Pros

Number one in innovation in their niche market.
Family run all American company and almost entirely American made quality product.
You can stand behind the product.
Supervisors are understanding and will work with you.
Very likely the best viral guerrilla marketing campaigns conceived for YouTube.

Cons

Constantly changes sales platforms and compensation strategy. Not all of this is within their control.
Not all management seems to have a good balance between what is good for the company and what is good for the employees.

    It's an enjoyable working experience. Challenging but my boss spends time working me through machine work.

    Fast-paced and demanding, exhausting but lucrative...commission is very market/store dependent.

    Pros

    Decent base-pay, and very lucrative commission potential - kit charge is deducted from pay, so no upfront cost for a 1099 contract job.

    Cons

    Costco can be very meticulous, picky mgrs can get you fired at a moment's notice; event table and kit is heavy and cumbersome, also grocery shopping CONSTANTLY proved cumbersome; must be comfortable working on reimbursement status for your event costs.

    Advice to Management

    Instead of doing a perpetual reimbursement system for costs, which money is lost with every transfer, use a pre-paid debit card system for event costs that is given out by Blendtec and just direct deposit salary only to rep's personal accounts. Or issue credit cards for event costs, this may cut down on a lot of time reporting in Concur because mgmt would have full-access to spending. Will 100% get rid of time wasted and paper wasted keeping/uploading receipts.
