Pros

It was great getting to work with and learn about all the latest technology especially being a tech enthusiast,the discount was really nice too.

Cons

management at times cared too much about sales and not enough about employee experience, holiday work schedule was very demanding especially as we began opening earlier and earlier for black Friday and Thanksgiving

Advice to Management

Focus more on employee and consumer experience happy employees make great workers, and an amzing customer experience makes for loyal customers.

    Pros

    Lots of innovation and valuable sales experience for entry level employees. Lots of challenges for young supervisors, providing plenty of opportunity for development. Great employee discount!

    Cons

    Very frequent changes in culture and management. Managers are often under-educated and demand results without providing any meaningful input on how to accomplish those results. Often, intra-store competitions have a negative impact on teamwork.

    Advice to Management

    Identify opportunities, develop a simple plan to exploit them and stick with it.


  2. Perfect for a high school student.

    Pros

    Great place to work, but only because I had really nice managers.
    Customers were usually great.

    Cons

    I spent a large portion of my pay check on stuff I really didn't need.
    Managers tend to micromanage a lot. They're following company protocols, but its pretty annoying.
    Really stupid meets at 6 AM on weekends every quarter.
