Great job for anyone who enjoys living at the store
Sales Professional (Former Employee) – Indiana – February 20, 2016
Upper management does not care about your work/life balance. It was not uncommon to have them insist on you coming in to work overtime if you had not met your sales goals. They talk a lot about wanting to promote from within, but they seldom do so. The hardest part of the position was interaction with the district manager who would visit the store solely to find something she could deem wrong. Im sure there are great DM's in other markets, but this one was a monster. The hours are long and you need to be prepared to occasionally work an 8 or 10 hour day but never see a single customer. When this happens they will want you to use their call lists and call past customers to try and sell them over the phone. If business is slow, you become a glorified telemarketer. The training involves WEEKS of role playing before they allow you to start the job. You will be required to act out/pretend to sell products to your co-workers until they see fit. One of the most mentally taxing jobs I have ever had.
commissions were fair
