Not bad...as long as you make your quota

I worked at Fry's Electronics

Pros

The coworkers are pretty great and the discounts can be pretty steep. Since commission is uncapped, you can make well over the minimum wage of your hours worked.

Cons

Commission only, so you could potentially work a full 8 hour shift and earn only a couple bucks if the floor is quiet. Plus, you don't get to pick your hours, so it's basically luck of the draw.

    Pros

    Mde great friends. Moved up really fast and was paid pretty well as a manager

    Cons

    No training whatsoever! Pretty much learn it all on your own and sell. If you fail you're fired!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Randy fry is an idiot. Instead of cutting the fat out of the corporate office. He's getting rid of his front line work force. Hey randy. Lose 2 districts and keep one. Doesn't matter which, district 1,2,or 3. But get rid of two of them. Do the math. You'll save millions. Do you really need 3 Todd Smiths or 3 John McGufins? Come on! Last quarter alone they lost 8 million. They are fighting to stay alive. They are cutting a bunch of positions. Good luck being around in the next 5 years.

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

    Pros

    Could make ok money for a retail job in sales. Almost anyone could get hired here.

    Cons

    Everything but mainly pay that goes down over time and not up. Company some how always feels like its going under (less pay, more responsibilities, less product to sell or takes a long time to come in), but its the place that's local like it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create a business plan that last longer than 2 weeks before you give up. Empower your employees. Have a system where people know when a position is open and could apply for it.
