Pros

Sales experience, provided that most associates have no sales experience. A marginal discount on Cell phone providers via employee line (which is a pain to coordinate but is dependent on your representative).

Cons

Low and ever changing pay structures can cause any employee to ask themselves: "Why am I doing this?".

Advice to Management

Stop calling sooo many meetings at HQ. Try to find a pay structure that is fair. Try to find a solid direction for this company and stick to it.

    Pros

    Truthfully there are not any positive things to say about them anymore.

    Cons

    Terrible corporate direction, extremely frequent changes to employee grading system, poor middle management uses the "fire you" method. No incentive for employees to exceed as all associates get paid the same base and commissions are a joke with the recent changes. Team incentives are poorly planned as 1 bad employee in a store can ruin it for everyone.

    Advice to Management

    Pick a direction for the company and stick with it. Not everyone needs wireless so stop pushing that at the expense of everything else and remember profit is what pays the bills plain and simple.

    Pros

    Most people I have encountered at HQ truly care about RS succeeding. They also are helpful across different functions. Not as silo'd as other companies I have worked for. Integrity is a strong value here.

    Cons

    HQ workers are too timid. Scared to break out of the mold and go against normalcy.

    Advice to Management

    Need a consistent voice from leadership regarding key initiatives.
