Great starter job

Former Employee - Sales Operator

Pros

I worked in a wonderful store for three years and I loved it. We all became a family and hung out regularly outside of work. The discount is amazing. They have awesome requirements for part time employees.

Cons

Growth isn't really an option.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop trying to be involved in your employee's personal life.

    Pros

    None. Though it depends on who you work with. Being able to have a more customized schedule is okay, I suppose.

    Cons

    Always being yelled at by managers to sell more or to activate more credit card accounts, or being yelled at by customers in Geek Squad because they don't know how to read fine print.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit taking out your stress from upper-management on employees.
