Pros

Descent pay once you get into a position above a CSA
Work hours can be very flexible if you give enough of an advance notice to time off requests
Get to work with people everyday and help with suggestions and problem solving for home projects
Not your standard 9 to 5 cubicle job where you stare at a computer screen all day

Cons

Have to be able to work with many different types of personalities
Retail hours and days of work can be somewhat demanding
Pay is just average for CSA entry level jobs

Advice to Management

Take more of an active role in mentoring good workers to encourage advancement through the ranks
Take the time to ensure new employees get proper training before being set loose on the floor.

    Pros

    4 day work weeks, good pay and bonus potential for the work and hours, optional overtime was offered, allowed to come in to work and do your job without a manager breathing down your neck and treated most employees fairly.

    Cons

    Limited inside growth especially at your location, the company does not move people up or out of the positions where you can grow into management roles. They like to do a lot of hiring from the outside or other centers, when very qualified candidates are right there. To many self made positions and front office people that are not necessarily needed.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to those that are in your building, there is a lot of potential in front of you. Make sure to hold the coaches responsible for the team members and if they are not doing their job don't be afraid to make an example out of the popular people or management. Keep quiet about things that are coming or could happen, don't say if you work hard we will have a holiday off , just plan and work accordingly and if it is feasible then announce it. Promises you cant keep only hurt moral and the productivity of the business.

  2. Enjoyed coworkers, not so much the management.

    Pros

    I enjoy working with tools, so it was sort of a dream job to be around them all the time and know what's coming out.

    Cons

    The management at my location wasn't the best. After I moved to a new job they restructured, so I imagine it's a lot better now.

    Advice to Management

    Don't neglect hardware coverage!
