Advice to ManagementAdvice

There needs to be a check and balance program for ROM and DRO positions as all other positions have. The lack of managements true presence, management training, and management ethics was clearly missing from my particular DRT. As the "flagship" team and training program for the company, this was once the top DRT, now due to the DRO and a particular ROM the team has disintegrated and even completely done away with the employee/client training progam. Sad and a real sign of a "red flag". Despite high ratings from peers and the client, the ROM and DRO clearly "ran off" many employees to include great trainers, supervisors and employees. Many people quit and were not fired, clearly another "red flag' to HR/Talent Development. It was clearly a "good old girls" club on the team and basically once the managers were caught for falsifying, the people reporting quit/got fired, and the managers are still there.
Wake up upper management, look at your ROM'S and DRO'S they are "free reign" and ruining the company.They are the ones that need more supervision and not the RS and RSM/RSA positions.

    Pros

    You work on your own but you are always being tracked.

    Cons

    Company never gives raises but gives you more work than any human could do. Not properly compensated for travel time, wear and tear on car, etc. They keep cutting compensation so that I am making less money than I was 6 years ago. Company invests solely in technology and not their employees. They want you to sell product without any incentives. This company has really gone downhill.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit treating employees as disposable and remember that without the people at the bottom, you would not have a job. The economy will get better and your employees will remember how they have been treated.

    I worked at Advantage Sales and Marketing part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Easy work doing demos the products and store are good so that makes it tolerable for the pay especially if your a student.

    Cons

    The red tape is endless. The trainings are irrelevant. The direct manager depending on stores are racist and use favoritism.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Actually go to your territory stores and talk to the employees
