Quality Steaks
Sales Consultant (Current Employee), Schaumburg, ILJanuary 18, 2014
Pros: excellent food
Cons: variety
During the course of the day at Omaha Steaks, I usually do a variety of tasks. Anything from stocking the shelves, to up selling at the cash register. I would highly recommend anyone looking for excellent, quality steaks to either stop into your local Omaha Steaks shop, or order online.

I love my job!
Customer Care Specialist (Current Employee), Omaha, NEDecember 10, 2013
Pros: overtime, employee discount.
Cons: flexibility, compensation.
It is a rewarding job working at Omaha Steaks. I love making people happy, and thats pretty much the job description. 100% satisfaction guaranteed. The customer must be thrilled by the end of the phone call. And it feels good when people go from flustered, confused, or upset. To happy, laughing, cheerful people.

Outbound Sales (Former Employee), Omaha, NENovember 2, 2013
In outbound sales you could pretty much come and go as you please. Just get your hours in, work when you're productive, leave when you weren't.

Small conservative company with not much room for advancement
Manager (Former Employee), North CarolinaApril 9, 2013
Pros: quiet time, part time benefits
Cons: high pressure sales, lack of feedback loop, 24/7 on call, culture, moral center is gray
A majority of available careers are sales jobs in the inbound/outbound call centers or retail stores. I will touch on the retail stores.

In the retail stores there is constant pressure to up sell products. The training and coaching is geared towards high pressure sales techniques, and 'white lying' is encouraged to sell the product (most sales associates – more... aren't meat experts, the product is not graded or labeled with popular convention, product experience is not genuine, etc). It wasn't for me; for the right person it is a living wage, if they don't mind trying to up sell senior citizens with 'creative' methods.

Compensation is a bit low for management based on the amount of pressure and long hours, bonuses are pretty lousy, and incentive programs lack any ability to motivate. Benefits are fair for a retail position. Part time employees are paid about average when you factor in incentives. Part time employees are eligible for benefits and bonuses, though the option is expensive.

Culture is that of a small company. There is no working feedback loop for employees. Cronyism is evident yet doesn't provide many benefits since there is a lack of advancement opportunities. Management gives free reign in each individual store yet micro manages from afar. There tends to be too much focus on small issues with little concern for long term vision (think nit picky and small minded).

Job security is typical of retail. Sales jobs tend to have high turnover and that feeling of constantly being on the edge of employment was constant.

Work life balance is rough. You are on call 24/7 and can expect to work well over 40 hours a week.

The WORST part of the company is how much they push their employees to get customer information to spam them; you will hear it from customers, who sometimes snap with all the pushiness...
Ironically, you as an employee will all of a sudden start getting spam in the mail and over the phone from Omaha based companies (First National Bank of Omaha for example, who confirmed I was receiving their mail because of my association with Omaha Steaks).

The most enjoyable part of the job is some of the solitary you can expect during the day. It is a great opportunity to do some homework or reflect on life while you clean up the store.

To conclude, other than providing some income for a year or so, I did not gain anything of value from my employment at Omaha Steaks. I did learn a few things about meat, but nothing that has benefited my career since. It was just a job... if I had a choice I would probably choose a different company. But if you need income, and you don't have many options, Omaha Steaks probably beats out McDonald's. – less

Cons: moral sewer.
Management plays favorites like crazy! They like to be your friend, but enjoy those who are "very friendly." The whole place has more hook ups than be believed. You can't even tri too move up in this place. Right now too me pay is good Butt i need a more professional place to work

Excellent Management
Outbound Sales of Gourmet food (Former Employee), 10909 John Gault Blvd Omaha, NEMarch 20, 2013
Pros: job started at 10 dollars an hour, liberal break schedule (40 minutes in a 8 hour day), enjoyable people to work with.
Cons: after 12 weeks of employment pay rate goes to 7.50 per hour plus like a .04% commison, that is about the only negative about the job.
My typical work day consisted on receiving outbound calls from an automatic dialer. Learned to overcome objections and using transitions in sales presentations.

The management is top notch. I have high praise for their human relationship stills, and competency in their job functions.

Co-workers typically are very polite and friendly.

Hardest part – more... of the job was accomplishing the average sale. You call 10 people to actually contact 1. And if out of 10 contacts you make 1 sale you are really doing well. – less

Productive, fun workplace with much to do!
Sales Representative (Current Employee), Denver, COJanuary 17, 2013
Pros: flexible work schedule.
Cons: company only hires part time.
My day generally starts with going over my tickets and analyzing my sales from the day before. My manager and I discuss different sales techniques so I can reach my monthly goals. My co-workers always work as a team and are enjoyable making the atmosphere relaxed. The hardest part of the job is knowing when to go in for the hard sell. The most enjoyable – more... part of the job is realizing your success at the end of a shift. – less
