Good commissions paid
Account Executive/Sales (Former Employee) –  Midland, TXSeptember 24, 2016
Overall an OK company to work for. 100% commission so you have to work your butt off to sell a product that most people find obsolete. The TX region VP is not at all a pleasure to work for, only concerned with numbers.

Well run company that was family oriented
Receivables Specialist (Former Employee) –  Pittsburg, KSOctober 19, 2015
Excellent place to work. Daily calls, weekly & monthly goals to be met for the bonus program. The department knowledge grew from just making required calls to researching customers, locating customers, and making payment arrangements on their accounts.
Pros
Challenging. Flexability within receivables department for family functions.
Cons
Noise from large office and everyone speaking while trying to speak with customers on the phone.

Old school
Outside Sales (Former Employee) –  New MexicoAugust 6, 2015
Owner made a small fortune in the heyday of yellow pages. Paid very well back then, but when the internet came up, was not willing to change with the times and cast aside 20 year employees, despite talk of how the company was "family."

Unrealistic goals in some cases by working harder not smarter. No room for modern thinking. One African American and one Latino in the whole organization of hundreds of people.

Very exciting and challenging work atmosphere
Account Executive (Current Employee) –  Lubbock, TXDecember 29, 2013
This small company has the knack of helping small businesses find much success through traditional yellow pages advertising. Their training is great. There is a great support staff. The compensation plan is fair.
A typical work day includes calling on and up-selling existing clients for 1/2 of the day. Then the other 1/2 of the day is dedicated to finding new clients. When the plan if followed, it is successful.
I've learned to keep walking through doors. The more times I walk through those doors, the greater possibility of success! The hardest part of the job is the constant travel. But the most enjoyable part of the job is why I have enjoyed this job so much ..... I have the opportunity to help my customers make a whole lot of money because I can help them understand how effective advertising positively impacts their businesses.
Pros
Good Compensation. Flexibility.
Cons
Travel. Travel. Travel.

Solid well managed company
Director of Sales (Former Employee) –  Lubbock, TXNovember 15, 2012
I managed all of Texas and New Mexico for this print and internet marketing company. A typical day started with reviewing the performance of the sales office from the previous day. I worked with the management staff of each office to ensure we had a solid plan to hit the weeks objective and to ensure that plan was executed. Work with the executive team to plan overall strategy to grow the company.
