I worked at Maplin Electronics

Pros

Start there and move on quickly. You'll learn all you need to know there in less than 3 months. If you're smart you'll start buying or selling similar goods on ebay using the experience from there of the product movers

Cons

Old school Management protecting themselves.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

There should be a management clearout soon in the bad economic climate. Politics and power is enjoyed by the middle management. I'd expect some closures in the coming recession as conformity is modus operandi. Adaptability is not there right now. Lose the excess. Trim the fat
