      Pros

      There's so much room for growth with this company. Very supportive team of people who are motivated to help all employees develop their skills in sales and leadership.

      Cons

      It is hard work and long hours.

      Pros

      Entry level sales position, which allows anyone no matter education or experience to come in and grow within the company. Ability to earn as much as the work you put in. The company and the people put everything possible into the entry level candidate to become successful.

      Cons

      Long hours and that's about all

      Door to door sales

      Pros

      There really aren't that many pros here. It's a door to door sales job, which is absolutely not worth your time.

      Cons

      Long hours and lying management. From the get go, they advertise the job as more office based, when in reality it is just a sales job

      Hi there - from reading your review I don’t believe you have worked with our company or even interviewed with us as all of our Job postings are very clear that the role would be in direct sales to start off with. We are also very transparent throughout the interview process, and before having anyone come on board to our team they must partake in a full day job shadow which should clear up the parameters of the role. So I don’t necessarily understand where the confusion comes from after going through that whole interview process. There is no benefit for us to bring someone on board and waste resources training if they are not interested in the role or the company. With that being said wish you the best of luck in the job search.

      Mixed review

      Pros

      - Easy to get in, especially if you have an empty resume. Great source of early work experience - Great training on personal skills necessary for the workforce and life in general. The learning curve is very steep and I have to say it is the biggest amount of life education I've received just in one summer working full time - Enthusiastic and supportive work environment. They try to make it fun in the office and incorporate team nights every week - A little flexibility is allowed with regards to the fact that you can determine what days you choose to work. This is because pay is fully commission based - Good team spirit - The ceo, Luke, is quite an inspiring guy who left me really impressed

      Cons

      - The pay can be very bad (just as it can be very good if you work really hard or you're naturally gifted at cold calling and pitching) - This is not a job for someone who's looking for a regular, secure 9-5 - Long hours working for no overtime compensation, a lot of walking and it's crazy stressful if you don't own a car - You either really enjoy your time with Addella (and stay for a while) or hate your time there and leave really quickly

      Thanks for taking the time to review our company. Throughout your interview process you would have observed the field, gone through the pay structure, and told a manager that you were a great fit for this role. By the looks of your review it appears that your time at Addella lasted a couple days and you likely did not complete your training before deciding to leave. It's unfortunate that our time together was so brief, however if we did offer you a role we did see a lot of potential in you, and we're sure you'll find something that is a better fit as to what you're looking for. All the best

      Pros

      - they provide a training - while hiring you they pair you with their employee so you could see what your day to day duties would be

      Cons

      - had to spend a lot of time outside going door to door - was way too hot outside and I almost fainted couple of times - mostly cold calling - no hourly rate, only commission - long hours - door to door

      Fantastic Experience for a Young and Ambitious Entrepreneur

      Aug 12, 2014 - B2B Sales Agent in Toronto, ON
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      From your first day on the job you receive the best hands on training by not only your leader but by everyone in the office. Addella is truly a team environment where everyone is supportive of each other's successes. There is a true team environment which allows both new and experienced sales consultants to continuously learn throughout their time at Addella. I can honestly say that this is an opportunity to work with amazing, energetic and like-minded people who truly transform the office space into a fun environment. There is constantly music playing the occasional office party, including weekly team nights aimed at promoting office cohesion and relationships. But most of all, Addella provides such a huge opportunity especially for young, fresh out of school professionals. The leadership and ownership opportunity provided at Addella is unlike any opportunities that you will receive at other B2B sales jobs. If you are ambitious, hard working, and motivated, Addella is the perfect employer.

      Cons

      Expect to work long hours (9+ hours) and spend the majority of your day out of the office approaching businesses and business owners. Compensation is based solely on commission (although this can also be a pro as there is not limit to your earnings). You do not receive employee benefits as you are considered an independent contractor.
