    Pros

    good work environment, can advance in this company

  5. "Potential for a considerate amount of income but extremely stressful"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    They have great pay and are offering benefits that would attract the initial gullible job seeker. It was nice being able to make extra amounts of money

    Cons

    Crazy work environment( loud music,people yelling and screaming), Contract position( you can get fired in a heartbeat due to a variety of causes), every man for himself” mentality once the sugar coated training is done

    Advice to Management

    There is not much management can do as their voices are seldom heard. The stress coupled with obnoxious and rude customers daily is enough to break even the strongest of workers

    Pros

    Great work environment and they higher from within mostly. Mostly inbound calls. No cold calling.

    The inside sales role offer mostly 2nd shift hours for new employees, so if you are looking for a first shift job this may not be for you.

    I worked at Red Ventures full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    They will hire anyone who can pass a drug test, health benefits, 401k, amazing pay for a few, average for the most and $15 an hour for the rest.

    Cons

    Management is comprised of former sales agents who were average to below average performers

    0 transparency

    Sales floor is looked down on

    "1 place to work in Charlotte" ***if you are on the tech side or upper management***

    Turnover rate for sales agents is 90% and they get treated as disposable positions

    Tim made a huge announcement about pay structures and how the new changes would not affect overall pay amount. Ric Elias hosted a conference telling the top performers that they were entitled. When they new pay structure rolled out, take home pay was down 50%. This all happened during the holiday season....... when sales agents brought up the concerns to direct management, we were told that we had been getting paid too much before.

    Great starter job for sales. Get your experience and find a real job. Not a sustainable company for sales.

    Advice to Management

    You never listened before, so why would you start now?

    I worked at Red Ventures full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great office space and lots of parking.

    Cons

    Worst experience ever! A lot of young, inexperienced people in “management.” Lack skill set and life experiences required to effectively manage people.

    Advice to Management

    Too much middle management, poor leadership skills. Good sales people don’t necessarily make good managers, in fact most of the time they don’t. One could only ascertain upper management does not have their finger on the pulse of the workforce or else they don’t care.
