Pros: the name recognition. filling a real need for people.
Cons: tremendous amounts of unpaid work requirements. drastic lead reduction, and major changes to our employment contracts and compensations/benefits.
The following is strictly concerning CORPORATE.
*My resume outlines a typical day in detail.
*I learned that Corporate become a very high stress job, demanding countless working hours for which a "commissioned" sales person makes no money. Too bad because I loved selling Security!
*It began to seem like the upper level Corporate management lost touch – more... with reality by demanding more unpaid activities while reducing benefits. Although my local manager was fantastics she had her hands tied.
*The coworkers usually acted and worked like a team should, supporting each other and offering assistance when needed.
*The hardest part was all of the unpaid required administrative work, the meetings, the required hours of phone calls (we were rarely allowed to go on appointments Tuesday and Thursday nights because of that, even if we had a definite sale set up.), and especially the daily required prospect lists that needed to be created and dispositionied, but came from sources which were virtually worthless.
*I love solving people's security challenges and needs in their home by being educational and professional resulting in a high percentage closing ratio. – less
