    I have been working at The Dump part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I work at The Dump in Newport News (Hampton), VA and our store manager is awesome. I'm a salesperson. The sales manager is awesome. They will do everything in their power to help work the protection plan into the deal which is awesome because about 30% of my income comes from the sale of the 5 year protection plan. The people that I work with are great and the hours allow me to pursue other interests throughout the week.

    Cons

    You have to work extra days during every holiday which doesn't seem so bad in itself except we're talking about 12 hour days. Sometimes there's 6 such days in a row. I can even deal with that. What I can't deal with is upper management constantly changing our commission plans. Before it was you got 1% up to 3k, 2% up to 5k, 3% up to 8k, and so on and so on. NOW it's 1% up to 6k, 2% up to 10k, and ect. You can clearly see my gripe here. Suffice to say I'm currently searching for a new gig. I play along with a lot of things, but not when it comes to messing with my money.

    Advice to Management

    This is the second change we've undergone in our pay plans in the year that I've been here. A lot of people are talking about leaving. Stop trying to save money by taking it out of the pockets of your sales people. You're only shooting yourself in the foot. The good people are talking about splitting.
