    I worked at Microsoft full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Both in store management, and coworkers were great. The benefits were good, and the pay WHEN I STARTED was great. (no longer the case for new hires)

    Cons

    Pay took a dive, our customer first people-centric culture went out the door, the people upstairs are constantly changing the policies and customers pay the price, HR is NOT YOUR FRIEND, this company is very click-ish when you get to the corporate side or even just upper in store management you will see it. If someone simply doesn't like you, you'll get crucified. If you are sent to a specialty store, god bless you, that's where I was and prepare to do twice the work as the full line stores, and get none of the respect. Everyone from full line stores (kids working 20 hours a week and don't have a clue about windows) will look down at you like the bottom of the barrel.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean house on management and if you want good sales results, stop hiring stupid unenthusiastic kids. Go to pioneer place Portland Oregon and see the results you get with that.
