I worked for this company for about a month and a half and it is a complete waste of your time. I submitted a resume on a Saturday and they emailed me right away setting up an interview...first sign that it was a scam. In the first interview it took a whole 10 mins and they gave little information about the job and what it entailed. The second interview is where they take you out on the "field," meaning they drive you to shopping centers and they make you walk door to door to businesses trying to sell Verizon products to business owners.
They say you are a sales consultant in reality you are a salesman with a fancy title, you don't even get a business card to leave with the business owners. You are out in the field for about 8 hours or at least up until 5 or 5:30 depending on where your territory is. Once you get back to the office you have to fill out paperwork on how you're day went. Finally, once Ken the boss talks to the person who you went out with, he then decides if they are willing to hire you and trust me they hire everybody and anybody! You go through a week of training in my opinion isn't enough and then you are put to the test and given your own territory and leads and they expect you to see 40-50 doors A DAY in the heat, rain and wind. You eat your lunch inside your car and you work out of your car everyday. They do not reimburse you for your gas or mileage. I was out on my own for 3 weeks and put over 3,000 miles on my car. If you are new to the company they will give you a territory that is awful and give the people who have been there longer the territories that are easy deals i.e., selling FIOS.
You get into the office at around 7:30 for team activities which were completely pointless and served no purpose whatsoever. They say they use the activities to help overcome objections that you may face that day but the scenarios they give you are by far the easiest and simplest ones possible. You don't leave the office until around 9 or 9:30 or later if Ken is having one of his so called "inspiring and motivational" meetings where he does all the talking and rubs his wealth in his employees faces. Granted I am sure he worked very hard for his money and he is a great guy but I do not need to sit in a chair for 2 or more hours listening to him blabbering on how awesome his life is when I'm there spending money to work. And don't bother going out on a "team" with someone in the office...they will rip you off! Unlike previous statements, it is not mandatory that you go to team night or on business trips. However, I did attend a business trip and it was a waste of my time. First off you would think since the company has such a high success rate at making money they would put you up in a nice hotel room. We stayed in a Motel 6 that had no internet, no breakfast and was in the worst part of town. We didn't even stay in the city we were supposed to be going to so that meant we had to drive 20 miles or more in awful traffic to the destinations we were given to. Since some people did not have cars we had to drop one another off at their place and pick them up before we went to our territory, wasting more gas and time than needed.
This company is not a company that you would want to work for. Yes, the people there are great, well at least some of them, such as Stephanie and Ken. But some of them would have no problem stabbing you in the back to get ahead. Do not work for this company, you will be spending more money than you are earning. You will not even make minimum wage if you include the gas you put into your vehicle and the hours you work. Even if you choose the salary base which is only 350 dollars a week, divide that around 50 hours you work, you will only be making 7 bucks an hour and thats excluding gas.
