    I have been working at Future Shop part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Seasonality and consumer buying patterns can lead to good months making over $4,500/month. Fairly easy job for the most part.

    Cons

    Sales associates are bottom feeders to the organization, and for the most part, there is a lot of micro-managing on the floor. Low autonomy. Not enough monthly profit sharing in regards to sales targets. Recently change commission structure

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Future Shop (New York, NY) in March 2014.

    Interview

    It was interesting, they had a lot of food to give out. The questions were okay and the selection process long. I got to meet fellow hopefuls as well as connect and network. It was a valuable experience for me although I didn't get an offer. Equal opportunity employer. Nice building, friendly staff. It was exciting as it was suspense filled.
