    I worked at Jeffrey Charles NYC full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The office is energetic and motivational

    Cons

    Coming in early in the morning (2 hrs prior) for no apparent reason before you begin your day. Then you head out for a miserable day of door to door sales with no salary and a commission check that is pitiful. Then you have to go back to the office at the end of your work day to "review" the day with your team leader and supervisor.

    Advice to Management

    Do not advertise the job as something that it isn't and do not advertise salary along with commission which is not the pay structure.

    I worked at Jeffrey Charles NYC full-time

    Pros

    Your own schedule, when working with clients

    Cons

    Its straight commission so anything that is promised is not a guarantee, but all possibilities. Something to consider when your paying bills

    Advice to Management

    while its great to create employment for people who may need a job, this type of business practice is not great in the long term

    Everyone that worked there was really friendly, but the office was really small and the set up isnt very nice.

    It was a terrible place, the manager did not pay me after I stopped working there. The hours were terrible. The company is a scam.

    I have been working at Jeffrey Charles NYC full-time

    Pros

    Had the ability to travel through the greatest city in the world. Met a lot of investing people, had a ton of fun and met cool employees.

    Cons

    Door to door sales. It was horrible, management was not the best. There was never any follow through, brain washing.

    Advice to Management

    Follow through more, do what you say you will do. Hold others accountable for their actions.

    I worked at Jeffrey Charles NYC full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Learned impulse sales, felt personally recognized and appreciated. Developed a go-getter attitude. Met some awful people who lied about our pay.

    Cons

    The hours. 7:30am to 9pm or later on "team nights" was just too much. Never received a single check from them, was denied a promotion after being 3 minutes late for work from train delays, and forced to spend my own money on lunches and metro cards that were never reimbursed. There is no base pay, no sick days, and no benefits, and no employee support. This clearly was a short term job, when the oldest employee was only a few months old that told me everything.

    Advice to Management

    Work on keeping your employees around so you can finally promote someone. Pay your employees when you say you're going to. Follow through on your word.

    Pros

    The other people. Straight up, the people who succeed at this business are the happiest ones around. While I was there, being around them was great and really improved my day. I very much enjoyed people around me.

    Cons

    The pay. I mean, oh my God. People: this is a door to door sales job. Which is hard. And tiring. And sometimes aggravating. And all you want at the end of the week is a paycheck. This does not happen. You get commision of the sales you made. Oh yeah, there's a base salary, but that's literally assuming that you do 4 or 5 sales, with which you would have made the same amount of money on the commision. So that's just not even real. The fact that they say there's a base salary really aggravated me. Every time I had to tell it to someone new I felt like I was lying. Its such garbage. If you got paid on every order you did then yeah, you might be able to make some money. But since we are actually a third party to the client we are doing sales for, pushing them through and not having them get cancelled for some absurd reason is shockingly hard. So you'll do 5 or 6 sales and end up getting paid for 2 or 3 of them and ending up with half the money you expected or less. And unfortunately the owner has taken to not bothering to deal with any of the messed up orders regardless of how hard you worked to get it done. So you could spend 4 or more hours with one customer and end up with zero for that time investment despite that all the work you did was on point. So even though there is no paycheck, and you only get paid for your work; you DONT end up getting paid for your work like half the time. So on your interview, you poor recent college grad, when they tell you there is a base salary, remember that you can absolutely can, and most likely will at some point, end up with a zero dollar check. Even if you did sales. Also, on your interview, if you do decide you want the job, it's yours. They would hire a dead animal at this point. But if you have bills to pay, find something else. Its too hard to get paid on the sales until they improve this campaign.

    Advice to Management

    In order to promote people, which apparently is the entire point of the business, you need to keep them around. Which you have not been able to do as of yet, which is why you have promoted no one this year. Please don't lie to new recruits, or tell people to lie to the recruits about the base salary. Dont lead them to believe that they can actually rely on a check when they certainly cannot. The base salary has such major stipulations that it is effectively non existent. I understand why there cannot be a base without guidelines; cause then no one would work, but just make sure that people know what they're getting into, and dont think they'll always be getting paid, cause we both know the truth. Also, remember to continue valuing the people you have, and not forgetting them amidst the wave of new people who won't last a week.

    I worked at Jeffrey Charles NYC full-time

    Pros

    Jeffrey Charles has a great work atmosphere. So if you're not looking for the typical "cubical" work environment it's a great place to be. Really wanted to get some experience right out of college and "pump up" my resume. Met some great people, gained valuable skills, and made a great network of business owners.

    Cons

    Unfortunately you can't be lazy haha. It is a performance based position meaning no BS days it hurts you more than anyone if you have bad work ethic with this company. The harder you work the more you get paid. If you're a lazy bum this isn't the position for you. If you're an entrepreneur, Congrats. this position would be great for you.

    Advice to Management

    None! The owners that were there upon my leaving were pretty cool, down to earth human beings.
