    Tasking, so time flies if you like busy work.

    Cons

    Tasking, so time can seem to drag at times

    Advice to Management

    If you offer to give an employee tickets to go to a hockey game if they sold over 25 printers that month, give them the tickets.... or else that employee would probably not listen to a single other request of yours again and then seek and find a higher paying job a month later.

    Having the opportunity to show the teachers in this community how much we appreciate them when we celebrate "Teacher's Appreciation".

    Getting the customers to understand that when they're not happy or received poor customer service to please ask for a manager first, and we could possibly resolve any potential issues.

    Advice to Management

    You have to sales lead, and be present everyday!!!!
