    Too much a Good ole Boy Network and no chance for Advancement

    Former Employee - Sales in Charlottesville, VA
    Former Employee - Sales in Charlottesville, VA

    I worked at Crutchfield full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    You get a lunch break out of the toxic environment at the Outlet Store
    Discount on Electronics

    Cons

    No room for advancement
    Many lifers there on the sales floor that don't welcome new hires at all
    Poor Management, you have a store manager that just hides in his office and does not provide feedback until you do something wrong
    Too much favoritism for the old timers there who are lifers and no ambition to move up and are content with making just an average salary
    If you do not go with the flow, you are basically an outcast
    Too many people who slack on the job, too much fooling around the sales floor at the Crutchfield outlet store in C'ville

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Where is Management on the floor?
    Stop showing favoritism to your lifer employees and give everyone an equal chance

    I have been working at Crutchfield full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Crutchfield is a great place to work for so many reasons. It is a great learning environment, the people are respectful and the employees are heard! We have a unique culture that is filled with great people who have amazing talent!

    Cons

    The facilities are not perfect. We do work in a nice environment but it is not extravagant. The company has absolutely no debt and this is why we have not experienced a layoff. The perfect facility is not worth the debt.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company needs a career development plan.

    Pros

    Everyone here is friendly and willing to help. Pay is decent. Will never be asked to do something that a senior executive wouldn't do themselves.

    Cons

    I have been working at Crutchfield full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good work environment; coworkers are nice and friendly; set schedule for the most part, may change around holiday’s; employee discounts on thousands of electronics; training if you're Sales, Customer Support and Technical Support rarely get to attend training; and you can also work from home if your senior level support.

    Cons

    Not much room for advancement; limited holidays and vacation time; hourly pay is not the best for Customer Support and Technical Support, but could be worse.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give Customer Support and Technical Support better pay, they are the backbone behind your advertised Excellent Customer Support, they should be treated like they matter.
