I worked at TigerDirect Canada

Pros

Depends on position - but most positions have a high turn over, so they are always looking to fill those positions.

Cons

Think of the movie Office Space, but replace the cause of bad policy and the lack of efficiency from incompetence to machismo/ego/just being mean

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I know Fiorentino is a busy guy. And when I first came on board, the Notes from Gil were interesting - but you have to work on building Moral - it felt like my soul was being sucked out everyday I was there....

    Pros

    Play on the internet for min. wage

    Cons

    Military style micro management. Hopefully you do not get placed on the team where sales manager thinks he is still in the army. Sales manager constantly looks over your shoulder and wonders why you are on the internet when in reality that is all there is to do. This job is basically a waste of time with poor pay. Time working is actually time looking for another job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start over from scratch.

    Pros

    You get paid on time, albeit a poverty-level wage, even in NC. So far, I've been able to fly under the radar, getting my work done in about 5 hours, while spending other time focusing on professional develolpment opportunities and my job search.

    Cons

    Micromanagement. Lack of an effective CRM database. No lead-gen activity. "Old-school" smile and dial operation...not a clue about Web 2.0 marketing strategies, even email marketing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Totally re-engineer the business, by hiring an outside consultanting firm to bring in fresh unbiased ideas and do some benchmarking and gap-analysis. Oh wait, that would cost real $$$'s, you'll never do it. OK, then sell the place to a competitor like CDW, oh wait that means you'd all likely lose your jobs...that'd never work.
