    Pros

    When you made money it was good working there.

    Cons

    Standing around a lot. Too many salespeople. Owing money to the company.

    Advice to Management

    Corporate owners and VPs are a joke. Since I have been there they have taken money from the sales staff on a constant basis. The economy is slow right now, and they continue flooding the sales floor with more people in order to not pay employees more money than they have to. The more sales people the less that people will make, yet the store continues to make the same amount of sales. Corporate wants the sales people to only make their hourly draw and not to make commissions. When you don't cover your draw, you then owe the company when you do have a good month.

    Pros

    This job allows you to creat your own employment with your own customer base. Offering you a four to five percent commision rate gives you motivation to try harder. Grands also offers a wide range of products.

    Cons

    If you pay child support you can not afford their insurance incentives. The commision system is all wrong, you don't even get an hourly salary, straight commision. Don't I work for you. Management will overprice products and making it difficult to create sales opportunity.

    Advice to Management

    Need to offer some type of minimum wage for sales associates with better more stable commisions. Look for more types of styles and don't be affraid to buy good quality, that's what people want.

    Pros

    If you work in sales and are decent you can make a good commission.

    Cons

    Lack of management focus. Rules change frequently and executive management very closed minded. Can be long hours and don't expect any "thank you's" or "good jobs".

    Advice to Management

    Exec management needs to experience things a to store level to understand how customers have changed over the past 10 years. The same old methods don't work as well as they used to. Spend a month working as a salesperson, or even a week, you might be surprised.
