Entry Level (Current Employee) – New York, NY – October 22, 2014
The company is an expansion to New York City therefore there are a lot of opportunities to grow. It's a sales position to begin with but there are ways to advance. No promotion is guaranteed, but they are available.
The coworkers are the best part. The environment is fun and light. Management actually seems to care about the employees.
I have no experience as a recent graduate so finding something entry level was necessary. I have learned a lot.
travel opportunities, good environment, fun co-workers, not being stuck in an office all day

And patience and fortitude. Management isn't exactly organized and you don't really learn what you should've been told until too late.
This is not the place to go if you are seriously looking for full-time work, unless you have the mentality to consider this as an internship without the school credits for at least two weeks. Even then, it is questionable how much of a benefit the experience in its entirety will be.
no healthcare, base salary, commission pay has a two week delay, bonus of $200 is only if you net more than $500 a week at entry-level
Account Executive (Former Employee) – Mahopac, NY – August 3, 2012
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 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.
Fun energetic place that still gets great results while enjoying work
Account Exectutive (Current Employee) – Mahopac, NY – February 25, 2014
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 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
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
Corporate Trainer (Former Employee) – Mahopac, NY – February 9, 2014
- 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, 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
great training, opportunities to travel, some fun bonuses, fun team building exercises, great leadership learning/development, fun environment
nothing specific, but like any job, nothing is perfect. sales can be a challenging industry/position
This company is not worth it keep away if your smart
Door to door sales (Former Employee) – Mahopac NY – December 17, 2013
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 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.
i left the company
everything, the pay, the hours, the liars you work with!!
Entry Level Technician (Former Employee) – Mahopac, NY – September 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 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.
