Featured Review

Former Employee - Technical Account Manager

I worked at POPSUGAR full-time for more than a year

Pros

Really good team, fun environment, great location

Cons

There was always a fear of a takeover

Current Employee - Sales

I have been working at The RealReal full-time for more than a year

Pros

My coworkers are amazing! Everyone's really struggling right now so we do what we can to see each other succeed. I've also learned a lot about the fashion industry.

Cons

- Quotas are set unrealistically high so about half or more of the team doesn't earn commission - Our base pay is low for the industry - We're expected to be available 12 hours a day, 6 days a... week - There is no room for growth. Added responsibilities or a senior role doesn't exist - The few people who are successful live near a major city and physically pick-up the consignments themselves - In general, upper management seems to be applying more pressure during the COVID-era but in the wrong way so it's burning out the team
