Legal Slave Labor

Sales Associate (Current Employee)
Lowell, MA

Pros30% Discount on RS brand name products, Low rates on employee cell phone service.

ConsYou do pretty much EVERYTHING from pricing to customer serice, tech support, price auditing, late night inventories, bank deposits, even pretty much redesigning the store itself and get paid MINIMUM WAGE to do it! If they could hand you a paint brush, a toolbelt, and a ladder they would. They changed the commission structure so even though they still want you to sell their poorly made, grossly overpriced Auvio and Enercell merchandise to profit the store you almost literally make zero off that which was not the case before, oh and they also changed their commission base from cell phone sales so you make significantly less than even a year ago. Bi-weekly pay leaves you broke until you get your floor scraps of a paycheck. Over 3 years so far and not one raise-they don't do raises, ever. Not even to the people that have been here 5+. The new "Wireless Consultant" position takes your opportunity for cell phone commissions directly out of your hands and they get paid a dollar more to boot, so that frees you up for more mindless retail statistic work for MINIMUM WAGE?!?! Guess what happens when you obviously need to get a 2nd job? They cut your hours to the point that it's not even worth working. Don't bother asking for full time, they only go to the state minimum, but in the meanwhile your goals are incredibly high. How else are you going to make them rich practically for free? Don't be a sucker, get a better job that at least pretends like they care about you. Oh and by the way, there's no "Middle class", as in no supervisors or shift leaders for a responsibility or wage bump. It's either Manager making salary so you're either there ALL THE TIME or ALMOST NEVER, which I've had to serve for both. Or you're making MINIMUM WAGE and doing everything. No. Thank. You.

Advice to Senior ManagementTrade positions and paychecks with us for a couple months.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
