Current Employee - Sales Representative  in  South Portland, ME
Current Employee - Sales Representative in South Portland, ME

I have been working at Dr. Newton's Naturals

Pros

flexible with scheduling
good earning potential, if you can stick it out and become one of the "chosen".
casual dress code
They do not make an issue of unemployment compensation after they fire you.
ample free parking.

Cons

Favoritism toward certain "chosen" employees is rampant
Management does not care if other employees snag your commissions-see above.
inconsistant pricing offered to customers by different departments make playing fair tough, while the "chosen" ones have huge latitude on discounts to offer to "their" customers.
Lots of cliques. Feels like high school again.
HR and payroll departments incapable of processing promised payroll direct deposit.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen to some of your employees. Some of them are fairly smart, and they know what they are doing. Invest more time and structure into training,You get what you pay for.

    Respect your employees, have meetings, keep things consistent and promote those who do well and have good ideas, not people who are robots and dont have sales or sales management skills
