Pros

There is a lot of earning potential, a fantastic training program, and co-workers are generally some of the best and most helpful you will find anywhere.

Cons

LONG hours, high pressure to close deals to achieve goal and ultimately keep your Job.

Advice to Management

Put a little more effort into new hire development when they start on the sales floor and less focus on keeping them on edge about their employment status.

    Pros

    Fun group of people to work with. Can make good money if your in the right store. Good perks and free concert shows. Its a fun gig for a year or two. You can make a good living working here but you have to know the right people above.

    Cons

    Better kiss up to your DSL and above, if not they will find a way to get rid of you. I was let go and still dont know understand the reason.
    Work/Life balance = Work. When you think about it. 11 hour shifts and working weekends adds up to a lot of time away from home. Inevitably, you'll be working solo and it can be really depressing as all you do is watch other people make money all around you. There are some sharks that will take your sales and upper management is one big fraternity and will take sides on who they like.

    Advice to Management

    For your future employees, you have to make synergy rules much more definitive. There is way too much grey area. Each store has their own rules and the wiki guidelines leaves a lot of room for money to be taken from you and can be easily be manipulated by some that will make it work for them but not everyone else. Also the health plans are horrendous.

    Pros

    good pay, great benefits, lots of face time with CEO, VP, well...pretty much your whole management ladder. Plenty of locations from Washington state all the way down to the California Mexico boarder

    Cons

    Business becomes your LIFE. Also some unrealistic sales goals at poor locations which have NEVER even gotten close to those goals.

    Advice to Management

    Just because it's "Always been done this way" doesn't mean it is the "Best" way.
