    Pros

    As a customer they have good products at a good price but as an employee, do not even bother to apply

    Cons

    The company is apparently into Data Mining prospective employees as they rarely if ever hire but always have jobs posted. Don't waste your time. First you take 6 tests at home before they will even talk to you on the phone. After the phone interview, they invite you in without telling you that you will spend another hour testing before your 10 minute interview. Before you get home they send you an email stating you are not qualified. I sold their line for 7 years and have a B.A. I believe Age Bias is an issue at the company.
