Red Ventures gets a bad wrap but in some ways deserves it...
Sales Agent (Former Employee) – Fort Mill, SC – May 29, 2018
Red Ventures as a whole is a great company and provides a lot of benefits to it's brand new employees and employees who are established within the corporate landscape. The agents however are driven very very hard, to the point where I had seen several people cry, walk out, use foul language or just flat out quit.
The compensation and benefits package is great and Red Ventures gives you a great chance to succeed and make some fast money if you can get through the initial trading periods.
Scheduling is one of the worst parts of the job. Starting out you have one weekend day off and a day off during the middle of the week and it doesn't get any better. A year into the position, I had one weekend day off and one day off during the middle of the week. No advancement.
The managers of the agents (performance coaches, senior performance coaches) are simply pawns that get bossed around by superior managers which directly falls onto the agents by pushy, take no for an answer coaching sessions. In those sessions, it's the coaches way or the highway and if you walk out not doing exactly what you're told, you're given an instant disciplinary action strike which goes on your record for months. The managers also maintain a quota of disciplinary actions given out so you might not be doing badly at all and still receive one.
On site activities, benefits package (after 90 days).
Management, Treatment of the Sales Agents, constant phone calls and pressure to perform.
