Pros

Good income but it is based on draw, not a salaried position.

Cons

50 hrs a week is the norm but on Holidays (which is at least one weekend a month) you must week six days and 12 hour days because they extend hours and do not rotate opening and closing.

Advice to Management

Find a way to become more work - lifed balanced

    Pros

    The money is good for an entry level sales position.

    Cons

    Working every night, every holiday, and every weekend gets old really fast. For the amount of time and dedication, and lack of the ability to have a personal life, they should really compensate their employees with better pay.

    Advice to Management

    Don't put your locations so close together. You are often times forcing your sales people to cut each others throat by pitting them against each other to make a sale to the same customer.

    Pros

    Great Culture, Environment, Co-Workers, Decent Pay for a sales job, Good Benefits and Time off is pretty accessible. It's is an okay job if you don't have a wife and small children. 10-8 really takes a toll on family life.

    Cons

    Hours, Work-Life Balance, Favoritism. Not- Transparent--When I started there was no overtime, then I aks how overtime is paid several times with no response. The hourly pay on the check stubs does not match my math and I went to School for Business...I just want an explanation. Also, if you are in a slow store do not expect to make the big bucks.

    Advice to Management

    Look into the small picture stuff more. Take complaints seriously, and be more transparent.
