    Flexible work environment.

    Retail Representative (Current Employee) DFW, TX

    ProsAble to schedule my work projects around my personal schedule.

    I really enjoy going to work the 2-3 days a week. Great balance between work and retirement.

    In Store Demo Event Specialist (Current Employee) Brookfield, CT

    Pros1. Meeting and having short-term relationships with the public in an nonthreatening environment.
    2. Trying new products, learning and then teaching members about these items.
    3. 2 or 3 days a week. LOVE that!!
    4. If you are VERY independent and do NOT need/want someone hovering over you this is a great job. All contact is via the Internet.

    Cons1. Standing on your feet for 5 hours a shift.
    2. Maybe demonstrating a product you personally would not purchase, but having to convince the members to make the purchase.
    3. All contact is via the Internet.

    Advice to Senior Management1. They are an Internet only based company for the In Store Demo Event Specialists. So follow through with much of anything is VERY slow and it is up to the employee to stay on top of any progress of their needs.

    Brokerage

    Business Analyst (Former Employee)

    ProsFun.
    Easy Going.
    Little internal accountability.
    Friendships.

    Not the best not the worst

    Event Specialist (Current Employee)

    ProsReally awesome people on my team. Fun & easy job. Hourly pay isn't bad. Good for extra income. If you have a passion for cooking/serving, this is a fun way to do it.

    ConsRules seem to change a lot. Our team has had a hard time with good supervisors, they switch them around a lot/fire/replace. Hours are low unless it's a holiday. Not a job you can live off of alone.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBetter communication
