I worked at Standard TV and Appliance full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

All the other employees became friends and family. Everyone looked out for and helped if anyone had a personal problem. Fun environment as long as managers were not there. Could make good money at start but slowly decreased year by year. I worked there for over 10 years.

Cons

Managers are browbeaten and crap rolls downhill. By the time I left, everyone was looking over their shoulders. You have about 50% of your time left to sell each day after cleaning your section 3 times, writing your reports, keeping and turning in your figures, researching the competitors ads, restocking floor, etc.

Advice to Management

BACK OFF. The employees will be loyal without you forcing them to be.

    I have been working at Standard TV and Appliance full-time

    Pros

    Positive relationships among employees. Everyone seems pretty polite, and willing to help each other out. There are many opportunities to grow in the company.

    Cons

    There seems to be somewhat of a disconnect between different departments in the company, which can, at times, cause communication issues.

    Advice to Management

    You can’t give too much positive feedback. Excellent customer service and productivity comes from satisfied employees who's needs are being met.
