Current Employee - Assistant Manager in Miami, FL
Current Employee - Assistant Manager in Miami, FL
No opinion of CEO

Pros

Fast paced environment if you enjoy that sort of thing. There is a lot of shipment to sort and customer service is top priority.

Cons

Secret shops occur a lot in the company, and sometimes information is fully transferred within the employees. Training is also a pain, seeing as payroll isn't always too great.

Advice to Management

Must be very patient, outgoing and customer service oriented. Not an easy job, and seeing as we hire 16 year old kids, it's even harder to manager.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Flexible hours
    Working with people
    Employee discount
    Day goes by quicker because you're constantly busy
    If you like to work alone this is the job for you

    Cons

    Managers and DMs aren't very nice or helpful. Your training consists of watching a couple videos and taking tests on them and after that you're on your own. Your hard work is never good enough because you're constantly having to raise your ADS and UPT. If you don't make your sales your hours get cut down until they basically don't exist. They want you to quit but they don't want to fire you! Catty atmosphere where anything you make a mistake on or don't get finished gets you written up. It is quite frankly a scary place to work! You definitely get snide remarks if you're not dressed like you're going out on a friday night, and leave it to the managers to have you ring up someone who only buys something for 5.00 so that their ADS and UPT don't drop but yours will!

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees with more respect. Encourage them and tell them how to do better instead of just running them off for actually trying to help people get what they want instead of stuffing more unnecessary things down their throat just to make an extra buck.
