Pros

Meet new people on a daily basis.
Fun place to work, especially in the Games Department.

Cons

Need to sell their Store credit cards, otherwise likely chance of termination.
Must sell Fry's card on a consistent basis regardless of being in a state of recession.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Lessen the severity of needing to sell Fry's card, customers do get asked, but almost 95% of them either already have a Fry's card or do not want to open an account. But being forced to bug the customer into getting one will just upset them and most likely not return for future business.

    Pros

    -Good job for those with little to no experience.
    -Employee discount on occasion can be pretty good.
    -If you want to transfer locations or departments, the company will hire within first.

    Cons

    -Poor, often disorganized, upper management,
    -Sales positions are often commission only, when paired with too many salesmen on the floor means little commission and cutthroat tactics to even earn minimum wage.

    Pros

    It really is a decent place to get experience in the retail industry. It's tough at first but it always pays off if you put your work in.

    Cons

    Getting started without experience means you get in at a lower rate then your peers. It takes a really long time to move up within the company.
