All of the con’s of this business can be summarized in a google search of the word “devilcorp”...don’t be fooled by the name change. Summit Retail Solutions operates as an offshoot of a long standing business that’s gone by many, many, names. Nulife/cydcor/dsmax/ innovage/smart circle ect. You’ll see all of the “legends” of Summit Retail Solutions in this search and the sordid history of this business. The cons of this business are also surmised in a fantastic book “Ringing the Bell: My Life in the Biz”. Company hero Tom Spiro even makes a cameo in the book. Reading this book will predict your bleak future as a “leader” in the business. It may as well of being an autobiography when I read it. The company’s favorite people are those they brand as “leaders” in their “management training program”. Ideally these are people “poor, desperate, and helpless” (PHD candidates) that will stop at nothing to “build their situation”.Important Summit Retail Solutions vocabulary: “Manage your ledger”- while encouraging you to not claim all the hours you work would be a legal nightmare for HR this is code for just that... so you don’t have a negative ledger “Leader”- someone naive or ambitious enough (ideally both) to pay to train people, interview new fodder for the machine uncompensated, and work on their days off to build their “situation”“Situation”- Summit Retail Solutions shys away from the word “career” because they know they have none to offer. You build your “situation” which is so fickle DEMOTIONS can happen on your anniversary with the company. Do not pursue management unless you get paid more DIRECTLY for the effort you put in. This means training (you pay to train people), new product launches, interviewing, or keeping up with compliance on your days off. Do not live for deferred reward. The North remembers, Summit Retail Solutions does not. The “real” money may well be in management. The table was set long before the company thought about you.
They suck. Period. Not caring about their employees or their customers. RUN. Run very fast. Do not fall for the crap in their over the top spill. I did and have learned to regret it. Horrible company.
I have been working with this company for over a year trying to get my ring repaired that they damaged at one of their presentations in Cary NC. They applied a silver cleaner on my Tanzanite Stone and damaged it. At first they were going to take care of the damage and then they wouldn't. This company all about a dollar and could care less about the consumer.
Nice things,I like that I can get dollar cards,a bit pricey and wish the store owner was a bit more pleasant.He is mostly rude,but maybe he just has many bad days and I catch them every time.Hmm
