Sales Executive (Former Employee) – Richmond upon Thames, Greater London – 5 January 2019
Gumtree is a great place for fresh graduates to cut their teeth in sales for a year maximum, aside from that it is a waste of time. It is a demanding culture with an aggressive and unhappy customer base for a variety of reasons in every department. Senior management refuse to acknowledge this and blame the salespeople, not rewarding them and paying their own pocket. They pretend to care about the culture with aimless box ticking exercises to prove to the eBay big wigs they are trying to make it better, but in reality do nothing. Unrealistic targets and a demeaning gap between the treatment of the agency staff (majority of the salespeople) and those employed directly by eBay
Marketing Manager, Managed Day to Day (Former Employee) – Saint Petersburg, FL – 28 April 2014
a great place to work dealing with a wide variety of customers in a great environment. Learned a lot of info about the organic food industry. Company management believes in the motto I'm not to good to do this.
