I worked at Plum District as a contractor for less than a year

Pros

lots of spiffs and contests to earn cash, gift cards.
Good regional training sessions and opportunity to meet peers in area

Cons

couldn't predict when deals would run - hard to tell client when it'll run when your Regional Manager has authority to change it for any reason. Better deals may bump your deal - even into another month. Hard to predict pay that way.

    I have been working at Plum District full-time

    Pros

    As a sales rep, you gain experience in all aspects of the sales cycle and territory management:
    - prospecting
    - cold calling
    - business & market plan development
    - territory development
    - marketing events
    - working with business owners to craft a daily deal that works for their ROI
    - telecommuting
    - CRM
    It was exciting to be part of something new and growing.

    Cons

    It felt more like an internship than a real position as a full-time sales rep. There was little to no support for sales reps, and constant changing of the company mission. It was difficult to adhere to corporate strategies, as they were ever-changing. There was also minimal training, so unless you are a self-starter and motivator, you have no chance of succeeding or making money.

    I have been working at Plum District part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Flexibility of schedule, low pressure sales, ability to work from home, offers moms a good work/life balance while using skillset.

    Cons

    Decrease in commission structure, you are required to not only sell and close a deal but then you are only paid if your offer sells in your area which does not always happen.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maintain clear and consistent rules and regulations in all areas.
