    Pros

    You work in a sams club, kroger or costco so you don't have to bring lunch

    Cons

    Lied about hours, told me it would full time about 40hrs, i worked 12 hr days sometimes 6 days a week and barely crossed min wage on paychecks Cliques like in highschool. Manger only focused on you if she liked you and you fit in with all the other brainwashed robots They told me 6 figures in 9 months. I knew people who were there over a year still selling stuff in a sams club comparing that they couldn't afford...

    Pros

    If your someone who is excited and motivated to learn and grow both professionally and personally this is a great opportunity. In a short amount of time I saw myself develop skills I never knew I had. Although I left the business, my time here has helped me immensely in my new career path. It's a fun environment full of positive people.

    Cons

    If you're looking for a nine to five where you can do the minimum and just walk out with a pay check, this isn't the place for you.

    Advice to Management

    Keep building genuine connections with your employees, that's what truly made my experience great and what helped me grow.

    Pros

    Aha! Hey, most ppl are going to be drawn the negatives (that's clear by the amt of action the negative reviews get compared to positive), but if you're the type of person who will take a negative (the 'real story) anecdote over a positive (the "fluffy") one then you should seriously not even bother continuing to interview w peridot. The growth won't make sense, the events won't make sense, the meetings won't make sense,...

    Cons

    People quit on their worst day (it should be the opposite so that they really know it's not for them) often without really understanding why they're quitting. They quit because it's hard --hey, running events is hard so learning how to run those events should be similarly hard. It's a lot of time invested, a lot of educating yourself to become a good businessperson, it's analyzing challenges daily to be getting better...

    Pros

    Fun team atmosphere, nice coworkers. You will learn a lot in a shirt time.

    Cons

    You essentially work at sam's club, cold calling people, but in person.

    Advice to Management

    Be more up front about what the job actually entails. It's selling things in a sam's club, not a marketing company.

    I worked at Peridot Promotions

    Pros

    I was able to learn so much about business/marketing that I didn't learn while majoring in marketing in college. The option to travel if you want was the most rewarding part, I was even able to travel to different leadership conferences and enjoy a boat cruise after promotion. I am so grateful to have joined this company out of college and constantly am being asked how I lucked out. I would recommend this company to...

    Cons

    There are a lot of people who think they are right for the job but just aren't, they aren't committed to learning and take advantage of the opportunities so there is some negativity when the wrong person joins the office. Luckily that happens often because the interviewing process weeds out a lot of people not fit for business management.

    Advice to Management

    The positive atmosphere is fantastic, and the mentoring you provide/resources to grow are amazing.

    Pros

    They are super nice people when you're buying what they're selling. They're fun, outgoing, energetic and really believe what they're saying.

    Cons

    Everything else. The pay is atrocious at minimum wage but you're promised that your "merit based" pay will be better. It's not. In my entire time there, I never saw anyone hit it out of the park. They claim sales isn't important until you want to be a leader. Then you have to sell $600-$800 twice to qualify. If you can do that in the first week you will instantly be promoted even if you suck at actually managing anything....

    Advice to Management

    Grow up. Stop playing at being a business owner and actually strive to be one. The shady tactics can only get you by for so long until people see through you. And if someone comes to you with a concern, telling them it's irrelevant just goes to prove that you were in the wrong because you couldn't explain it away. Details don't matter to people when they don't benefit that person.

    Pros

    Everyone is young, outgoing, fun-ish

    Cons

    This is the most bizarre place I have ever been apart of. Pay is $7.50/hr unless you sell gobs of whatever cheesy product they are making you push... And best senario you're going to make $10/hr. You're going to be in a Costco or Sam's Club for 10 hours a day by yourself pushing some product that is a crock. They'll tell you in the interview process that you'll work "some weekends" -- read that as EVERY weekend. Most...

    Advice to Management

    Try to provide a little more transparency to those applying and interviewing. Your job postings are completely misleading.

    Pros

    Everyone is EXTREMELY welcoming, helpful, and nice! The interview process really gives you a decent look at the ENTRY LEVEL position. (Don't let all the different fancy job titles fool you....everyone starts at the bottom, doing the exact same job.)

    Cons

    Pretty much everything is a negative. It's a $7.50/hour unless your commission pay is high enough, but the commission percentages are only beneficial for the manager and top leaders. They expect a ton of extra work (conference calls, shift break downs, etc.) off the clock and during "non-business" hours. I'm sorry but calling me at 9:00pm is not professional. It sounds great in theory, but when you really look into...

    Advice to Management

    The commission structure would have been nice to know before orientation. Please don't have all the job title listings as junior account manager, assistant account manager, ect. That's not at all what people get after they get hired....
