    I have been working at Best Version Media full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The interviewer was honest regarding possible income to me made using minimums to make it easy to understand. Thoroughly explained this is not a get rich quick scheme, you get out what you put into the position. After discussing various options, we concluded the Account Executive position was a better fit, for everyone, myself and for the company. The recruiter had a complete concern that because it was 100% commission sales, that I was prepared in case it was 3 months or more before I saw any commission, so there were no surprises.

    Cons

    Non at this time. The recruiter was thorough and therefore answered all my questions before I had to ask them.
