    Pros

    Great fellow eployees to work with

    Cons

    Micromanagement, some upper management individuals were some straight busters

    Advice to Management

    Micromanagement killed our retail sector, stop being a bunch of busters, and the company turned its back on the employees when it closed their doors. Go kill yourselves

    Pros

    Cool, down to earth Co workers
    It was a job that (kind of) payed the bills
    I learned a lot

    Cons

    Corporate is clueless
    Minimal room for advancement
    Low pay unless b2b rep with a lot of clients
    There's not much training
    they'll hire anyone as a manager

    Advice to Management

    Listen to what your employees have to say. Working on the sales floor you can see what works and what doesn't work. I don't think the company would have gone under if the higher ups had listened to the people who do all their work for them.

    Pros

    Coworkers are nice and the training you receive is extensive.

    Cons

    Mismanagement, prices that literally cannot compete with current online retailers, and an archaic commission structure.

    Advice to Management

    Management should have listened to their employees. As a result of not listening, the majority of TD stores closed down swapping to online retail.

    Pros

    Great coworkers, fair pay, ok benefits

    Cons

    Executive management have no idea on how to be profitable, results speak for themselves quarter after quarter of losses. Anybody can cut costs and reduce workforce but it takes leadership and motivation to become profitable. Neither exists here

    Advice to Management

    sell the company
