Great pay, great work experience, but a change in management ended all the great things.

I worked at Creative Channel Services as a contractor for more than a year

Pros

Pay was very good for the requirements of the job. Lots of travel perks and just a fun bunch of people.

Cons

Changed immediate managers and it went downhill quick. She made all kinds of changes that made the dynamic of my job and scope of responsibiities change for all the wrong reasons.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Vet your managers and make sure they are qualified for the position you move them into. I understand giving someone a chance, but you need to also look at the impact on the team. Good and bad.

    I worked at Creative Channel Services part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    One works from home and the bosses are far away. Seriously, that is the ONLY pro I can come up with.

    Cons

    As for cons, I am not sure where to start!
    1. The commission struction is based upon activations / per hour. (sales)
    2. The bosses will give one hour notice by email for a mandatory conference call.
    3. The bosses will give one day notice or less for mandatory sales meetings. (Since the managers have to fly in and acquire hotel accommodations, you know they know in advance when they are coming to town.
    4. The meetings and conference calls are UNPAID and take time away from acquiring sales.
    5. You can only acquire sales face to face. That means NO internet sales allowed, NO fliers saying where you will be, and NO activations over the phone.
    6. The bosses spend more time selling the workers and making hollow promises than teaching you how to make sales.
    7. The bosses talk to the employees like they are children with their hands in the cookie jar!

    This may sound like a disgruntled ex employee to you so let me give you a statistic.

    90% of the field sales representatives stay for LESS than 30 days and earn $9 an hour or NOTHING at all! FACT FACT FACT!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You are doing good. By that, I mean "doing good" for yourself! I do not believe that so many smart people do not realize the compensation plan is not good for the sales people.

    I worked at Creative Channel Services full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Overall this was a great place to work. Client could be difficult, but that is why they're successful.

    Cons

    Lose a big client and lose a lot of great people. It's unfortunate, you feel after years and years the company is a career, not just a stop.
