High turnover - Experienced Sales Rep
Outside Sales Representative (Former Employee) – Denver, CO – March 20, 2019
My reporting manager was never in sales and was a horrible resource. The company hires you in at a great base salary, but after a couple months that salary decreases, Our office salary started at $55k then decreased down to $16k after a year. The reason why you see them advertised so much on LinkedIn or Indeed is bc they are always hiring due to high turnover. The company is designed so they win and you lose They train you then tell you that you have all the tools to be successful. When that really isn't true at all. Unless you have a solid natural market, you will never succeed at this job. They'll bug you to sell insurance to all your friends and family and once you've exhausted your natural market, they make your life miserable to the point where you want to quit or they just fire you. I got hired on with about 6 other associates. After a year and a half everyone I had been hired on with either quit or were let go for under performing. And on top on that, I went to a sales training down in Orlando FL with about 50 other new hires from around the country. After making connections down there, it was really sad to see that nobody I was in training with works for the company any longer. Just be cautious before applying to this company. You'll sell to all your friends and family then you don't work there anymore. Again, they win and you lose. Once you've lost, you're quickly replaced by someone who sells to all their friends and family before getting let go. They bait you in with a high salary. Then once that salary decreases, you won't be making much off commission.
Great pay for the first few months
Not a long term company
