Great job to have as a student -- learn to interact with and sell to people, make $ on commissions.

I worked at Fido

Pros

Great people to work with -- everyone is young and gets along very well. We still keep in-touch.
Good training ground for standing up for yourself and not being a pushover when dealing with people.
Commissions make it worthwhile, especially when you're a student.
You learn to build your people and small-talk skills there.

Cons

Not a good full-time job (retail).
Little room for advancement beyond retail manager positions.
Gets very repetitive. There are only a certain # of transactions.
Some customers can be rude -- you need to learn to deal with these ones.
If you're in a smaller store, it can get little traffic. This can be boring and result in low pay of commissions.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep a good balance of fun/friendliness with staff and performance focus, always respecting your employees. Yannick Pilon is an excellent example of this. That way, we have fun, but still make good money in commissions. Everyone is then happy. And make sure to make people feel good for good performance.

    Pros

    its only good when you work part time

    Cons

    poor management, seems like they are there to play
    the team leaders don't even know how to use the tools themselves

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    they tell you to listen to your customer first and understand them before getting to the solution, but yet when we go ask them questions, they do everything to try to avoid it,
