    "Sales Representative"

    StarStarStarStarStar
      Former Employee - Sales Consultant in Wilmington, NC

      I worked at CastleBranch full-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      Pretty much like a high school. Breaks whenever you want, bean bag chairs, ping pong, and minimal management.

      Cons

      Pay is terrible. Management is more of a babysitting crew there to make sure you hit your call numbers per day and not interested in teaching/helping you how to sell the products.

      Advice to Management

      Hire people who can be respected.

      We listened. We had heard this similar type of comment in the past so earlier this year we brought in a fantastic leader for sales who has steadily been making changes and improvements. Hitting call goals is no longer a must. If you are doing your job the numbers will be reflective ...

      I worked at CastleBranch

      Pros

      Bagel Monday Drink anytime you want...even after hours skeeball ping pong games that lasted all day

      Cons

      You get let go due to "budget reasons" after two years, but then find out they have a hiring spree two weeks later and said that you could apply again. That makes zero sense dumb people. Just keep me on and release the new people that I just trained to bring into the company. Thank you for letting go of a solid worker and trainer for your company.

      Advice to Management

      Wait....there's management here? I saw ZERO of this from my time there. ZERO.

      I worked at CastleBranch full-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      Free bagel Monday. Super gossipy co workers, so there is definitely a lot of communication between employees. The extremely poor pay allows employees to develop great budgeting experience. The gym allows for lovely loud rap music to be heard on all floors throughout the day. Super comfortable chairs in downstairs allow for easy napping experiences. If you have a craving for what dirt put through a coffee filter tastes...

      Cons

      Castlebranch was required to hire X number of people by the city of wilmington, because they paid for their building. Basically as long as they keep this revolving door of employees rolling the city won't come down on them. They have a department that sells exclusively to colleges and universities that make them boatloads of money, anyone else who isn't in that division is irrelevant, and they don't try to hide that fact.

      Advice to Management

      Not that you'll read it, but it gets old hearing them talk about how creative and innovate they are while we sell products that can't compete in the market because they are wayyy too expensive or too wildly inefficient. Invest in a lead system that doesn't involve your reps calling the same HR departments every single week. Also, stop hiring people in operations to management positions in sales, who clearly know nothing...

      I worked at CastleBranch

      Pros

      Ping pong tables, food trucks, free unlimited coffee, I'm really struggling to come up with the twenty word minimum required to leave this review

      Cons

      Poor training (she's arrogant and loves herself almost as much as Kanye loves himself). INCREDIBLY boring. Cold calling to company's human resources departments (nearly all of which consider you a waste of their time) terrible pay, vague requirements from superiors who expect unattainable goals. Awful all in all.
