Management didn't know a single thing about technology but everyone else was good. Unfortunately, it closed down. During the holidays, the commission would add up and it was a fun time to work there.

Hard to critique- the senior management was corrupt. They were caught and received probation and prison. It made the employees nervous. When employees become anxious, it effects work
Pros
Decent people on the floor
Cons
Theft, job uncertainly

TigerDirect had the best inbound call center I can think of. Sales coaches were always there to help, vendor managers would assist daily. Overall great company.
Customers would always be happy.

Great place to learn and grow within. Very high paced environment resulted in high stress levels but were easily diminished due to great team of coworkers. Sadly this company was run by a greedy, greedy CEO that was under the impression that he was untouchable with his fraudulent ways resulting in getting caught, fired and ultimately the entire organization being sold to a competitor with only a skeletal crew transitioning over to the new company.

I had wanted to work here for years, and I finally got a seasonal position just before Black Friday in 2014. My first day was stocking on the Wednesday before the event, then on Friday, they put me on the sales floor without any training. Even so, I quickly learned the layout of the store, how to write up tickets, and connect the right products to the right clients. I quickly became one of the top sales people in the region, and was brought on for a permanent position. Unfortunately, two months after that, we were informed that the company was closing all of there retail stores locally. Even so, I was one of the few that stayed until the last day.

I enjoyed working as a sales representative and the pay was very good when in the first 3 years of working there. I became very efficient with the programs used and assisting the customer.

Ehhh you’ll never grow here. Management is not open minded and selfish- their culture is OLD school thinking woman can’t do good in Technology!! They don’t give you raises as they should- very good with hours though, flexibility.

It was an amazing place to work during it's time. The company and leadership made it a great place to work and asked just as much from the employees. It was finding it's place in retail so was open to suggestions and tried new things that helped to build a culture for the employees and customers alike.

Awful. Managers were all high school friends who hired their own friends. Sales calls were cherry picked and routed to individuals of choice; not by merit. Just bad practices all around.

In the beginning things were friendly. It was an exciting place to be to get first look at newest products. Product training was a constant as were competitive incentives for bonuses. One big family all day long. After a couple mergers and some management changes, things may have moved in a different direction.
Pros
Giveaways, easy scheduling to a point, always learning.

I can only account for my time within the sales department with them and while I had great people to work with, the daily quota of calls to talk time ratio was soul-crushing, particularly if you were new and didn't have the benefit of working established accounts. Since it was commission based, if you had a bad month, you really did suffer depending on the types of accounts you had.

bad company. Don't waste your time or energy working for these folk. They're a shell company that lies to employees and pretends to be something that they're not. They're a reason the CEO has sold the majority of his stocks...

Pros

Cons
no raises, move to stations that needed help if the store, was busy or not.

This company was doing great until they decided to expand into retail. Unfortunately they tried to grow too fast and ended up closing. But I enjoyed my years here.

Micro management, stressful, learn to deal with customers and issues on an every day basis, preparing quotes, invoices, collection learned about Computer hardware, software, networking products and recommendation of products that will work in the consumer business.
Management was harsh and rude and difficult to deal with. No balance with work and lifestyle.

Putting up with the daily stress and management style.

Enjoy working with customers providing the best service andsolution for their need.
Pros
Ocassionally provide lunch
Cons
Micromangement, unreasonable. Cannot take time off. Managers are quick to write up agents.
