Pros

Nice Discount, Decent Starting Wage. Don't expect miracles, because this is a retail job. But it can be what you make of it. Be respectful of the customers, sell them only what they need. You'll be ac

Cons

Holiday Season can wear you down.

Advice to Management

Some younger associates need serious development in how to talk to customers. They seem to talk to their cusotmers the way they talk to their friends, and some customers clearly find this off-putting.

    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 Management

    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.
