Pros

Learned a ton about customer service, upselling, cash handling, tech and paper! Management cared about employees, asked about school, family, etc as well as encouraging employees to improve at work

Cons

Not enough pay. Difficult to get hours when competing with 3 supervisors and an assistant manager. Too much talk of competing with other OMAX stores for minuscule perks. Too much selling, not enough customer service.

    Pros

    Great employees,
    flexible schedule
    easy job
    You get some commission
    Great job if this is your first job

    Cons

    Can be very boring at times
    Customers complaining about prices (which are too high)
    Some work is tedious
    They focus on sales A LOT which can be annoying if you're just working part time and you barely get any commission
    Corporate can be very unhelpful and it seems like they make us do things in an disorganized fashion.
    Pushing a lot of services that nobody wants

    Not knowing where you are going to work everyday. I was suppose to be a cashier, but was put all over the place

    Advice to Management

    Organize employee positions better
