Company Culture

It's a pyramid scheme. Plain and simple. There was a reason why there was a turnover of ~99%.
If you spoke out, you weren't "dedicated" enough, and anyone that quit was called "stupid for giving up this opportunity"

Support from management

A ton of obligations to do off the clock. If brought up, we were told we aren't an "entrepreneuric enployee" to be willing to do all of this. It was considered "going above and beyond," and yet it was expected

Teamwork

Very open and direct, but we were obligated to hang out with at least coworkers after work each week

Freedom to work independently

You get paid based on the amount you sold (even if they said it wasn't sales), and you couldn't pick what you sold. Some times I was given easy products, other times it was skin care (I'm a young guy that doesn't have the best skin)

Internal Communication

While we are obligated to talk with our superviser after every day off the clock, communication is terrible. Supervisers lie every day straight to your face, and when you call them out, you're told you aren't dedicated enough

Gender Equality

They did screw everyone equally over out of time which also correlates to money

Attitude towards older colleagues

No one over 30 was hired

Career Development

It was a pyramid scheme. There's no room to move up

Overall compensation for your work

You get paid either minimum wage or a percentage of your sales. There are no benifits either

Office / Work Environment

You're expected to do some kind of work 7 days a week on or off the clock with some days ranging from early in the morning to late at night. For your lunch break, you're told only to take 10 minutes (which is illegal)

Environmental Friendliness

Everyone that doesn't want to work there is a "hater" and is "stupid"

Work-Life Balance

They'll be willing to sit down and help plan out your day. After doing this for me, they acted completely normal when their conclusion was that I only get 120 minutes for free time (usually to get things done around my apartment) from 9pm to 11pm

Company Image

They definitely knew ways tot protect their image. Anything that occurred could not be seen negatively. Oh, you're sick? You still need to come in and work your 17 our day. Even when they announced they were closing, they explained it as there was more opportunity up north, so they would be closing the company and moving back there

Job Security

You speak out, and you're not welcome

Handicapped Accessibility

There were ramps and we were told to park away from the building to allow older people in other offices to park closer

Workplace Safety

We really didn't have an safety training even when lifting heavy boxes.

Challenging Work

Oh yeah, you're told that you'll be able to sell a lot.... And then you're given a product no one wants and are told to play dress up

Inclusive / Diverse

While they did hire a variety of backgrounds, the only people they retained were young, white people. No one that was hired was over 30 (and we went through a LOT of employees).

Suggestions for improvement

  • Stay closed and figure out a way to bring down Smart Circle, the parent company

What I like about the company

It's now closed

What I dislike about the company

Everything. It's a scam
