If You're Used To The "Extremely" Aggressive Sales Person Type

Clear Sales Representative (Former Employee) Baltimore, MD

Pros-When one first starts, the schedule is very flexible
-Ok pay (started me at 10.50/if You're a student perhaps like myself)

Cons-The companies' main concern is you selling the product even if it involves not FULLY informing the customer (reminds me of the so called "crazy car sales men" tactics)
-The company snatches up anybody they can since their employees tend to drop like flies
-No kiosk, they expect you to hound down as many people as you can in whichever Best Buy location you are assigned to
-Befriending Bestbuy employees is assumed to "new" employees
-Inconsistency in scheduling/location (basically if you're expected to be compensated for your gas, you better make that daily 3 sales)
-It just all seemed unprofessional to me...if you are referred or offered by anybody I suggest you RUN, If ANYBODY is happy in this company it is because they are comfortable being pushy & have moved up sporadically somehow (if that makes any sense?)
-Promotes growth, but that's only if you SELL SELL SELL
-OH, your "trainer" usually isn't properly informed their "trainee" is coming
- I walked into Best Buy with the most utter confusion as to how I could find my trainer, Until I spotted her with a "Clear" shirt at the geek squad station, or should I say "hanging off" the side of the geek squad station.. sad
-Also if you're looking for steady pay? Seriously RUN

Advice to Senior ManagementPlease THOROUGHLY inform future employees as to what they're getting into exactly. Let them know they are going to be standing in the middle of a Best Buy basically "Hustling to death". There isn't even a station people can be aware of. The clear product is stuck in a corner of the laptop aisle. I never went back after the first day. I immediately applied at the mall seasonly, until I find something better. Just horrible.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
