    Pros

    Discount is legit, nice stuff to work with, break room is legit, and we get discount on food and drinks

    Cons

    None really, but work is consuming sometimes, sometimes only you on your sale floor, some departments don’t really work as hard as yours sometimes

    Advice to Management

    Give me some commission on gsp. Also I like for a gaming console in the break room. Also I like more organized laptop bag section instead of rows of pegs.

    Employee discount is awesome. Also get accommodation pricing in a vast array of products direct from the vendor's, which are heavily discounted.

    Greater appreciation of the work performed. Provide additional labor to help ease the burden on the GM's.
    Also need to pay hourly employees a better wage if you want to retain them.

    Advice to Management

    communicate better with your employees and get the schedules out earlier, not saturday night right before the next week.
