    Pros

    Good Discount on most things. Management is very flexible and is always looking to coach, train and help in any way possible (most of the time). Fun/low risk environment.

    Cons

    If it isn't holiday season, and you aren't full time, don't expect a lot of hours. Although we receive bonuses based on group performance, it still isn't much. For the amount of time and effort departments like mobile, computers, HT, Mag etc... put in, in terms of selling the latest devices as well as accessory attachments and protection, it's unfair to not receive any type of commission for that hard work. That would keep us motivated, if we made commission, I wouldn't consider another job any time soon.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the good work up guys, but honestly we put in a lot of time and effort and should be rewarded more than the minimal bonus that we earn.
