Current Employee - Sales Authority  in  San Diego, CA

Pros

A couple times a year we get a cost + 10% discount. Which pretty much means that everything is at least 50% off.

Cons

The management at my store was horrible. The store manager couldn't handle anything, the floor managers would sit around and watch football all day, and almost all the managers picked favorites.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

More training and more reviews.

    Pros

    * An easy transition into the "working world" from college
    * Met some lifelong friends
    * A lot of things are spoon-fed to you

    Cons

    * The culture at the company and moral is terrible
    * You do the same repetative thing like a monkey every day
    * You're not encouraged to use your brain
    * Some middle managers treat you terribly-insult you, cuss at you, yell when you make a mistake
    * Your "mentor" is too busy/stressed out to help you
    * Other people resent you for being part of MTP and getting training they never got
    * You are stuck as an "allocator" for a minimum 2 years before you can even think of moving to the buying side of things
