Life Changing opportunity if you\'re willing to work Sales Rep(Former Employee)

Recommends Positive Outlook Approves of CEO I have been working at ShopperLocal full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

I've been with the company for several years - for me and my family this has been a life changing opportunity but you know what they say anything worth having isn't easy to get! When I took this job I never dreamed it would become a career and I had no idea what I was doing but I was open minded and listened to my trainer - I memorized the script and after training did exceptionally well. I've earned more money than I ever thought possible and have been able to maintain my income for several years. Just like with any marketing this program isn't for everyone however if the customer gives us a good offer the results are excellent!

Cons

The biggest con I've seen people post in their reviews is learning a script, micro managing, and being expected to work. As a manager I can attest the script works we've literally sold Millions of dollars of advertising using it none of it is new its just what has always worked in our business. The only people I micro mange are the ones who don't work and at the end of the day this is a sales company - you get paid what your worth if you're willing to listen and work hard the sky is the limit if you are lazy and stubborn your tenure will be very short lived.

Advice to Management

Continue listening to the top producing employees and continue changing for the better

Good place to get started Sales Rep(Former Employee)

Recommends Neutral Outlook Approves of CEO I worked at ShopperLocal full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Taught me how to deal with putting out fires quickly. You deal with a huge range of personality types, so you get comfortable working with all sorts of people *fast*.

Cons

I left a while ago, so it would be unfair to list some of the issues at the time I was employed as they could very well have been fixed by now. One con was the health benefits (cigna at the time), which didn't cover much and would have been way too expensive to add any family members to.

Advice to Management

Always keep the lines of communication open; never let anyone fear that their job is at stake if they speak up about a concern of theirs.

Had a nice time over here Sales Rep(Former Employee) Durham

Recommends Negative Outlook Approves of CEO I worked at ShopperLocal full-time (More than a year)

Pros

ShopperLocal is a nice place to work. They pay well, condition is that you work hard. There is no place for people who have a tendency to crib while those who want to learn are grow are appreciated abroad.

Cons

There are a few flaws within the organization which hamper the overall effectiveness of the operations. The communication between departments is not streamlined; this can be very harmful especially for the agents who have to handle the customers.

Advice to Management

Please streamline the communication process so that it becomes easier for the agents to work.

Working at my own pace Sales Rep(Former Employee) Valencia

Take and receive calls, Make several calls to potential clients. Management would teach you how sell to customers. The hardest was trying to convince clients no there still no outcome.

The distance and not having a reliable job

Bad local management

Advice to Management
The company is going through changes but they’re handling it better than most Sales Rep(Current Employee) Charlotte

Recommends Positive Outlook Approves of CEO I have been working at ShopperLocal full-time (More than a year)

Pros

there is a huge emphasis on training. Our new hires are given all the information they need to succeed. The training manual is updated regularly and real experiences are shared with the group. In short, everyone is given everything right from the start.

Cons

with how fast the company is moving, a lot of new people fill in old and new functions in in a short amount of time. It takes some time to get used to the speed of how things move.

Advice to Management

before introducing new people with new functions, allow them some time to get comfortable in their position first. Introducing them prematurely gets them in a position where they get bombarded with tasks and requests that they may still not be able to fulfill

Marketing Consultant Sales Rep(Current Employee) Charleston

Recommends Positive Outlook I have been working at ShopperLocal full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Ability to make an above average income...1st year 80k plus, 100k plus the next and beyond. Of course this is without a complacent attitude! We must be persistent and open minded to coaching(learning and changing when necessary) to make our skill sets and income better. We have the opportunity to self manage if in fact our results dictate that privilege.

Cons

I cannot think of any at this time except we are a newer company and I would love to see some kind of company match on the 401k.

Advice to Management

Love you all and let\'s grow into more states and offer this awesome opportunity to others!

Company has a lot of opportunity. Sales Rep(Current Employee) Durham

This company has a lot of growth opportunity. Sales reps are given a base salary and uncapped commission. Also, the company allows for gas and phone allowances. You have to sell to be successful; it is not a walk in the park. If you can master the sales process and do it the way its been proven then you can and will make money. Training is available and the managers are always helpful.

Pros

Great people to work with. Friendly completion within the company, top sales reps get to go on trips!

Cons

Small business can be a challenge to sell to. the cold call dialing can be difficult.

