    Actually Feels Like Family

    Pros

    Despite being a publicly traded company, I actually felt valued as a team member and not just "a number in the system". Management was super flexible in letting me have my other full time job and letting me pick my hours. Employee discount is OBSURD and incredible compared to any other retail company (talking about hundreds of dollars off expensive products). In situations with rude and aggressive customers, my team leaders would always stand up for me and have my back. Even though I was only interested in part-time, they encouraged me to work more and move up in the company.

    Cons

    Layoffs for during COVID, didn't give notice or a heads up that they didn't even let me go.

    The working hours are very inconsistent, computer selection is limited, experience determines how often you work, over the phone help leaves something to be desired, and Geek Squad is dishonest.

    Computer Sales

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Discounts on in store products.

    Cons

    They only care about your sales (by dollar amount), instead of caring about how much you help customers. Sometimes customers are just looking and laptops and need help learning about the latest models/features but don't plan on buying any time soon, which is why most employees won't spend the time to help employees that are looking to buy anything on the lower price range.
