Terrible Experience

Regional Sales Manager (Former Employee)
Baltimore, MD

I worked at Plum District full-time for less than a year

ProsWork from home
Made connections with female sales pro's in other parts if the country

ConsCEO, 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.
Expect you to work 24-7 for very little pay
E-mails were sent to Managers at all hours of the night, would wake up with a full in-box of e-mails received from 1AM - 4AM
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
Often ask Managers to step down into unpaid part-time sales people
Unrealistic Expectations in an uncertain industry

Advice to Senior ManagementDeal with Megan
Set clear goals for employees
Stop Firing at will

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Woefully unqualified CEO + zero leaders with any online ecommerce experience = Disaster

Former Corporate Office Employee (Former Employee)
San Francisco, CA

I worked at Plum District full-time for more than a year


Pros: Opportunity to learn about chaos and fast-paced environment of start-up Lunch 3… Cons: CEO is smart but not qualified to run the company and a board who would talk about her behind her back but never removed her Botched… Advice to Senior Management: Since Plum District isn't hiring, and management doesn't really care about views of anyone, just that I will remember my experience here and never work… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More

They are Just Plum Dumb

Regional Manager (Former Employee)
San Francisco, CA

I worked at Plum District full-time for less than a year


Pros: Talented female Regional Managers. Work from home position. Cons: Misrepresented Regional Manager compensation in the interview process. Constantly changed compensation and goal structures to not have to pay both Regional Managers and District Consultants.… Advice to Senior Management: Go find some new jobs. The company won't be around… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
