I have been working at Specs full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Having Sundays and three major holidays a year off by law. Discounts on product. Educational benefits. Can be a fun environment to work in, provided you have good co-workers.

Cons

Nepotism is rampant. Pay is pretty bad for responsibility level. Advancement is limited and not based on skill, experience, or longevity, for the most part.

Advice to Management

Try to keep your heads out of the sand. Don't promote people simply because they are related to someone else. LISTEN to your employees who work the stores. Maybe even provide an anonymous forum for suggestions/issues/etc.

    I worked at Specs full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Very little training and nice management. Possibility to earn more if you are willing to pitch store brands to customers.

    Cons

    Other co-workers are not very willing to help newbies or will sarcastically help. If you work at the front (cashier) you will be able to be very chatty. If you work by stocking or organizing, be prepared to say maybe five words an hour. Lastly, use simple logic when unsure of what to do, management and co-works would rather redo something over answering questions.

    Advice to Management

    Allow newbies to ask more questions, or else they will themselves turn bitter on the confused new comers.
