HORRIBLE WASTE OF TIME.

Sales (Former Employee)
Glen Ellyn, IL

Pros* Positive morning meetings
But its just about how you can see a positive view of how to make more sales.

*They teach you the tricks to make people buy the products you will be selling

Cons*They will turn you in to a cookie cut android to repeat and repeat the same lines for 6 to 8 hrs
*You will be working on your feet all day
*After working here for 1 month you will be done with all the growth you can in this company
*You are force to go to an early morning meeting then go to your home and work at 2pm
*After you leave work, they will keep calling you during your free time
*their pay is 8.25 and hour OR Commission of 18% but its divided between the whole people working that booth
WARNING:
they will pay 8.25 and hour or commission they said like 100$ a day but with the commissions are just so low you will be working your day off to make that amount so is extremely hard.
*You will feel that is a very sad environment for people to work I kite honestly felt it was the worst place I have work at I saw a guy who is in his 30 he was married and had a kid all I felt for him was sadness how can he make any $ for his wife and kids.
This job is for teenagers not University Grad. I felt sad for a lot of people there.
*Its a very humiliated job for people
they will take your whole day!!!
Normal day example:
Tuesday go to meeting 8am! get up at 6am to get ready because they force you to use a full suit to the meeting or full Business professional for women.
Meeting starts at 8am finish by 9:15 - 9:30 am then either A or B option

Option A:
Go Change clothing to normal clothes wear so you can sell in Sam Costco etc. Soaps, Flat hair irons and give sample of food. start working from 10 till 4-8pm

After you leave you have to talk to 3 people on the phone to see how the sales went.

Option B:
After meeting go home 3hrs the go start work 2pm till night. and get up early next day to go to a force meeting! its ridiculous!!!!!
and of course they call after once you are at home.

Personally I have never felt like I felt in this job before, just so sad and angry after work

8.25$ AN HOUR AND THEY EXPECT YOU TO SHOW EVERY MORNING IN NICE SUITS...
Very ridiculous

Advice to Senior ManagementPay your employers more money like 12$ hour you are expecting them to show in suits give them enough so they can afford them.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
