Good People and great starting job

Sales Associate (Current Employee)
Tempe, AZ

ProsGreat team members and management help drive this company.
Understanding managers
Flexible hours
Paid training

ConsNot enough Hours and no set schedule anywhere in the Phoenix areas.
Hiring anyone and anybody to take a position is great but leads to some bad people on the job.
Training is paid but trying to finish or take it up at a flexible time is a problem if you don't have the time.

Advice to Senior ManagementTraining your people better, and the company will shine, also pay us what were worth.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
