    Not much advancement opportunities
    Unorganized
    Lots of useless products go through

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make have more quality control on products. Damaged but factory sealed should be discounted. The products are over priced

    I have been working at Tech for Less as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    You have a job for the moment.

    Cons

    Aweful pay, terrible work environment, and a corporate mindset of "even if a mistake wasn't an employees fault someone has to blamed so write them up anyways". They expect skilled technical educated grade work for barely above minimum wage payment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Begin paying people more. The only way you'll ever have a successful business is if you pay comperable money for rendered services. Or I guess you could just continue to cycle through temps like toilet water

    I worked at Tech for Less

    Pros

    Consistent 40 hour workweeks. Bonuses for getting perfect audit scores.

    Cons

    Management is very cliquey and doesn't communicate effectively to new employees on procedures for the job. Training is hap hazard and many times I was given conflicting information from managers on the best way to proceed with a task. Also when the managers are upset at a employees mistake instead of confronting the employee immediately they gossip about it like high school kids. Overall very unprofessional work environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate more with employees and if there is a problem immediately bring it up. Stop keeping on dead weight employees and actually keep employees that want to be there.

    I worked at Tech for Less full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Fun, relaxed off-time environment
    Great for nerdy people who like working with their hands
    Once a month food-themed parties (pizza, bbq, mexican, etc.)

    Cons

    Management is absolute garbage
    - Would expect us to be super fast, but also with no mistakes at all
    - Improper training provided (was not trained on procedures for all product received)
    - Supervisor only around half the time when needed
    - Politics (some managers would try to get easier product for their "team")
    - Would get told wrong info by superiors occasionally
    Immature employees (high-school like drama, stupid pranks, etc.)
    Pay is decent at best

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop firing the wrong people, and start firing the right people (the ones that actually deserve it!!!)

    I worked at Tech for Less

    Pros

    Flexible work environment. If you get on as a permanent employee you get benefits. Time off if you need it though usually not compensated.

    Cons

    Management is in it only for themselves. No sharing of information from the top. Low moral due to unexpected loss of job perks for all the employees. Poor organization in the warehouse and parts department (would constantly get the wrong part for a repair).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your company is broken, fix it.

    Doesn't Recommend

    Pros

    Not too many.
    Sales employees seem happy.
    Several different workable shifts.

    Cons

    Warehouse environment
    Poor pay
    Management rules with an iron fist

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    treat the warehouse people better.
