    Pros

    Good benefits and if you stay out of the drama it can be fun. Pretty easy going atmosphere.

    Cons

    Crazy pricing, hours, and negativity can get to you if you let it. Also it is commission only which can be very trying during slow times. The pricing is confusing and if you make a mistake, it comes out of your pay.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your managers. Elicit advice from sales people. Change up your advertising and update sales floor. Look at competition and be better than they are in marketing as well as presentation . Take better care of your sales people, you are losing great talent.
