    I have been working at Vitamix full-time

    Pros

    Benefits package is better than the average company, but Vitamix is an Above Average Company. The value of our benefits outweighs the cost. At a recent eye doctor appointment my out-of-pocket for glasses and doctors appointment was less $150.00 and the staff at the eye doctors office confirmed that we have a great plan! Medical Benefits are great also.

    Cons

    Wish Lasik surgery was on plan, that would eliminate the need to glasses or contacts for some of us.

    Wish medical plan covered certain medical procedures that would reduce or eliminate the need for medications.

    I have been working at Vitamix full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Benefits, great co workers. A lot of fun events during the year which makes for a very cool work environment.

    Cons

    Micro management. Too many supervisors, directors etc always meeting to find new metrics and rules to measure results. Don't feel concerns are addressed.

    Advice to Management

    Trust your employees

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

    Pros

    Great pay, lucrative commission structure. Lots of flexibility (you can choose which shows you work). Basically an autonomous job, managers provide amazing support within their resources. I felt heard and supported. So many miscellaneous benefits to this job!! Paid weekly.

    Cons

    Long hours, you need to know time management. You are on your own, so if you don't like that you may want to think twice. I loved it. Don't pay for travel or lodging, but those costs do not mean you will loose money traveling to a show. Out fI town an average 18 days out of the month, the other days you have off.

    I have been working at Vitamix full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I've been selling this product many years. Customers love it which makes it easy to sell. A product that truly changes people's lives who use it.

    Cons

    Travel is sometimes difficult on family. Hours can be long because it's retail and stores we demonstrate in are open 10-12 hours a day.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. Listen to your employees and take care of them. The less turnover the better and if you take care of your own they will be loyal like family

    I have been working at Vitamix part-time

    Pros

    Such a great company to work for. I believe it its blender and how it can change your life towards a healthier one. The blender is so powerful and sales itself.

    Cons

    Supervisors & HR need to deal with the employees more and not just the employees that they care about. I decided to leave and lost interest in the company months before due to the favoritism an disconnect with upper management.

    Advice to Management

    Stop the favoritism! Favortism is huge with HR, Work Force Management and Supervisors. I truly doubt John Barnard would endorse that type of behavior.

    industry leader within its category in Food and Beverage. commercial and Food Service.
    great benefits package, and competitive salary package. Nice culture and company history.

    Cons

    not too many cons. except job security. I was hired with great longevity expectations, and unfortunately the company came into hard times rather quickly and unexpectedly and my position was dissolved in a corporate reorganization
