    I worked at Circuit City full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    If you like the technologies related to consumer electronics, this can be a fun place to work for. Decent hourly pay for a retail job. Opportunities for career advancement if you work hard.

    Cons

    The morale was low due to micromanagement and a lack of appreciation from the company. Upper management team has either no understanding or no concern about how their decisions may affect the store employees and customer experience. Outdated inventory system made it hard to accurately track the inventory and service units, and that often led to poor customer service. Too much pressure on selling their overpriced extended warranty plan and sales associates sometimes avoided closing the ticket when customers were not interested in the warranty plan. Circuit City repeatedly laid off highest paid store employees, who were often the backbones of the day-to-day business in the store level. By axing the most hard-working and loyal employees, they demoralized the rest -- who wants to work extra hard so they can get axed, uh?
