    I worked at TigerDirect Canada full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    discount when it was available, all the technological toys and keeping updated with the latest gadgets

    Cons

    discount wasn't always available, only certain time of the month which discourages you from buying. management needs better training and growth in the company was limited.

    I worked at TigerDirect Canada full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Friendly work environment
    - Worked with some great, knowledgeable technicians
    - Good managers (at least where I worked)
    - Allowed me to schedule for more hours when I needed it

    Cons

    - Variety of products so no good alternatives for customers
    - Commission structure designed to push poorer quality products onto customers
    - Prices are always higher than the alternatives

    Advice to Management

    Advice too little too late: work with product manager to get products people actually want on the shelves/website and do something about Canadian supply chain so that prices can actually compete in Canada.
