    I enjoyed the time but was employed as a part time employee for extra pocket change.

    I worked at Fry's Electronics part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Compensation was decent as an employee not on commission. Co-workers were all friends in and outside work and all got along with each other to help make the company flow smoothly. 1 million dollar bonus after experience with the company which many are working towards.

    Cons

    No benefits for employees. Employees on commission would push a product to customers for the commission they would earn instead of it being the right fit for the customers needs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus more on the customers needs instead of making employees focused on simply pushing the highly commissioned products.

    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took a weekinterviewed at Fry's Electronics.

    Interview Details

    I filled out the application in-store on a Monday. On Wednesday, I got a call from one of the Customer Service Supervisors asking what time I could come in next Monday for an interview. That Monday, I showed up dressed as a regular Fry's employee (white dress shirt, tie, black dress pants, black dress shoes). A few other people were also there waiting to be interviewed with me. We all got interviewed 1-by-1. The store manager is the one who interviewed me. The interview was your average interview; no trick questions were asked. Once the store manager decided he wanted to hire me, I was told the only thing stopping me from being hired at this point is a drug test. I got the drug test done (urine, not blood) the next day. The same week, I got another call from a Customer Service Supervisor saying my training schedule that would last a week starting next Monday.
