    Positive Outlook

    I worked at Quten Research Institute part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    They had a good base pay... even without hitting quota. If you hit quota... you got a NICE comission. Work was always in Costco stores at the time. I loved working inside Costco; loved seeing the same shoppers over the course of the year or so I worked that gig. And LOVED hearing the stories of people who had bought the product, were seeing positive results and were so happy I had sold them!
    An EXCELLENT product I still believe in and recommend to friends and family.

    Cons

    Well... it's sales. there is pressure to meet quota. Then they started taking away some of our tools.... Like we couldn't show customers verified clinical studies that showcased benefits. Company introduced a similar product (also for sale at Costco) that undercut the product we could get comission/credit for.

    Advice to Management

    Fair pay on one hand.... don't compete with your own salesforce on the other.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Quten Research Institute part-time

    Pros

    Great job for retired people or students with a school schedule looking for a flexible part time job

    Cons

    Poor training, sales reps are unethical and tell downright lies.

    Advice to Management

    Vet employees more thoroughly, monitor them more actively.

    I worked at Quten Research Institute part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Meeting new people and independence on the work floor

    Cons

    Sales expectations were too high for the territory I covered at Costco, where bargain hunters know this product is not your best for the buck,


  4. "Great company, generous compensation, but you got to love sales."

    Pros

    Great pay, hours plus comission, get to help out people with their health problems.

    Cons

    Very exhausting after the second year, comes to a point where you get tired of asking people to buy you.

    Advice to Management

    race to commission for the mega, you can do better than $1/pills.


  5. "If you can handle sales in Costco its a pretty straight forward job."

    Neutral Outlook

    I worked at Quten Research Institute part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Most people come in to buy the supplement in pill form anyways so usually its not all too hard to get them to consider a liquid form.

    Cons

    Sometimes dealing with all the materials and liquids for the displays can become a hassle and getting reimbursed for little things are somewhat of a hassle (photos of receipts over the net).

    I worked at Quten Research Institute as a contractor

    Pros

    They sell a great product. Alot of people are learning about CoQ10 and by doing the demo's you educate the customer's as to why it's important. Costco employees are great to work with

    Cons

    Standing on your feet for 8 hours. Upper managerment (VP of sales) says make quota or be removed from the schedule (fired). Some warehouse are easier make quota in then others. You only work 2 days per week.

    Advice to Management

    Be nicer to the staff that is creating you money. Don't treat all warehouses the same.
