Pros

very easy to move up in the company if you're a good salesman and if the store management likes you

Cons

Tons of busy work all the time that is really unimportant, inappropriate conference calls that could be said in an email. You literally do a lot of work for free (off the clock) making deposits transferring inventory from store to store in your your car with no compensation at all

Advice to Management

Get better management, be more organized

    Pros

    Will work with your schedule.

    Cons

    Awful hourly pay, minimum wage for sales associates. The opportunity for advancement is not there unless you have inside connections. They will keep you at the bottom of the totem pole as long as possible or until you quit. This company is EXTREMELY hungry for any dollar they can get their grimey hands on.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to manage and market. More importantly learn how to properly satisfy your customers rather than harassing them for every penny. I understand it's a business, but the extremities of sales is pushed far beyond the limits with this company. Hard work for low pay.
