    I worked at B&H Photo Video full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Lots of Jewish Holidays off
    Compensation higher than most similar jobs within the industry
    Decent health/dental benefits

    Cons

    Have you ever wanted a job where you felt like a child? One where you have to let management know of your bathroom breaks and that you're constantly trained that the customers and management is always right and to treat them with respect while your opinions are completely disregarded. How about a position where it's far better to call out sick than to clock in at 9:01 as that makes you a delinquent worthy of disciplinary action? Then I have an opportunity for you! But wait there's more! You'll get the chance to see the glass ceiling up close as the chance of career advancement is near impossible, unless of course you have the right religious affiliation. Do you like the idea of fighting with management to be able to use your vacation days when you want them or to simply buy something in the store on your day off? Those are journeys you won't soon forget. Just take their advice and use the employee purchase website (only available on work computers) and have the purchase shipped to your home. Not home to recieve the package because you're at work? Should have thought of that before making a purchase. With this position you'll also get an abundance of wonderlust along with your fellow employees. Wonder on how long and hard you have to work to gain your freedom by leaving the company. Working on phone sales rather than in the store? Well make sure you don't attach personal items to your cubicle walls or use your personal phone for any purpose between sales calls as they are watching your every move. Don't worry, you'll get all of this even if you're able to get a position elsewhere in the company, no matter where you are you'll get this wonderful sense that you are nothing but your employee number. But don't forget, you're lucky to have a job in this economy so just put a smile on your face (start using substances if that gets you through the week) and bear it as you now get to say you work for the worlds largest and best photography store.

    Advice to Management

    Maybe instead of focusing so intently on any little negative thing about an employee you should be praising the accomplishments and positive feedback (just as much or more than the negatives). You should listen and respect your employees and be willing to nurture their abilities and encourage job growth. Stop micro-managing and learn to run a business that's full of people who are happy to come to work.
