Sales Performance Manager (Current Employee) –  Fort Mill, SCJuly 19, 2018
Red Ventures has had a profound impact on my life in many positive ways; especially the people who became more than just co-workers, but rather friends with a deep connection. The opportunities to learn and succeed are plentiful, so long as the work ethic supports it. While the company is also growing from small/medium to large there are changes happening to staffing and policies that come with growing pains, but also more pros than cons. The CEO is a leader of many ideas and philosophies that are embodied in the company culture. There are few places in the world that offer the scale and impact that Red Ventures does. Whoever leaves their doors will have a better sense of purpose than when they entered.

Great place to learn
COPYWRITER (Current Employee) –  Fort Mill, SCJuly 18, 2018
Jobs can vary greatly within the company, but overall it's a great place to learn and grow. If you're coming straight out of school it's a really solid first job.

Very high stress sales inviroment
Sales Agent (Former Employee) –  Rock Hill, SCJuly 18, 2018
The name of the game is getting potential buyers through the credit application. Its the number one metric that agents are paid for. Coming from a sales background this was very new to me. It becomes easier, but the push for getting callers through credit is insane. Commission plans changed every month i was there. You'd go from making 1500 in commission to 250 the next month; without changing a single thing your doing.
Pros
The facility is amazing and lunch is cheap
Cons

Great culture, lacking in structure
Workforce Manager (Current Employee) –  Charlotte, NCJuly 17, 2018
I think the best word to sum up working at RedVentures is... "HECTIC"

The companies culture is awesome, but because of a lack of a defined structure, getting anything across the goal line is nigh impossible.

Web of lies

Poor work/life balance, decreasing compensation, hidden agendas and possibly the worst of all was the lack of consideration given to employees as far as career advancement and overall happiness.
Pros
Ocassional free lunch

Not made for long term employment

Good environment, bad everything else
SALES REPRESENTATIVE (Former Employee) –  Charlotte, NCJuly 9, 2018
Red Ventures gives you the illusion that that it is a fun place to work. The environment is fun, with ping pong tables and basketball hoops, but the actual work is extremely tedious and not very rewarding. They also say that they have flexible schedules but it is a complete lie. They let you choose your schedule and then a month later switch you to a different one and you have no say.

Sales Manager (Current Employee) –  Charlotte, NCJuly 3, 2018
RV has its ups and down. I love the culture there however it has been dying within the last year. They are slowing taking away the perks that used to be at RV, annual trip, schedule flexibility, free food, etc. The pay structure has surely went down while the sales expectations have increased.

Inside Sales Agent (Current Employee) –  Charlotte, NCJune 26, 2018
There's a lot of positivity in the workplace. It's definitely a mental challenge working on the phones, but when you have down time, there are a lot of options to help relief stress.

Great people, okay company...
Inside Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  Indian Land, SCJune 12, 2018
What I enjoyed most about working for RV was the people I worked with, including management. However, I didn't love some of the sales tactics we were encouraged to use to close sales there. I also wasn't a fan of how frequently and extensively the compensation plan changed... sometimes in ways that weren't good...

Really fun work environment and great pay
Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  Fort Mill, SCJune 11, 2018
I made great money working here and really enjoyed my work place. I really enjoyed getting paid for my hard work, the money is there to be made for sure. Only down side was the hours, when you start, unless your extremely lucky, you will work second shift with 1 weekend day off and 1 weekday off, and by second shift i mean work till midnight or even later..... so if you have a family you enjjoy spending time with then this is not the job for you, even tho the pay is almost worth it!
Pros
Fun work environment and great pay
Cons
no family time, working late hours for the first couple of years

Stay away
Consultant (Former Employee) –  Sandy Springs, GAJune 11, 2018
This place has gone downhill and the turnaround is ridiculously high. They have a training class of 20+ people starting every 2 weeks and many tenured reps are leaving. Stressful workplace, pay is not great and the overall direction is a failing one.
Pros
Free lunches from time to time and team organized outings
Cons
Everything else

cool atmosphere/draining position
Inside Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  Fort Mill, SCJune 10, 2018
the office has so many cool things to strike the eye and keep you entertained when you're on break or off work. but what you realize is that the job is so emotionally and mentally draining that you just want to rest on your break and clear your mind and when its almost time to leave you count down the seconds without even thinking of using the cool amenities after work. you just want to leave and never come back after a 10 hour day on the phones
Pros
cool environment
Cons
short breaks, mentally draining and high stress

Part Time
Sales Agent (Current Employee) –  Charlotte, NCJune 7, 2018
I work Part Time, its an awesome Job, They discontinued the part time program and have been making a lot of changes. I can't accurately review what it is like to work full time. It seems like too much in my opinion. Part Time is the perfect job and amount of time. The management is fun and the job is flexible.

Red Ventures is a great foundation for any sales career. Extensive and continual training through out your entire career at Red Ventures in any position. This is a highly (yet friendly) competitive environment.

would not reccommend
Inside Sales Rep (Current Employee) –  Fort Mill, SCMay 29, 2018
red ventured is not a place to work if you are looking for job stability. your job is dependent upon meeting sales goals in an non true, optimized sales environment. After 90 days of employment your job is on the line every month if certain goals are not met and depending on the business/call volume some goals are impossible to meet for that month. but this is not considered by management the turn over rate is at an all time high mainly bc of this reason.
Pros
benefits, possible commission
Cons
salary, call volume, management

Red Ventures gets a bad wrap but in some ways deserves it...
Sales Agent (Former Employee) –  Fort Mill, SCMay 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.
Pros
On site activities, benefits package (after 90 days).
Cons
Management, Treatment of the Sales Agents, constant phone calls and pressure to perform.

Don’t get too comfortable
Inside Sales Representative (Current Employee) –  Fort Mill, SCMay 18, 2018
Working here is a revolving door. Turnover rates are faster than I’ve ever seen. No matter how much potential for advancement is preached to you, it is not true. This place requires an arm, a leg, a kidney and two fingers from you with very little to give in return. Earning potential in the form of commission is there but you have to literally fight because the playing field is not even. I genuinely hate this place. If you have nothing else, it’s a decent option.
