    Pros

    You knew your work schedule 2 weeks in advance, store was clean. Also, it was a smokefree environment even though we sold cigarettes.

    Cons

    You had to watch customers to make sure they weren't stealing.

    Advice to Management

    Need to give more raises.


  2. Pros

    You have the opportunity to discuss the latest tech and phones all day long Employee discounts and incentive programs.

    Cons

    Lots of pacing and standing almost the entire shift Ridiculous amounts of training materials Pushy sales goals for staff

    Advice to Management

    Create a revised system to promote specials and drive sales that does not come off as push or mandatory to customers or workers. Too often I felt as if I held a commission based sales job due to the constant stress of how many sales and connections were made rather than if the customer got what they wanted.


  3. Best Version Media is an uplifting company. Great company to work for because you get great support from everyone.

    I have been working at BEST full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    BVM has given us on opportunity to have our own business. I know we can be successful if we understand and live the BVM culture, I feel blessed to be able to make my own schedule and to take time off for family. BVM supports us through conference calls and talking to your regional manger or someone who is working the business. It is fun for me to get to know business that I normally wouldn't visit. I am excited to have such a beautiful magazine that neighbors enjoy having in their home.

    Cons

    My largest struggle is time management I am learning that it is up to me to get my appointments. To stay on task. Having a full week of appointments and being constant is a great feeling. I just wish it would happen every week. Every day I feel like I'm riding a roller coaster. Not knowing what is going to happen is trying at times. But having the example of all the publishers and associate publishers to me is the best motivation I have of knowing we will be successful.

    Advice to Management

    I am learning the culture, When I get up everyday to do something for myself, listen to a conference call. I grow and feel successful when I have 3 yeses a day. Its great knowing that I have everyone at BEST VERSION MEDIA rooting for our success.

    Pros

    Can't think of any. Even benefits were not that great. Stupid place to work for

    Cons

    After you worked for 4 years and sacrificed time with family and friends just trying to prove yourself, they write you up for having pneumonia and not being able to go to work

    Advice to Management

    None. Awful company to work for. They will drain your blood and energy and once you can barely stand they will find reasons to start firing employees

    Pros

    Fun work environment, knowledgeable employees, and great products.

    Cons

    Heavily fluctuating hours, blackout time off from November to mid January. Severely underpaid, for top performance and minimal raises.

    Pay your employees what they are worth and you will retain them.