Advice to Management
Challenging, fast paced, multi-functional experience. Sales Rep(Former Employee) Charlotte

Working for Shopper Local was rewarding because I was able to introduce creative marketing to clients. I was solely responsible for client generation, follow-up, and retention. I was able to consistently build upon my sales skills on a daily basis. I enjoyed working for this company because they encouraged individual autonomy.

Pros

Building b2b customer relationships.

Cons

Inconsistent management within organization.

Advice to Management
Excellent company to work Sales Rep(Current Employee)

I've worked for ShopperLocal since 2010, and it has been a smooth road ever since. The workplace is very user friendly, especially when it comes to my sales supervisor. As long as the target is being met, there is incredible flexibility given to the employee. The management shows adaptability if an employee wants to use their own methods to get the task done. Over and all it is a good company to work with.

Pros

Growth and stability, flexibility

Cons

Communication issues.

Still room for improvement Sales Rep(Former Employee) Durham

A typical day at ShopperLocal is a fun day. The mantra is simple here - Work hard, Party harder. Working here has been instrumental in teaching me the intricacy of sales and inventory management. The management is supportive bu only to those who put genuine effort in their work. The co-workers are divided into two categories - The go-getter group and the crib all day group. The hardest part of the job was to achieve targets but that is exactly what made learning process fast. The sense of achievement, knowing that I have earned more than a salary from here was the most enjoyable part

Pros

Learning, understanding management

Cons

Inter department communication

Advice to Management
Fast paced, and ever changing job! Sales Rep(Current Employee) Durham

Cold calling daily for leads and appointments. Meeting customers face to face to sell print advertising.

Pros

Open schedule

Cons

Not easy in small towns

Advice to Management
Good work environment with helpful colleagues Sales Rep(Former Employee) Durham

A day at office is quite hectic and thing can go haywire at times but the support of my colleagues and manger have pulled me out very serious mistakes. I had the delight of working with them for 6 years and it has been a road trip with its high and low point but the experience is magnificent.

Pros

Incentives, management, colleagues

Cons

Work pressure, communication

Advice to Management
Positive work environment with support from superiors Sales Representative(Current Employee) Durham

My job involves collecting leads and visiting prospects. The whole routine is same like any other sales job except for the fact that most of the time I don't even need to visit the office. I get my leads on my cellphone or laptop and am ready to go though I love visiting office and do that as much as I can. The hardest part of the job is to reach your targets but with a job in sales, it comes with the territory. Over and with a good salary and great incentives, I love to work here

Pros

Good salary, great incentives, flexible work practices

Cons

Hard to take a day off. You can't get one to just chill out and cool down which one needs at times.

Advice to Management
Competitive but fun place Sales Executive(Current Employee) Albany

It's tough at ShopperLocal but that is exactly what keeps me hooked on. Everyday is a new challenge, every deal is do or die and the going gets tougher once you start getting big clients. But, the incentives get bigger, the rewards get larger and you wallet gets thicker. At ShopperLocal, the love to face challenges is what keeps you going and growing. If you don't have that fire to redefine each day and make it bigger, you can't survive a week here so this company here is not for the faint hearted. This is a place for warriors.

Pros

Huge incentives, great networks, appreciation

Cons

Advice to Management
A Good, competitive workplace. Field Sales Representative(Current Employee) Albany

I have been working at ShopperLocal full-time (More than a year)

Pros

When the tough gets tougher, only a warrior at heart can find the will to pave the way toward success. ShopperLocal is not for the faint of heart. You have to have an iron will to grow. Survival is not even a valid term here. Either you grow or you decay, there is no grey area. But, you grow really fat and hard word is never left unnoticed. A great place to work.

Cons

During my term of 1 year, I am yet to come across any negative aspect. Some people define competitive environment as "too much pressure" but then again, ShopperLocal is not for the faint of heart.

Advice to Management

Great Job

Good work. Great Incentives. Senior Sales Representative(Current Employee) Provo

Have been working at ShopperLocal full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Incentives, Work Culture, Flexibility. The opportunities to express yourself in ways that other organizations would consider too unorthodox. Immense freedom with practices.

Cons

With great freedom comes expanded responsibilities and accountability so work pressure can be immense. But if you need to do it your way, you will find the will to deal with it.

Advice to Management

Keep us the great work. Things have been turning beautiful for us since the little time after I joined and very soon we will reach new heights.

