    Loved working here. Overall professional and friendly atmosphere. Strong leadership and core principles.

    Pros

    Great department and store manager but that greatly depends on your department.

    The (majority) owner is a greedy crone who would rather get a larger paycheck than keep nearly 1000 people employed.

    Pros

    The people at store level & the flexible schedule.

    Cons

    Simply not enough space here to list the last many years of negatives, but i do have to single out the directionless & stale corporate vp "leadership". No matter what else you read or hear, they were the number 1 reason the end came in 2014. There wasn't one positive from corporate after 2007. Not one.

    Advice to Management

    Good luck finding new jobs. The corporate vp's do not deserve one.

    I have been working at American TV And Appliance full-time

    Pros

    Relaxed corporate environment. Flexible work schedules.

    Cons

    Vision not clearly articulated within the company.
    Poor marketing execution.
    Salaries are not competitive.

    Advice to Management

    Should have overhauled all things marketing. Should have put some young fresh minds in senior management.

    I worked at American TV And Appliance full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Incentive based firm that promotes vertically. Great opportunity to start a career in sales. Good training, good 401k.

    Cons

    Non-progressive management style does not make necessary changes to remain ahead of the retail curve. Work/life balance.

    Advice to Management

    Mix up senior management with fresh, young minds. Leadership is dated, theoretical and does not take the necessary risks to stay competitive.
