      Fun Job, Great for Commissions

      Apr 14, 2021 - Sales Representative

      Pros

      The commissions were great - they were on a sliding scale. The manager was nice, and I had a good time working there.

      Cons

      Since you worked at an independent store on your own you might only see your manager every other week or so. This was fine as long as you didn't have any problems, but if you had an issue there was no one there to help you right away.

      Pros

      literally none. dont work here.

      Cons

      No organization. No training. No systems. Everyone has their own spreadsheet of history which is never accurate. Literally no one keeps track of anything and cross-functional teams are constantly fighting and adding meetings to calendars to try and figure out "forecasting." Even if you do forecast correctly and have all the work to back it up, if people don't agree with it, they make you re-do it from scratch. Directors are especially lazy, they get promoted due to favoritism and kissing up to HR. That being said, you can also not trust HR, as they will go behind your back and gossip about you if you do raise an issue.
