    Pros

    Gives you the opportunity to obtain sales experience in an easy-to-learn environment. Management is decent and helpful.

    Cons

    As with any other retail job, you can only go so far up the ladder before reaching your breaking point. Better opportunity for part-time, entry level corporate jobs will pay more/offer more benefits.

    Advice to Management

    Reevaluate your criteria for who becomes a member of the tech sales/service teams. Trying to break into the next level of the company is hard enough, even as a driven employee.

    Pros

    The Boca Headquarters is a beautiful building with genuine and caring associates who are passionate about what they do.

    Cons

    There is a lot of uncertainty with the pending Staples acquisition and with budget cuts it makes it difficult to stay engaged and have a full plate of things to do. Opportunities for advancement continues to be a problem with the requirements (ex need to have so many direct reports, etc) further make it impossible to stretch your skills.

    Advice to Management

    Create a culture of advancement when an employee deserves it rather than focusing on if they satisfy the requirements of how many report to them, etc . This is especially important in this time of uncertainty when all can benefit from additional skills and stretching of their strengths.

    Pros

    Great family friendly work environment. Hours were not too demanding and usually had great staff that was flexible and understanding.

    Cons

    Let's go ahead and get this out of the way...if you hope to really earn money you are at the wrong place. I landed on this job as I was abruptly exiting another and I have to say this was the least amount of money I've made in my entire life. Opportunity for career expansion/growth is not open unless you plan on not making money for over a year and applying for a management position.

    Advice to Management

    You guys are currently doing a decent job but please inform your new candidates that money will be low here and it will continue to stay that way throughout their time spent on the sales floor.
