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

    Pros

    I worked in Loss Prevention as a Courtesy Associate. Our pay depends on how well we perform, ranging from $9-$13.50. However, your pay can go up or down every 13 weeks, depending on how well you do. We check customer receipts as they are leaving, catch mistakes on plu numbers, inspect all returns and exchanges before approving them, assist with the Loss Prevention Officers with the apprehension of shoplifters, monitors employees working inventory (we dont have to take inventory, we just watch the other employees do it!), and perform walk arounds and dive arounds after the store closes. All the employees respect you too because you are the one who approves them to leave the store by doing "pocket and purse checks." Discounts are also provided throughout the store.

    Cons

    Standing all day with no chairs or any floor padding for your feet, dealing with rude customers when you find a mistake on their receipt. Also, you are the first and the last person customers see, so you hear complaints from them ALL day.
