Great pay but very judgmental without showing evidence
Status: Previously employed
It was a hardcore training, but high pay, where a ridiculous amount of information was crammed into one week. I still achieved a 96% on the final and no I didn't have enough time in the week to get all the work done. I was laid off after two weeks because they said I didn't complete all the training course work but they didn't give me time to complete them. Then told me I was unprofessional with a customer but wouldn't show me a call where I was unprofessional. That's because I wasn't. They run in clicks and either like you or don't. I do also feel their items on their website are over priced.
Pros
The pay, and working remotely
Cons
Judgemental and poor process of showing accountability

Good Experience
Status: Previously employed
I learned a lot of new techniques with the design programs that we used. Everyone working there was very nice. Once you have learned everything and know how everything works it can get boring sometimes.

Great Pay and Benefits/Bad Work Environment
Status: Previously employed
before the pandemic..this company had serious toxic social economics. The company had a shift in management personnel at the Oakland Office (customer service and Design HQ)..essentially losing key players in the facilitating of people and their substitutes were far from adequate. Lots of human resource failures....lots! They cycled through the HR staff alot. They had ridiculous attendance policies that would never solidify..the management was always shifting them around to make its staff fearful.It became a punitive practice. There was clear favoritism and some discrimination. There was a severe lack of professionalism on the Customer Service department. They expected their seasonal q4 recruits to learn processes and systems in 2 weeks that take at the minimum a month to learn. Their training methods were understaffed and never efficient. However this was awhile ago so it could have changed.
Pros
pay snacks benefits
Cons
herniated

Inclusive Fun Environment
Status: Employed
Really inclusive company. Plenty of people to use as resources. Give plenty of breaks, two 15 minutes and an hour lunch which is great. Overall good company, not sure how much job mobility there is.

Perfect job to gain experience
Status: Employed
Good company to work for. I think if you have gaps in your resume or need experience this is great. Flexible schedule, and training takes 3 weeks, they take the time to make sure you are prepared and actually learn. Good culture here. This is the job you wish was permanent. I love working from home and the pay is good considering it is a remote job.
Pros
Remote, Decent Pay
Cons
Seasonal, No Benefits

Young workplace
Status: Previously employed
Young workplace. The expectation was that if they provided free lunch on Wednesday and beer in the fridge, that you would work way past 5pm. They did not pay enough to support a family, maybe a single person with roommates. Having kids is a negative and issues attached to being a mother can cost you your job. A real "Bro" culture.
Pros
Free lunch, beer, ping pong
Cons
low pay, rude upper management, bad culture

Overall Terrible Work Environment
Status: Previously employed
The job seems fun at first because it is work from home and the trainers are all nice people. As soon as you hit the floor, everyone treats you like a 3 year old that needs to be micromanaged all the time. You are being talked down to on a daily basis like you are nothing just because you work customer service. You will also be scheduled to hours that you did not even know were possible until the day before. Your employee discount is less than what they already offer on the website. Not to mention their products are incredibly overpriced and your order will most likely be damaged, lost, or delayed. Don't waste your time.
Pros
Work from home
Cons
Everything else
