This company branch in Akron Ohio in the sales department are really nice at first . If your a good salesmen they will let you in the door and sell for them and of course numbers are everything . A few things I did notice quite odd and law breaking about them, one they micro manage to a sick point. As in they only give you a phone to use which is tracked along with the iPad you use to sell which all your data and customer contacts, networking partners , even passwords are maintained. So when you decide to leave they have all the business you worked hard to achieve like referrals and good areas to sell in . Along with them controlling your paperwork , they also will tell you whatever they can to get you to sell for them . They promise business cards , which they won't give right off the bat or even at all - they promise proper gear to go in the field with - which took serveral months to even get a second shirt in hot weather or a coat in cold weather . I was brought in on the assumption if I hit my quota then the job would be good and I would be in a good spot . Instead , in the end I learned all they wanted was people to go out door to door in a way that they don't explain to you at the start of the job - even in pouring rain they expected this because the managers didn't care - and they wanted the ADVERTISEMENT - your not a salesmen in outside sales department - your a canvasser ! They just want you to go post their flimsy ad brochures with the company phone number on it on every door you can get to . Also , if you do put them as a past job experience on your résumé, and whatevermore... job your interviewing with at the time calls them , they will give a bad report on you - and that's on the case if you left on good terms or not ! It's still very illegal to do that and they do it . The main district manager is a great guy in this area but the ones below him like the sales managers - are complete scum . They will taunt you in the office and even go lengths outside the office. One day someone smart will get these guys on record and a huge lawsuit will be well deserved for them . Good money for sure but stay away from this one if you seek a long lasting career or any self respect for yourself . One of the most crooked companies I've worked for by a long shot and that's not the corporation itself - it's the people who run it in the area .less
