The managers don't really care about much, they just show up and hide most of the time that they are there.

Pros

It is what you make of it, but don't expect anyone to really help you out. If you start to do good most of the managers will notice you and I kid you not

Cons

No one really cares about what you do. You don't get any type of training whatsoever. You just show up pretty much, everyone hates working there, even the managers, which would surprise most people as to how can people not like working selling technology to customers? It's one of the easiest jobs out there.

Advice to Management

They should get new management, they should hire people who are suitable for the job, people who are excited to work and who are leaders, not managers who can barely walk, or walk with their cell on glued to their hands, while walking everywhere and not even looking up. From the moment she walks in to the moment she leaves she is on her cell phone no matter what. (this manager is the worst one I have ever seen.) Not even joking!!!

    Pros

    Typically there are good people to work with. The company values are good and the employee discount is a good incentive. Sometimes the people that are promoted are not really all that adept at the job they are promoted to.

    Cons

    The pay is not always stellar and the benefits have not been as great for health in recent years as previously. They had reduced the employee discount a good bit and reversed it to the better discount recently. I can see them reducing the discount again in the future as a cost cutting effort.

    Advice to Management

    I would suggest that they pay attention to turn over rate in a department as this indicates if there may be something wrong with the structure or the leadership.

    Pros

    For young adults the starting pay is decent.

    Cons

    Bad management and complete disregard for the employee experience

    Advice to Management

    Employees treated with better regard will respond better, and as a result perform better.
