    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.


    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.

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


    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.
