    I worked at CPR Cellphone Repair part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great opportunity to learn how to fix electronics, depending on the level of repairs offered by each shop. My shop did some higher level repairs than your average repair shop so I was introduced to a decent amount of soldering. Great life skill to have.

    Cons

    Pay sucks for the level of technical work you're doing. Worked well as a job while in college. Owners of the Sacramento area CPR franchises do not know how to run a business. They constantly belittle employees and allow their incompetent children to be managers which causes lots of issues.

    Pros

    very little busy work. easy to use pos computer system. All ordering done on ebay

    Cons

    controlled by cpr corporate and the owners have very little control over anything involving the creative direction or logistics of the business.

    Advice to Management

    loosen the reigns on creative control so each market can be approached differently because all markets are different. what works in one market doesn't always work in another
