An enjoyable retail experience that promotes growth and development of skills
Sales Respresentitive (Former Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 5 February 2018
The Source is an enjoyable place to work, with a progressive mindset focusing on a growing industry, offering a respectable commission and supportive staff granting genuine motivation for improving your skills. In an industry where change is the norm, The Source does it's best to stay on top of keeping employees up to date with the shifting landscape of technology, making sure staff are always knowledgeable. However this is also the major source of problems with The Source's business model; mandatory sales statistics requiring salesmen to push products and upgrades on customers, leading to a poor customer service experience for the sake of commission if not handled carefully. This also creates an unbalanced advancement system that favors people with the ability to sell over the ability to lead. To conclude, The Source is one of the better workplaces in the retail sector, but is not one in which to pursue a career unless your are seriously driven to sell.
