-The manager is very talented and passionate at what she does. -Everyone in the office is energetic, highly motivated, and eager to help at anytime. -The morning meetings are impactful and usually motivating.
-Sales and marketing at its lowest. You work at a Sam's Club, set up a kiosk, and push items from unknown brands. You sell items such as cosmetics, bedding, hair irons, icy-hot, and even more random stuff. -The techniques used aren't professional, they're cheesy like what you see on infomercials or QVC. -You will be broke working this job. Pay is $8 per hour plus commission. So in the end that still won't amount to much selling the items mentioned above. So those who hustle the hardest and sell the most make a below median wage and everyone else makes at or below minimum wage. -Scheduling is all over the place. You'll work every weekend, nights, days, entire day through evenings, and have random days off during the week. -Even though the manager is great at what she does, at times she is unorganized and sporadic. -The office is full of micro-managers. They expect phone calls everyday after your shifts, early morning meetings, meetings at night, weekends and off days. -In all honesty, the business is set up like a pyramid scheme. The morning meetings are full of motivational speeches and promises of financial prosperity. But the only one who makes any real money is the manager.11

Positive atmosphere, growth, great training, opportunity to travel, build the best business relationships, Pay,
Could be a little overwhelming at first with the 1:1 time but I quickly realized it was to help me catch on to their business plan faster.2

It kinda sucks but in the end I guess it is a positive – but you are forced interact with people that don't care at all because you are selling them products from a table inside of Sam's Club. If you get 'promoted' (no pay raise) to leader, you learn about managing inventory, interviewing people, and leading a team. So overall, you gain some good experience from it. The boss is really cool too.
They glorify this job during the interview process and basically inform you that you can become a young, rich CEO with all of the freedom in the world in a year or two (if it sounds too good to be true, well...) The say PR assistant or Marketing assistant to lure in college student/grads, but in reality you just waste a ton of gas dragging inventory to Sam's club, and then spend two weeks on that rotation trying to sell products from a table you set up after store hours. If you're looking for a job description, here: 1.) Hour long morning meetings every weekday (weekends once you get to Leader) 2.) Drive to one of the many Sam's Clubs in the area.. sometimes an hour+ away 3.) Spend anywhere from 5-7 hours standing in Sam's Club, going up to anyone and everyone saying "Hey check this out" then blatantly turning away in hope's that they follow you to the booth. Shoppers get so annoyed with you and you feel like a total bozo, standing there in your dress clothes selling heating pads to some old lady. The jobs sucks. BUT it sucks so bad that it makes your next job seem awesome. It is good experience but you'll wake up every day dreading work. The employee turnover rate is seriously unreal. A entire new office of people each month.11

Great hands on training that is tailored to specific and/or different learning curves.The company has a strong team of talented and hard-working professionals that are motivated by the growth and expansion of the company. General understanding and application of the skill sets learned are shown in a respectable/above average pay. Over all, this company is professional and elite.
Their process filters out slackers and non-productive/ineffective individuals, which helps maintain a creative and productive work environment.3
