Its retail and the hours an be bad. Customers will be disrespectful and condescending. Limited opportunity unless you want to remain in retail.

Superstar sellers do not make good managers.

    Pros

    Leader in the electronics industry for in store purchases.
    Great in store leadership from GM on up to regional Management.

    Cons

    Now surviving on a weak pulse. On-line sales from Amazon are the reason for their eminant demise.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Go after Amazon agressively before it's too late. You need an discount warehouse to sell through on aged inventory with prices competitive to Amazon.
