    Pros

    Discounts on computer parts, tools, and other equipment was descent. Insight into new technologies making their way to the market place.

    Cons

    Scheduling was a joke. Management was horrible. I was what is referred to as a team lead. My job was to micromanage between management and lower level associates, while making the same pay as lower lever associates, having more responsibility, and getting yelled at for their mistakes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    STOP with the micromanaging. Stop treating your employees like their easily replaceable. Start treating people with respect instead of like theyre children.

    Pros

    Somewhat Flexible hours, good benefits, management is not overbearing. Really not much more good about it beyond that. Oh, the way they scale the absent/vacation time is OK.

    Cons

    Working 7am - 10am before the store is open and 9pm - 11pm for $4.00 really hurts your paycheck as you make no commission during this time, also add responsibilities such as merchandising an aisle by yourself during commission hours taps on more lost wages due to lost sales. If you work in the PC department you have to keep your numbers high otherwise they boot you out of the department. Overall if your looking to make money, you won't find much here without driving yourself crazy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change the pay scale, notice your employees for more then just good salesmen ship.
