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 Management

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

    Exciting environment especially if you love electronics and entertainment. Working in teams helps you build interperonal skills. Benefits are awesome and there's room to grow.

    Cons

    It's retail so all holidays are crazy! After november 15 don't expect to get any days off work...especially black friday! Very competitive when it comes to promotions!


  2. It was a cool part time job where I got to work with great people.

    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 Management

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