Job quality depends on location/management.
Tech sales/consultant (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 5 May 2019
So I worked there for a handful of years. Worked in several stores, and was promoted a few times, even took a demotion when I moved across the country. The quality of work seemed to change dramatically from location to location.
I had worked with management and GM's who were FANTASTIC - best manager's ive worked with to date.
I also have worked for management that was utterly useless in application. I left the company due to management essentially pushing me out the door by having unreasonable requirements, that actually negatively impacted how I dealt with customers, and were unwilling to listen when you mentioned this fact.
Head office used to be pretty lax about stuff, we used to be able to bend the rules slightly... Now, they want cookie cutter stores where everything is 100% identical to eachother.
I used to be one of the top sales people in the district. Since then I'd lost my passion for sales, with more and more metrics and robotic conversations being expected of me each day.
No two days are the same, benefits package was pretty comprehensive, discounts on tech is always nice.
Bad work/life balance often requiring home based unpaid training, head office is becoming more demanding
