Pros: team nights, don't go in till work till 11am
Cons: 80 hour work weeks, commission based, pyramid scheme, dangerous at times
I took this job right out of college for my first entry level job. I was excited because everyone seemed really nice, and the opportunities seemed endless. You go out with your co -workers all the time, so in some respects it's still like college. The problem is when you actually get to the work itself.
It's a pyramid scheme...you get promoted based on how many people are on your team, and how much money they make going DOOR TO DOOR selling Verizon Fios. You work 6 days a week, typically 80 hours a week and it's a purely commission based job, so you get paid only by what you sell. You go Door to Door every day no matter how cold or hot it is, and you go to some of the scariest neighborhoods in Pittsburgh. It's not the most comfortable thing to do walking around with a shiny labtop in section 8 houses by yourself at 8:00 at night.
For some people, clearly it worked because they opened up their own offices. But at the end of the day, there were more people who failed then succeeded. And the ones who did open their own offices, look at all the terrible work they had to do to get there. SO not worth it. Since working there, I've had several interviews with companies who have heard of the bad reputation of this company, including one College Recruiter with a large Pittsburgh based Fortune 500 company who said that certain colleges are banning them from recruiting off their campus because they know what a scam it is. This is also affiliated with the company MMI down in southside if any of you have heard about them..they're even worse.
If you like to party, not know what your pay checks will be since they vary week to week, walk around for 6 hours a day going to strange peoples doors, work 80+ hours a week 6 days a week...then this company is for you.
If not, I'd stay as far away as possible.
