I worked at Plum District as a contractor for less than a year

Pros

lots of spiffs and contests to earn cash, gift cards.
Good regional training sessions and opportunity to meet peers in area

Cons

couldn't predict when deals would run - hard to tell client when it'll run when your Regional Manager has authority to change it for any reason. Better deals may bump your deal - even into another month. Hard to predict pay that way.

    CEO, Megan is mean and belittles sales people and managers in front of others, used to get the entire team on a call and give sales reviews to individual managers.

    Have to use your own lap-top and office equipment
    If you are not located in San Fran don't expect to get promoted or taken seriously
    Fired all management expect a few chosen ones only to rehire a few months later
    Poor business plan
    Sales goals are not clear and defined

    I feel like I work for free, that my talents are being used and abused. Husband says this isn't a job, it's a hobby. Ha

    I have been working at Plum District as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    Flexibility, No sales quotas or pressure to produce

    Cons

    You don't get paid for your hard work leading up to the sale. Then, your deal you sold runs and not too many people buy, you are left with not much of a reward for your hard work

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer DCs full time positions, pay them what they are worth

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
