Cons
  • Very clickish especially regarding upper management (in 10 reviews)

  • The sales floor has no communication with the "Creative" department, so our hard-earned sale can become a charge back for something you didn't do (in 7 reviews)

Pros include a casual, relaxed working environment, awesome company culture, some of the best people that I have worked with and for, work/life balance, promotions within are very obtainable, tools and resources to further enhance my skills.

    Pros

    Nice and friendly coworkers. Sometimes there were some fun competitions with go home goals and who doesn't want to go home early??!!

    Cons

    Very repetitive and uneventful sales job. Honestly, the most unprofessional environment I have ever worked in. I know gossip is everywhere but this place takes the cake. The manager herself couldn't stay out of everyone's business, spread gossip, and then cried that everyone hated her. She talked about her paycheck to everyone and basically threw in your face that you were there to put food on her kids table. Literally and actually said that. To make sales, you basically have to lie as the product you are selling does not work at all. Check out reviews on yelp and BBB. So you either have to be OK with selling a horrible product or you wont do good. The product is so bad that I could have sold it to friends and family at a great discount but still could not because of how bad it was.

    Advice to Management

    Be professional, if you can not be professional, how do you expect everyone else to be? Set the bar of professionalism and actually go though with it. Understand that everyone is there for their own livelihood. We all have bills to pay. So guess what managers, its not only your paycheck that matters, and when you voice that it is, it actually discourages your employees. I admit that I wasn't the best at sales, but there wasn't a single thing the manager did to help with the sales that I did make. So jumping on the phone in the last five minutes of a sales call does not make you a good manager and worthy of that credit. Also, most of the employees are 25 and older, so treating them like children does nothing to help the work culture and environment. Everyone notices, and just because most have not said anything yet does not mean they are happy there. Stop with the passive aggressive and mom like comments.

    Pros

    Nice competitive environment. Good managers, good atmosphere.

    Cons

    like any outbound sales position, you get out what you put in. high activity leads to good sales. be prepared to make over 100 calls a day.

    Advice to Management

    while i was there i never felt like i had resources available for potential clients with the "turn and burn" element of our sales process. not everyone was ready to purchase on a one call drop.

    Pros

    The people you work with are generally pretty nice

    Cons

    Where to begin, little to no hourly pay, if you are new in the commission only atmosphere, be prepared to regret this decision. Turnover left & right, no real training or leads, you are told to "Be creative", so you must use yelp, FB, google, etc to find leads, then you look them up in the system to see 100 previous employees have called them over a 7 year period and they were hung up on every time, but you are told to keep on keepin' on. Only the 1% there actually make it work because they've mastered the art of lying to people or only telling half truths.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your people better, train them more effectively
