    Pros

    Excellent compensation package and fun work environment. Tons of toys to play with and fun customers to intact with on a daily basis.

    Cons

    Employer no longer exists. Not much opportunity, to grow with the organization. If only Circuit City still existed and did not get destroyed by best buy.

    Advice to Management

    Don't buy inventory that's no longer wanted by your customers.

    Pros

    goods never had an A++
    A typical work day is 8 - 5 and you sell online advertisements. Days consist of meeting, calls, training, and office activities.

    Learned how to sell, cold call, negotiate, communicate B2B.

    Hardest part of job is resisting the free food. Most enjoyable is being on the phones and talking to different people.

    Management: A+
    Co-Workers: A++
