Pros

Fun environment, lots of young people working here, free food all the time, great management that are very likable and knowledgable. Great bonus structure if you meet your goals- you can make another 15,000 a year earning bonuses

Cons

It's a difficult job and has ups and downs just like any sales job. People get frustrated, but the ones that stick it out will see a huge pay off

    Pros

    Honestly, not a single thing.

    Cons

    I worked there from 2005-2006. During my time, I uncovered the fact that they were withholding spiffs from their AE's, even though the money was paid to Zones from vendors. They mandated that AE's had to sell items at a certain price to get the spiff, which is pretty much illegal. I tried to run this up the flagpole, and it appears that this was nothing alarming, and I even had a high up executive admit that in fact they were paid the spiff money regardless of whether we sold it at 0% or 20% margin. They were stealing from their AE's basically. Not sure if this is still happening, but I'm glad I'm no longer a part of the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hopefully Murray can right the ship, but I'm not overly optimistic.