Great Opportunity for Someone Willing To WORK! Anonymous Employee(Current Employee) Atlanta

Pros

I started with this company almost 6 years ago with no sales experience and it has been a priceless learning opportunity. I have personally made 70K + per year while selling this product in the field. It does take HARD WORK however. Reps who leave negative feedback are reps who aren't willing to work hard. Yes, it is sales and it takes WORK. This product is not going to sell well using former sales tactics. There is a thorough training program in place for a reason. This is a very fast sales cycle and the rep must be willing to follow a sales program, proven to produce success if they want to be successful. I have been successful in selling this product for years because I follow the training program. There have never been any deceit regarding my commission or paycheck. There has never been a mistake on my paycheck and I have never been paid late. I enjoy my work environment and have great senior management.

Cons

The company has gone through some changes on the customer service side and communication between customer service and customers does need some improvement.

Advice to Management

My only advice to management is to hire reps that are truly willing to work, not reps who are expecting to earn a paycheck regardless of activity - this will weed out a lot of negative feedback. Keep up the great work!

Great start-up mentality Anonymous(Current Employee)

I have been working at ShopperLocal full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Even though this company has been around for many years, it shares many positive characteristics with start-ups. 1) Upper management is not only approachable, but they are open to listening to ideas and suggestions. 2) If you are willing to work hard, then there is a place for you.

Cons

Top-down communication can be slow at times.

Advice to Management
Simple process, Great product...independent work with support Sales(Current Employee)

I have been working at ShopperLocal full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

The product is a fit for the right buyer and that is what we do is find the right buyer. Great true sales position where NO ONE gets in your way. Company is very open to listening and making changes to keep up with growing sales and team. Always someone there to help if you need it!

Cons

Cannot think of any-- doing their best to keep up with a lot of growth is a challenge but a great issue to have!

Advice to Management

Continue to have an open mind and listen to the team!

Average benefits, great incentives! Field Sales Representative(Former Employee) Durham

I worked at ShopperLocal full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

A very stable work environment. Full of youth and brimming with energy. Incentives are good and managers are quite co-operative which makes working here very comfortable.

Cons

Pressure can be very high sometimes and it can get quite harsh during a dry spell and communication is not up to the mark which can hamper performance drastically at times. It's a good that that managers understand this issue and show leniency.

Advice to Management
Great outside sales opportunity -- treat it like your own business!! Local Marketing Consultant(Current Employee) Goldsboro

I have been working at ShopperLocal full-time (More than a year)

Pros

The southeast Adcart Team uses a proven sales system that can realistically generate a 6- figure income in your first year. Strong training program including a 20 minutes training call every morning to help you increase your sales. Good leadership

Cons

Out of town travel could be a problem. Most reps travel at least 50% of the time. I'm used to it from prior outside sales positions.

Advice to Management
Very Professional and Demanding Sales Representative (Former Employee) Long Island City

I worked at ShopperLocal full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

You have unlimited potential if you are a good salesman. You don't have to be amazing, just open minded and follow the system they provide for you and train you with. You could literally make 6 figures your first year there.

Cons

The demands are hard, however not impossible. You must be able to work independently and have thick skin. You get tons of people telling you 'no' than 'yes' but that is normal if you are in the sales field already.

Advice to Management
Great Culture/ Team Environment Sales Rep(Former Employee) Watertown

Jump on for a company call at 8 am, its a great call I learned the most from these calls. You will participate in some roll play, also learn whats working from other reps. There is very little supervision, you need to be a hard working individual that has lots of initiative. I liked the fact that there was very little micromanaging. Management was the best part of this company. I could call my regional manager at all hours of the day, and get mentor ship or assistance with a problem. Even the Vice President leaves his number open to call for help. This is the time to join the company, it is growing fast. It seemed every week there were more and more people joining the team. This created several advancement opportunity's. One of my goals was to become a manager. The company worked with me and help me set clear goals on achieving this. I became a trainer which I really enjoyed helping new reps learn and grow. The company has a company wide chat app which made the day exciting, also motivating me seeing reps close big deals! The hardest part of the job is the cold calling. My advice is learn from the other reps, find what works for you to gain as many appointments with fewer dials. I choose to leave due to family issues, and other state opportunity. Although would go back in a heart beat.

Pros

freedom flexible hours

Cons
