Pros

Good Exposure to the latest technology in the industry. Good salary and bonus. Good technical training opportunity. Its a company with excellent leaning resources.

Promotions take long as its a huge company. Growth opportunity is tough as there is a log of competition. BUt if you are good at what you are doing, you have good chances to shine.

Advice to Management

No advices. Its a pretty good place to work. lot of exposure. And a lot of opportunity to learn and grow. Its a fast pace industry, everything around here gets changed in about 6 months.

    Pros

    Mgmt team was supportive they were all promoted within good benefits great comradery with team nice place to work satisfied

    Cons

    Micro managing made employees very unhappy make sure sales are by the book if your making too much money you will be investigated by operations to see if your sales are done correctly

    Advice to Management

    Commission is sometimes a far reach especially when traffic is very light cannot compare from last years results understand that a new self help tool for customers is the new wave but micro managIng it won't produce results Conference calls for managers would pull the whole mgmt team off the floor didn't think it was necessary for all of them to be off the floor

    Pros

    - free work phone every 90 days
    - half off your personal phone bill
    - good benefits
    - store atmosphere can be good, depending on the managers

    Cons

    - store atmosphere can be awful, depending on the managers
    - unrealistic sales goals
    - the company goes out of it's way to provide customers with cheaper alternatives (website, over the phone, etc.), making it more difficult to do your job in the store
    - constantly changing priorities (and I mean CONSTANTLY, and often contradictory)
    - you are forced to stand all day, up to 10 hours which wouldn't be so bad unless if you're in a slow store
    - did I say constantly changing priorities? one month you're told "X" is the most important thing in the world and you are constantly harped on if you don't do "X." next month, "Y" is the most important thing, and they couldn't care less about "X." one month, you're told to do "A", next month, you're forbidden to "A."

    Advice to Management

    You always say our focus is on the customer, but the salespeople who actually do focus on the customer are the ones who get screwed because the top salespeople are always the ones who fast-talk and churn through sales, rather than do what's right for the customer. Nothing is ever said because they are the tops in sales. Show some consistency! If a specific sales goal is that important, then it should be important all the time, not just for one month. If it's not that important, then don't fire people for not attaining it. Give the stores a fair shake instead of selling phones for free on the website but making us sell the same thing for $50-$100 in-store.
