SALES ADVISOR (Former Employee) – Fairfax, VA – January 15, 2019
Easy to come in, deliver a small speech to customers to get them to buy a product, and then go home. Good beginner job for those who are needing first jobs or make some money on the side. I personally worked as a CDS representative in Costco and it was a good time.
Demonstrator (Former Employee) – Fort Wayne, IN – January 16, 2019
CDS was a perfect place to work to interact with the public. The part time schedule was a perfect fit. They offer no insurance or paid vacation or sick pay but these are things that I didn't have to worry about. So the job was a good fit for me.
regular breaks and lunch. Paid a good wage per hour and bonuses
SALES ADVISOR (Former Employee) – Westlake Village, CA – January 12, 2019
I learned how to talk infront of people, somthing I was not very open to during high school. The hours are very flexible, the staff are very friendly and open minded, and the Event Manager is open for sugestions. Overall, had a blast and I would highly recommen this job to anyone looking for a place to start. However, what it makes in friendly enviornment, is lacks in organization.
Sales Advisor (part time) (Current Employee) – Timnath, CO – January 9, 2019
I work at least two days a week. A new company took over this business and the rules have tightened. They added on many new employees and have cut the hours for the seasoned employees. The manager is bias and she cuts an employees' hours when they make a mistake. The manager is verbally abusive and we all have learned how to deal with it.
Management has to be changed to create a happy work environment.
Customer Service Demo's (Former Employee) – Gilbert, AZ – January 2, 2019
Inconsistent in scheduling. They would cancel your shift 1 hour prior to your scheduled shift. The rules could change daily. An example is the dress code, closed toed shoes , weren’t the same for everyone. The presentation of the product you were demonstrating.
You could trade shifts or days off. Of course it had to be approved

any one can do it and they will replace you if you are caught lacking, wether its your fault or not. you can sell a product as hard as you can but at the end of the day people are going to buy what they want and if you don't get lucky on what you demo that day prepare to get a lecture.
Sales Advisor (Former Employee) – Omaha, NE – December 22, 2018
I loved working for CDS. CDS gave me the freedom to learn new skills and apply them to my everyday sales tactics.i liked that I didn’t have a manager breathing down my neck and allowed me the freedom to sell the way I was comfortable doing. Everyday was a new sample so new selling points.
Delicious samples, learn new foods, flexible schedule
Sales Demonstrator (Current Employee) – United States – December 22, 2018
Although the mangers are friendly, it is deceptive, there is little respect for the hourly employees. For instance they neglect to inform you that the demonstration has been cancelled, until you arrive at work. No consideration or compensation for the time or money you spent to get to the job. Not even an apology for their mistake.
It's a good part time job, I was never fired but they never put me back on schedule for reasons unknown, I couldn't tell you why I was never put on schedule again since they still praise me as a good employee went I'm at the Costco warehouse.

Cook food or drinks (Current Employee) – San Francisco, CA – December 11, 2018
This jobs I would only recommend if you just need some side cash and for independent elderly. The only thing is you have to stand long period of time and be very energetic to catch the customers attentions.
