had it not been because of distance and relatively close to door to door salesmenship, I would've stayed longer. – less

Extremely diffacult very few stay in the position
Account Executive (Former Employee), Mahopac, NYAugust 3, 2012
Pros: excellent opportunity is a possability.
Cons: very few will ever see that opportunity.
Extremely diffacult and high number of hours 60+ very few stay with the the organization either because they don't make enough impulse door to door sales or they simply have had enough. Management is weak I learned the basics of impulse door to door sales. The hardest part about the job is the sixty or more hours a week and the miles you walk often – more... times earning no money while drving as many as one hundred miles a day going to and from your territory. The most enjoyable part about the job was some of the peopel I worked with were fun to be around. – less
