    I have been working at Dyson full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Full two day training is given down at the HQ, which is very beneficial. Lots of communication with other Dyson experts when working on the job and the best manager I have worked for.

    Cons

    Bonus scheme dependent on numerous different criteria. To be expected, but quite challenging to get. Extra work has to be done outside of working hours.

    Advice to Management

    Not many negatives to note. Keep doing what you are currently doing as I have never worked in such a motivated and well suited workforce. Due to the application process being quite lengthy you will find yourself working alongside other friendly, able individuals.

    I have been working at Dyson part-time

    Pros

    The only reason for the 2 stars is pay. It's good for a part time position but they do not give raises and have been consistently adding more responsibilities.

    Cons

    Everything else....anything that might be considered a plus of this position have been taken away through the last few years and the company greed has taken over. Good luck with trying to get a bonus, the goals are so over inflated there is little chance. In short don't be drawn in by the pay, it's really not worth the headache.

    Advice to Management

    No advice as it wouldn't be "heard"by anyone

    I have been working at Dyson part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Not commission based
    Sharing information with the public about Dyson Technology, if you like talking to people and are good at relationship selling this job is for you.
    Ability to make in a two days what you would make at many 5 day a week part time jobs
    401K with good match

    Cons

    Opportunity for advancement is limited, best mindset is to view this as a part time opportunity
    Bonus plan exists but rarely achieved, think of any bonuses received as perk
    Often very slow to provide supplies needed to be in compliance with dress code and theater set up

    Advice to Management

    Hire a coordinator to handle the needs of the demonstrators and get them the supplies they need in a timely manner. Allow Demonstrators to order their own supplies and then just have managers approve.

    I have been working at Dyson part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great Discount, its weekend work, not horrible for part time work

    Cons

    Expected to sell, but when you are put at a location with little or no inventory you are set up to fail

    Advice to Management

    Shorten Demo hours, 4 hours makes more sense if you want employees to stay focused.
    Train your Field Managers to have better people skills when it comes to dealing with sensitive issues, Manager in New Jersey is Horrible and many of the demonstrators are unhappy with him.

    Pros

    Relaxed work environment, very self-directed work. Lots of autonomy in the field, no micromanagment. Great work place for during school, and has lots different channels to potentially grow in.

    Cons

    Can't think of much for Dyson. Except Dyson Canada is fairly flat structure in terms of vertical movement. need to move to head office in England to vertically grow or go into other channels

    Advice to Management

    Great management here in Canada! Has a solid team of support, really don't have much things to say about the management other than keep up the good work. Dyson really live up to its name in terms of being a global company!
