Independent Sales Consultant (Current Employee) – Hampton, VA – February 6, 2018
A typical day working for this company can be very stressful. During the course of the day you are meeting with clients that have inventions and ideas that they want to get mass produced. Unfortunately this is easier said than done. As an Independent sales consultant I was in charge of a region of territory that brought in inventors from over 5 hours away to meet with them discuss the challenge in getting their product patent searched, marketed, and licensed without any promise to them that it would make it mainstream distributors. I learned the fundamentals of the invention submission and production and trade show industry. The hardest part of the job was helping the client to understand that we couldn't guarantee that this product would have a return on investment that they had in mind. Therefore, if you did not get their commitment you didn't get paid. The job was 100% commission based and many times on many days clients weren't able to commit because they were ignorant to the fact that it required money upfront to get their product in front of companies. The most enjoyable part of the job was getting the opportunity to meet individuals who had great ideas for needs that you never would have thought of yourself. Some inventions were even to technically advanced to understand or explain if you were not familiar with that industry or profession. The manager that I was under was making up to 20-30k$ a month and training for the position of Sales Manager in the Hampton Roads area. Training was literally on the job as you go and so there was very few moments for downtime and processingmore... due to the constant rush of a full day of real clients that she wanted to cash in on. Unfortunately, the money wasn't matching what I made in previous roles at all which caused me to shift gears after 4 months in this position.less
Able to create schedule, Some travel, high earning potential
No Benefits, inconsistent pay, commission based pay, minimal training
I really enjoyed this job, as InventHelp furnished me with an office to meet with clients to hear about their ideas or inventions. The company would email me a lead list every day, and I would schedule the customer visits to my office.
Great industry experience with fun and interesting projects
3D Designer & 3D Printer Technician (Former Employee) – Pittsburgh, PA – May 2, 2016
I was hired on to InventHelp as an intern initially, then took over the 3D Printer technician position. I was also a 3D artist for the design department. I worked with very friendly and knowledgeable people and I learned a lot in terms of product design. My managers were knowledgeable and experienced in their respective fields and they taught me a lot about the industry. There was a large work load, but that was really dictated by me, as I worked for piece rate when I did the 3D design.

Sales Consultant (Former Employee) – Creve Coeur, MO – January 15, 2015
You are given qualified leads, but you work on commission only. Strong sales experience is required. If you are OK with working only on commision, then this would be good for you. If you prefer a more steady income, this may not be the best place to work.
