    I worked at Circuit City full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Learning how to sell “the cheese” (aka extended service plans). Good coworkers. Getting to play with the latest and greatest consumer tech.

    Cons

    Got pretty bad when they got rid of commissions.. They went from good to out of business.

    Advice to Management

    If they matched Amazon prices and still sold ESP, they could probably have survived. CDs was not a long term solution.
