Pros

Supervisors and direct managers are usually great people and care about the employees. Get to work with very cool products and that employee discount is pretty nice too. My supervisor is very flexible with my hours and always asks me to look at his rough draft schedule before he posts it to make sure it works for me. They have always been supportive of any sort of training I wanted to do and are also being very supportive now as I am trying to transfer stores since I am moving. They also reward on performance which is awesome. I am young to work there (19) but I work hard and because of that my management relies on my selling skills and and they treat me as an experienced salesman. My general manager goes out of his way every day to ask every employee how they are doing that day and if there's anything they need. I understand this isn't a company wide view but at my store, things are quite nice.

Cons

Customers..... you have good ones, and you have REALLY REALLY bad ones. You can also say goodbye to your holidays cause you'll spend the majority of them in the big blue box. I worked 20 hours on black friday.... that shouldn't even be legal. Poor product knowledge training, they mainly focus on selling skills.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Better training on product knowledge and more rewarding pay. I think I should make a little more than $9 an hour when I sell thousands of dollars of product every single day.
