My best friend worked for this company. The product itself is not bad, but they are incredibly cheap with their scouts, downright sleazy, and morally unethical with their scout hiring practices. Cheapness first. No salary, no benefits, they make you pay to travel for their training in Chicago. At a training event they wouldn't even pay for my friend's travel, baseball ticket, or even food at the game for God's sake, though they promised him the opportunity to get quality leads and make six figures. This was their spiel, I guess the blonde with the shapely buttocks wasn't around like with the first guy.  They neglect to tell you that their commissions are probably the lowest of any sales job ever. The majority of the clientele is middle to lower class, and thus these families choose the cheapest payment plan (80 dollars a month) so with a 13-18% commission rate, you are making less than 15 dollars for an hour and a half sale call, assuming you enroll them. At that rate, the enrollments you would need to make even HALF of what they say would be in the several hundreds, which is impossible.

Now to the sleaziness. The sleaziness quotient is extremely high. They promise you a certain amount of weekly set appointments in training, and my friend never received even half of what they promised. When he asked 2 weeks in as to why, they said there were a limited supply of appointments.  Their other digital "leads" are a joke. Picture a 16 year-old kid (not a parent) being bored and randomly filling out a survey (i.e. at a mall) writing "d**k Balls" as the parent's name. Those are the kind of "leads" they give you. They have no vested interest in seeing their scouts succeed, it's perfectly stated to be a " let's throw something against the wall and see if it sticks" kind of operation. They run through scouts like daily changes of underwear, basically a pyramid hiring scheme type of set-up. At the end just before my friend quit, he commented on how annoying it was to see the constant congratulations of first enrollments for new scouts go through the e-mail wires, at least 5 a week. Again, throwing something against the wall and seeing if it sticks. CLASSY. To top it off, something they don't even know, one of their "top guys" was a sports gambling degenerate who almost was thrown out of college, and it wasn't that long ago. Just shows that the sleaze rises to the top at NCSA.
