    I worked at TESSCO full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Micro-management has come to an end.

    Cons

    Tessco has lost a lot of good people due to the previous culture instilled by Senior Leadership. Hopefully new Leadership is righting the ship and Tessco will grow and good folks will stick around.

    I worked at TESSCO full-time

    Pros

    Consistent pay with friendly management, air conditioning, willing to teach you cherry picker/ forklift.

    Cons

    Almost impossible to pick 56 items in an hour when one item can have 150 pieces to it but only counts as 1, don't think about going to the bathroom because it will make your count low, low pay ,

    Advice to Management

    High areas such as having to grab a ladder should be for the cherry picker, make more than one box with one item( especially when its across the warehouse) due to making you have low count.

    I have been working at TESSCO full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Decent benefits, friendly coworkers, main corporate office is centrally located and close to commuter routes/stores and restaurants/daycares. New upper management seems to have a good focus on changes that will make TESSCO a stronger company.

    Cons

    Lack of communication both between and within departments which slows work down and makes things confusing. Wide disparities in management styles: some managers are great, others are too far up their own butts, the remainder are clueless. HR is a prominent player in negative office politics and has some of the worst department turnover. Practically have to beg for proper compensation.

    Advice to Management

    Implement leadership training for managers that is more than a backrub for having the title "leader", understand that praise doesn't pay the bills.


  7. "Sales Support"
