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

    Control your own income through your actions and abilities
    Hands on customer service
    Experience running a business from the small details to the big ones
    Rewards for doing a great job

    Cons

    Long hours
    Promised time off or bonuses that you won't get
    Incentives that are not reachable
    Micro-Management
    Dated product line
    Prices too high for the market

    Advice to Management

    The company was well run when DMs used oversight not Micro-Management techniques. If a GM cannot perform the required duties then replace them with someone who is able. Poor training and poor execution of sales plans and visual merc plans have left customers confused and angry. And the product selection is very dated and overpriced.
