I've been unemployed for almost two years with no jobs in sight. I had a Tupperware party (my first) and was amazed at how much was sold and how much I got free! My consultant showed me how much he made for the night and it was a good amount. I am an older mom (my youngest just graduated high school) and want to know about either sucess stories or bad experiences before I join. Any out there?

I'm surprised no one has replied. I'm not with Tupperware but they are one of the most longstanding direct sales companies out there. If you love tupperware and get great reviews on it I would go for it. Especially if you had a lot of fun with the party that's the best deal with running your own business, making money and having fun. Hope you're successful with it, but sounds like you're not going to have any problems with that. ;)

I'm moving this to the Tupperware folder where you'll get more input. You could also try the Party Plan folder.

Good luck!

I agree with Cass. You should definitely love what you do and if you love Tupperware, it just makes the job even more fun with selling. I've been a Consultant about 5 years now. What's even better besides making money is you can earn all kinds of rewards including trips and money, get a discount on your own Tupperware purchases and that goes towards your sales to help you earn a bigger bonus. Right now you can even earn the new IPad for free and with a team you can earn even more. On top of all that, you get to meet new people through parties and other Consultants as well. If you need anymore help just ask :)

I have been a Tupperware consultant for a year now. I love the Tupperware product, but I'll admit I've found it hard to sell. There are already a number of Tupperware Reps in my area, and everyone seems to have all the product that they need. I've had a few parties, but nothing fantastic - I get enough orders trickling in to keep my minimums up and that is about it. I have had TONS of warranty/returns though. It has been excellent for stocking my own cupboards with great products at a great price!

I recently started selling with another company and it is like night and day. The product is new to my area so I have had no trouble selling. In just 3 months I made Director!! I already have $2000 in sales for July! It is a newer company that is really going places, and I feel like I can go places with them! I never felt that way with Tupperware, honestly. Too much competition.

I'm sorry, but I have to completely disagree with reddress, although it may depend on your location. I started TW in November 09. I am one of the most consistent members on my team with a monthly average of $1200. That's 2-4 parties a month with a random spatter of internet sales. I get some warranty items, but it's usually with an order.

I am right under a Legacy Exec Director and she has training events 2-4 times a month. Not mandatory of course, but it makes a difference for me. I learn so much there. We're growing by leaps and bounds. I have at least 4 other consultants (or higher) in my immediate area, and no shortage of parties.

Where are you located? If you want to hear more, please send me a pm!

I agree with the Other lady is hard to sell Tupperware.
I worked with tupperware for almost two years and same thing happened
with me I was making moneyONLY to keep going and not
profit.
I discovered that people were and still cheating as I got a ton of calls looking for replacements.
Those "broken items" and "missing parts" came from yard sales and Family pasdowns.
I could not make money with that issue, later I saw tupperware selling on QVC!
I had to compete with them too? yes, they sale their stuff in their web.
the training I got was NONE. my upline was not trained either.
people had this idea to recruit and then, that's it is ...done... you will have acheck.
I learned my lesson and I need to Hire my Upline yes, you see it right.
They will get paid for each NEW TRAINEE and then, in the long run my Upline will get comission from my sales.
You would not like to get in a downline were your Upline dosn't know the business!
I ended with tons of product but honestly I don't need them.
This is my personal experience with Tupperware and I don't recomend it to anyone.
The comission is the poorest in the industry with 25%. I was told 35% and was wrong.
that was only "the potential" if you recruit and become manager.(correct me on that if I'm wrong)
I almost make it to Manager but that fade it out becauase the Girls found Tupperware hard to sale.
"People go to to the dollar tree" to buy plastic, People buy it at walmart, or Target.
"OMG IS SO EXPENSIVE" ,"Honeslty once you buy that who need more Tupperware?
is not repetitive! these are the comments of my team and general public in my area.
When I was looking for bookings I often heard
tupperware is more like " DO me a favor thing, but is not something I want for myself"
All my team fade out and with the lack of traianing was really bad.
Again, with people cheating Tupperware with replacemnts and tons of competition who wants that?
The good Stuff...
Now, If you live in a small town where there is NOT a 24/H super Walmarts Each 10 miles and tons of stores, selling the same ... I'm sure people can have some income.
My two cents here, and hope this help soemone.

How is this cheating? Tupperware has a lifetime warranty from breaking, chipping, peeling and cracking. Doesn't matter WHERE you got it from. No receipt required. You don't replace missing parts for free... Even broken items are charged shipping unless they order something else. Turn it into a party or an order. Obviously they love Tupperware if they want it replaced.

the training I got was NONE. my upline was not trained either.
people had this idea to recruit and then, that's it is ...done... you will have acheck.
I learned my lesson and I need to Hire my Upline yes, you see it right.

I interviewed my upline before I signed up. It's very important for sure! I had done Stampin' Up! for a year or so and my upline was like yours. Sign me up, forget the training. Competing for customers. Getting mad at me because someone she knew ordered something from me. Not a good situation and not one I was willing to repeat!!

is not repetitive! these are the comments of my team and general public in my area.

Lack of training is clear here... Plastic from Walmart etc will wear out over time. TW does not. It has a lifetime warranty and you don't have to re-buy it every few months. Good training would have taught you how to overcome these objections.


Now, If you live in a small town where there is NOT a 24/H super Walmarts Each 10 miles and tons of stores, selling the same ... I'm sure people can have some income.

I don't live in a small town, have 24/hr Walmarts, Target, etc around me. There are other consultants in my immediate area. The team I am on is one of the fastest growing in the Midwest. Our sales are 100% over last year at this time.

Bottom line, dgerkens, talk to the consultant who did your party. Find out what kind of training they, or their upline, offers. If it's not much at all, look on the TW site and find a director in your area. Contact them and find out about training, what help they offer, etc. There are other threads on this board about interviewing your potential upline. If that upline is worth anything, they should be ready to answer these questions.

I agree with Navy...especially on the training....
Unfortunately, I don't get much training with my Tupperware upline, and my upper upline doesn't like me much....LOL she actually steps away from me when I get near her, like she is afraid I will hug her or something :eek: LOL
I decided that I would stop going to meetings just for the free Tupperware because I felt un-motivated...BUT...once you have a great customer base (friends, family, word of mouth) you really don't have to worry about those who aren't supporting you, or those who put Tupperware down. Here in Canada we only need $450 every 4 months and I get that no problem and I only do a show once every 1-3 months :) sometimes I take an online order and turn it into a show :)
Though before you do sign up...I would research the upline big time...get all the facts and see how many times they meet and how many times they meet outside of rallies and team meetings. Go with a team that is working together, not each to his own. It hurts the team and your business that way, and hurts morale.

don't forget there is training available online from the tupperware website.

interesting posts. a friend a mine tried selling tupperware for sometime, and wasn't very successful. she mentioned some of the points i read here. lack of proper training mainly, I don't know if she was aware of the online training though.
