I have been working at Plum District full-time

Pros

As a sales rep, you gain experience in all aspects of the sales cycle and territory management:
- prospecting
- cold calling
- business & market plan development
- territory development
- marketing events
- working with business owners to craft a daily deal that works for their ROI
- telecommuting
- CRM
It was exciting to be part of something new and growing.

Cons

It felt more like an internship than a real position as a full-time sales rep. There was little to no support for sales reps, and constant changing of the company mission. It was difficult to adhere to corporate strategies, as they were ever-changing. There was also minimal training, so unless you are a self-starter and motivator, you have no chance of succeeding or making money.

    I have been working at Plum District part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Flexibility of schedule, low pressure sales, ability to work from home, offers moms a good work/life balance while using skillset.

    Cons

    Decrease in commission structure, you are required to not only sell and close a deal but then you are only paid if your offer sells in your area which does not always happen.

    Advice to Management

    Maintain clear and consistent rules and regulations in all areas.

    I have been working at Plum District part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The only good thing about this company is the other employees. The connections that are made in your local communities with the businesses that you will partner with.

    Cons

    An ever changing (and not for the better) compensation package. Division Directors that are so money hungry and have been drinking the Kool Aid for so long that they don't realize or just don't care how they treat their sales people and all of their recently fired regional managers.

    Advice to Management

    Stop abusing moms and get rid of your "for moms by moms" tag line as it is not a true testament of how you treat people. Do everyone a favor and file bankruptcy now so as to save more of your hard working employees the embarrassment of being let go suddenly and without just cause.
