Pros

If you want full time employment it's there for the taking, and benefits kick in very quickly. Management helps out a lot with sales and has tremendous floor presence. Customers were treated very well. Commission structure is nice. It's better than a lot of comparable retail environments.

Cons

Hours are entirely awful, especially in the middle of the summer. Most of the day is spent standing around waiting to have a customer to help (in other words - most of the day you do absolutely nothing, which means you aren't making any money). Way, way too much of your salary completely depends on PSP/Extended Warranty sales - make no mistake, if you choose to work here and you aren't very good at selling snake oil, er, PSP, you will be taking home near minimum wage.

Advice to Management

Slow down with your expansion, and keep to your older philosophies that worked and allowed you to get as big as you are. If you want to kill Sears, don't try to be like them.

    Pros

    I really enjoyed working there when I did. The company is great, well managed and treats employees fairly well. Compensation on all levels is above average and training is thorough. Customers can get irritated that you want to help and make a sale, but that is the business

    Cons

    Long, long hours. You cannot take any holidays on the holiday because of the absolute hysteria that is the season. Some of the upper management when i was there was ruthless. Person in question is no longer employed for that reason.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on the pace, do not buy into stocking movies and game, do not get ahead of yourself. You are doing well against Best Buy and stay in the niche of being experts in the field.
