Sales Specialist

Sales Specialist (Current Employee) Mountain View, CA

ProsThe discounts on products are phenomenal. The company values are awesome. The camaraderie is great-everyone is more than willing to help out their teammates. The product quality is very good and the training and training resources leave little room for inadequacy. They are very accommodating with availability=work/life balance.

ConsThe pay rate is a bit low. The product discounts make up for the low pay, but that does not pay bills! It is also sometimes hard to get enough hours to make the paycheck work. When trying to promote, it seems that people who aren't willing to relocate are somewhat penalized.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
