Great if you never want to advance your career. Dead end job

Supervisor (Former Employee)

I worked at Warehouse Demo Services full-time

ProsGreat team atmosphere with your demonstrators. Great working with Costco store management and team members. Great set hours rather than retail hours. Liberal lateral transfer opportunities. Thank goodness they were bought by CDS!!!

ConsTerrible lag time in resolutions or responses for any requests from regional manager and corporate. Reviews were 90% subjective and had no measurable FU actions. So, each review was on something new and impossible to achieve for the next review.The review process was really run like a Mom & Pop company. No possibility of advancement from this position. Very weak management support.

Advice to Senior ManagementRegional managers, and corporate positions would be better filled with internal candidates that have actual first hand demo experience/vendor experience. Hopefully CDS management runs things better than WDS

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

The Company has since been acquired by CDS (Club Demo Services)

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Kirkland, WA

I worked at Warehouse Demo Services full-time for more than a year

ProsYour co-workers are nice and the relaxed dress code (this also meant some people came to work in sweats)

ConsAll the positions are underpaid. The senior management besides Ted (CEO) and Brent (CFO) lacked some serious focus and professional attitude (they only cared about hitting their numbers & quotas for their bonus).

Advice to Senior ManagementNot much can be said to the CEO & CFO; they were good. It was the other upper management that were unrealistic and unfair. This got worse when the company was acquired and some managers attempted to save their jobs.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

100% honest review

Demonstrator (Former Employee)
Norwalk, CA

I worked at Warehouse Demo Services part-time for more than a year

Prosfun job
easy money
you work during the day
get paid $11/hr starting
learn to cook

Consdidn't make enough money to wipe my behind
favoritism was strong
worked 12 hours a week
greedy customers

Advice to Senior Managementfind an automated system that schedules the employees since you supposedly schedule people based off of their sales. The favoritism was RIDICULOUS at my location. it was just plain wrong for everybody else to work 1 or 2 days a week while the manager's friend(s) worked 5-6 days a week.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

It is fun working with the public

Sales Representative (Current Employee)
West Valley City, UT

I have been working at Warehouse Demo Services part-time for more than a year

ProsThe products are fun and easy to sell.

ConsThe Management will tell one thing and then not follow through. They change the schedule
 many times in a week and then get upset if you don't know that you are scheduled.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Fun fast paced job.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Warehouse Demo Services

ProsMembers can be a lot of fun. You don't need to bring your lunch to work. Great team atmosphere.

ConsBusy holiday season then comes the slow down when you don't get to work much. Breaker shifts are tough if you live far from your job site.

Advice to Senior ManagementGive feedback to demonstrators quicker. Try to book more off season demos also please. Part time employees still need to work year round.

Sweet face-paced fun

Assistant Supervisor (Former Employee)
Garden Grove, CA

I worked at Warehouse Demo Services full-time for more than 3 years

ProsFriendly, enjoyable, rewarding job where you are interacting with members and getting their opinions on the products being offered and getting to know them all at the same time. Fun and easy job with excellent starting pay!

ConsTime expectancy for product, employee. And member complaints, not enough benefits for all employees.

Advice to Senior ManagementStart offering a better benefit package and more hours to employees.
