    Pros

    Great training and management
    The experience you receive on this job is incomparable to other retail jobs
    employees are well rewarded for hard work

    Cons

    Some staff can be rude or difficult to work with, but this is to no fault of the company. Rather just the people themselves having bad personalities.
    You WILL encounter many difficult and disgruntled customers on this job.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to expand on rewards and encourage employees to strive for sales. Don't be so hard about pushing protection plans. Be understanding that not everyone is great at selling protection plans.

    Pros

    The easiest job that I've had and it's a ton of fun to meet new people every day. Great networking opportunities!

    Cons

    Sometimes management will put a lot of pressure to sell the protection plans (especially if your numbers are low).

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing your thing, just put less pressure when there AREN'T any customers in the store. We can't magically bring more in and we've contacted them ALL! (just a small tip)

    Pros

    Good job for a College Student, laid back environment, decent job to have while you find a true career path.

    Cons

    Difficult to advance in the company. A lot of promotions are done based off favoritism and who you know. Corporate needs to set a proper structure for advancing, and opportunities for employees to grow. Management doesn't have the experience to run the stores, lack experience, and ability to develop culture within the stores.
