Pros

Varied customers with interesting questions. You will learn about pretty much everything from GPS, components, music, car, computers, cables and other stuff. Management varies but usually is pretty laid back. If you do your job you will get promoted.

Cons

They pay £6/h and unless you progress to the management level you can't really expect anything better.

Advice to Management

Raise the basic salary and cut down on staff turnover

    Pros

    The only high street store to get a range of products, so your microwave lightbulb is dead or you need a diode to fix your equipment, sure it is more expensive to have these in a store rather than via a website but i can get the stuff now

    Cons

    no problems with the business, sometimes stock is a bit low but that is often because with so many products people don't buy many of any individual one

    Advice to Management

    keep going


  2. Hard work, may even be worth it!

    Pros

    The managers are fair and easy going, no unnecessary politics. Good staff atmosphere, and a great chance to learn about a wide range of areas (disco equipment, cctv, pc components and a lot of other bits and bobs). Good staff morale, even if they can be a bit stressed

    Cons

    Very very busy, To the degree that customers can just leave without getting what they want. The website is atrocious, and stock control is not the best. Staff training doesn't seem to be planned at all. sales targets are drilled into you, but i suppose that's no different to any other store.

    Advice to Management

    Sort out the website and the stock
