Management very polite and understanding
Assisted Sales Representative (Former Employee), San Diego, CAFebruary 9, 2015
After I learned that the location of the initial position I applied for was not suitable, the recruiters, managers, and Human Resources all worked hard to find an available job location near me and get me on board in time to start work. Even after it didn't work out, they allowed me to remain in their system in case a new position opened up near me.

Market Manager (Former Employee), Irvine, CAJanuary 25, 2015
Pros: meeting new exciting people, different every day.
Cons: not knowing when work will end.
Working for BDS was exciting, always meeting new people, talking, selling, training, overall its great. Learned alot about many electronic devices, co workers where nice and helpful and always willing to assist. Hardest part of work was not knowing when the program will end and how long each task will last. The people where the most enjoying portion of the job.

Field Sales Representative and Trainer (Current Employee), Irvine, CADecember 6, 2014
Pros: paid training
Cons: seasonal position, on demand.
Seasonal position to support launch of "Internet of things" hub device. BDS is a first class organization which provided paid training via high quality online courses. I also participate in weekly management conference calls. The hiring process required a drug screen and a background check and they also require that I have car insurance.

Could be a really cool and great job but my management and communication from management was awful.
Market Development Manager (Former Employee), Columbus OhioOctober 1, 2014
I enjoyed the job itself but a lot of the time had to wing it because of poor communication from management. Lots of travel which was good because you weren't stuck behind a desk. Loved that I got to meet with new people everyday. They started putting way to much stress on sales when there weren't enough customers to even meet the amount of units they wanted sold.

Typical Retail Merchandising Brand Ambassador Job!!
Best Buy Toshiba Brand Rep (Former Employee), Altamonte Springs, FLSeptember 21, 2014
Pros: just the $12 an hour, that was it!!
Cons: unrealistic monthly sales goals and lack of support!
This job was bad, just because of the fact that Toshiba is losing its grip on the techinology market to bigger companys like Samsung, Apple and Sony. With this being said, this is why I never got any support from this company with promotion material for my assigned Best Buy store as well as the huge lack of managerial support too.

Good 3rd party that trys to take of there own
Motorola Rep (Current Employee), Irvine, CASeptember 5, 2014
Pros: training, communications, support
Cons: not really bds fault but not enough good contracts
I have been on many programs with BDS over the years starting on the merch team then to the dedicated Samsung team until that went away. BDS put me on what they call "Flex Force" which is for reps that have ability to do training and selling. That didn't last long maybe 6 weeks when HR called me asking me to join the Dell team. That lasted over a year and it went away and BDS immediately placed me on the Motorola team.
So BDS tries to take care of their own, but the way this industry has been the last 5 years or so that gets harder and harder and I have to watch out for myself

Always had great experience and I've been on two different programs with this company. The only downside is that when the program ends, so does your job but that is the nature of this industry.
