    I worked at eQuip Enterprises full-time

    Pros

    Interesting client base and industry.

    Cons

    Virtually nothing I was told during the hiring process turned out to be real or true. No leads and you're not allowed and strongly hindered from ever talking to other sales reps. Need 3+ months in income to even try this because of the massive amount of miles you have to drive on your own dime to find equipment for them. If you leave or they force you out, they keep your equipment. Nearly a total lack a communication in the company once you finish a few days of online training.

    Pros

    About the only pro is if you like to work remotely and enjoy being an outside salesman this is both.

    Cons

    #1 problem is you will list equipment and spend hours and hours of time finding and negotiating to list equipment and a lot of money in gas and receive no compensation or reimbursement for gas. You only make an income if you if a listing you have sells. #2 You will get almost no leads for the equipment you list so that means you have almost no opportunity to make a sale or make any money. If they can't generate leads, it makes no sense why they keep bringing people on. #3 if you talk to the owner he will make all kinds of committments of what he is going to do and then Nothing will actually happen. Maybe he does this to keep you listing equipment for a few more weeks for once you leave he gets all your listings to sell and now they keep all the commissions which seems like this may be his entire system.

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, xxx, xxxx, xxxx

    Cons

    No working CRM. Cannot access company email from your phone. Company sales reps are used car salesman, very dishonest and unprofessional. Training by videos, poor training and communication. Company website so dated and Not user friendly. Regional manager is no support and not dependable. Their technology is dated by 15 years. Unprofessional and do question their credibility and integrity.

    I have been working at eQuip Enterprises for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Unlimited income potential is the main thing, freedom and flexibility of schedule, I can spend time with my family and dont work weekends....ever. Also I have belief in the management of the organization and my immediate regional manager who is very helpful. I think this company is on a path to really do amazing things in our industry.

    Cons

    commission job only, no insurance benefits, I have to be accountable for my time without supervision, my lack of equipment knowledge

    I worked at eQuip Enterprises for less than a year

    Pros

    Potentially good income if you already have connections in heavy equipment industry.

    Cons

    This is a standard 1099 independent contractor/straight commission job with a long, shallow learning curve and income curve. Entire working relationship between company and you is rigged in company's favor. They own and control everything. They can and will shut you out or put another sales rep in your territory at any time. Their churn rate with sales reps is over 80%, so where does that leave your chances of success. With over 100 "active" sales reps, of course they will have "singers" who say management is the best and income is great, but the numbers in their CRM of how many reps have come and gone don't lie. My immediate supervisor was a fraud--constantly lied and consistently failed to deliver on promises, big and small; had no clue how to train or interest in training; was completely unreliable and clueless on how to develop and support his salespeople out in the field. eQuip may have some good regional managers, but mine was the biggest impediment to my success. After their video training, which is woefully inadequate for a job that is so complex and deals in big ticket sales, you are going to be on your own. The pressure to produce starts two weeks after you sign on, and the sales quotas are totally unrealistic, but failure to meet them is grounds for the company to can you. Anything you generate is company property stored in their CRM system, not yours, so when you leave (or when they kick you out without a reason) your production stays with them and they keep any future commissions on future sales. The entire eQuip sales system is set up with the expectation that you will fail-- it's 80% probable, and they will profit off what you have to leave behind, and they can easily replace you with their high powered recruiting machine. This is why their total direct investment in you before you start selling is less than $100; you could be out thousands if you don't make quick sales before you ever see a paycheck. Oh, the biggest lie in the entire organization is the one you tell your customers: "You set your price and that is exactly what you get." You will be taught and encouraged to chisel your customers down when a sale is imminent, all in the name of "it's more income for you".

    I worked at eQuip Enterprises

    Pros

    Flexible hours, independent contractor status, sky could be the limit in the right market.

    Cons

    Quota required, if not met, rep is shut out and all listings (and hard work) goes to the company. After over three months work, I had one slow month (December) and was cut off of the email and company website without any notice.

    I worked at eQuip Enterprises full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Good commissions provided you can list equipment that gets the phone to ring. good training and support from knowledgeable folks who've done it

    Cons

    You are on your dime until your stuff sells. No financial re-imbursement for anything till you sell something. You better have at least 3 months worth of $ to get "ramped up". Too much emphasis on getting listings vs. selling what you have. You need to be working in an economically viable community where there is a lot of new construction going on.
