Underpaid and overly stressful

Payment Verification Specialist (Current Employee)
Wausau, WI

I have been working at EastBay Concepts part-time for less than a year

Pros30% off of all Footlocker stores

ConsManagement plays favorites, minimum wage with small and infrequent raises, 99% of coworkers have no idea what they are doing, horrible hours, almost impossible to get off work the days that you need.

Advice to Senior ManagementIf you pay a little bit more then you will have much more qualified applicants and your turnover rate won't be so ridiculously high.

TERRIBLE

Leadership - Sales (Former Employee)
Walnut Creek, CA

I worked at EastBay Concepts

ProsNice employees
that is about all i can say about this company. you're in there at this terrible job with nice people who are in the same trench warfare with you

ConsEverything!
no reimbursement of gas
no pay
it was a terrible decision to work here!!!
DONT WORK HERE PLEASE!! I AM WARNING YOU!!

Advice to Senior Managementclose up shop, quit scamming people, quit being d-bags who are pushing unrealistic quotas on to your employees. get a life...working harder doesn't mean sacrificing your personal life to make a few pennies. i made more money delivering pizzas part time than i did working here 50 hours a week. in fact not working at all, you would make more money. DON'T FALL VICTIM TO THIS SCAM!! IF A COMPANY SOUNDS TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE...ITS CRAP!! don't look for a job where they are willing to train you from "entry Level" to upper management in less than a year...that is a scam! real companies make you work for many years and aren't in a rush to promote you (sad but true)

Scam

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Walnut Creek, CA

I worked at EastBay Concepts

ProsIf you sell a lot you make kind of decent money but that does not happen often. People are nice and friendly.

ConsDoor to door. Waste of gas and no reimbursement. Almost everything is negative. No sells no money whatsoever. No stability.

Advice to Senior ManagementGet more benefits and be fair with the contribution. This guys are barely legal. Not hire just everyone who walks through the door.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

You better have a savings account you can dip into to start working here

Door to Door Outside Sales (Former Employee)
Walnut Creek, CA

I worked at EastBay Concepts

Pros-Fun Atmosphere
-Many younger people
-consistent positive thinking
-support from co workers
-everyone here really seems to be really dedicated to this job.

Cons-Very limited benefits,
-you have to use your own vehicle (hey! gas prices are high not to mention the maintenance)
-meetings twice a week that usually went to 8 pm; which is late after driving around all day going door to door trying to sell stuff, go to a meeting, drive back home and have to be there at 7 AM the next day
-Commission only
-pep talks with unrealistic goals for the day for most people.
-You still have to be in a suit everyday, any type of weather, try finding decent shoes to fit the attire while still being able to walk around to 100 businesses a day and not come limping back to the office.
-Having to drive out to the office, then to your territory an hour away, pay a bridge toll, drive all the way back to the office, go to a meeting, then go home. Wish they would've told me this real scenario before I was hired. They pump this job up to seem great but they forget the daily details which isn't fair.
-Door to door, everyday, rain or shine, that is all you do here

Advice to Senior ManagementI have to agree with the previous post, Higher base pay and/or pay for gas. Even though it might scare potential employees away, say what a realistic day is like, don't have people act what to say during the interview process; they will just end up learning the hard way and feel like they have wasted their time.

Very fulfilling job.

Customer Service Representative (Former Employee)

I worked at EastBay Concepts

ProsFriendly atmosphere
You get to wear street clothes on the job
The hours are good for the job
You get rewarded for outstanding work
Easy job

ConsSome customers can get really pissed off
Not exactly the most flexible hours
Can occationally become stressful
Don't do this job if you can't take stress

Advice to Senior ManagementYou guys do a great job at keeping the employees happy and satisfied while on the job. Cold spots and Hot spots are amazing when someone needs off or is looking for hours. Rewards for perfect calls are awesome.
