Pros

You get to sell the latest tech toys, there is the capacity to make a decent living if you want to, usually a good group of people to work with.

Cons

Horrible upper management, "boys club", never get rewarded for the work you do, everything is based upon the amount of sucking up you do. People are given positions based on who their friends are, while others that have earned promotions get tossed aside. Margins have declined dramatically, and commission structures change frequently to make sure the big shots at head office can afford their private jets, while the salesperson starves.

Advice to Management

Realize that the real people that are making you all rich are the ones in the trenches, and start paying them better.

    I have been working at Visions Electronics part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great work environment and really easy job. You mainly just talk to people and get to know electronics. Really easy

    Cons

    Can be boring at times. Lots of dull moments and working off of commission can mean where you are in the store will determine how much you make
