Fun place to work, difficult sales to make
Language Consultant (Former Employee) – Brentwood, MO – 16 February 2014
Rosetta Stone is a fun product, with a better than average sales pitch and very good moral and educational support for their employees. For retail commission sales the pay was higher than average in my area, but the sales goals can be very hard to make. The product, while fun and actually effective, is expensive and quite niche. As with all sales jobs, networking and marketing never really end, but off the clock work isn't required of their sales reps. The best part of the job is getting to use the software, and the employee discount is quite good but doesn't kick in until you have been there for 6 months. The worst part of the job is trying to use their ridiculous, redundant spreadsheets to record your sales and interactions.
Also, they discourage hawking, which is a great thing to see in retail sales and kiosks.
