installing

The job was fun and interesting to work. Was able to go to many places to install tvs and home theater systems. On one occasion, I was able to install a tv for a player of the San Francisco 49ers. I also had the opportunity to install some tvs at the Oakland Raider Stadium.

Salesmen Are First Priority

Working as a warehouse employee, you will quickly come to understand that you are not as valued as the salesmen employed by the company. The proof is in the pay. They pay whatever Mountain View decides is minimum wage and they demand that you bend over backwards in assisting salesmen complete deliveries they scheduled OR did NOT schedule. A warehouse employee will always be held responsible for their mistakes , while sales people rarely incur any consequences for theirs. The

Great place to work for someone just beginning their career

The corporate office plays Musical Managers on a regular basis. If you are in management at the store level and your store underperforms 3 months in a row you will be demoted back to salesperson.

Not worth the time and effort I put into it.

Complete waste of my time. No where to go. Management positions were based on friendship with the District Manager. Working condition were poor in a vintage store location. Carpet was held together with duct tape. Archaic Point of Sale Systems and complicated payout system.

Pros

None

Cons

Commision based

Can pay well but company cares little about employees

Help customers find the entertainment equipment that meets their needs. Management is pressured very hard from the top so that usually flows down hill. Building displays is as hard as it gets. Playing with new tech was the most enjoyable

Good pay, long holidays and weekends. Management turn over often.

Was a better place to work when the tv market was stronger. Your commission so you better be able to sell. No paid vacation. Medical is below average. No 401k. Over all an ok place, could have been a much better place to work. Upper management could care less, unless your numbers are poor.

Pros

Pretty steady pay for the most part.

Cons

Weekends and evenings are pretty common. Holidays you work them all for the most part.

Not the best sales floor

Sales floor is very competitive and the mangers tend to look away from sneaky sales associates who essentially steal deals from others. Pay is decent, but the plan could be bumped up a bit.

The last place I could find in a commission structure.

They have room for improvement in many areas. The warehouse is an accident waiting to happen and we were required to lift over 100 pounds in tight quarters on a regular basis and they didn't supply any safety gear. Management was sometimes childish and immature. The way they handle customer situations was not as good as I am used to seeing in the 20+ years I have been in this business. Store policies are a part of this, I would not shop there knowing what I know now .The employees were nice people I just don't agree with the way the company is run. I learned to hard sell electronics. I never had to before but maybe it is just another change in the business model. They feel it is impossible to succeed without doing so.I was much happier at Magnolia AV and The Good Guys and made a lot more money there as well,

Pros

Commission structure was good

Cons

Very little advertising and not very many oppertunities to sell.
