    I worked at Currys PC World part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    1. Working w/ great people (luckily, my managers were good)

    2. Training

    3. Product knowledge

    4. Great part time job for young people.

    5. If retail is your career, great experience.

    Cons

    1. The pay was embarrassing & biased. (If you didn't sell TVs or Laptops, forget getting a decent bonus.

    2. Bonus system foolish. (If the store doesnt do well, regardless of how well youre doing, forget decent bonus)

    3. Forget being noticed for being a great salesman.

    4. Progression is little to none.

    5. Greatly understaffed, so more responsibility & targets are placed on the staff but the pay stays the same. :/

    6. Its a huge numbers game & will eventually start eating away at your morals & conscience, if you have any.

    7. Slowly & quietly sucks away your joy & dreams.

    Advice to Management

    1. Acknowledge & Reward those that do well; not just with silly certificates but actual tangible things.

    2. Hire enough staff.

    3. Pay well then maybe you'll have people that are proud to work for you.

    I worked at Currys PC World part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I got to work with great people who I still talk to this day. Although a pressured environment the staff there always had time for a joke and they were great to me. Managers were fantastic, in times I needed them they were there and understanding to the reason I left offering other options making me feel valued.

    Cons

    Not on the staff itself but the company's view on KPIs. They wanted you to sell anything with anything at the end of the day and ensured this with ridiculous targets whether it be carphone referrals or 'Care Plan'.

    Advice to Management

    My management were great and I wish them all the best, keep doing what you do.
