I worked at 2nd Wind Exercise Equipment full-time (More than 5 years)
Selling using a consultative selling process to sell high end equipment, not low end product. Sales training at the time was great. Compensation plan was clear and not open to interpretation. Managers can make a good living if they sell fitness.
Working odd hours is always going to be a con when working retail. Benefits were not the best when I was working there. Tony Enrico about drove the business into the ground but I hear that has been fixed. Not much upward mobility.
Advice to Management
Work to get a better benefit package program. Bring back the consultative selling training. Bring back the awards, they go a lot further to motivate employees vs pay.
Applied, had a phone interview and then a onsite interview with the district manager, then a phone interview with the owner, then the executive vice president also over the phone. Right after my interview with the executive vice president, I was offered the job. Whole process only took about 4 days start to finish.
