    I have been working at Pure Octane Talent full-time

    Pros

    There are none. They make it seem like it's an amazing opportunity but at the end it's a sales job.

    Cons

    -They offer 100% commission OR base pay which is minimum wage. It's a trick because of your commission is higher than your base they will not pay you for all the extra hours they make you work outside the sales Feild.
    -You attend unpaid conference calls
    -They make their staff write positive reviews about the company.
    - They make.you drive to events that are 2 hours away and do not compensate for gas or milage
    - Require you to work 14 hour shifts at events that are 2 hours away (do the math of how long that day is)
    - Pay is never consistent or on time
    - They send you to Air bnbs with no hot water or heating/air-conditioning to save money
    -No benifits
    -No pention
    -Horrible work culture and values

    Advice to Management

    Quit before you get arrested for fraud.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Pure Octane Talent full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Opportunities to expand sales skills and gain experience
    Good Resume Builder
    I'd recommend this position to a summer university student looking to gain sales experience. You're guaranteed minimum wage and are likely to gain a lot of experience that looks good on a resume. Wouldn't recommend to someone that is looking to build a career.

    Cons

    It is essentially a pyramid scheme.
    Very difficult to earn commissions and you aren't supported well by management.
    Very high turnover rate.

    Advice to Management

    Increase base salary. Dial back hours on employees so they don't burn out as quickly. Allow for a proper feedback system and support employees instead of pitting them against each other. These things will lower your turnover rate.

    Working with like minded individuals who are always working towards their goals and helping you do so as well. Everyone in this office and industry is quick to help and want you to succeed. You are always pushed to be the best you.

    Pros

    Pure Octane has enabled growth, development and push myself to new levels. Daily challenges and a true support system that allows me to obtain and reach my goals,while not feeling stagnant and stale. There is no cap on the knowledge which can be gained and utilized with a strong student mentality and a excellent work ethic.

    Weather you love business, new experiences, travel and or personal growth, Pure Octane provides all of the above on a fast track to being a successful entrepreneur.

    If you do not want to punch in and punch out as an employee but would like to develop yourself into a business owner and entrepreneur, Pure Octane is the right place for you to call home,

    Cons

    Originally, the hours seemed long and personally without out my own transportation I found it difficult to travel to our events. Finding and developing a balance between personal life and business was a challenge. With very minimum amount of time, I've become solution oriented which enabled me to turn these negatives into positives which now I can share my own experiences with others whom may have similar concerns.

    Advice to Management

    Keep building a structure that will allow to build opportunity for anyone who is willing to take the short term sacrifice for the long term reward.

    I have been working at Pure Octane Talent full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The amount I have learned in the last 2 years working with this company has been absolutely unparalleled, even including my years in University. Their main focus is on personal growth and development, and building a career to last you the rest of your life. I would not trade my opportunity for anything in the world.

    Cons

    There is a huge time commitment required to build your business, however the key to entrepreneurship is "doing things right now that others won't so you can do things in the future that others can't." If you look at it as an investment, you will succeed... if you can't, then this business simply is not for you.
