Pros

Great working environment Excellent employee discount Ability to excel in the company very fast Great co workers

Held to lots of standards (although every store is different)

Advice to Management

Don't hold your employees to such high standards to where they literally want to quit.

    Pros

    Innovative employees who are solution oriented Great campus with amenities Dedicated employees Could move fairly fast for the size of the company

    Cons

    Leadership changed direction all of the time and wasn't very transparent Forgets mistakes it made too fast and makes same mistakes over and over Culture dampened by multiple rounds of layoffs Pay not as good as other retailers in the same market

    Advice to Management

    Remember previous mistakes and reward employees who are loyal and deliver results

    Pros

    Very generous employee discount, meetings with vendors were fun, a lot of room to move up in the company.

    Cons

    Far too much emphasis is placed on selling service plans. Even though you aren't commissioned, you must still make a quota or face the consequences. Supervisors do nothing but belittle employees who do not make quota. Associates will do whatever it takes to make this quota, even if it means having a customer leave the store for not purchasing a service plan. This type of pressure creates unwanted stress in the work environment, and for this reason, it is not a good job for college students.

    Advice to Management

    Value the customer, whether they want to purchase a service plan or not.
