Profit driven company with little regard for values

Sales Authority (Former Employee) Oakdale, MN

ProsSports atmosphere
Fun co-workers
Customers are typically friendly and enjoyable to help

ConsMore concerned with profits than value
No loyalty to workers
Forced to sell useless warranty plans
Problems are deflected onto lower workers rather than creating plausible solutions

Customers have the most contact with associates, if the associates are miserable because management is threatening them for "poor" sales the customer will see this and be less motivated to return.
