    I have been working at Visions Electronics full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good pay structure, open minded mentality, great people to work with, 100% Canadian. Visions Electronics is definitely a place only for the hard worker if you want to be successful. Which is perfect for me because you get rewarded immediately for hard work. In a capitalist society it makes perfect sense (you get rewarded for what you do). The people at my store are great, everyone is focused on giving a great customer experience and we all have fun doing it. I like this company because it isn't "top heavy" upper management wise and when need changes need to be done, they really do listen. The company is very people oriented because it understands it's the people in the store that make the business successful.

    Cons

    Pay fluctuates during the year (commision based). You also have to put a lot of time in, just as if it were your own business.

    I worked at Visions Electronics part-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    flexible shifts. Lots of staff have worked there a long time, great people

    Cons

    -Awful pay, worked for the company for 5 years and only had a 0.50 cent increase. Even new workers got paid more than me. -No structure in the business. -No equal opportunities. -There's favoritism. -Manager's didn't do anything but delegate to the point that they just stay on the phone and talk to friends while salespeople work their lives off. ( of course this is different for each store ) , they also take 2 hours break. - Don't care about employees.

    I have been working at Visions Electronics full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I do work with great people, and the employee pricing makes it tough not to spend half my paycheck there!

    Cons

    For operations, there's nowhere to go unless you start at the very bottom. Sales staff can eventually make it to management and are treated like gold (as long as they sell). Salary is also capped at below industry standard. Tough to make a living.

    Pros

    Great people to work with, overall. Support staff tries to be supportive, and enjoyable to work with.

    Cons

    With the managers there, their job is to placate to their bosses who are on Mount Olympus. You address your concerns to them, but it feels like they are on deaf ears, as they are inflexible to change. On pricing: it can be negotiated, but to the point they want you to go as low as you can to close the deal, but they harp on you for low gross profit numbers. Granted you want to be compete with your rival retailers for pricing, but your ceiling should be your retail pricing, not your sales pricing. Compete with others in terms of technology: only on their bread and butter, Home Audio and Video. Nothing else. They have no computer department, as notebooks are the only "computer" thing they really sell. Because of the vacuum left by a retailer that closed shop in the area, they could have picked up the slack, and filled in that hole, but they're short sighted on that aspect. Before I left, it was an old boy's club. If you didn't work a particular manager back in the day, you weren't handpicked to be a manager at another location, when there is a spot open.

    I worked at Visions Electronics

    Pros

    The other staff, company-wide. Being in the warehouse, doing service and warranty, it really is a plus when you speak to and work alongside with great people. The monthly bonuses are also a great incentive.

    Cons

    The training is very minimal. A lot of the job is learning on your feet. I did not ever receive a performance review. To get a well-deserved raise was like pulling teeth. Management was not very hands-on, from GM to DM.
