    Poor management, they change the rules every few months, makes you take pixs to prove you are in a store expense reimbursement minimal so the end up nickel & dimeing you to death and the pay is minimal wag once you break it down to the hours you put in. Not worth your time

    Advice to Management

    Treat your people like human beings if you don't trust them then what are YOU hiding

    Pros

    I thought it would be a great co because the product is cute and sells itself. Every kid wants these

    Cons

    Everything else. Management is terrible. Bullying threatening and rude to their employees. Make their reps take pics of every place they go to prove they are working. The co trusts no one. If offered a job, do yourself a favor and run the other way!

    Advice to Management

    I worked at Ty full-time

    Pros

    cute and well made product with great brand recognition, variety of accounts to sell to, product is priced well and sells well

    Cons

    no pay for training, very little time to work with customers or set appointments, structure is very difficult and stressful to call on 8 required accounts a day, very impatient trainer who is overworked and stressed and insulting, sarcastic and rude...taking pictures and stressing over getting to several accounts in a day takes precedence over doing a good job and establishing relationships with accounts...

    Advice to Management

    be patient and not rude and insulting of new sales people learning your system, be open minded to new ideas and different ways of approaching an account or a situation, look at all of the talented managers and sales people that have left...and continue to leave your organization...several employees have left due to micro managing and constant monitoring of sales people.

    I worked at Ty full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Product recognition, Child friendly, Easily recognized. Quality of product that stands behind the name TY. Child safety tests adhered to. New product introduction biannually.

    Cons

    Poorly managed. Communications with corporate office and sales force weak. Owner micromanages at all hours of the night. Owner and management was not interested in sales growth or shipping, The most important part of management was to see pictures of displays and what time pictures came in. The management team never wanted sales managers to do other required work just take pictures and place displays.

    Advice to Management

    Restructure and get Ty Warner away from Micromanaging. Let the sales force and corporate office run the company. I increased sales and shipping more than 28% in 9 months and they let me go because my server wasn't sending in my pictures in on their network. This company paid on commission only. If you don't ship goods you don't get paid. I was never paid the 20% on any new accounts. Why would a sales person take a risk on themselves to be paid on straight commission if they didn't plan on working. Obviously the owner wasn't as ethical or honest in his past sales to have such a distrust of his whole sales team

    Pros

    Somewhat flexible schedule, but that was always subject to change.

    Cons

    Horribly unorganized company. You never knew what to expect day to day. What was implied to you in your contract could change at the drop of a hat, without any notice. Never met my boss and he would talk over you and not listen to your concerns. Reimbursement for mileage is extremely low. Straight commission. Territories were always changing, and when questioned about it, management could never provide an adequate answer.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to speak to your employees politely. Answer questions. Motivate them and be positive.
