you're independent and get to practice sales, interviewing, and training skills. Owner and people in the company are very nice, It is just a very difficult type of sales to do.
its all commission based, no hourly or salary pay. Its door to door sales. Often very long days (10 hours) and work on Saturdays. If you do not get any sales then you made nothing and those days are frustrating. They hire literally anyone and start you immediately so you can start making the people above you money. They say it is not a pyramid scheme but the only way to advance in the company or "become a manger" is to have employees underneath you. I was lied to in my interview and took the job and I will be doing my research more in the future.
Advice to Management
Give some sort of hourly wage. Tell people it is door to door sales and don't sugar coat it.
I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Zone Marketing (Grand Rapids, MI (US)) in February 2016.
I applied online, thinking this was a marketing opportunity. Within 2 hours I received a phone a phone call. The recruiter didn't even ask me any relevant questions about my qualifications and asked me to go to their office for an interview the next morning. She didn't describe the roll at all other than saying, "The roll says entry level, but really its for someone looking to move up in the company. You will receive cross training in HR, marketing, sales and management.". When I looked on here for reviews I saw that you are a glorified door to door salesman. I called back the recruiter and she stated, "That is only for the training portion but you have the chance to move up later in your career"
Reasons for Declining
It seems like the kind of job a high school graduate should be working, not a college grad
