I have been working at Zones full-time for less than a year

Pros

I joined Zones from the campus hiring program and have had a great experience. The training is fantastic and I learn so much every day. Our partners are onsite throughout the week and provide custom training that I immediately put to use on the phones.

Cons

I'm in training a lot and it's hard to take time away from the phones.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

More formal training on actual selling skills ould be helpful.

    I have been working at Zones full-time

    Pros

    Co-workers are cool.. well most of them

    Cons

    Where do I start...
    First they will tell you that you can make $100k/yr when in reality you will make $35k if you are lucky... now thats your base. SPIFFS they will keep from you unless you can close at 12pts in margin..which you wont because you wont win the business from the hundreds of competitiors that are going out at 1 point margin. Then you wont get commissions because you went out at cost so you can get numbers on the board so management would stop brow beating you for 5 minutes.
    After months of cold calling burned out leads that hate zones or dont have working phone numbers anymore you MIGHT get rewarded with a coloring book and crayons. TRUE STORY.
    This goes along with the structured break times and juice boxes you get on Wednesday and Fridays.
    If you are inept at anything else.. and dont mind dialing for crayons and being fired when you cant sell -then apply at zones.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try being in sales for one day.. Good luck!

    I worked at Zones full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Consistent Hours, Free Stuff, and good way to collect money while looking for other opportunities.

    Cons

    Turn and burn telemarketing. They have a poor commission structure and in general a very unprofessional work environment. This job made me very depressed.
