Now that the call center manager is gone
Marketing Associate (Former Employee), Hauppauge, NYMay 6, 2012
All Directbuy are franchisee companies so everyone makes their rules. Since the economy has been bad in NY people arent really interested in buying a membership plan, and the managers are blind to that.

Telemarketer (Current Employee), Mountain View, CAMay 4, 2012
Pros: working with good people.
Cons: constant negativity.
It is a good work environment, nice guests and coworkers.Where I work in the call center, we generate calls and get watched upon. Nonetheless, it is still a good work environment when we all do good at the job.

Depending on franchise this is a good family oriented environment.
Sales & Marketing Manager (Former Employee), Bridgeville, Cranberry, Monroeville, PANovember 22, 2011
Pros: family oriented environment, inside sales, discounted membership
Cons: not a recession friendly product.
This is a decent place to work if you are in an affluent market with an exploding population. The primary product this company sells is a steep consumer club membership and access to consumer goods manufacturers at or below cost pricing. Unfortunately, unless you are in the market for tens of thousands of dollars worth of purchases, you will not likely – more... recuperate your investment. That being said, ethical centers adhere to the corporate guidelines and prohibit fabrication of savings for the sake of selling this membership. As you can imagine, some centers allow and even encourage their sales people to distort facts and exaggerate savings in order to close the deal. As a result, many centers have closed and even more have been turned over to the corporation. If you happen to be in the right market and work for the right owner you can enjoy a lucrative opportunity and a good work environment. If you don't... well, you wont. I had the opportunity to experience both. In the present economy I would discourage anyone anyone from working for this corporation if they are looking for stability and long term employment. – less
