    Pros

    Fun products: If you like making music and have any level of keyboard skills, you will be entertained at your job. Amazing clients: I have met some amazing people with amazing life stories working here. Flexible Hours: Although sales hours come with a sales job, the smaller family-style environment made getting days off easier even if you weren't a manager. Weekly pay. Good company values. Management maintained a more family style atmosphere and due to the company size, was able to spend more personal time with the front line.

    Cons

    Company was once booming with sales and locations in the mid 90s. However, as the culture has changed, retired seniors (the only client base) have relatively less disposable resources and different interests than home organs. Lowrey, the only company left which manufactures the home organs which Fletcher Music sells, is also downsizing and moved their production plant from Chicago, Illinois to Indonesia in 2011. Obtaining new customers was extremely difficult: I'm talking the top stores getting awards for 3-5 new customers a month. As a result of the above, company morale is down and the company's future is grim unless major change in the product offerings occur. Starting pay is a commission against draw plan with draw being minimum wage. more than half of the company makes the minimum wage and is thousands of dollars "in draw" so it is basically impossible for them to sell their way out of it. Store manager pay didn't seem to be much better from what I could tell.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The big looming problem would be that the customer base is, unfortunately, dying. Perhaps exploring different offerings would be beneficial.
