Cons

Straight commission pay which means no certain financial security.

Advice to Management

Management is great.

    Good friends
    Good Events Committee
    Good People Department

    Good conversations
    Softball is fun with our executives

    Cons

    Extremely stressful
    Not paid enough
    Good at selling a pipe dream
    No resources from having techs to saving customers
    Your bonuses are also a pipe dream
    You never know if you are doing anything wrong and then they expect you to already know
    Intimidation tactics are their best selling points.
    Manager don’t know anything shout the department.

    Advice to Management

    I love my job I love what I do. But people can’t tell you what you are needing to improve on in your department if they have never been in your department or do what you have done everyday. There isn’t a way to make a department better if you are never open to listening to what the problems are or are only willing to listen to a point and have someone else fix the problems when the people in the floor know how to solve the problem.
    My advice, pay the people that have been there for a good chunk of time the money they deserve and don’t punish them for expecting them to reciprocate the validation.
