    Pros

    Somewhat decent benefit opportunities to full timers

    Cons

    Too many responsibilities, sales people tend to take advantage and dump customers on customer service reps when they don't feel like the commission is enough to ring up the sale.

    Advice to Management

    Stop promoting sales people to management, most of them don't know how to manage

    Pros

    Really get your feet wet in sales and quickly. Good people for the most part still there. Excellent job for college student making decent money while working hard and learning corporate America.

    Cons

    Every manager is different. Most stores will not keep the same GM over a year so it is hard to keep the morale flowing. Commission got lower every year on product... much lower. Warranties are hard to believe in so then for hard to sell unless you are appliances or used car sales grime. Upper management is probably the worst thing about the company. Mostly has beens from circuit city and sears who obviously did not deserve s second chance. Horrible hours and expected manual labor will run anyone good at sales out.

    Advice to Management

    Too late truthfully. Only good salesman left there are the ones to dumb to get out.

    Pros

    enjoyed the people I worked with

    Cons

    Company went "public" and the culture changed overnight. No longer a "family" business. Used to run a store like your own business then it became an HR-run company with newly acquired Sears execs.

    Advice to Management

    Don't change the pay structure when people start making money. When people make money that is only good for the company.

    Pros

    No Pros only some nice coworkers. Really nothing to add thats positive here.

    Cons

    Horrible work life, Terrible pay managers steal commission. Managers screams at coworkers.

    Advice to Management

    Upper Management dont let any Joe Blow without manager skills be a manager. Brown Deer location needs some clean up with dishonest managers.

    Not much to speak of, here

    Cons

    Too many to list

    Advice to Management

    Internal Customer service is a thing.
    Staff your stores with more managers.
    Spending a little isn't a bad thing.

    Pros

    It's a job, it fed me for 3 1/2 years. If you work really hard you can make an ok living.

    Cons

    Rotating management schedule makes a family life next to impossible. Extremely difficult to work for. Too many rules, procedures, paperwork. Hours are long and arduous. HR is a nightmare. Hiring someone is next to impossible to deal with softwarewise.

    Advice to Management

    Consider that you have people that work for you, not robots. They have feelings and other things in their lives besides work.
