I worked at Circuit City

Pros

I like to receive the free employee discounts on electronics, particularly the car stereo equipment, which I found to be outstanding.

Cons

The company was on the downslide for a longtime. It is a shame it went out of business. Good bye.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Not really much applicable, given it is now out of business. There may be some value left in the website.
