family owned business.
Account Executive (Former Employee), Fresno, CAMarch 25, 2015
This company has soo much potential if it were to meet the customers needs and satisfaction. Too many burned bridges. If they can give the employees the tools they need to be successful this company will grow dramatically

Valley Yellow Pages is a very good firm to work for. Employees are compensated well for their efforts in getting advertisers, especially if they meet or exceed their goals.

dying business
District Sales Manager (Former Employee), sacramento, caDecember 30, 2014
Pros: commission only position
Cons: a dying breed.
This company was a great company when the yellow pages was booming. Now that the internet is this biggest thing to locate business, then this is slowing dying. At this time I would not recommend anyone to work here. There are other companies that are growing with the times and this is not one of those companies.

Increasing the amount of revenue a business brings in.
Account executive (Former Employee), Stockton, CANovember 18, 2014
I learned how to help my customers retain their current customers and how to increase business. My typical day started early and would end late depending on the amount of accounts i had to handle. I enjoyed working with the different companies i had the opportunity to work with. I learned how to better myself and how to help them better their business in a variety of aspects. But the number one aspect was great customer service.

Account Executive (Former Employee), Fresno, CAMay 2, 2014
Pros: unlimited income and bonuses
Cons: a little too much micro managing and lowering the commissions every year
A typical work day at Valley Yellow Pages was challenging due to the fact that you always wanted to be the best in the office and you were competing with 40 other reps. to be the best! I learned how to be the best by working hard and diligently everyday to provide the customer service my clients expected and sell the best value added packages available. There were good managers and not so good managers. I was lucky to have a good one. I enjoyed working with most of my co-workers and got along with everybody. The hardest part of the joy was when we changed markets and some of our accounts overlapped with the other market and we had to figure out whose account it was. The mot enjoyable part of the account was the ability to make the most money I desired based on how hard I worked and I worked hard!

Fast paced highly competative sales environment.
Account Executive (Former Employee), Sacramento CAApril 22, 2014
Pros: high commissions
Cons: churn of sales people.
Wonderful training program before you start. High Commissions and bonuses. Lots of preparation for sales calls. Followup is critical. Making weekly sales goals was both an incentive and additional pressure. I enjoyed the employees and customers. I liked freedom to set up my work day. Job security was based on your weekly sales. Many people don't make it past the first month. I won numerous sales awards.

Account Executive (Former Employee), Hayward, CADecember 4, 2013
Pros: free lunch
Cons: short breaks
A typical day at work consisted of cold calling, premising, prepping client accounts, meeting with clients and various business owners to discuss their business goals, and daily office meetings. I gained thick skin while working here, also how to stay organized. The hardest part of the job was premising. The most enjoyable part of the job was meeting new people and building relationships with various business owners.
