Pros: money and benefits for a year or two, experience developing b2b sales skills with businesses not in the market for payroll
Cons: zero job security after two years, 13 plus hour days, 1 and half days vacation every six months, blackout months with no time off allowed, door to door sales to companies not in market, drops of chachki to bribe people into meetings
Ignore the recruiters and the managers because they are the ones that stand to make money if you get hired. Here is the deal. If you have a fluid life, and are willing to relocate thousands of miles away, feel free to work here. All reviews about crazy hours, no time off, but incredible compensation are true. However, do not plan to stay put in your current location. Once you succeed for a couple of years, you will be asked to relocate to manage an office a thousand miles away. If you decline, your next option will be to travel for weeks/months on end to territories outside of your current state for sales work. If you refuse that, good luck keeping your job. People that do not move up to manager, and refuse to travel across the country for long periods of time to expand on territories far away, will definately be let go. Don't believe me? Go on Linkedin and try to find sales reps or exec reps that remained employed in their original location for more than 5 years. 870 employees and you may find 1 or 2 people that were not let go or did not move on. Why do they do this? Well to start, you make 50k. In a few years? 120k! Why pay someone triple the pay for cold calling and canvassing when you can use your world renowned training to get young employees up to speed quickly and pay 50k for similar results. It's all about profit margins and turnover to conserve on the most expensive part of the business- payroll. It is a brilliant business model but they should be up front about this at the interview process. If you are looking for job security, longevity in your current location, look elsewhere.
