Human Resources (Current Employee) – Nashville – October 23, 2015
NFIB is a great company to work for. Everyone is very friendly and helpful. The most enjoyable part of the job was working alongside my colleagues and learning from them. There is work/life balance for me with this role- I came to this job from a large company that had NO work life balance- coming to NFIB was a breath of fresh air.
Work with enjoyable colleagues and have a chance to support the engine of the U.S. economy: small business

If you are interested in public policy, this is a great place to work and learn. I really enjoyed my former colleagues and am happy to report that many of them are still there supporting the small businesses that drive so much of our nation's job growth and innovation.

Sales Support Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) – Nashville, TN – December 16, 2014
I answer the phones, reaching between 60-100 calls a day, while looking up membership information to our ever increasing number of representatives. I answer emails, create excel spread sheets, and type documents in Microsoft Word.
This company promotes from within. My hiring manager was promoted to head of Sales Operations and the two ladies I answered the phones with were also promoted.
The manager that was later hired has a great management style. She is very efficient at communicating with us.
The hardest part of the job is explaining to a representative why they did not receive their bonus.
The most enjoyable part of the job is interacting with our field representatives.
Sales (Former Employee) – Livingston County, Ann Arbor – July 30, 2014
This is the hardest sales job you'll ever have. Be prepared for a lot of rejection. You're lucky to get one sale a day. I went some weeks without a paycheck and it wasn't due to the lack of effort. I learned what I was told and applied it, which was supposed to maximize my sales. This is a good company and has great values. Management is good, people you work with at a distance are awesome and give good tips. The lobbyist is spectacular, as well as his staff. But couldn't keep paying for a company w no check at end of week. So just remember this position isn't for everybody, even when driven to succeed!!
An excellent organization for the small business owner, but a hard way to make money for a salesperson. Most areas have been well covered/sold which severely limits your potential. This is not what you are told, "plenty of new prospects". You also have to pay the cost of driving around chasing people all day, which gets expensive.
