Pros

The people who work at the Shack are some of the most intelligent young people in this country, in an entry level position.

Cons

The upper level management from the district level and up are a dangerous group to trust. They will constantly set unrealistic quotas for success, and consistently threaten their employees to meet those unrealistic goals or be terminated. The performance based metrics that the corporation use to judge the effectiveness of their employees are always misguided. No one wants to buy service plans on every item in the store yet one of the metrics is always to sell the service plans at a rate of 30%. If no one wants this service why would they require 3 out of 10 customers to buy a useless service. The one thing that illustrates great salesmanship is $$ per ticket and that is never one of the measurements for success. This company is misguided.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Start trusting your employees. End the collection of customer information because no one wants to be on any mailing list.

    Pros

    The commission given is really nice, it allows you to make your own pay check.

    Cons

    When business is slow that commission counts for nothing. Very low base pay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Raise the base pay.
