    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

    Easily the best job I've ever had (I'm only 24 though) high paying, super relaxed, hands on field work.

    Managers are the tops, comes with incentives AND bonuses- they will treat you so so well.

    Cons

    Pay cycle is weird, gotta drive 45 minutes to location, only work weekends

    Advice to Management

    Nothing- they have this on lock!!! Simply the best.

    Pros

    Great culture and management.
    Wonderful interview.
    Great technology and you learn a lot along the way.
    My boss in my district is very helpful.

    Cons

    You work on the weekends and you work alone.

    Advice to Management

    Come out and work with us sometime. Upper management should throw on a shirt and join the field sales team for a day to hear what some customers have to say.

    I worked at Dyson part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Excellent product training, regular tutorials for better product understanding and marketing, flexible schedule, good compensation and available benefits, additional demonstration shift opportunities, close proximity to work locations and the opportunity to demonstrate the best product on the market.

    Cons

    Limited opportunities for advancement due to the dedication and loyalty of the employees to the company, and the company to its employees. Physical demands of standing for extended periods can become problematic for those with physical limitations.

    Advice to Management

    My only advice to Dyson corporate would be to expand the demonstrator corps in major markets for the simplest of reasons, that when consumer merely look at price tags or pretty pictures and marketing hyperbole on product boxes, they don't get to know the Dyson difference.

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

    Pros

    Professional and Caring managers, Supportive and Encouraging, A company that really respects and appreciates it's employees and rewards them generously and gives them continued recognition for a job well done. I love my job and this company!

    Cons

    None, Other than I wish I could work more hours on a regular basis, my position is part-time. But, when special events or days come up we are always offered the opportunity to pick up more hours on an as needed basis. No complaints at all.
    Wish there were more offices near my home so that I could work full-time. Plenty of opportunity if you live in the Chicago area.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on doing what you do. You always are looking to do the best for your employees and Dyson. I would like to see an addition of a merit raise and yearly review if that is feasible for part time workers. Define ways that part-time employees can advance. Other than that you are the best! Thank you!

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

    Pros

    No boss breathing down your neck, good pay for a part time job, easy work, mileage reimbursement, set schedule,

    Cons

    Down time is boring, not organized with demo ppl (we are the step children), promised a raise after 90 days and that was a lie,

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to the demo ppl and trains them correctly. some ppl have been there for 5 months and are barely learning things they should've learned months ago.
