This job is very rewarding if you put in the time, but it is not for people who can’t work hard and long hours. Most importantly, this job gave me experience in so many different sectors, that it gave me leverage in almost all of my interviews for nearly any position I applied for. Effectively, I found a way to relate any question to this position at CWP, and the interviewees are always impressed. They are impressed for good reasoning, as I would credit my growth from this job as the most growth in my professional career to date. However, you not only need to sacrifice time, but money, as this position is unpaid until you complete your first job (production), which was 5 months after I started! As for those who quit before production, they didn’t get paid anything.
Clearly, this job isn’t for those who are uncommitted. With that said, be prepared to work harder than you likely ever did, but note that the effort is forever rewarding (future possibilities and skills). Once you finally start get paid (via production), the checks are decently large, assuming you book over the goal everyone should have at minimum: 70K of revenue.
Note that you will have a talented manager, who will “help” you, but acts more as a resource to answer your questions, to hold you accountable, and to push you! However, don’t be mistaken, they are usually talented people, so use them, but don’t expect them to run your business or hold your hand. These managers excelled in the entry position the prior year, so know what it takes to succeed. Moreover, I can’t tell you how many times I hear of successful people in varying jobs throughout the years that once worked here!
This job is exceptionally beneficial for developing sales talent, that is, if you do good, as it means that you are actually good at sales. Besides that, you will learn how to do marketing via cold calls, door to door, and internet; managing via production or marketing teams you pay; recruitment via hiring crews; training via training them; and finance via paying them. And no, it is not a pyramid scheme.
