    I have been working at SGN Nutrition part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Nobody knows you are there. It is like dangling in the wind.

    Cons

    You are all alone. After the rah rah pep talk, they turn you loose to fail.

    Advice to Management

    Make goals achievable. Having to get 20 boxes sold in a slow store is impossible. The only day with any money potential is Saturday.

    I have been working at SGN Nutrition part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Can't think of any! Boss talks a lot of smack to sell the job. There is a conference call were everyone gets pepped up!!

    Cons

    Plan on buying a 4 ft table that you'll have to lug in and out of Costco along with a box of materials. Your hours and days that you work will be determined by Costco. Boss has to email Costco to get permission for you to be there. if you don't get your box of materials that you have to have in order to work in time you won't be able to go into work. High maintenance job for sore back standing on Costco's cement floor for six hours a day. this job is mainly a steppingstone job - work it until you can get to something better. Forget about upward mobility. This is it!!!

    I worked at SGN Nutrition part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    There are no pro remarks here for this company.

    Cons

    The lady who spoke to me on the phone sent me a video and I did jump way too quickly before I read the reviews.

    First they have a class action law suit for not paying commission/wages. I got a little nervous since I live alone and am an elderly lady. I also read the sucralose was a much higher level than she stated to me. I feel this was a little unprofessional on the person's part.

    Advice to Management

    Ok I got this great idea and you save money. Just pay the people a decent wage and 1% of the sale per box. That comes to .20 per box. When they reach 20 boxes, they have earned $4.00. The employee would feel much more aware of selling each box all hours they are working and have a happier life.

    Pros

    Company paid like clockwork. Provided good training & marketing materials. Good if you only want to work P/T & independently

    Cons

    Product was hard to sell due to artificial sweeteners, high price & other artificial ingredients. Working at COSTCO was horrible. They have no respect for demo workers. Low hourly pay. You only make commissions after selling 20+ boxes of product, which was difficult to do. Very boring job.

    Pros

    NONE AT ALL EXCEPT THE 2 hr paid at home training. Learned how to lie to people to get sales

    Cons

    Fired by email. AND THE PRODUCT SUCKS NASTY AND LIARS . Says no sugar in it but believe me it is. Says its all natural thats a lie. It is both natural and artifical

    Advice to Management

    Stop wasting time by putting people on to demo then taking them off schedule. Full of crap. Glad that i didn;t depend on this job for my spare income
