    Pros

    Can make a lot of money here. Flexible schedule. Usually a pretty fun atmosphere and leadership is positive.

    Cons

    Difficult to establish yourself for the first few months. If you aren't self motivated you will fizzle out quickly.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure the hard working employees know they are appreciated and establish a few more positions that your high achievers can take on more leadership.

    Pros

    IT was very flexible you could work as much or as little as you want.

    Cons

    IT is retail so its retail hours. The Pay is strictly Commission so you better pick good stores and work a ton of hours to make real money. An you travel a lot from store to store.

    Pros

    Great training provided at starting to get you up and running in a month. No sales experience required. Little overhead from managers so you can conceivably run your operation the way you want to. Excellent commission rates and spiffs. Set your own roster. Uncapped earning.

    Cons

    Chargebacks will eat you alive if you aren't careful, same as any other sales position. Open ended management means the snakes will always finish ahead of you. Those same snakes will often secure mentorship and management positions. Little to no direct contact with upper management. Stores are spread very far apart, and gas is not paid for. Had to travel 50 miles every week to a certain store. Benefits aught to not even exist with how pathetic they are.

    Advice to Management

    Organize teams better to reduce commuting for reps. Take a good look at all mentorship promotions. Work on the chargebacks, for Christ's sake.

    Pros

    They are the highest paid commission reps in the industry.

    Cons

    Everyone pays the price. Its dog-eat-dog with a bunch of sugar coating.

    Advice to Management

    Embrace the Shake

    Pros

    Flexible with hours, opportunities for outside sales and uncapped commission structure. Helpful environment with local management team. Works at more than one location.

    Cons

    If you don't like to travel around your area, don't apply as you do work at more than one location. Harsh chargeback structure. Changing away from the customer focused approach is currently affecting sales.

    Advice to Management

    Don't change to charging fees for transactions that wouldn't have such elsewhere. Adjust chargeback structure. Do more local advertising to help compete in this current changing market.

    Pros

    I really enjoy the business culture, team culture, and product culture. As jobs go this one is top shelf quality.

    Cons

    Our market needs a bit more oversight of sales reps. With no local management (everyone on sales floor is an authorized dealer) it's too easy for reps to be lazy. Team leads should be given a bit more management authority with their responsibilities.

    Advice to Management

    I recommend a closer watch at the store level. I aso recommend personal development training to accompany the product & systems training. Offer personal growth opportunities alongside the required other training modules.

    Pros

    You get to be your own boss as well as draft your own hours. The commission pay is competitive with other companies.

    Cons

    There is a lack of benefits. You have to work weekend and nights. Some days you will not make a cent.
