Pros

If you're looking for:
money as a student.
a retail career that promotes performance.
a great employee discount
flexible schedules
great benefits

Cons

Inconsistent performance management
Non commission sales
Pay grades for line level associates
Broken Communication - By the time the message gets to you, it's a totally different vision than what the CEO stated. Last minute notifications or no notifications at all. Hardly see anything planned out well on a store level. (I don't mean all stores...but alot of them)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't announce it when you're doing visits to stores. Do it randomly so you can get a true vision of how your businesses are running. That's the only way you're going to move from last min district visit preps until 1am to consistent non-negotiables.

    Pros

    You get a great opportunity to have an inside look at all the new technology before much of the public does. Not to mention the great working atmosphere.

    Cons

    A lot of training involved but unfortunately kind of a must in this particular market. It really depends on whether or not you are a part time or full time employee, if you are a part timer it's in my opinion more difficult to really gain as much knowledge about every product.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work! You guys do a pretty good job and keep things fun, I had a blast working there.
