Sales Advisor
CRUTCHFIELD CORPORATION3.9
Charlottesville, VA
Job description
We are now offering a $500 HIRING BONUS!


Friendly. Quirky. Humorous. Compassionate. Ready to go the extra mile. That’s who we want to join our growing team of sales advisors. And that’s what you can expect from us, too. If you haven't heard of us, Crutchfield is a national internet retailer of consumer electronics. We’re family-owned and community-oriented, and have been for over 40 years.

As a Crutchfield Advisor, you'll connect with customers via phone, email, and live chat about the wide range of car & marine audio/video gear and gadgets that we sell. If you don't know everything about electronics, no worries – every new team of advisors gets three months of paid, hands-on training with an experienced instructor before working with customers on their own. What's important to us is that you're a great listener, a quick learner, and have an unflappable, honest rapport with people. If this sounds like your style and you're ready for a change, we definitely want to meet you.

Advisors work some evenings (until 8pm) and some weekends, and while this isn't a commission-based position, you'll be rewarded for the strength of your personal performance. Between our competitive base salary and available incentives, annual first year advisor income average is $48,000/year with an opportunity to earn significantly more. Training is anticipated to start on 9/7. We also offer a competitive benefits package, a comprehensive wellness program, tuition reimbursement, relaxed dress code, and discounts on the fun stuff we sell. You’re even allowed to bring your dog to work!

Additional COVID-19 considerations:

We're committed to keeping our employees and community safe — and taking good care of our customers. As a result, this will be a work-from-home position (including training) until further notice. Candidates must have the ability to obtain a suitable broadband connection with consistent min download speeds of 30 MB/s, upload speeds of 1.5MB/s, and latency below 150ms as well as the ability to hardwire to your modem/router.

Eventually, this position will be onsite at Crutchfield’s new, state-of-the-art contact center and campus located in Charlottesville. As a result, we’d prefer that you reside within 60 miles or so of that location, but you must reside in the Commonwealth of Virginia to be considered.

Want to know more about us? Check out our website, social media channels, or just ask around! We know a lot of employers make a lot of promises, but we think you'll find that working at Crutchfield is everything we say it is.

Crutchfield is an equal opportunities employer and we welcome applications from all suitably qualified persons regardless of their race, sex, disability, religion/belief, sexual orientation, or age

Company reviews
"Cool coworkers, Upper management is horrific"
Former EmployeeTechnical Support Specialist
I really enjoyed the training I got and most of the people that I met there, but as hard as people try to be friendly and have a good culture, morale is down and NOBODY IS BEING PAID ENOUGH! They expect the absolute best out of tech support all the time, underpay their overworked employees, and the entire company sways depending on Bill Crutchfield's mood. As soon as they organize and stop sucking up to him it might be a great place to work, aside from being a call center.

"Another body to fill a position "
Former EmployeeRetail Advisor
Their Retail stores are a revolving door, upper retail management hasn't changed and until it does thats the only way the door will stop moving, unless your the favorite they view you as replaceable and just another body in a seat. The micro management is UNBELIEVABLE here & Bonus’s and pay are not what they say they will be and other departments have higher bonuses for less work. Employees at the retail stores are not valued like they are at other company facilities & Management will be best friends with you one day and ready to fire you the next Employee retention at the retail stores are a issue and a concern that isn’t relatable to the value and views of the corporation and is being overlooked by administration and HQ...Maybe this will make them take a closer look.

"Overall the best call center environment / treats you like a person"
Current EmployeeSales Advisor
Crutchfield is a solid company but at the end of the day it is still a call center. They do treat each employee like a person and not just another body to fill a seat. The pay is much better than you will find at most call center jobs. The company itself does treat the employees well. Not that great of chances for advancement unfortunately.

Cons:

"Great place to work"
Former EmployeeWarehouse Worker
Management was amazing from top to bottom. They actually respect their employees and having worked at a few places in the past that couldn't care less about their staff let me tell you it makes a difference. The job isn't easy but they'll find a role that suits you. Most of the people who work there full time in the warehouse have been there for years because Crutchfield is a great place to work.
