I feel like I work for free, that my talents are being used and abused. Husband says this isn't a job, it's a hobby. Ha

I have been working at Plum District as a contractor (more than an year)

Pros

Flexibility, No sales quotas or pressure to produce

Cons

You don't get paid for your hard work leading up to the sale. Then, your deal you sold runs and not too many people buy, you are left with not much of a reward for your hard work

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Offer DCs full time positions, pay them what they are worth

Doesn't Recommend
Negative Outlook
No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Plum District as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    lots of spiffs and contests to earn cash, gift cards.
    Good regional training sessions and opportunity to meet peers in area

    Cons

    couldn't predict when deals would run - hard to tell client when it'll run when your Regional Manager has authority to change it for any reason. Better deals may bump your deal - even into another month. Hard to predict pay that way.

    I have been working at Plum District full-time

    Pros

    As a sales rep, you gain experience in all aspects of the sales cycle and territory management:
    - prospecting
    - cold calling
    - business & market plan development
    - territory development
    - marketing events
    - working with business owners to craft a daily deal that works for their ROI
    - telecommuting
    - CRM
    It was exciting to be part of something new and growing.

    Cons

    It felt more like an internship than a real position as a full-time sales rep. There was little to no support for sales reps, and constant changing of the company mission. It was difficult to adhere to corporate strategies, as they were ever-changing. There was also minimal training, so unless you are a self-starter and motivator, you have no chance of succeeding or making money.
