    Pros

    discount when it was available, all the technological toys and keeping updated with the latest gadgets

    Cons

    discount wasn't always available, only certain time of the month which discourages you from buying. management needs better training and growth in the company was limited.

    Pros

    Great group of co-workers from all walks of life. Everyone works together without the usual "it's all about me" sales attitude.
    Causal Friday's
    Ships from our own warehouse as well as using distribution channels

    Cons

    9 hour work day (8 - 5) or (9 - 6)
    No additional or specific sales training offered
    No product training offered.
    Lunch and learns with vendors are more of a money making opportunity for the marketing dept than a useful resource for sales floor.
    Terrible customer management tools for sales agents

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in your employees. Be motivational, it translates to the customers your employees reach out to daily!

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
