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

    Employee discount is awesome on certain items
    Flexible with school hours.
    Coworkers and lower management are pretty cool once you break the cliques.
    can make decent money as a cashier during the holiday season.

    Cons

    Not nearly enough time to get everything done.
    As a cashier, you will have to clean bathrooms and take out trash in dress clothes.
    outdated POS machines.
    poor compensation after the holidays
    most equipment in the store is broke
    no raises. ever.

    Advice to Management

    Don't set unreasonable expectations for the guys on the bottom. Perhaps before firing everyone who makes the business run, you should look to cut some of your own bloated paychecks. Home Office is almost unnecessary, the bureaucracy is obscene.

    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 Management

    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.
