    Pros

    Free bagels on Friday, if you consider that a pro?

    Cons

    The company does not invest enough in employees. Sales Rep's starting salary is $30K, which is laughable. Was conned into thinking that they offer a "top tier" benefits package. Medical alone is over 250 a month which comes out of your pay. Most real company's don't even charge half of that. The turnover rate is crazy. Always a revolving door. The company can't keep any of their valuable employees because they don't pay them what they are worth, This is prob attributed to the cheap CEO. Also beware of fake reviews on here, EVERY POSITIVE REVIEW IS FAKE. I know for a fact that one of the senior managers spends time every week writing fake reviews, and trying to take down the negative ones. Oh, and the cherry on top...air conditioning would constantly break down during summer months making it unbearable to sit at your desk.

    My advice, get in...AND GET OUT!

    Pros

    Young employees, lots of talent in the building. You'll likely make some friends here. Free bagels on Friday. For recent grads and people in need of work experience this place could be a good crash course in office culture.

    Cons

    Incredibly high turnover, low morale, constant fear of job loss, unethical business practices, no benefits, long hours, schizophrenic management. When I tell people stories about this place they ask "Are you writing this down?"

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You should really be looking for other jobs.

    I worked at Shoplet.com full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    The position is fine if you are in a bind and need to pay bills while interviewing. They are not able to monitor each lunch hour taken by every employee, therefore you can take long breaks. You are not asked to work very hard and the expectations are very low. Co-workers are friendly and fun. Everytime the CEO is away (Fridays in the summer and about 3-4 weeks a year) the office is very relaxed and fun.

    Cons

    It is a small, private company which is ruled with an iron fist by the CEO. There are bonuses and incentives given, however not obtainable. The CEO will find every reason to not pay his employees. Everyone tip toes around the office in hopes to not get on the CEO's bad side. This makes for a very sour, toxic work environment. They go through every e-mail and move that you make. All phone calls are recorded, and camera surround the office. Not a great place to work for any longer than you have to.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get out!

    Shoplet.com - a growing company with history of using and abusing employees

    Pros

    Shoplet is great for those fresh out of college.
    Co-workers are great - decent work environment.
    Right opportunity for those who know how to play the "game". Perception is everything. With a positive perception which unfortunately involves keeping your mouth shut in regards to employee discrimination (payroll, commission, etc), you will be granted extended employment.

    Cons

    Shoplet.com offers very low salaries and has a disorganized commission structure.The CEO/ Founder gets the final "look" at the commission payouts, and coincidentally above average payouts are always a battle to receive. Questioning commission payouts usually leads to them having a bad perception of you which leads to termination.

    Shoplet has a history of using employee ideas, feedback, or achievements without proper reward. Most of the company's biggest accounts/achievements were from the blood, sweat, and tears of employees who were then terminated instead of being rewarded accordingly.

    Their company structure is designed to take away your hard earned accounts, thus limiting your sales which leads to termination.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Grow a spine! All the Senior VP's are six figure puppets.The CEO/ Founder runs the company like a dictatorship, and refuses to take any feedback from the executive board, especially in regards to boosting employee morale. The CEO is a smart individual however, he lacks people skills. A Shoplet employee is a lowly number in his eyes.
