LiaS – November 9, 2012
I saw a position for this company and it was in my nearby mall. After reading this review and others, I wanted to check it out before applying. I was greeted nicely, offered some tea to try, and I asked about the little table that had a big sign "Now Hiring". I was told that they are "mostly done with that as it is for the holiday season" Mostly?? I am over 40, just by a little bit, and don't really look it, but I am obviously not 20. Too bad, as I had a few things I wanted to buy and the sales people did a terrible job of selling. Tried to sell me a bigger tin, but other than that I basically led the sales. I could have easily walked out with about $20 of tea and that is it, if I didn't lead them along. I spent $55. I am the classic bored housewife look for a little money from a fun part time job, and I could really sell a lot. Stupid Teavana- your loss. I don't even need benefits!

The pay has never been commission only. It is base plus commission. What you said is absolutely untrue.
