    Pros

    Store carries nice electronics and appliances brands if you can afford to work there long enough to qualify for employee discounts (at landed cost). Other hourly staff are mostly good people, but the most popular topic of conversation is how crappy and crooked the company seems to be.

    Cons

    No real concern for customers or employees; customers are just money sources to be squeezed for every single cent, and employees are the leeches to get it out of them. That's not unusual in a competitive business sales atmosphere, but sales staff are made to feel that every single potential customer should be instantly and constantly hard-sold, and if that customer does not buy (and buy a LOT including expensive service plans), you are not trying hard enough...You're told in the interview and training processes that you will make $16-$18 per hour on the sales floor if you are just average, much more if you are especially good. So how is it that out of eight original appliance sales associates, maybe one (and possibly none) of us made even $7.50 per hour over the course of Football Season Kickoff, Grand Opening, and Columbus Day sales (about 6 weeks)? Needless to say, people quit as soon as they could find better employment, but even then with the appliance sales crew down to three associates, we still barely made enough to cover the $7.50 "draw" amount, not to mention that $1000 or more of any amount above that will go back to the company due to the lack of business in the aforementioned sales. Maybe it was poor market research here, or maybe the company is just overall poor.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be honest in the hiring process; don't set unreasonable expectations.
    Be supportive in the day-to-day operations; hourly employees will make mistakes when no one takes the time to properly train them.
