Pros

The people at the hq are helpful. They listen to employees and usually will attempt to contact the person in order to fix the issue.

Cons

Poorly trained, vindictive management. My manager would insult his workers on a daily basis and the calls to hr would not resolve the issue. Favoritism is rampant. The benefits are a joke, the management pushes it really hard as if they would receive bonuses from your loss. As far as the benefits, the company runs a site that contains the contacts for the providers. The problem is that the contacts are expired. As far training, I was left to figure out procedures on my own. Pay is not good unless you sell a lot of equipment. I started with $8/hr after 5 years of employment I made a $1.50 raise.... while the management boasts about how much money the store is generating, they want you to work longer hours and will not pay overtime and holidays. If you have a family be aware that you are gonna work holidays and you cannot request that time off, as a matter of fact management might threaten your employment

Advice to Management

Train your managers and have more respect for your non-management employees.

    Pros

    In general, the atmosphere is very positive, very fun. Work is exciting to go to and be at.

    Cons

    Income does not match the output. They entice you with promise of commission, but it's not enough even if you make it.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your salesman like gold. Your metrics ultimately depend on them.

    Pros

    They had great discounts for their employees.

    Cons

    There was no leadership or guidance in my job. There were a lot of politics in my department...a lot of cliques. It was a very immature place to work. They gave me a boss that had no clue what my job entailed. I would never go back. The worst job in my life!

    Advice to Management

    When you hire people, make sure they have someone to lead them and train them properly.
