I worked for Blue for almost two years and completely understood what was expected of me. If your numbers were really low you were not doing what you should have been doing.

The same thing happened to me. When hired, some papers were handed to me with the sales goals in bold print, but I did not see that until I had already worked a day and felt very confused and betrayed. It was a waste of my time and theirs that the manager could not relay that info in person. Later played "dumb" about their goals, which only made me more angry!

@Christina - Not necessarily. When I was first hired on, I had some very very poor training, and expectations were not made clear. I knew I had to make sales, but was not given the tools to do so. It wasn't until a year later I had a new manager that showed me how to do it right.

I couldn't agree more with your statements!!

I agree with you, this is a flexible job, and great for someone who has other work or school during the week.

What are some of the other companies, which pay their demonstrators more money? I have met one from Authority and I was told they have no quota to meet. They just walk around and talk to anyone interested in their product. No cold approaches as with Blue. It can be uncomfortable shopping and having a stranger approach, when all you want to do is shop in peace! I know a couple people who have done this job, so I appreciate your stating the pros and cons, as I have entertained thoughts of applying for this company. Although, more money is always a good thing.

BB employees rec a discount monthly, and the u.s rebate once a month is higher than Canadians, so that is balony as far as not receiving anything from the company. Also there are training sessions and paid for as well as surprises!
