    Pros

    Great benefits and pay, flexible hours. Provide good opportunity for experience.

    Cons

    Good management is a hit or miss, they stress on selling and hassling customers. You will actually be punished for not hassling customers almost to the point that they will want to walk out.

    Advice to Management

    Please be more considerate to your employees, I was a hard working geeksquad agent yet was greatly unappreciated. There were many other agents and coworkers that were just plain lazy yet received for recognition, how is that?? I understand that this is specific to my certain store, but it can be a lesson learned.
