It's Okay

Sales Associate (Former Employee) Issaquah, WA

Pros- Flexible Hours
- Friendly Environment
- Helpful Management
- Overall Easy Job

Cons- Low Wage (while they advertise "competitive" wage)
- Frequent Change in Management
- Only 10~15% discount for associates
- Required to Sell Protection Plan and Sign up Rewards Cards
- No incentives or Commission Pay
- No Real opportunity for Growth inside the Compay

Advice to Senior ManagementHave some incentives for Sales Associate to work harder to sell the protection plan, a little more than a good job. GM gets a bonus check based on store sales, why shouldn't the hard working associate get a cut ? And do not scrutinize an associate for not selling a PRP or Rewards sign ups, while there is nothing in it for us.
