Pros

The employee discount is nice and management is usually pretty good about working with school schedules. DURING MORNING MEETINGS WE usually get bagels and you do get good accomodation programs through vendors.

Cons

You don't always get the best hours and the pay is very low for how much you sell. You should get commission based on how much you sell.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Pay your people better more

    Pros

    Fun creating a great experience for customers, knowing how much they will enjoy a new home theater, which for many will be their first large TV. Opportunities for bonuses as a store if sales are above 100% to goals.

    Cons

    Management and supervisors micro-manage due to pressure from corporate. Unnecessary meetings on Saturday mornings. Unnecessary follow-ups after EVERY sale, and constant questioning about why you sold/didn't sell certain products.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give the sales people a chance...many are great people, but suffer from constant pressure from upper management.
