A Conversation with a Scentsy Sales Consultant

So you work with Scentsy?

 

SC : How did you know?

 

For starters, your wood paneled station wagon is filled with boxes labeled Scentsy candle warmers. Also I can smell about twenty distinct aromas wafting from the direction of your car.

 

SC : Guilty as charged.

 

So how did you make the decision to join Scentsy?

 

SC : I was looking for an opportunity where I could make my own hours and be my own boss. Joining Scentsy as a sales consultant seemed to fit that description.

 

Have you had a bad experience working for other people?

 

SC : Yes, I used to work for a company that will remain nameless. I had a supervisor that was always looking over my shoulder and always making me feel like I was trying to hide something or pull one over on the company. I honestly went into work each day trying to do my best and give value to the company so I did not appreciate being made to feel like that was not what I was doing.

 

Is that the best thing about your decision to join Scentsy?

 

SC : It is a great thing. But I also really believe in Scentsy’s products. There are so many different types of scents available. There are far too many for me to describe. But I can say without many exceptions that I love each and every one of them.

 

Do you find that most people who buy Scentsy products have an odor problem they are trying to contend with?

 

SC : Some of them definitely do. But some of them just want to be in the company of a pleasant scent and not necessarily to cover up a bad one.

 

In that sense I suppose you could say that there is nothing inherently dishonest about Scentsy products even though they could be used to cover up the truth about the way a room actually smells.

 

SC : What an odd thing to say.
