Pros

Great people to work with.

Cons

Training is below poor, they expect you to do online modules, with no hands on experience to actually learn the job. The pay is $6/hr plus commission which is fine "IF" you have customers to sell to, which we barely do. The commission percentages are horrible, and as I've been told have been lowered consistently over the last few years. Lack of leadership, maybe 1 sometimes 2 managers working at any given time. Thanks to corporate cutbacks on management we have no leadership on a consistent basis, meaning the management are so over worked, they are always frustrated and in bad moods. Worst district management I've seen in any company. Management at district and store level are completely out of touch with their employees. Very poor safety standards, which are often disregarded.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get in touch with your people, get their concerns and honestly evaluate the problems and fix them. One supervisor for every salesperson in the store is ridiculous. Making 1 person do 4 peoples jobs may be the trend, but it is costing you business and loyalty.

    Pros

    Training and promotions if you work for it

    Cons

    Senior Techs always get the gravy jobs and the rest are left with the scraps. Plus you do a lot of free work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Train the csa staff to sell the higher paying jobs

    Pros

    Great place to learn retail skills. I liked the environment.

    Cons

    New policies and micromanagement was getting ridiculous. They have reports to see if your processing reports on other reports. The amount of paperwork and procedure left no time for actual productivity.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give some breathing room to your local management team.
