    The company has no loyalty to good resources or dedicated employees , laughs will happen at the drop of a hat given they operate on slim margins

    nothing as contract manufacturing/distribution difficult field to manage as you're driven by customer needs and wants

    Pros

    The other employees were really a pleasure to work with. There was a lot of team spirit and morale was high. Awards were given out to the top performing teams as incentive for good performance.

    Cons

    You need really thick skin for this job. Customers with broken cell phones would yell and screen at you from when the door opened to when it closed. Also, the two week training right after getting hired was the biggest waste of time. They were teaching archaic technologies and spent more time scolding people for not dressing appropriately than they did teaching meaningful information. I learned everything I needed to succeed on the job while being mentored by my manager. There was also no information sharing between retail locations. Everything needed to be figured out on the fly, rather than creating a database of common issues and possible resolutions that worked.
