A company quickly going downhill

Sales Specialist (Current Employee)

ProsGreat coworkers, learn a lot of things about products and technology, occasionally you get a customer that really makes your day.

ConsPushing the best buy card, insurance plans, unrealistic expectations...
I don't feel appreciated at all as an employee. It's always about what I could have done instead of appreciating what I have done. We aren't respected, the discount stinks, and the management is often rude and immature.

Advice to Senior ManagementGrow up. Hire people who actually know something about what they're selling. Appreciate your workers more. Don't be so strict about SHOES in the dress code (I was written up because the bottoms of my shoes were white instead of black). Really, just get your act together.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
