Former Staffing Sales Rep Never Going Back!
Associate Director Business Development (Current Employee) – Houston, TX – August 26, 2016
I came from staffing industry sales so everything here is a Pro compared to that. They invest so much into us here; the sales training is actual training and it's comprehensive, you learn about the company, our services, the industries we work with, how to qualify business opportunities and close deals. You work directly with the most tenured and successful sales directors here and they teach and mentor you so you develop highly effective sales skills compared to staffing where they give you a marketing brochure to read on your first day and then tell you to get on the phones and sell something. The environment is so much more professional, we work with C-level client contacts so you learn how to have business conversations with CEOs. The Houston office is amazing, the benefits and perks are over the top but the best thing is the compensation plan. I had to work like a dog in staffing to get 100 contractors billing and my commission check was a joke on top of a low base salary and awful benefits. I put the same energy into selling here at alliantgroup where my base salary is higher than my base + commission in staffing and last year I made double that in commission AND I got a bonus at the end of the year that knocked me over, I didn't expect it and it was extremely generous. With what I earned last year, I was able to pay off my credit cards and buy a new car (BMW) and a house inside the loop. I'm on track this year to double what I did last year!
