    I worked at Omaha Steaks part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Flexible, great discount, awesome people to work with. This is a great part-time job. I would recommend it to everyone.

    I worked at Omaha Steaks part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    ONLY benefit is the employee discount

    Cons

    If you are truly customer oriented and get satisfaction out of selling what the CUSTOMER wants then skip this company as you are forced to sell customers what the COMPANY wants them to buy. When sales goals are not reached i.e. bad weather, economy etc.. it is the fault of the employee.

    Advice to Management

    You will learn REAL fast that as a store manager, the position is in title only. Managers have little to say or do on running the store as it is 100% what corporate requires you to do.

  5. Outbound Phone Sales

    I worked at Omaha Steaks full-time

    Pros

    Great training... You should be able to sell steaks over the phone after the week training program The food is pretty good and you get it for pretty cheap

    Cons

    They make you sell to everyone. Wanted me to sell to sick people. I don't care if it is a fake excuse I'm sure a lot of the people couldn't afford the expensive food.

    Advice to Management

    Don't force your employees to sell to people that are sick. Listen to employees more and pay a little bit better.

    I worked at Omaha Steaks (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great discount, excellent product and hours weren't bad.

    Cons

    Poor upper management, medical benefits were not that great, poor technology and tools for employees.

    Advice to Management

    Change the structure of how you goal individual stores! Much too often goals were a blanket amount for every store instead of goaling each store against LY numbers like most retail stores do. Most times, the goals were unattainable.

    I have been working at Omaha Steaks (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Family company. Good discount and quality products.

    Cons

    Very behind technology-wise. Scare resources in terms of personnel, computers, good software, etc. Pretty low paying jobs for the amount of work that is expected. Not a lot of promotion or mobility potential. Benefits have been steadily decreasing in the last 8 years. Professional development and training is lacking.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize employees more for the constant work they put in. Improve benefits. Bring fun and excitement into the workplace.

    Pros

    Working with great people everyday is a plus. Hard working and dedicated co-workers made it easy to go to work. Store manager was amazing.

    Cons

    Monthly "Goals" were not realistic and sometimes even laughable. It appeared no one in the "regional" office had any clue about the actual sales of each store.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of antiquated monthly goals. If you want a good salesman, don't make them try to get each customer to spend $100.

    I worked at Omaha Steaks part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Discount on items. Good pay compared to other retail companies.

    Cons

    You have to know your schedule almost a month and a half before (example: If I want to take off in July 2015, you would need to know by half way through May 2015). The company doesn't care about it's employees bonuses. Bonuses are literally almost impossible to reach since there are so many promotions that cut the price down too much. End of the year evaluation for your "raise" is horrible, if you have a few bad months in numbers don't get your hopes up/

    Advice to Management

    Stop doing 10 price specials at the same time. I was trying to study for classes while trying to study 10 different prices for one of the many products. The customers are too familiar with the cheap prices so when they increase the price customer volume will decrease. "Family Owned Company" is the reason, they just don't care.
