Enjoyed coworkers, not so much the management.

Pros

I enjoy working with tools, so it was sort of a dream job to be around them all the time and know what's coming out.

Cons

The management at my location wasn't the best. After I moved to a new job they restructured, so I imagine it's a lot better now.

Advice to Management

Don't neglect hardware coverage!

    Pros

    The people I work with are, in general, relaxed, helpful and good with customers. Store management is easy to get along with and competent.

    Cons

    Too many corporate policies and rules stifle creativity, enthusiasm and store improvement. Plus, many things that should be left up to the individual stores (with oversite) are decided at the corporate level with unwelcome results.

    Advice to Management

    Give more leeway to the stores and floor employees to respond to the environment and to innovate retail practices. All your metrics (short-term thinking) pale in comparison to the power of motivated and savvy employees.


  2. Great place to work with out a degree

    Pros

    Pay for work performed, benefits are good (stock purchase plan 15% off, 401k matches 6% of contribution, off one weekend plus extra sunday a month, 40% of base bonus end of year depending on store sales, 2 weeks of vacation after 1 year 3 weeks after 5 years 4 weeks after 15 years

    Cons

    Bonus went from 60% to 40%, inventory bonus gone, health insurance is not very good and keeps geting worse, 4 weeks of vacations used to be after 10 years and is now 15 years. Most other retailers offer every other weekend off, and more vacation sooner

    Advice to Management

    I like most of the many changes except, taking away of inventory bonus, and sales bonus %
