Pros

You are encouraged to create a "book of clients"and "run your own business." You are fairly autonomous and you are able to run your business the way you see fit. Management is easily approachable and will assist you.

Cons

It takes a while to be an accepted to the sales team. There is a double standard between the sales staff and the management team. The CEO is under a lot of pressure to perform, and is raising the bar on a daily basis. To succeed you need to open Credit Accounts and do end of the sale Surveys.

    Pros

    Double discounts for employees are very good.

    Cons

    No place for growth or advancement. Pay is low and pressure is high. Higher management keeps pushing and does not realize that we cannot force customers to come in the store and make purchases. Sales associates are hit for the returns.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    People on the floor know what they are doing. Please ask for their feedback instead of assuming that clientelling is enough to bring customers. A little more useful marketing is needed.
