Great workforce and great place to learn sales. Learned a lot for the 8 years i was there
Sales Counselor (Former Employee), College Point, NYJune 29, 2015
Pros: Energetic and fun place to work
Cons: Kept getting commission cut
PC Richard and Son was a great place to work and a great place to learn about advancements in technology and home appliances. Their management team are hard working and kept up store morale pretty well.

Salary was great when i first started but steadily got worst as the years went on. Commission was cut but hours were not.

A typical day at work would start with arranging and cleaning your assigned section and help any customers that might need any help.

I learned a lot about people skills as well as sales. Any new products and new technology coming out was taught to us by corporate head quarters and they made sure you knew what you were selling.

Management was great. They were and still are extremely hardworking and keep up store morale with their energy and enthusiasm. They would help with anything you needed and would make sure a sale was made.

The hardest part of the job was staying competitive with my other co-workers. Since it is a commission based sales job, it could get pretty wild. I always stayed level headed and always told myself there will be other sales if it was one i lost to another sales person.

The most enjoyable part of the job was working and meeting different people. Taught me a lot about different cultures and I made a lot of new friends.

Workplace in PC Richard & Son
Sales Representative (Former Employee), Forest Hills, NYMay 30, 2015
A typical day at work would consist of scheduling service appointments for customers. Constantly receiving cash from purchases being made. The managers and co-workers treated everyone like family. I learned about being responsible, dedicated, as well as punctual. Enjoyable part of the job was conversing with the managers about their struggles in their work life.

I liked it but...
Sales Counselor (Former Employee), North Haven, CTMarch 20, 2015
Pros: you get to work days
Cons: you have to work nights
Working here is fun if you make it fun.

If you're a sourpuss, anti-social, or value time with your small child or kids, then look elsewhere.

If you're a woman, don't anticipate any advancement opportunities.

If you're gay, stay away.

If you have a smidgen of morals, then this is not the place for you.

I will say that you will work long days, nights, weekends, and holidays.

I will say that you have to be aggressive and hungry to be the top seller everyday...not just every other day, or week, or month..no..everyday. Otherwise, you will end up in the hole owing, yes owing, $20,000 for your base salary, as an example.

I will say you are required to maintain the beauty of the showroom...between sales there is no idle time. There is cleaning, inventory, follow-up calls to make, team meetings, etc.

Horrible work place
distribution rep (Former Employee), farmingdale nyJanuary 18, 2015
Pros: hours
Cons: short breaks, 30 minute lunches, rules didn't apply to everyone
Wasn't a great job and most definitely wouldn't recommend this place to anyone. The pay is terrible for the amount of work you have to do. The rules certainly didn't apply to everyone. Every week there's a new rule. Poor poor management. They would hire people and these employees would leave before the day is over That is how bad of a work place it is.

Tough commission based environment.
Sales Consultant (Current Employee), Nanuet, NYDecember 9, 2014
Cons: long hours
If you are enthusiastic about sales than this is a good position for you. This location is not as busy as many of the other stores which limits your income potential. The management style is based on intimidation and at times punishment. The hardest part of the job is getting customers to come in, otherwise it's the long hours. The best part is the people I work with. I have learned that you must look out for yourself because no one else will.

As a PC Richard associate I worked in the ACE department selling various electronics such as radios, car stereos, cellphone accessories, video games and tablets. The job, although slow during the day provided me with much experience in negotiating sales that I have been able to use in other fields.

not family friendly
Accessories Sale Representative (Current Employee), Brooklyn, NYSeptember 16, 2014
Pros: random giveaways
Cons: a lot
this is a single mans job. They ask you to work a lot of hours with no promise of job security. the salary is ok, but you are a salary employee and they completely take advantage of that by making you work long hours. If you try and call out sick they take away your vacation days in its place and you still have to make up a day during the week.

not a good environment to develop in or advance. if you have a ton of free time and no options then you go with this company

Productive and fun work place with amazing coworkers
Assistant Manager (Current Employee), Jersey City, NJSeptember 4, 2014
Pros: great training programs.
PC Richard & Son was an amazing experience, good company with a strong culture. My coworkers were all great people most with a sales background. Management took me under their wing to teach me all the ins and outs of the business. As well as show me how to run a happy and efficient store.

The hardest part of a day would be down time, when the the store was slow and no sales coming in. The advantage was you had the chance to follow up on old sales and straiten out the store.

Managers are very receptive to productive suggestions.
Co workers are friendly, courteous and a joy to work with.
The most difficult part of the job is not being able to please everyone all the time.

Sales/Manager (Former Employee), Woodside, NYJuly 22, 2014
Pros: good working enviroment, good place to meet new people and expand business.
Cons: long hours not enough life
My day at P.C. Richard & Son was exciting, spontaneous, I just never knew who I would meet, And who's life I would come to change with technology, appliances, or even just a simple personal sales consoler that catered to customers. I managed 20 sales personals in a block long showroom. I worked about 10- 12 hours a day. I organized sections with merchandise, I put together displays, Improvised on the ratio of how many sales we're getting closed and how many were not and why. At the end of the day I was just simply trying to make a difference.

Pros: you keep tips from customers for yourself
Cons: lots of downtime
lots of moving things around for lazy salesmen.
learned a lot about electronics.
management was good and efficient, being in a family owned business had its own advantages against a corporation. Physical labor with big refrigerators was the toughest part of the job.
