Pros

Great chemistry with employees from top to bottom. Decent pay, but the discount is what gets most people, it will have all of your friends jealous. Great place to hone your sales skills, customer base is generally always looking to buy, and easily convincible due to the nature of major electronic retail. I worked in the Mobile department, which is one where you spend a longer duration with your customers, which I enjoy. Great flexibility.

Cons

Managers can over hype a quota, happens in every department which adds unneeded stress. HIgh sales expectations and quotas with no commission (team members do bonus based on store performance).

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen to employees more and let them express their own sales techniques.. don't always keep it as a cookie-cutter sales pitch. Promote from within more when applicable.

    Pros

    Typically there are good people to work with. The company values are good and the employee discount is a good incentive. Sometimes the people that are promoted are not really all that adept at the job they are promoted to.

    Cons

    The pay is not always stellar and the benefits have not been as great for health in recent years as previously. They had reduced the employee discount a good bit and reversed it to the better discount recently. I can see them reducing the discount again in the future as a cost cutting effort.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would suggest that they pay attention to turn over rate in a department as this indicates if there may be something wrong with the structure or the leadership.
