    Pros

    family owned company. everyone has a word and is able to go to the right people to get things done. owner cares about its employees in an event of an accident.

    Cons

    management system is confusing. There are too many managers trying to do the same job. No 401k match.

    I worked at Standard TV and Appliance full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    All the other employees became friends and family. Everyone looked out for and helped if anyone had a personal problem. Fun environment as long as managers were not there. Could make good money at start but slowly decreased year by year. I worked there for over 10 years.

    Cons

    Managers are browbeaten and crap rolls downhill. By the time I left, everyone was looking over their shoulders. You have about 50% of your time left to sell each day after cleaning your section 3 times, writing your reports, keeping and turning in your figures, researching the competitors ads, restocking floor, etc.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    BACK OFF. The employees will be loyal without you forcing them to be.

    Pros

    Your fellow salespeople, state of the art stores

    Cons

    very bad managers, very bad owner, will browbeat you and write you nup at their discretion. Favorites will get away with lots. Owners is insane and the crap rolls downhill from there. 2 hour sales meeting to browbeat you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Go back to taking care of the customer. That is what your salespeople try to do,,,,,trust them.

    As several of our salespeople earn over $100K per year , we provide them with extensive training resources and on very rare occasions those meetings may exceed one hour.

    I worked at Standard TV and Appliance

    Pros

    Substantial employee discounts on appliances and electronics. Big company picnic. Other than that, I can't think of any pros to the job. I guess it's better than being unemployed.

    Cons

    Very negative and paranoid work environment fostered by the owner. Everyone is afraid of him. Employees are not trusted and considered disposable. Work/life balance is an alien concept. Poor compensation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Replace yourselves!

    I worked at Standard TV and Appliance full-time

    Pros

    Discounts on products is about all it has to offer. If you are remodeling you can save alot. The people that work there are actually really quality people. They are the kindest. I think everyone bonds together to get through the tough times - except management.

    Cons

    The management is run like a fiefdom in the Medieval times. Everyone has Stockholme Syndrome. You can be fired for the slightest reason. HR is a nightmare. They do not support their employees. They serve them up for dinner. It's amazingly unprofessional. It is nothing like the real world at all. It exists in an alternate universe. Management is wholly vindicative and bullies employees every way they can.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let people do what they are good at and stop interfering hourly. Stop the badgering and fear tactics.
