Professional and quick

Destop Support Tech (Former Employee)
Cheektowaga, NY

I worked at Computer Merchant as a contractor for less than a year

ProsVery professional and friendly. Their recruiters keep you up to date on the position you applied for. Unfortunately I had to leave within a month due to a family emergency.

ConsNo actual cons I could think of, but since it's required. We couldn't do in-person interviews, but that was due to us being in different states.

I have been working at Computer Merchant full-time

ProsSome people will tell you that quitting your job and doing what you love is the answer for all of life’s problems. It’s the cure for what’s ailing the stressed out, overworked, and underengaged human. The truth is obvious: quitting your job will definitely not solve all of your problems, working at The Computer Merchant will...

ConsDue to your overwhelming schedule, I've had to sacrifice old habits like healthy eating, recreational sports, and working out. The other day I looked down and realized that I was the size of a mid-level commercial airliner.

Being a Technical Recruiter at TCML has been a pleasant surprise!

Technical Recruiter (Current Employee)

I have been working at Computer Merchant full-time for less than a year

ProsYou are not micromanaged whatsoever. There are usually a large number of reqs to work on at any given moment. Upper management is easily accessible and you do not need to make an appointment to speak with them, you simply walk into their office. All processes are completed in-house, so when you need something completed for one of your consultants, you can walk over to the staff and get it done ASAP if need be. Time will fly by when you are busy. Also, holidays are incredible here! Since it is not

ConsOne of the only things that I would say is the base pay is about average. This isn't necessarily a 'con', but it would be nice to have a bit more the first couple of months (it is the Boston area). However, as long as you do your job properly, you can give yourself a nice raise in the first couple of months anyways.

Advice to Senior ManagementMost of the software we use is pretty up-to-date (and fast), but we need something better along the lines of connecting the phone to the computer for a more efficient ways of calling and keeping track of our consultants activities. Our main system, Outlook and Excel are a bit much to track for one consultant. Consolidate the software so we can move people through the processes faster. The software isn't complicated, by the way, but only if you are good on a computer in the first place. But overall the management here is pretty awesome! The CEO is very down to earth and his executive staff is amongst the best I've ever come across! They create a good work environment and are genuine people.
