    Former Employee - Part Time Sales Advisor in Stevenage, England (UK)

    I worked at Maplin Electronics part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Offers + employee discount
    Staff incentive schemes
    The people! Some very kind people to work with, always doing their best to help out and make sure everything goes smoothly.
    A very open environment with things like Maplin Matters (weekly newsletter to update staff on the workings of the company) and staff meetings.

    Cons

    Maplin is quite an expensive place for some things (in particular, computer parts and any kind of flash storage). Trying to get sales on these things whilst having to fight back the urge to say that they could get the same thing for half the price online can be very difficult.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work, but try to be a bit more competitive on some things. Trying to justify clearly outrageous prices to customers is not a nice thing to have to do.
