Pros

Great Executuve leadership, fantastic Manager

Sometime seem like only interested in perfect deals; perfect margin, perfect pricing etc. Sometimes you have to decide to take a less than perfect deal and manage it up.

    Pros

    Convenient location, reasonably nice co-workers, IN THEORY being able to help customers with computer problems, customer contact, part timers get benefits

    Cons

    Seriously? How much space do I get? Think of anything and everything bad at your current job, multiply it by 10-that's what it's like...excessively rigid mgmt. policies, corporate IT that has less of a clue than your average 10 year old, legally entitled meals/breaks given at the whims of managers, horrific pay for knowledgeable techs, constant & unyielding pressure to sell extended plans, advancement based almost exclusively on selling skills rather than tech skills, work scheduling a disaster...I could go on, but you get the idea...

    Advice to Management

    Incredibly simple: You thought you could provide an alternative to the dopes at Geek Squad? Guess again...you blew a great opportunity. EasyTech is no different from GS-performing genuine tech work is worthless, it's all about how much crap you can shovel onto a customer, whether they need it or not...and to call your training programs "certifications" are the worst sort of insult to legitimately recognized professional certifications...Staples' certifications merely mean that you answered 10 multiple-choice questions on how to sell junk...and to advertise your techs as "certified" means squat. Try telling an A+, Network+, MCSE/MCP/MCSA/CCNA that your certs count...let them laugh in your face.
