    Pros

    Great job while I was in college, very flexible with class schedules and other obligations. Taught me a lot about sales and how big retail operates.

    Cons

    Overall it was a decent job. Micromanaging, focusing on meeting monthly quotas rather than helping people get what they need. Overselling is a common problem in any retailer though.

    Advice to Management

    Less micromanaging, more team goals, incentive based performance.

    good experience, pay, benefits, discount, really liked the people and friends I made at this job. management seemed to care about you and your future. Very good first job to gain experience and learn alot about technology

    Cons

    constant pressure from upper mgmt to bug customers to buy extras, stressful selling environment, fast paced, always on your feet. But overall a good experience that i would recommend to anyone who wants a challenge
