    Pros

    Employee discount, good benefits, flexible work schedules, fast paced, and ability to build good customer rapport.

    Cons

    Micro management from upper management, unrealistic goals for stores that were lower volume compared to $1+ million stores. Constant company changes, low pay with poorly structured commission scales.

    Advice to Management

    Stop micro managing stores and let store managers actually run their stores! While the company has a new CEO, and changes are coming they need to happen faster than the rate it is going now. And with the introduction of Sprint in the stores, stop trying to compete with them by selling your own products that no one wants to buy. The visual merchandising is a nightmare and no one seems to know what they are doing.. Other than that I loved working with my customers and have built friendships with some.

    Pros

    you're around a lot of technology so that helps with knowledge if you're planning on being a technician. Also it really helps with your customer service skills.

    Cons

    only cons i had were the inventory days. You have to stay after hours for a long period of time to scan EVERYTHING in the store.
