Positive team trying to sell. I wasn't good at commission sales, however the team atmosphere was amazing. I had fun advising, helping customers with their electronics questions. Management knows how to run the business, they've been around for awhile. Stores performance may be attributed to supply and demand in the area. Even the owners put their two cents in on selling, it was a bonus that an owner would speak to us. Training was cool, Training happens almost everyday, colleagues shared information or spoke about issues they've had with electronics. Vendors came to demo their new electronics regularly and we had group lunches. I am happy to see 2001 around.. Never a problem with payroll, HR was always accessible when required for questions. It was too bad i didn't excel at sales. I left behind a great group of work colleagues.
No Cons, have nothing to complain about.Continue reading

Not a lot of supervision from management at the store level other than district managers stopping by from time to time. Good place to learn sales skills.
Imagine a store from the 70s that hasn't changed since the 70s. Very low pay and no safety standards.Continue reading
A trained and experienced Store Manager or Assistant Manager is always on duty at every location. We do loose many people that are only looking for a "job" but are not interested in becoming a commission sales professional. It is normal attrition in our industry when a person is not suited for commission sales that they earn low and leave. Individuals who embrace our customer service sales methods earn much more than average income. If an individual is very poor in sales they earn a minimum of $22k a year(minimum wage). Many earn twice that amount and more when they apply our selling methods and they do not simply "take orders". The company takes Safety standards very seriously. We comply with the many regulations in the province of Ontario.

Nice people, good training and learning experience. I enjoyed the time you have to relax when/if store is not busy. You get to meet lots of people and learn all kinds of things as well as network which is great.
Low pay and employee retention programs/initiatives. I really wished the pay was better since I had a tough time maintaining bills and other payments on low salary.Continue reading

Employee purchasing plan. Training is barely, but up to par. Some schedule flexibility. If Sandro is your district manager, your overall experience will be better.
Generally poor management, management lacks skills, education and experience. Many sales people lack respect for each other and this is mainly due to low salaries and poor commission programs. Every single employee starts to develop hatred and resent for this company, they stay employed by them and eventually move up to management with poor attitudes towards others. Pay structure is terrible, minimum wage bracket and benefits take effect an entire year after employment.Continue reading
Only low performing employees earn minimum wage. Many new recruits do better than minimum wage after one or two months of working with the company. If you worked for us for three years and were still making minimum wage then we do need to improve on our management skills. We are more proactive in evaluating low sales now and if a salesperson earning minimum wage after 4 or 5 months and they receive progressive warnings and supplemental training then we do let the person go because they do not fit in with our ales environment.
