Not a bad place for J-O-B but not somewhere I'd try and make a career

I worked at Hobbico

Pros

Minimal interaction from management when doing everything correctly.
Great products to sell and good technical support from industry leading product support

Cons

Focused entirely on numbers and not behind what the numbers mean or could lead to in the future. Management also has a difficult time leading this particular position because it is a sales position that 'isn't really sales'

Also no flexibility with time usage, sales goals, etc

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Learn how to be a good leader. This is for everyone in management, there are only 1 or 2 'good' leaders within the management structure but even they aren't great. You need to learn to respect your employees, support their decisions, and teach them how to constantly improve.

I would also implement 4 or 5 new key results numbers so if reps have a difficult territory in one area they can still see how they are doing in other areas.

    Former Employee - Pick Clerk in Reno, NV

    I worked at Hobbico full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    If your hobbies include anything that has to do with remote controlled cars/boats/planes or puzzles and models, this is a great place to work.

    Cons

    Some of the employees treat this as a big social gathering while on the clock. A lot of cliques in this company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start cracking down on employees who consider this a hang out and then people wont have to stay later just to get the job done.
