    Pros

    Decent staff flexible hours around school comission based pay

    The contracts they had me on were about pitching credit cards to everyone in a department store. If you have amy morals around selling services like that to retirees and the like, don't bother with this job.

    I have been working at Kognitive Marketing for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Very flexible, and competitive wages if you're willing to work for it. I just did this job while studying and it was good for that period in my life.

    Cons

    So much disorganization. And you're selling credit cards, which isn't the best job, but whatever, it paid the bills.

    Team environment, Travel, You learn to accept rejection very quickly. You get to speak with a lot of minorities, elderly folk, and immigrants.

    Cons

    You are scoping out financially illiterate people who walk into the store, you are then bombarding them with a BS pitch on why they should have a credit card.

    Sales experience. Besides that the pay is minimum wage + comission
