    Challenging & rewarding but a bit frustrating, growing & booming but share the wealth with more than just sales people..

    I worked at Empire Today full-time

    Pros

    This is a very secure job with room for OT and bonus potential. Things are constantly changing so it keeps it interesting. The Company is growing which is reassuring in these times.

    Cons

    The promotions are very repetitive and don't really offer customers too much savings unless they price match. Training needs to be more comprehensive and extensive. People in high positions are mainly only white people which can lead to negativity.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Seek feedback and listen, listen!!! Consider getting a new trainer. Promote the right people, you have great people working there who need to be promoted to the right position; get rid of people who are not conducive to business growth.

    Independent Sales Contractor Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Empire Today in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    What a joke! Why did I ask questions only to be lied to? Was told my daily preferred hours of 9-5 was completely acceptable,that I could set my own hours was fine. Furthest thing from the truth. Evening and Saturday hours are mandatory which I can not work.
    Then I had to take a ridiculous "personality" test that absolutely no one could fail to get the job. Was told to report to work on Monday, ultimately giving someone no time to get their life together. What if you were leaving another job, so therefore you could not give proper notice?

    Negotiation Details
    There wasn't a negotiation since this is strictly commission-based.
