    I worked at Fry's Electronics

    Pros

    good job for college students who just need money to pay for tuition. not much else though.

    Cons

    like the title says, people are picked from the street. a lot of people who do not know what they are doing.

    I worked at Fry's Electronics full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    - Really flexible schedules if you can get on your manager and supervisor's good sides
    - If you work your ass off you can make a good amount of money
    - They will hire ANYONE that can breathe so if you need a quick hire they're on point
    - Good for well spirited people that can persuade customers.

    Cons

    - TERRIBLE place to work if you are a shy or reserved person
    - They will automatically knock you up to a sales position if you've been a merchandiser for too long so that the supervisors and managers can make more money.
    - Upper management is hard to deal with
    - Owners walk into the store and are praised like gods, it's terrible.
    - Sales are commission only so if you fall behind, you owe fry's for the next week.
    - If you fall too behind in your sales they fire you.
    - Very cut throat in certain departments, Friends one second, enemies the next. Everyone only really cares about the money they make.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Grow a heart.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
