Pros

Commission allows for extra earnings (provided sales are successful).
Payment is biweekly and direct deposit required (which most find convenient).
Retail employment looks good to almost any business for future ventures.

Cons

Management has shown a lack of integrity about compensation and policies in the last year.
(A "New Payment Plan" was introduced showing figures of a salary (or hourly pay) raise, and a cut in commission. The new plan dropped commission by over 50% but no employees were given a raise).

Advice to Management

The company should show more integrity with policies and payment of employees. The company should also adjust profit margins, as many of their customers have complained and stopped using Oreck products due to price mark-ups.
As for the question (1 to 5 rating) of the CEO leadership, I'm not certain that Bill Fry is responsible for the experiences I've had with the company, and cannot honestly judge his ways.

    Advancement possible up to store manager. No one currently at DM or higher has come from within.

    Listen to the field. There is a ton of experience and knowledge that is completely overlooked or ignored.
