    Pros

    You get to look at some nice equipment you usually cannot afford. You get to try to convince customers that the junk the company is trying to push is junk.

    Cons

    No guarantee of hours. Did away with department managers and switched to toadying section managers. NO pay raises. Poor benefits. Pushing company owned credit cards. Poor employee discounts. Extreme favoritism. Forced to sell garbage. Staff trained in what to sell by vendors. Often no real knowledge of items no real time to test items. Company knowingly sold defective merchandise. Forced to drive point sales and disregard trying to get return customers. Constanttly trying to have retail sales staff work at registers instead of trying to do their jobs and sell merchandise. Refusal to give commissions. No sick leave. Pressure to stay at work in very bad winter weather instead of going home when safe. No chance of advancement they do not promote from retail to corporate. If you have a scheduled day off and haven't hit your 40 hours for the week you are on call. Cutting back on hours,

    Advice to Management

    Actually re-learn what customer service means. Don't cowtow to the vendors. Stop selling Chinese made garbage. Try to get return customers. Try to figure out that your staff and customers are more important than stockholders.

    Pros

    Products and coworkers are fun to work with.

    Cons

    Do not by any means get sucked into moving to Sidney. Bought a house there and after deciding to move away have had it now five years, can't sell and paid too much given the non existent life, no immediate cultural activities, 60 miles to a Home Depot, 4 hours to a decent restaurant. Clubby, crappy rednecks and a thriving drug trade and homicides top it off.

    Advice to Management

    Get a clue, nobody really wants to live there.
