    Pros

    gained experience in the field, built on customer service skills, each day was a little different.

    Cons

    very pushy for getting sales and upselling, pay isn't very good for what you're doing, some of their policies are questionable

    Advice to Management

    Sure upselling makes the company more money, but it's a daunting task for people who aren't hired as salesmen and are hired as technicians.

  2. Minneapolis market is no place to work!

    Pros

    Products are good but prices are sometimes too high.

    Cons

    District Manager thought he knew everything. Could not give opinion on anything!

    Advice to Management

    Change upper management like DM or Staples will have many more people leaving. Corp. should listen to employees when there are concerns not just the DM.
