Pros

Easy enough job. Anyone can do most of the jobs they have with no experience. Computer software and repair is on the up and up. Services are easy to sell.

Cons

Very very slow most of the time. In Texas they have already shut down 3 stores in 2 years with another 2 in the next year or so. Only busy time is back to school and maybe christmas. Since everyone is going paperless even that portion of the business is dropping.

Advice to Management

Get out of Computer Sales. To much money keeping Inventory up. Most customers want to touch and feel but then buy online almost everytime. Except for back to school customers that need it now. rest of the time inventory you know is going to go to clearance pricing.

    Pros

    There is a 20 word minimum? Let's see... None, none, none. Nope, still can't think of anything good.

    Cons

    Terrible hours, mediocre pay, horrible management on store and corporate levels, constantly driving numbers in your face, impatient customers, and an uncanny ability to teach their sales associates and consultants to annoy everyone that walks through the door.

    Advice to Management

    Incentives go a long way for part-timers, and full-timers if you want to keep someone working for the company. Start with something better than a 10 cent raise every year.

    Pros

    There are no pros for this company.

    Cons

    Only people without skills get to move up.
    Does not take care of long term employees.

    Advice to Management

    If you have someone busting their butt, let them know they are doing a good job instead of telling them that they could do better. You get more flies with honey. Respect you employees.
