    Pros

    The commission structure can be really nice at times, I made over 3000 in a consistent basis. Know your value.

    Cons

    The structure is always changing, management is sloppy in areas but one you hit a DM level, you almost get to do whatever you want as long as you got goal. Even if it is unethical

    Advice to Management

    When considering a DM honestly consider if they are genuine or just "playing the part"

    Pros

    There is a lot of room to grow if you’re willing to sell your soul by selling tablets to people who don’t need them. Great peers and your salary reflects the work you put in.

    Cons

    My regional manager flat out told us that meeting our goals wasn’t acceptable and that we were to exceed them so he could get promoted.

    Very high standards and everything is about the bottom line. You will never be more than an expendable number to them.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your people like you want them there or you won’t have anyone left. People before paychecks. Very simple concept.

    Pros

    Training is very well-rounded and provides a solid outlook on the sales mentality the company wants. Management on the district level, at least in California, was supportive. Store operations is incredibly easy and helping customers with their accounts can be rewarding. Reasonable health benefits.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, the sales mentality the company wants to implement is nowhere near that. Current store management uses archaic and sleazy sales tactics from flat out lies to barely legal strategies. Promotions are a joke and are based solely on seniority and favorites.

    Advice to Management

    Cut out toxic management on the store level and reward employees on their merit.

    Pros

    The company is constantly aspiring to improve their ways and adjust to new ways- it's impressive. They take employee feedback seriously and change things where they see it makes sense for the employee and employer. They constantly strive to be employer of choice and in my opinion sometimes bend too far backwards for employee satisfaction. Upper management asks for a lot but that's to continue to keep people on their toes and increase development of bottom line. They top priority to the higher ups in the company is development and growth of their current staff. They make that very clear in the way they do business.

    Cons

    Industry is constantly changing. If you're not a quick learner or can adapt to new techniques quickly this type of job would be overwhelming. Sales can be stressful, you need to be able to manage stress and use time management.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to listen to your staff- it's working and many people notice.

    Pros

    40 hours/week. Fun employees. Lots of locations across the US, good for relocating if necessary.

    Cons

    Slamming customers with items they don't need, is encouraged. Company doesn't care about its employees. Instead of firing employees, they'll transfer them to another location. Nonstop standing. No days off from November 15 - Jan 5.

    Advice to Management

    Increase hourly wage.

    Pros

    If you enjoy using other people to get what u want, u will fit right in

    Cons

    You will get jerked around by the ever changing commission structure that is nearly impossible to figure out most of the time. The company doesn't care about it's employees at all. Yes, you will earn PTO, but good luck ever actually being able to use it, and when u are approved to actually use your time off, you will be made to feel like u are letting the company down. There is almost no positive reinforcement or feedback from management for meeting and exceeding goals, just threats of punishment and consequences for not meeting those goals.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees better

    Could make a decent living at one point.

    Upper management do not understand sales and show no leadership qualities.

    Advice to Management

    Train reps, managers, district managers, regional managers, and any other management position.
