Suggestions for improvement
- be up front and honest with new hires. I would not of accepted the job offer had I known ahead of time what I was getting into.
I like about the employer
HBC INTERNATIONAL is advertised as a marketing company working for fortune 500 companies.
I dislike about the employer
In the long run, HBC INTERNATIONAL is purely a Business to Business sales company selling TMobile Cell Phone Contracts and AT&T Uverse Subscriptions in a Door to Door fashion. Reps are assigned an area to work, and are expected to close 5 contracts a week; working Saturdays are mandatory if you don't close 5 accounts in a Monday to Friday work week. During the interview/training/startup process, it is maid out to be that promotion happens quickly, and that in a mere 9 months to 1 year you will be promoted to the level of "owning" your own business. This is fine and dandy, but the promotions are based on sales performance, so if you don't have a good week, you don't get promoted. at the same time, if you don't have a good week you don't get paid as payment is 100% commission basis dependent on the number of contracts sold, though contracts can vary in sales value as the rep would earn $1-200 per cell line contracted. Reps work 7:30am-7:30 pm Monday - Friday and 9:00am - 4:00pm Saturday; and are required to attend weekly TEAM nights on Thursdays that are typically at a bar close to the "Office" and little to no food is provided after working a 12 hour day. Likewise gasoline and mileage is not reimbursed from this company. I have not worked for HBC in almost 2 years, and am still trying to pay off the credit card debt from the gasoline I purchased to "Do my Job"...
