I worked at Standard TV and Appliance full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

All the other employees became friends and family. Everyone looked out for and helped if anyone had a personal problem. Fun environment as long as managers were not there. Could make good money at start but slowly decreased year by year. I worked there for over 10 years.

Cons

Managers are browbeaten and crap rolls downhill. By the time I left, everyone was looking over their shoulders. You have about 50% of your time left to sell each day after cleaning your section 3 times, writing your reports, keeping and turning in your figures, researching the competitors ads, restocking floor, etc.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

BACK OFF. The employees will be loyal without you forcing them to be.

    Pros

    Your fellow salespeople, state of the art stores

    Cons

    very bad managers, very bad owner, will browbeat you and write you nup at their discretion. Favorites will get away with lots. Owners is insane and the crap rolls downhill from there. 2 hour sales meeting to browbeat you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Go back to taking care of the customer. That is what your salespeople try to do,,,,,trust them.

    I worked at Standard TV and Appliance

    Pros

    Substantial employee discounts on appliances and electronics. Big company picnic. Other than that, I can't think of any pros to the job. I guess it's better than being unemployed.

    Cons

    Very negative and paranoid work environment fostered by the owner. Everyone is afraid of him. Employees are not trusted and considered disposable. Work/life balance is an alien concept. Poor compensation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Replace yourselves!
