Overall,it's not a bad place to work; you just have to have patience and be able to be an engineer for customers.

ProsYou learn various tricks on how to do different projects from customers, as well as learn about different tools.

ConsThere's too much push on selling the warranties. Also, maintaining 1/3 of the store is not an easy task, while also having to manage customers; answer phone calls; and assist cashiers during discrepancies. The computers associates use are also slower than a speeding snail.

Advice to Senior ManagementDon't be too pushy with the warranties. Also, fix the computers' speed; they are a hindrance to sales.
