Pros

During the christmas holidays it was great because everyone was buying cell phones, which led to higher spiff. Most of the staff were young and friendly, except for a few. My manager was pretty laid back and didn't care if we used our cell phone while the store was slow. I am also a college student so my manager definitely tried to work with my school schedule.

Cons

Due to the fact that I am a twenty year old girl a good percentage of customers didn't think I was as knowledgeable as my male employees. Even though I had been working there longer then most of them. Also the training was not adequate at all. It mostly focused on cell phones with hardly any training on more technical stuff such as soldering and connectors.

    Pros

    None the company is awful

    Cons

    Manager salary is grossly low. Managers are not paid on experience but volume store you are in. The company bonuses are a joke.

    Advice to Management

    Start from scratch. Your turnover is hugh for a reason.
