Tedious tasks, forced to push "MaxAssurance" that was a waste of money for consumers.

Retail Sales Associate (Former Employee)
Scottsdale, AZ

ProsGain inside knowledge of technology and software used across multiple industries. It also allowed for relatively easy advancement within the company.

ConsMinimal pay, forced to push insurance plans on products that it wasn't really worth in the first place. Expected to meet unrealistic goals for sales of the indurance.

Advice to Senior ManagementBe more entry-level employee friendly. The decisions/actions you have taken in the past were not in the employee's best interest.
