    Pros

    Discount, co-workers. Generally the environment is good, holiday season is fun, monthly bonus is not great, but better than nothing.

    Pressure of sales, occasionally management pushes too hard, expects too much. Customers often think we are on commission, when we are not.

    Pros

    It’s fun to work with Your Team, and the company takes care of the employees. There are always contests and challenges to work towards and yes, the discount is good too.

    Cons

    Many people in Supervisor/management positions tend to stay there so advancement opportunities don’t happen too often. But there are different opportunities as in changing departments and doing different things.

    Pros

    Great environment. Management is very nice and helpful. 95% of fellow employees are friendly and helpful. It's great to learn about all the new tech in different areas. Great benefits and great discount.

    Cons

    Training is lacking sometimes. It's a very initiative based job where you get an overview and then trial and error to get better.

    Pros

    Discount & beneficial for learning how to use all types of electronics. Plus, if you’re full-time there is a reimbursement of at least 4K.

    Cons

    Training is not as efficient but if you live in Hawaii they send you on a 4 day trip to LA for a great training experience.

    Advice to Management

    Use career pathways for students more often so that they can excel. Appreciate those that work hard and treat them with great incentives.
