It is not your usual mall sales environment. Selling is made fun because of interaction with customers especially for tech-savvy people. The hardest part of the job is only when there are a lot of customers and there are only too few sales consultants to entertain them.

-A typical work day has me out on the road, teaching others about products and services that the company provides. -This job has taught me how to manage my time effectively and manage myself while supporting and coaching others. -Management has changed so many times, I'm not sure how to really comment on it. This company has been in transition, so each – more... year I've had an different direct manager. Even at the highest level, there have been several changes, so it's hard to comment on their management style and future direction. -Co-workers have always been great, fun people to work with.
