    Pros

    Excellent compensation for good sales people. Support staff did an excellent job of ensuring company enabled the sales people to do their jobs well. Very very good pay for someone with my level of education.

    Cons

    long work hours and extreme difficulty taking time off for any reason. It is a 7 day a week store on commission, so you didn't want to take time off anyway.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The corporate management was a bit heavy handed at times in dealing with our particular market which had produced a formula which worked extremely well. The product line was becoming too diverse to provide a good sales story with so many competing products in store.

    Pros

    Decent pay if you can sell. Decent benefits. But this is true of most sales jobs.

    Cons

    Hours are HORRIBLE. Don't expect to have a life, socially or otherwise. Don't expect to go to school to improve yourself, there is simply no time. 60+ Hours a week plus usually pointless meetings as others have stated. Fresh out of college managers have zero leadership skills and just berate you, be prepared to bite your tongue and shrug it off.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    CUT DOWN ON THE HOURS. SPLIT UP THE SHIFTS, GIVE EXTRA DAYS OFF ONCE IN A WHILE. SCHEDULE PROPERLY. ANYTHING. MAKE AN ATTEMPT. NO ONE WORKING HERE RESPECTS THIS COMPANY BECUASE OF IDIOTIC THINGS LIKE THIS.
