    I have been working at Red Ventures full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I've been at Red Ventures for 4+ years. I started in sales, have lived in three different cities and taken on new and exciting positions. The people who work here truly are amazing. The benefits are great, but that's not what it's about for me. I love that I'm around hilarious people who routinely challenge themselves to do more. Many of those that I started with have followed a similar track, working their way into associate, sales management, and marketing roles. I believe this to my core, am proof of it, and have seen it happen time and time again; this place provides awesome opportunities for people from all walks of life.

    Cons

    We're growing fast. The faster you grow, the harder it is to communicate and keep culture the same. The other side of that coin is that personal accountability from an employee side could be better. We need to continue finding new and innovative ways to communicate what we're doing, and reward those who are constantly challenging ourselves.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Even if you communicate well doesn't mean that everyone underneath you does. Make sure you're communicating often, consistently, and with accountability. The more people know, the more pride they have in the work they're doing.

    Poor late hours, hourly pay could be wat better, and team leaders could be better and more helpful.

    Pros

    Commission, after the initial learning curve one can make a decent monthly commission. Really dependent on how hard you work, is how much you make. Decent base bay but if that's what you want this job is not for you.

    Cons

    Cubicle fever, this is your typical call center work environment. You will sent in a cube your entire shift with the exception to use the bathroom and eat. As teams start doing better, they make the commission harder to achieve. For instance when you get better and should be making more you really make the same because they change the metrics.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to keep the commission the same, changing it every month to hinder top performers is not the best strategy even though it makes the company more money.

    Pros

    Opportunities for growth and chances to work on new project, company is growing, company retreats to caribbean, technology, the culture is great.

    Cons

    Location is far outside of Charlotte and not very convenient, management is constantly looking to improve performance, even if that means churning through existing sales employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Think about your sales agents too and not just corporate.

    I worked at Red Ventures full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    10 an hour, uncapped commission, win money every day at work by playing elementary schools games when you make a sales, awesome health benefits, good food for cheap price, meet new people everyday, awesome facilities ( gym, basketball court, bowling alley walking trail)

    Cons

    The company is racist you have an opportunity to advance in the company only if you are who they want to advance, meaning if you are not white blue haired or once was white you can forget it. They will fire you at will literally! If your maxing out your compensation plan but you do not meet the race requirement you will the be put on the watch list now the watch list usually means of good things such as making a lot of sales that is not what it means at 'RV' what it means is that you will be put on the watch list to find things to fire you on so they do not have to promote you or pay you. this could mean not following simple sales rules literally by changing a word from and to or; it could mean find you based upon your attendance that does not mean coming in late to work that does not mean leaving early that will entail your 30 minute break time that include your bathroom time if you were to exceed that 3 months out of 4 months and you will be fired and it does not matter if you have PTO or if you have what they call a personal allowances where you can use this as a day coming up 5 days away or if you've already earned it they will still fire you because you are not who they want to pay.they will pay you if you make under 2000 dollars every single month but if you start maxing out that compensation plan that means three thousand dollars or more you will be fired definitely if you are not wait so you can do this for 2 or 3 months but then you will start getting a lot of what they call compliance. You will start to be noted for your attendance whether it's 30 seconds or many even if you have a what they call a three minute buffer you will be fired

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    advice to a management stop using your employees for your beneficial gain such as getting lunch or working 12 hours because you don't want to come in and someone else that you like, and the company wants to promote asked for time off that day actually care about what your employers feel and if they are sick maybe you should help them if the job is so stressful that you're giving them bladder infections maybe you should let them use the bathroom stop taking away hour lunches making them 30 minutes and then giving them 30 minutes break time that does include your bathroom and maybe your turnover rate won't be 90 percent or above people do not want to work for you you put out all of this great basketball court all these lovely health requirements and benefits and everything but you won't pay them unless they meet your white race requirement your racist and you should probably fix that before someone besides myself who actually has power does a background check on your company and doesn't check on your employees and their emotions before you yourself get your final notice

    Pros

    Great money, uncapped commission. awesome work environment, benefits, perks. One of the coolest places to work in Charlotte. Play hard work hard mentality pays off most of the time.Company seems to want to spend money on employees via trips and incentives.

    Cons

    Business always comes first, even over customer, kind of just feel like a number. On the phones for 8+ hours a day. Does not care too much about customer experience. Definitely a young mans place to work also. Loud music Nerf guns, games etc. Hours can be rough. (off at 2am)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lay off on the mandatory overtime. Usually just ends up hurting numbers.
