    Work Hard / Play Hard

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at Club Colors

    Pros

    Club Colors has come a long way and is really growing in the right direction. You will get whatever you put into the job, and if you work hard you will reap the benefits. It has a fast paced and high energy environment with a very diverse and fun loving staff. They offer many incentives throughout the year and a generous commission structure. It is not your typical sales role; it is building and maintaining a pipeline of customer relationships. I would recommend this position to anyone with a work hard - play hard mentality and someone who is ready to think outside the box for long term growth and success.

    Cons

    The job can be stressful during busy season and may require you to work a few extra hours in the office per week, but is nothing unmanageable.

    Former Employee - Graphic Design Intern in Schaumburg, IL

    I worked at Club Colors as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Made a little extra money and got to work in the field

    Cons

    Favoritism, Not appreciated when you do all of the design work, Not a fun environment to work in, New ideas were shot down, out of date programs were used.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Actually work with the interns AND don't screw them over. This is a chance of learning, not cheap labor.

    I worked at Club Colors full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Coworkers and seeing end product created

    Cons

    Clearly CC management saw what people were saying and planted reviews. Creates environment of finger pointing, micromanagement, favoritism, lack of respect, complete boys club with no form of respect to women.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value your employees. Don't hire anyone off the street.

    Former Employee - Collegiate Account Manager in Schaumburg, IL

    I worked at Club Colors full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Work/Life balance is good. Your typical office 9am-5pm.
    Other associates are pretty nice , down to earth - (non-management)

    Cons

    Insane Turn-Over Rate
    During my 6th months there , I have seen over 20 people come and go
    Management has absolutely no direction , no business plan
    Management misleads you about career growth and earning potential
    Company offers 0 benefits , none , even though they say they do. (No match on 401k)
    Very weak base pay , the amount of work you have to put it doesn't make it worth it
    Favoritism runs wild through out the office
    I have seen people get fired for no reason (On the spot)
    Its basically a telemarketing job. Expect to make over 80 calls a day. If management sees you are only making around 20 calls a day , they will fire you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you want to grow a successful business ,Club Colors needs to value its employees , which they do not at all. Club Colors also needs a serious and thought out business plan - otherwise I do not see this company lasting much longer.
