Pros

30 percent discount on products, increase knowledge of health, beauty and weightloss...decent hours, direct deposit, opportunities to advance in the company, commission on some products

Cons

very, very low pay (pretty much minimum wage) the products that they want you t sell the most of will not earn you commission...reprimanded if youre not hitting your numbers all the time

Advice to Management

reward and appreciate sales associates

    Pros

    -Relaxed workenvironment.
    -You're by yourself, so you don't have to worry about any annoying fellow employees.
    -Extensive company training, most of the info is learned on the job as well through repetition.
    -Fair pay for the work you do.
    -Very reasonable work hours.

    Cons

    -Pay for managers is menial.
    -Senior Store Managers and regional sales directors never have a clear idea on what to agree on.
    -Even the word "planograms" makes my skin crawl.
    -The stocking routine is faulty for some stores.
    -Made unreasonable demands some times.
    -Any managers above store managers are generally very conceited.

    Advice to Management

    Planograms take place too often and are mostly irrational. Make it good, make it last for a while. Sometimes, I'd think planograms were to be done just to give employees something to do.

    Pros

    Nothing. They sucked they say to only work when punched in but yet want stuff done that is unable to complete in 40 hours....place is a joke.

    Cons

    Everything, I got two weeks of training. Basically what they train their sales associates. I didn't understand anything!

    Advice to Management

    Training your team!!!!!!!!!! And stop telling your team that you are going to come to the store to assist/train and never show up...
