Pros

Selling technology with the support of constant elearnings is more stimulating than other entry level/minimum wage jobs. If you have good selling skills and leadership you may be able to grab a promotion and move up within the company--you'll just have to wait for your raise.

Cons

There are slightly unrealistic bonus goals now that CBG bonuses off of notional margin rather than revenue; so if you like bonuses, get a position in HBG selling homesyncs and 4K TVs.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Annual reviews for raises ought to change; it should be a merit/selling history based rating system.

    Pros

    Pay starts well, and the training and experience is definitely worth something. A good place to begin your career in electronics.

    Cons

    Quality of job is determined by your immediate manager and general manager. While some stores have good management that can lead to promotions, pay raises etc. many stores have poor management and equity is very unfair. I get paid less than the new hires I train, which is not right.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop trying to make it look like you have a good evoice result and actually take action to make evoice survey results positive. Furthermore, sell solutions to customers opposed to making us focus on numbers and sales all day!
