    Pros

    Its commission. If you want money work hard for it and you can make 13 an hour or more. Video/audio and computers are the place to be.

    Cons

    Don't go to the bad departments like cell phone sales or software. Especially if the manager is a butt like mine. He kept on adding hours when I was part time. I had 44 hours my last week.

    Advice to Management

    Stop adding my hours! Every other aspect of the job is awesome though.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 6 daysinterviewed at Fry's Electronics (Burbank, CA) in April 2015.

    Interview

    So first after filling out the application i got called in about 5 days. When i went in to the interview i was told they lost my original application. It wasnt that bad though because the manager was super friendly and she seemed genuinely interested in me and she was super willing to negotiate my work hours since i am a student. She spent about an hour describing the job and only asked me if i felt it was right for me. Then i filled out another application for their purposes and i was then walked to the store manager and he seemed a bit more strict, not mean just more strict. He asked me a couple of personal questions that were really easy to answer genuinely and didnt require much in depth thought. The store manager did not show signs that he was interested or not. He was really serious through out the interview. He did on the other hand offer me a tootsie roll. After explaining how i would be paid he then told me that i need to take a drug test and a background check. Pretty painless and i never felt that it was out of reach.
