    I worked at American TV And Appliance full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Friendly work environment with great employees and management. Also had a great employee discount program which employees could use after 30 days of employment.

    Cons

    Poor commission system which encouraged employees to sell products to customers which were not always in the best interest for the customer. Commission system was almost set up to make employees fail.

    Pros

    They usually hired great people. Sometimes they would hire some people you would scratch your head over. Even after they asked your opinion of the person.

    Cons

    Hours are terrible. Benefits were OK. Good ol' boys club for promotions.

    Advice to Management

    They should have fired Doug R. to save the company. Listened to Lenny, after he put his own money back into the company. Sad that what Lenny created, Doug ruined.

    I worked at American TV And Appliance full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    American TV was well know and a very large company offering great products, brand recognition and a huge team of staff to support the company.

    Cons

    Opened up too many stores outside of Wisconsin and the upper management got greedy. When Len left it started going downhill.

    Advice to Management

    As it is too late now, I'll just say that it is too bad and shocking that they closed. I still had friends who worked at the original corporate store and it was hard to see them loose their jobs.
