    Pros

    They have great benefits such as tuition reimbursement, retirement, health insurance, and an option for a monthly bonus. It is a great job if you are a college student, and they work around your schedule. Management is fair within the store level, and the district managers are great.

    Cons

    Restructuring of the company within the last few years has displaced some good employees.

    Advice to Management

    Restructuring is needed in order for the company to stay nimble; however, in order to succeed more employees need to take ownership of the business.

    Pros

    Good hours. Great job if you love talking technology and to people. You learn a lot on the job, you do not have to be an expert.

    Cons

    Low pay which can really start to hurt one the holiday season starts up. High hours with little reward. Required to work during thanksgiving.

    Advice to Management

    Keep putting the employees first. When you have a good team to handle then the team will take care of you.

    Pros

    Flexibility with your career. You can change direction and jump to an entirely different team and that is widely accepted around the company. I haven't had the same experience with past employers. If you get your foot in the door and make connections, you can transfer to a job that interests you (if your current position does not).

    Cons

    Your manager really dictates your pay. I have had crappy managers and great ones. I have had my pay increase dramatically just because my boss went to bat for me. Don't let anyone tell you they can't make it happen. They just have to fight for you.
