    I have been working at Feldco Factory Direct part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Pay of 9/hr that is in addition to a commission payment that increases .25% every $50,000 sold. Staff and managers are hilarious and very flexible and understanding.

    Cons

    A lot of the sales quotas are hard to meet in certain months depending on the promotion. A lot of luck is also involved since you call random numbers. Can go a long time without an appointment.

    I have been working at Feldco Factory Direct part-time

    Pros

    They have great communication with employees, awesome pot lucks and company parties.

    Cons

    It doesn't matter how many years experience you have, they start you off at the same hourly rate as everyone else.

    Advice to Management

    Don't allow young people to be supervisors. They come in and talk about their personal lives.

    I have been working at Feldco Factory Direct full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Working at Feldco is a fun environment, everyone is friendly an jokes with each other. My hours are perfect to where I still have my whole afternoon to do what I want. I am able to stay fit by unloading the trucks and sorting the products.

    Cons

    I do not have anything bad to say about Feldco I enjoy waking up and coming to work every morning.

    Advice to Management

    I do not have any advice for management, they are friendly, nice and down to earth. Randomly they will buy lunch for constantly doing a good job.

    Pros

    I wake up in the morning with a renewed enthusiasm for life, because I know Feldco is providing me with opportunities both short term and long term. Short term is that I'm afforded solid leads as a salesmen that allow me to represent a great brand and company. I can ask my customers to trust Feldco, because I do. Long term being my desire to pursue advancement within the company. Examples of growth are everywhere and I know there will be opportunities. That's a great feeling! I can't say there is one person I've met from top to bottom at Feldco that hasn't tried or at least offered their help or advice. Training is key.

    Cons

    I haven't been dissatisfied with any aspect. All has exceeded my expectations.

    Advice to Management

    I'm not a manager and nor do I feel it's my place to offer advice. I will say that every member of management I've been exposed to has helped me in some way or fashion. So I guess if I had to offer some, it's keep being available.

    None: new hires are for the summer leads, Only.

    Cons

    Descent compensation start until 2nd year and 60% (total sales force) won't make 2nd year.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing. You've perfected maximum exploitation. Get rid of the BBB F and the Angie's list C.
