    Good Company

    Sales (Current Employee)
    Thornton, CO

    ProsSome of the smartest people I've ever worked with. Good amount of responsibility. Benefits were better than average. Part of a world changing product.

    ConsLeadership has had high turnover. Difficult to follow when every new leader has their way, never seems to gel with a real strategy.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLittle more stability please.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    ProsGood starting pay ($11 for sales rep, $15 for team lead)
    Interesting products
    My coworkers rule!
    Never a shortage of hours for part timers

    ConsShifts are 8 hours long, no matter the position.
    Management needs to reconsider where some of its locations are.
    Commission varies GREATLY between location. Some locations make $200/month regularly, others struggle to make $30.

    Advice to Senior ManagementRelocates some retail locations
    Promote internally to maintain employee satisfaction.
