    Pros

    Fun environment & Easy work

    Cons

    The up-sells are impossible not because they great deal or great benefits. Their are a lot of loop holes and customer agreeing to things they normal wouldn't if they knew the truth. The christmas holiday is insane you will work more hours and have turns of shipment.

    Advice to Management

    De prepared to up-sell customer rocks and call it diamonds.

    Pros

    flexibility, interesting co-workers most are located in a mall which allows for an easy commute, good job for someone in high school. Holiday season can be a lot of fun

    Cons

    strange customer base, dying industry, poorly managed by senior levels. promotions that never seemed to make sense for advertising purposes

    Advice to Management

    change your plan! recognize the talent you have and utilize it by supporting stores and providing better training. The product has become obsolete and changes must be made to keep the business viable

    I worked at f.y.e. part-time

    Pros

    I started working at FYE as a seasonal employee but was then offered regular season work. I'm so glad I got the opportunity to work there I loved my entire store and we always had fun. It was a great job!

    Cons

    Honestly don't really have any except watch for creeps! There are the fair share of weird people that come into the store but it's never scary just odd, but at least you go home with a funny story at the end of the day!

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing. Maybe raise your hourly pay. Other than that I love FYE and the company


  8. Good People, Okay Culture

    I worked at f.y.e. part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The people that I worked with were great and the environment was great as well - shifts usually went by pretty fast.

    Cons

    While my co-workers were great, and the management was easy to get a long with, they were not incredibly flexible with requested time off.

    Advice to Management

    Continue the open relationship you have with your staff, but try to be more understanding with necessary time off and scheduling conflicts.

    I worked at f.y.e. part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    It's a really great part time gig if you are into music and movies and enjoy working around people. The atmosphere is pretty good, some things could be better, but it's a good part time job.

    Cons

    They can't afford to work people. Some places try and work part time people too much, F.Y.E. is not one of them.

    Advice to Management

    Need to find a way to stay alive in this digital age, unfortunately people just aren't buying CD's and physical movies anymore.

    I worked at f.y.e. part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    F.Y.E is a great company to work at. They offer good discounts and are at the least polite to all employees even if your not friends.

    Cons

    It's a smaller store so there is less workers even if it seems to be more work. And there's a movie theater near by so people go there instead.

    Advice to Management

    Just keep doing what your doing because this is a great company and was an interesting experience.
