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

    Pros

    Management loves motivated employees who are extremely ambitious. So, if you want to turn a "Weekend" job into a more traditional 5 or 6 day a week job - you can.

    Cons

    The product is good but it is the kind of product that can be easily overlooked and/or disregarded. Those who really make money with this company are those who are willing to hustle.

    Advice to Management

    Decentralize your marketing approach and give more marketing power to your Regional Managers.

    I worked at Zipfizz part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Meet great people, product sells easily. Good product. Easy tangible sell. Best part is the members. It's a weekend job, so if one works hard you maybe can make a good paycheck. I was forced to do a 20 word minimum.

    Cons

    Well for starters, I was going to be offered and trained for a district manager position. I'm a rep. All those promises never delivered. I put my notice in. I got shorted on a paycheck that I made high commission. So, the more boxes you sell the less you make. So where is the incentive. This job is for older retirees who really don't care they just want a job and not a career. Stay away from this and find a job that applauds your efforts not degrades. I have been a long term employees as well, not a newbie. Online sales are playing a bigger role, whereas Sams and Costco are losing. Member complaints as well.

    Advice to Management

    You have no communications on your frontlines which are your reps. Communicate. Don't just worry about your bonuses. Change commission structure to where it's worthwhile to stay. Management is not professional, not caring. Do what you say you will do. Some management needs to be replaced, hands down.

    Pros

    Decent Part-time money
    Great product
    Enjoyable work

    Cons

    Virtually zero support from corporate
    Non-corporate, off-site employees treated as more-or-less disposable / interchangable

    Advice to Management

    - Invest in educating / supporting demonstrators to greater degree
    - Recognize the importance of non-corporate employees
    - Make demonstrators feel like they part of the organization rather than outsiders

    "Great Company"

    I have been working at Zipfizz part-time

    Pros

    Responsive and concerned management. Regional Vice President and District Manager both lead by example; working harder than anyone while encouraging success for their underlings. Good commission structure. Though only part-time, can make a decent wage if one is a motivated salesperson. If one is promoted to full-time, the benefits are amazing.

    Cons

    Last minute schedule changes and sometimes expected to travel long distances, leading to long work days. It takes years to be employed full-time with the company. Permitted to work only a maximum of 29 hours per week.

    Advice to Management

    Please ascertain that production keeps up with sales.

    Pros

    Enjoyable job if you enjoy meeting new people and sharing product knowledge; base hourly rate & paid commissions, after selling the required number.

    Cons

    Demand that you pay for all supplies required to sell their product out of your money, refuse to take responsibility and provide prepaid debit card or make arrangements with the store.
    unprofessional management.

    Advice to Management

    Pay for your own supplies and stop using your employees money to build your business. Increase the emotional maturity of people in management

    Pros

    great management, enjoyable job at costco and walmart.

    Cons

    want you to meet sales quota, hire really fast, not sure if its a good or bad thing. They look to see if you will meet the quota they want

    Advice to Management

    Hire and keep employees, work around schedule, and be clear about availability up front
