    Pros

    Very chill place to work at once you learn all your operation duties. Great way to learn about making the sale and upselling customers. Get work with the latest electronic devices that make life much easier

    Cons

    Company is in a constant state of change and uncertainty. Business is very slow at times depending on where you work, negatively effecting your commission and sales numbers. Stores are closing at an alarming rate

    Pros

    The employee discount is nice, and you can make a few extra bucks off of commission

    Cons

    Strong corporate presence, and you have to learn about 6 different departments worth of electronics or else customers and higher ups will chastise you

    Advice to Management

    Consolidate and stop changing so many things

    Pros

    Meet great people, opportunity to control store.

    Cons

    District managers are not the best fit and are frequently replaced. Each DM has different ideas so its too many changes, that deviate from company standards and policies.

    Advice to Management

    Hire better management(DM, RSD) let managers run stores, follow 1 company policy to many bosses.

    Pros

    Many technologies, many new visions

    Cons

    Lack of focus, company bankruptcy, now run by a hedge fund, to be sold some day in the future.

    Advice to Management

    Pick something to be good at, and stay with it. Understand your customer, understand your business.

    Pros

    It was an okay place to work at times, and a good place to learn skills that you could then take to another company for better pay.

    Cons

    Mismanagement, wasteful spending, limited thinking and typical upper pocket lining by the executives while screwing the workers.

    Advice to Management

    It's obviously too late for advice as the company filed for bankruptcy and appears to be headed for oblivion.

    Pros

    Used to be a large stable company with room for advancement

    Cons

    Too much micromanagement. Upper management keeps changing their mind -no consistency.

    Advice to Management

    The last 15 years with the company never once had a member of upper management ask my opinion about anything.
