    I have been working at The Dallas Standard full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I was skeptical coming into the business coming from a different field into something brand new. Now that I've been here for a year I can really see the impact this business has made on me professionally and personally. During my time at the Dallas standard I've been able to gain; - interviewing experience 1st 2nd and 3rds - conduct office meetings - personally mentor people's growth and development - traveled...

    Cons

    Not everyone is able to put their actions behind their words therefore they go to the Internet to complain about things you don't understand

    Advice to Management

    Keep going! Keep challenging!

    I worked at The Dallas Standard

    Pros

    You will get hired. They exopodite the process and make it very easy and quick to get hired. That's pretty much the end of the list.

    Cons

    They lie to you during the first stages of the interview process. It's nothing like they say. You are going to be making minimum wage or just above it as long as you are in the entry level position which they tell you is a couple months but most the people I talked to had been there a more then 6 months and were still in the entry level position. I personally don't like people trying to sell pillows or creams bugging...

    Advice to Management

    Be honest during the initial interviews so you don't waste people's time. No one is going to be making 70k by the end of their first year.

    Pros

    Nice office setting. That is literally the end of the list.

    Cons

    They are going to make you feel special, like you can achieve anything you want as long as you give up everything. You will give up all your time to be a sales person and to move boxes until 10 pm every other Sunday. And forget about taking a day off randomly. When you hear, "but is that what a manager would do?" RUN. They only talk about management when they don't have enough people to put on the schedule. They...

    I have been working at The Dallas Standard full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The growth I have seen in myself since working at The Dallas Standard is expotenially positive. The best part of this job is the not just the new skill sets I have developed but also improvements to my biggest inner weaknesses. When I first came on board with the company I loved the idea of a fast pace environment where I was able to move up quickly in the business. However it takes me a moment to get acclimated to a...

    I had to learn how to time manage better but that is a skill I learned because of this company and I am grateful for it.

    Advice to Management

    If you are reading this, please continue to invest in the people of this business above everything else, it is such a rare quality in a company and it is one of the reasons I love coming to work.

    I have been working at The Dallas Standard full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I have been with the team here for just under two months and the growth I've seen in myself professionally, as well as others in the office, is amazing. The managers and crew care so much about our development and are always there to lend a hand and answer questions. I love how open they are about all the potential negatives and obstacles we're going to face, but that they also provide solutions to those problems. I've...

    Cons

    It starts from the ground up, which they're open about from day one, but obviously takes some getting used to. Honestly when I first applied I was worried by some of the reviews on here, but i don't know if those people are just horrible listeners. I've never felt misled. They're upfront about the venues we work in, our scheduling, and they're great about listening to my personal needs.

    Advice to Management

    I love the interactive meetings and office atmosphere.

    I worked at The Dallas Standard full-time

    Pros

    My lead was the best part of the company... Without her I never would have signed on.

    Cons

    The daily "pep rally" meetings. Standing in a circle clapping does nothing for me. And having to attend this MANDATORY meeting everyday was awful. It took me more time to drive there than the actual meeting lasted. Waste of gas money. They also try to tear you down in order to motivate you. Ridiculous They never told me I'd be selling in a Sams store for 8hrs a day.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure the position is tailored to each individual. And that the meetings are productive for each individual.

    Pros

    They sell in big box stores and they are upfront about that.

    Cons

    It's not marketing its just a sales job. Pyramid selling isn't technically illegal in Texas and if you play the game you might actually make some money. Don't fall for it, enter at your own risk. They let anyone work there so beware. Don't use or buy the products who knows where they come from.

    I have been working at The Dallas Standard full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    People are great. I've learned so much about myself professionally as well as personally. They've guided me, trained me, and really helped me achieve both my short term goals and on track to achieve my long term goals. Fun, high energy work environment. People are always there to lend a helping hand.

    Cons

    Must have drive, self discipline, and be able to commit to the opportunity. Hard work pays off. Sometimes long hours.

      I have been working at The Dallas Standard

      Pros

      It seems fine on paper and in the interview, but once you are hired then you figure out you have to stand in Costco!

      Cons

      This company/job is such a scam! It's false advertising all the way. You will literally stand in Costco and sell cheap products. They are always looking for new people to hire because of the constant turnover rate!!

      Pros

      You gain so much experience in such a short time. Everyone is there to help. Not a dog-eat-dog world like many other businesses.

      Cons

      Have to have a personal drive and goals. It gets a little repetitive.
