    Don't value employees contribution,,,, no matter how great a job you did,,, you really were not recognized by management.

    Advice to Management

    Pros

    Developed great relationships with stores
    At first making own schedule
    Honed some skills along the way

    Cons

    No advancement opportunity what so ever - even in your imagination ... nothing was able going to be gained.
    Poor or inconsistent feedback
    Serious lack of communication that was actually provoked by certain people to gain privilege
    Lack of real concern for people or issues
    Ask for input and then systematically ignore or assume ideas without giving credit

    Advice to Management

    What at first was an opportunity to evolve was soon squashed by incredibly poor taste, bad manners, a lack of real leadership on the part of this company. After some thought, what could and should have been great was undermined by ego and selfishness and flat out bad management. Honestly you could pull this scenario out of a text book of what not to do. The fact that this is has been ignored for a prolonged period of time is the reason this product is not producing adequately and that doesn't seem to want to change as they don't want to change the management that is fostering the problem.


  3. Okay part-time job for fun

    Pros

    Contracted so made my own hours. I learned about working in wholesale and communicating/working with accounts. Put some b2b experience under my belt.

    Cons

    Contracted (1099) so paid heavy taxes on my own, no health insurance, and received no compensation for miles driven. In the end, what I was keeping after all that wasn't even enough to pay for my health insurance. Job was almost a wash in pay. For one trip to the meeting, the consultants had to bunk four to a room. Also the company had only temporarily become hugely successful because Oprah said she was wearing their bra on her show once. Once that excitement died down, so did the sales. The quality of the garments was good, but the fit wasn't the best. The lingerie market is highly competitive. The company was sold recently so maybe the direction will change.

    Advice to Management

    Communication was poor between the consultants and corporate, and the compensation wasn't going to retain top talent.

    Pros

    The pay is decent. The flexibility is great, especially if you have kids. You make your own hours.

    Cons

    Job instability. Outrageous quotas and low mileage pay.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to problem solve vs. lets just fire everyone.

    Pros

    The people there are friendly and warm.
    The job was not overly difficult.
    Very supportive coworkers.

    Cons

    Work became repetitive.
    At times, expectations were a bit unclear. (could be a positive)

    Advice to Management

    Laying down some concrete guidelines would be helpful.
    It was a pleasure to work with the staff, keep up the friendly atmosphere.

    Pros

    Met a few nice people that I still keep in touch with today, but like myself they are no longer working there...surprise, surprise.

    Cons

    Dictatorship, no room for advancement unless you're willing to be a suck up. Little or no benefits to working here. Bad reputation in the industry.

    Advice to Management

    When you tell your people that you want their input you should actually mean it. You had some very loyal, dedicated people who ended up being tossed aside like yesterday's news. You should treat people better.
