    Pros

    The really care about meeting sales goals but that is all. They do whatever it takes to meet those sales goals, for things like geek squad, and that means lying to the customers. They want you to get in the customers face and make them basically say yes but you cannot.

    Cons

    They do whatever it takes to meet those sales goals, for things like geek squad, and that means lying to the customers. They want you to get in the customers face and make them basically say yes but you cannot. Also they want you to keep asking to where it completely annoys the customers.

    Advice to Management

    Managers should watch the associates and see how their performance is and not based on the numbers. Eventually the numbers will speak for themselves because if the employee tries really hard that should be enough. However, it is not enough for managers.
