I worked at Pampered Chef as a contractor (Less than a year)

Pros

Support and equipment was very accessible in my situation, I had a ride the sales meetings from my recruiter. I never left a meeting without some good food and learning something new.

Cons

It was almost impossible to market college students while I was living in the dorms. There were only a handful of products students would find useful, and I was a small fish in big pond with no sales experience on where and when to begin. I had no car.

Advice to Management

Other than cold calls and family, team up with the student to educate them on the products more and maybe create a "dorm kit" to offer students.

    I have been working at Pampered Chef part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Straightforward selftraining dvds but the best way to learn how to throw a party is to attend one. And buy the large startup kit -- its worth the slightly higher cost then sell any items you dont want to keep at your first party at 10% off

    Cons

    Had none! It was exactly what I expected and payment was prompt.

    Advice to Management

    More order forms! After a couple shows it's easy to run out.
