I have been working at Red Ventures full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Coworkers, most managers, overall culture are great. Money is good. Still holding out for advancement opportunities..... We shall see!

Cons

Points based attendance is ridiculous. Outbound sales are stressful beyond words- definite shelf life.

Advice to Management

Remember that a lot of people go to RV to get their foot in the door not to work the phones forever!

    Pros

    Ilios is a good cafe, reasonable prices, changing menu selections. Opportunity to earn more than the $10 an hour base.

    Cons

    Commission is based on performance points, changes daily, there is a 2 page sheet to show earnings potential, impossible to project what you are earning until paid. Heavy stress, this is a sales environment, numbers constantly monitored and they effect commission and ability to keep your job. They all quote 5% turnover. My group of 8 is missing 3 in 90 days, little higher than 5%! Mass hiring and job fairs, hard to find people with tenure. You will work NIGHTS and WEEKENDS, hard to get 2 consecutive days off. Phones can be non-stop, one call to the next. Bathroom breaks are counted against your 30 minute break time per shift. Only job I have had where I hate going as you constantly hear employees talking about their numbers and fear of losing their jobs. Every document you will sign has the word "termination" on it, they do document to avoid unemployment.

    Advice to Management

    Agents are the most valuable asset, the dress code and VRC incentives are fun, some take longer than others to learn the program and perform and there is no flexibility built in for those that may be long term employees.

    I worked at Red Ventures full-time

    Pros

    The atmosphere is fun and everyone gets to play music while they sit in their cubicle. It seems like there are a lot of trips and incentives to working hard at RV. They play up their new, fancy building with a (tiny) workout room and a full sized basketball court.

    Cons

    This is a job, not a career path. If you want to work hard to make some money for a couple years, this may be the place for you. They pay you very little hourly wage during your training process, so hope you have some money saved in the bank to get you through those weeks.

    Some departments look okay, some had guys with backwards baseball caps on throwing the football around. Not exactly an inspiring place to excel your career.

    Advice to Management

    For what it is, RV seems to be doing extremely well. It will not be able to compete for employees with companies who offer amazing benefits and upward growth within the company.
