    I worked at Circuit City (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great Job. Good commissions. Interesting technology always coming in. Good managers to work for. You are rewarded for the hard work you put in. You get great employee discounts on purchases at the store.

    Cons

    You have to be able to work long hours if you want to make good money. The more you work, the more money you make since it is a commissioned job. You have to work very long hours during the holiday season.

    Advice to Management

    Give employees more commissions for open box items. Work with the prices more on open or damaged items. Provide more training weekly. Provide more incentives to get more sales.

    I worked at Circuit City part-time

    Pros

    Really enjoyed my time at Circuit City. Great environment, and all of my superiors and other coworkers were great to work with.

    Cons

    The only con at this job was the fact that I lost it when the company liquidated all of their assets.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you have been doing. Treat all employees with respect, and you will see great work ethic in return.
