great commpany to work for
Sales Rep (Former Employee), Akron, OHMay 19, 2014
Pros: everything was positive about work.
Cons: no benefits
I loved selling computers in Best Buy. My main objective was to teach the people in the computer dept. how to sell Intel process computers over the AMD processor. Interacting with the employers and customers was fun. The hardest part of the job was making sure that the employers was getting the information right and passing it on to the customer correctly. – more... The most enjoyable part was listening to the employee make the sale of the Intel computer processor.. The management and training I received to prepare for work was the best – less

Good company to work for part time
Sales Representative (Current Employee), Akron, OHMarch 25, 2014
Pros: flexible work, good training techniques, well organized.
Cons: limited time to complete some tasks, limited advancement opportunities.
A good company to work for part time. Full time positions are limited. They are very detailed and organized for training and communications, and clear on structure and expectations. Compensation is fair, although the time estimations for completion of certain types of work is underestimated in many instances. Most of the work is independent and you – more... are expected to complete it without constant supervision. Hours can be flexible in some assignments and they are very reasonable with scheduling. Typically, you show up for an assignment, do the work, log in and out, and write a report afterwards. Co-workers are friendly, supportive, and helpful. The hardest part of the job is the reporting with limited time to complete. The most enjoyable part is the people you meet and interact with. As a result of their very good training methods, you will gain a good amount of general and technical product knowledge. – less

Working From Home
Regional Sales Manager (Former Employee), Houston, TXMarch 3, 2014
Pros: working from home
Cons: low compensation, low job security, frequent management restructure
In my 8 years at Actionlink, not only did I learned about the latest and greatest in consumer electronics, I gained the ability to become an effective leader on and off the field, work with some of the most talented individuals in the tech industry, and travel to some the most exciting cities in the US. Often times, working at Actionlink does not feel – more... like work because I enjoy it.

While there are many perks at Actionlink such as the ability to work from home and attending electronic conventions, there are some challenges...(after all, this is still work). One of the toughest challenges for a Field Manager is maintaining talent. Since full-time work in the field is limited, the most talented representatives on the team will eventually leave to look for a more secured position elsewhere and management would have to hire again. Depending on location, the level of difficulty increases as you move into more remote areas with minimal pool of applicants to choose from. Due to this challenge, a manager is constantly in recruiting and staffing mode. In some cases, this may occur on a monthly basis. Staffing will be significantly more difficult during Q4 when one has to ramp up and hire approximately 100-300 more reps, respond to countless emails, run multiple Blitz programs, adapt to last minute changes, and work with a limited budget. (Note: Surviving Q4 at Actionlink will give you a very rewarding experience and provide you with the confidence to conquer the world.)

Overall, my time at Actionlink was quite positive and I would recommend it to anyone who loves gadgets, has a passion for sales, and enjoy working with people. – less

Pros: flexiblity, compensation, advancement
Cons: work availablity varies
I loved working for this company. It was the best mix of flexiblity and great wok hours. Getting to meet new people and interacting with people. They scheduled you in plenty of time that you knew your schedule so if you had to make arrangments it was possible.

Marginal - Only if you need the money
Merchendiser + (Former Employee), Dubois, PANovember 20, 2013
Pros: schedule your own hours, work the days you want (minus friday -> sunday), schedule the times you want, document printing reimbursement (10 pages is like $1, so it's not much), mileage reimbursement (only over 30 miles, and not a high rate)
Cons: extremely low pay, very low advancement opportunities, bad management communication, bad management follow-through, instructions are often misworded, tech helpline often does not know what to do on their own, stores are often not told of the project before starting
The company is 'okay' to work for. Basically put, you'll be working less than 15 hours per week (for the most part), and be expected to drive 0 - 200 miles for work (only reimbursed at .25 or so a mile). Average pay for a single 1 hour job is about $9. Average pay for a single 2 hour job is about $15. Simply put, over a single two month period, I made – more... maybe, MAYBE $400. That's not much.

You do learn some new skills for merchandising, and you meet some interesting people at the stores. Plus, there is room for you to work on the sales side as well (which is where the real money is). However, the chances of that are slim.

Managers rarely return emails on time.
Managers rarely answer phone calls on time.
Managers could care less about your personal travel needs; if you can't travel for the job BEYOND your designated area, you are pretty useless to them.

Dress uniform is different depending on the job; so having several suits clean is important.

Company culture seems nice, but you are not actually part of the company.

Hardest part of the job is pictures. If there is even one flaw in your picture, you can be in trouble, or not be paid.

Second hardest part of the job would be travel.

Third hardest part of the job would be communication & training; while it is true you are paid to train, the training is using minor cbt style videos, and then just repeating the test results in the video for your 'certification'. Failure to do them perfectly = failure to pass the test = failure to be on the team (I didn't fail any). – less
