Great co-workers but was sold a lemon
Design Consultant/Sales (Current Employee) – USA – August 6, 2018
The training, coworkers, and manager were great! Everyone was helpful and welcoming. It is a good job to gain experience. The clients are usually very understanding and easygoing. I wasn’t told about working every weekend until after I already accepted the job and was waiting for my schedule. I remember, I kept asking about my start date/ schedule and then finally after I already gave notice to my other job I was told, “Ok, so you will work some evenings and weekends, is that ok?” But once I received the schedule, I realized it’s every weekend, not “some”. And it’s because more people are out shopping in the weekends but it makes it difficult for employee’s life. I have noticed that a few of my coworkers are taking vacations so they are getting approved for weekends off. I did ok with sales my first few months, but when you don’t make it, the pay is awful. Which isn’t acceptable for a mother of two. Someone informed me that they never seen anyone go over 70,000 in sales a month. Oh yea, and it was only a one time occasion. Which is not what was told to me during the interview. The manager painted a very pretty picture, but it didn’t take long to realize it wasn’t real.
Every weekend and holiday; pay
