Low pay, No work/life balance, Depressing culture
Private Jet Broker (Former Employee) – Miami, FL – July 6, 2018
You need to be great at memorization.
-airport codes (there are 2 per airport)
-over 100 types of planes (max speed, passenger count, lav, range in hours, category)
-their list of SOP's
-a lot more...
Be prepared for pop quizzes.
You can't make commission your first 6 months, and base pay is very low.
You get snapped at for having conversations when you are supposed to be working.
You are expected to always have your work phone on you, and be able to answer it no matter what. If you want to go for an hour long job, be prepared to buy another arm band for 2 phones.
They do not cushion you with prospecting. You build your own list through the resources that they provide you, but also that they provide to everyone else. Those resources are pretty much exhausted, so you have to put in the time to find your own resources. There is not a place in their CRM where you can see which companies have already been called on and said they weren't interested. You will be calling the same companies as others have.
Management makes a lot because they entered the market at the right time, and have built up their list of clientele before the market was flooded. They are just taking calls at this point, which is attractive, but unattainable now.
Other companies can do it better, faster, cheaper, and sell the SAME product.
You stay very up to date with what is going on in the world around you.
