Pros

The pay is actually pretty good in comparison to some of the other stuff I've seen out there. As long as you can sell you'll do fine since your real money comes with the commission check, not the hourly one.

Cons

Corporate tends to set goals that have nothing to do with what is actuall happening in the local area. With a downturn in the economy they expect you to sell more, and on a sliding commission scale this can hurt your pay.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't assume that good sales people also make good managers.

    Pros

    Under 40 hour work week....for a sales job that is rare.
    Good benefit package.

    Cons

    Many changes happening during the difficult economy....restructuring pay and commission that results in less pay. But, the management tries to spin it as a great opportunity and a great change that wont result in a reduction in pay. They try the same marketing and SALE ideas over and over. Little change in the approach to drive sales and create more interest in thier product. Select Comfort is where I experienced insanity; trying the same approach and hopeing for a different result.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Time for a change at the top. Better training for store manegement. Good sales people dont always mean they will be good managers. People skills, leadership, coaching and training abilities should out weigh past sales numbers of potential store managers.

    Pros

    Relaxed work atmosphere and a great product. Ability to get out and make connections within the community and do a lot of event coordinating.

    Cons

    Little to no advancement opportunities. Struggling company that may or may not make it through the recession - in the meantime, look for your pay to be cut repeatedly. Frustrating lack of adaptation to the current marketplace. Decreased quality control means increased return rates and customer service issues. Pay structure for managment is counter productive in the curent bonus structure format. Hit less than 80% of your budget, get $0. No bonuses past 100% budget. So, if you're not going to be able to hit 80%, pack it in for next month. If you're already at 100%, pack it in for next month. That's not a productive pay structure - for the employee or the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on more and better product marketing.
