Pros

It has some decent products for those who can afford

Cons

training is lacking. management is non existent. sales rep is responsible for lead generation, no vehicle reinbursment, crummy insurance, extremely competative market, to many sales people in regions, hand written paperwork that is personally processed from beginning to end and then faxing.About 20hrs a week doing paperwork. 30 hrs driving to sales, 20 hrs handing out flyers at front of Home Depots. regardless of efforts, constantly demeaned and treated like a child. 6 months before getting paid commissions. very disappointing and frustrating. 70 hrs + a week and considered part time.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Respect the sales force as the life blood of the operation. Don't over hire and over saturate a region. Build on strengths and don't threaten sales force like they are children. Follow through with training and don't leave us learn as we go and by mistakes.

    Pros

    All applies to my store.
    1.Very flexible work schedule
    2.Friendly atmosphere
    3.Good Traing
    4.Easy to move up in company
    I started as a lot associate about 6 months ago and i am already moving to a specialty department in which ill be making about 2$ a hour. As long as your flexible and willing to work your ass off things will go well for you.

    Cons

    Very political but doesnt bother me much becaus I'm liked but if you are not life maybe stressful.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to be more helpful to associates questions especially cashiers and lot associates, When they call to ask you something just help if they arent in another dept its due to lack of knowledge so they are asking you so they can assist customers.
    Hand out more homer awards.
