very flexible time off options and benefits management very understanding and easy to work with sense of family and unity within work group easy to foster and build relationships and network

Cons

job compartmentalization can be repetitive and mundane management may not be knowledgeable about job specifics very subjective performance appraisals overly reliant on hard numbers to determine job performance and employee worthiness

Advice to Management

offer ability of entry level positions to participate more in different projects in order to expand on their knowledge and skills about the business that will aid in career development and progression

  1. Terrible Leadership, even worse work/life balance.

    Pros

    Awesome benefits from day 1. Decent job in a recession or for someone without a college degree. Fortunately, the team with whom I work is fun and mostly supportive. In store management is fabulous.

    Cons

    Hours are terrible. The worst upper management I've ever worked with. Incessant, threatening emails and conference calls. Unreasonable quotas for certain items that are only met by a few, shady employees. Mandatory weekly meetings @7:30 a.m. on a Friday, regardless of your work schedule. "Trainings" (punishment) held @7:30 a.m. on Saturdays, regardless of your work schedule. Quotas are only adjusted in favor of the company, not the employee. For instance, last month, over 3/4th of our employees did not make quota and received warning letters.

    Advice to Management

    Monitor local leadership. Threats and nagging do not make for happy employees. Useful training and tips do. Please do not send me threatening emails in all caps, seriously, it is disrespectful and you should have learned in Management 101. Please give me work/life balance. Meetings that start @ 7:30 am, when I don't get off until 8:30 p.m. two days in a row consistently make for a not happy and very tired employee.

    Good compensation but annoying micro-management and retail hours.

    Pros

    The compensation is pretty good. If you work hard and you are a good sales representative you will be compensated. The benefits are good.

    Cons

    Constantly micro managed for all kinds of little things. Lots of paperwork. Managers are concerned about so many different selling possibilities that they nit pick about the little things.

    Advice to Management

    If a sales representative is successful do not give them are a time about the little things. Treat your employees like adults.
