    Pros

    - Company Vehicle with unlimited gas.
    - Fairly linear retail hours/schedule.
    - Matching 401K up to 5%
    - Somewhat competitive salary depending on whether you qualify for their "Leadership Development Program" or not.
    -Coworkers are generally good people.
    -Comprehensive training on retail sales process which involves paid flight to corporate headquarters for a week.
    -Generally not micromanaged (depending on manager) which gives a sense of autonomy.
    -Quarterly meetings twice a year involve three days at a conference with paid training, meals, and opportunity to "network".

    Cons

    - Promotions are based on ability to relocate, and mainly based on nepotism/favoritism/informal relationships and not based on true performance.
    - Organizational culture is based on a sycophant, groupthink mentality that is ignorant to constructive criticism. Any deviance from the status quo labels an employee as "not a team player" and essentially disqualifies them from any opportunities within the company.
    - Human resources will make a concerted effort to ignore inquiries from employees if they do not benefit the company. This includes things such as compensable time and lost wages which depending on your state of employment can be illegal.
    - Management will discourage any valid claims you may have concerning the company such as HR issues.
    - Due to the organizational hierarchy, divisional sales managers have practically all power over a region. There tends to be a prevalence for them to discriminately promote a highly uneven ratio of a certain type of person. That being someone who is caucasian, in their 20's, from well known "sports schools", student athletes. Because of this power, lower level territory managers for fear of employment status or lack of promotion, will essentially throw representatives under the bus at the divisional's request.
    - This company has the potential for a massive lawsuit for ageism as there is a significant pay gap between those in their LDP program and those who aren't. Reason being that both do the exact same job functions but are many times just as qualified.

    Advice to Management

    A company's culture changes when there are sweeping changes from upper management down. Unfortunately as long as the numbers continue to trend upward, you have no reason to stop considering first line employees as anything else but expendable resources. It breeds a culture without accountability and one of false pretenses and expectations from the employees side. As long as promotions continue to be based on nepotism/politics with the token minority and not innate ability and actual merit, your company will continue having the extremely high turnover it does.

    I worked at Techtronic Industries North America full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great Perks like getting a truck with an unlimited gas card; medical/dental insurance; solid salary; and quarterly trainings

    Cons

    Shady marketing, bad promotion rates for people who weren't ready while leaving others who were hard working but in areas frequented less often by upper management. They encouraged shady marketing and sales practices and had little accountability for the trustworthiness of their employees. Bad upper management who rarely checked on territory managers. Our territory manager never checked on us never had accountability to look after us within his territory.

    Advice to Management

    Physically walk the stores more often with those in your district and area. I had an upper-level manager schedule me three times and flaked out every time so I was never given a chance for promotion because he hadn't met me yet.
