    Pros

    Working part-time you can adjust your work times to fit other things in life. From an entry position there is room to advance.

    Cons

    Like most jobs from an entry level position you can expect to work on holidays, and the work pace can get challenging at times.

    Advice to Management

    support your employees and they will make you look good as a manager. Always work with them and lead by example, you will keep good teams.

    Pros

    You are the Manger of you Commercial sales. Your sales reflect workable hours. When you strive for the best you become the best. The better you do your job the better your sales are. They have the market.

    Cons

    They don't pay what your worth. The get problems solved at company level, takes forever. You strive for Diamond accounts then when you have themy the company seems to start pulling back on resources for those accounts. Drivers, vehicles, etc.

    Advice to Management

    When someone turns sales around from the previous fiscal year in 6months, this person is a keeper especially when the margins are with in company spec. Commercial is very competitive on sales and on help. Keep the awesome help happy and enjoy the sales benefits.

    Pros

    A nice discount, very flexible about days off

    Cons

    Overpriced items in the first place so your discount gets you no where, management is a hit or miss 90% of the time, raises are very small (1 to 3 cents usually), long hours, difficult installations, heavy products which are very often moved

    Advice to Management

    Start looking within for your managers, stop treating your employees as if they are replaceable

    Pros

    Great experience free ASE Certifications.

    Cons

    Not enough pay for the work you put in. When in a growing commercial store they want you to succeed but do not help give you the proper tools to do so.

    Advice to Management

    Give hard wprking employees better wages to stay and quit loosing them.

    Pros

    With Commercial, you work mostly Monday through Saturday, and no closing shifts. There's bonus potential if you're a new commercial program or if you're over 6.5k a week

    Cons

    This region's upper management is lacking anything but lip service. There's no room for advancing in this area as district management has been there over twenty years.

    Advice to Management

    Do more than lip service
