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

    Pros

    Great team of people to work with who help each other in difficult situations. Trainers were brilliant when they were available in the early stages. Good salary.

    Cons

    No support base from manager through lack of knowledge with the systems while always focusing on negativity never positives. Stuck in old ways no adaptability. Company seemed to be gradually diminishing month by month with more and more redundancy’s due to COVID or people just deciding to jump ship. Trainers were removed from position or let go from company very early into development so no support base.

    I worked at Yell full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Decent opportunity to make money even if you do not have much experience in sales. The training is good and the resources available are enough to give anyone a chance at success.

    Cons

    Extensive travel keeps you on the road quite a bit. The changes in the industry make it difficult to sell their core product, print advertising. The negative stigma in the market place of the company makes it difficult to overcome when calling on clients. The charge back system is unfair because it makes you not only a salesperson but get involved in collections as well which hurts relationships.
