    I have been working at Vitamix full-time

    Pros

    Absolute best product, you will make a lot of money, very kind managers and employees, on for 5-10 days off for 5-10 days gives you a lot of free time, no direct manager supervision

    Cons

    No reimbursement for hotel gas car cell nada. You work for 12 hours a day and have no time when you are on a show. Very labor intensive. You will be dealing with a lot of disgruntled warehouseman who want you to move boxes around instead instead of working. All these complaints would be very minimal if you have a spouse or partner to work with you, offer you relief days, be an emergency contact when you forget something far from home and ladies do not i repeat do not start this position unless you have a man who can help you move around your booth and supplies all those machines get heavy too when you are moving 50 of them at a time. This is a very labor intensive job.

    Advice to Management

    Please, on the job listing, put absolutely must be able to bring in spouse partner in to either offer you heavy lifting support or actually demonstrate and work with you.

    Pros

    Potential to make money. Meet some great people. Help people through education of nutrition with a great product.

    Cons

    Physically demanding on the body standing for extremely long periods in the same spot, 10 hours 5 days, 8 hours 2 days straight. Shows are 2 weeks and now they even up'ed the show times. Unless you have a partner or spouse that works with you where you can take shifts; it is not easy on the body. Away from home very often. Have to pay for your hotel. Meet some not so great people. They don't want you talking about nutrition.

    Pros

    I feel incredibly fortunate to be a part of Vitamix. The family culture is something I have never experienced thus far in my career. The environment fosters growth and empowerment, while being surrounded by positive, passionate colleagues who respect your opinion and insights. Vitamix goes above and beyond to recognize employees, and the generous perks and benefits are unsurpassed. I am grateful to be a part of the Vitamix family.

    Cons

    Vitamix is a growing company which can be exciting but an adjustment for some...as there are opportunities to build structure with more formalized process and procedures.

    Pros

    - Culture at Vitamix is one of teamwork and collaboration. For the most part, employees are friendly, fun and care about each other
    - Amazing benefits (100% paid healthcare, gym, profit sharing, etc.)
    - Bright future ahead of it. Sales growth has been dramatic in the past 4-5 years with continued opportunity for even more growth
    - Nice facility
    - Company is generous with its perks and celebrates with its employees (gift cards, lunches etc.)

    Cons

    - With growth skyrocketing, things can be disorganized. There is a lack of structure/process that can be frustrating.
    - Things move quickly here, so it can be fast-paced and high demand sometimes

    Advice to Management

    - Focus on the big picture and our strategic future. Employees love how much you care about them personally, but they need the leadership team to step up and focus on how we are going to sustain our growth vs. focusing on non-valued added things (i.e. dinners, gift cards, etc.)
