    I worked at Warehouse Demo Services part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Quality interactions with Costco members and an awesome management team at WDS. Great opportunity for people who are looking for a second job or have retired from their previous career yet still enjoy interacting with the public.

    Cons

    Only part-time is offered unless you're a manager. It is necessary for most demonstrators to have a second job along with WDS in order to meet all their financial needs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Solid management overall. WDS should allow management to buy a higher glove quality for the demonstrators, especially demonstrators who need to wear XL gloves.

    I worked at Warehouse Demo Services part-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    start at $11 an hour. paid training. relatively easy. shifts aren't too long. Coworkers were really cool, in my experience at least. They also make a good effort to make sure you get paid for every minute you work.

    Cons

    Job is taken way too seriously by people in charge. No real pay advance. Little opportunity to move up. Have to deal with incredibly rude and incompetent customers. Also, you are essentially working at a soup kitchen. There are a very large amount of regulars who buy nothing and leech off your samples.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop creating such a hectic work environment for a simple job.

    Pros

    Short shifts, easy job nothing much to really do. They

    Cons

    They treat you worse than dirt. Will cancel your shifts mid week and are utterly unreliable in every aspect. I am happy they were bought out.

    I worked at Warehouse Demo Services full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

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

    Cons

    All 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 ManagementAdvice

    Not 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.

    I worked at Warehouse Demo Services full-time

    Pros

    Great 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!!!

    Cons

    Terrible 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 ManagementAdvice

    Regional 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
