    Pros

    Pay is great as long as you are motivated by making money. Hitting your commission quotas is just part of it, the more you go above the goals, the better your paycheck becomes!

    Cons

    There is a lot of drama within each store. The management seem to all have certain 'cliques' that exclude employees. The management will also do certain exceptions for themselves or their families/friends, but any employee below them never gets anything. Management is rarely in the stores, and when they are, they are playing on the internet and should be on the sales floor helping employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Store management and district management need to be more involved. Store managers play on their computers on facebook, craigslist, etc when they should be on the sales floor interacting with customers and or helping their employees. There are definite 'cliques' between management. When they have 'meetings' they will have posts on facebook hours later with pictures on everyone drinking alcoholic beverages, playing games, goofing off, etc. This is not a business meeting.

    Pros

    Good benefits, pay was decent when sales quotas were met.

    Pros

    Currently there aren't any pros.

    Cons

    Brown nosing is a must. If you're good at this, this is the job for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be considerate of others. Consideration of what actually goes on in the work place is not known to superiors. Just corporate's ability to manage a business from their office unaware of what actually goes on or how it effects customers or employees
