    I have been working at The BusBank full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Very flexible, decent pay, great benefits, 401K, great team players, fun office atmosphere, easy location to commute to, pre-tax travel benefits.

    Cons

    I don't feel there are many cons, if any, working with The BusBank. Pay starts out a little tough for new sales people until they are able to build a customer base, but the majority of opportunities are inbound so you don't have to go find your own clients.,However, like any sales position being proactive will set you apart from the rest and speed up your ability to make great money.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When company goals increase, the sales team is basically getting a raise, but the support team is required to do more work for the same money, would be nice to if everyone reaped the benefits of increased goals/numbers/growth.

    I worked at The BusBank full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Entrepeneurial spirit when I was there, a great location

    Cons

    very low pay for support roles, disorganized, frustrating communication between sales and support staff

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I'm sure things have changed since I have been there, but if I had to say one thing, make certain that the sales team is picking up both good leads and maintaining strong relationships with vendors. Also, if as a smaller company, make sure you reviewing your compensation plans to ensure you have a competitive advantage.

    Trusting our operator partners to perform at the level we request. Assumptions being made about us based on our former owner, and competitors.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep on keeping on.

    I worked at The BusBank

    Pros

    When I first started the best part was the people who worked there. Some are still there but most have moved onto other opportunities.

    Cons

    The BusBank had very shaky management. The company went through bankruptcy so it always felt a bit unstable. Not a very positive work environment

    I have been working at The BusBank

    Pros

    Flexibility
    Investing in employees
    Great Healthcare program
    401k
    Ability to work from home
    Very Good wages for high performers.
    Inbound leads, rather than having to Coldcall

    Cons

    The company did go thru a rough period that was very limiting and stressful for all that were involved. The Charter bus industry is not as exciting as other products that people can sell.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company should continue to invest in more sals support staff as these would make the job even more enjoyable.
