    Pros

    The best reasons to work for Circuit City is honestly the great accommodations program they had. It allows you to get a great discount on brands the store may get and many times you may get up to 75% on the product.

    Cons

    It may be the most unprofessional place to ever work at. No one has a clue what they are talking about, not to mention that the so called management gives you conflicting orders. No matter how hard one works they will never be properly recognized for their efforts and all you will ever receive is scrutiny. The reason customers get bad customer service is cause Management does not care, therefore the employees do not care.

    Advice to Management

    I would advice them to take some Management classes in the local Community College at least.

    Pros

    This job gave me some great benefits. Including great medical, dental, vision, 401k, and stock purchase program. I had on average 3-4 weeks paid vacation a year. The other staff was very pleasant and you can make some long term friendships there. The retail environment can give you some good down time and some good busy time. There was a great balance of both busy work and relaxing work. Working in the TV department gave me the ability to watch virtually any movie I could think of. The employee discount allowed me to get the entertainment system I always wanted.

    Cons

    The retail environment could be annoying at times, with working long hours, weekends, and holidays. Working on "black Friday" was the worst. It would typically be a 15-18 hour workday. Management would always pressure you to go over and beyond to sell the products without any type of compensation. Pushing the "warranty" program could be frustrating at times, if you did not sell it you would be scrutinized by your manager. The professionalism of your co-workers felt like you had an "after school job" and not a professional one. The ability for advancement could have been much better than what it was.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up on internal business to your employees.
