    Don't fall for the employee discount.

    Pros

    -Work with cool electronics -Awesome vendor accommodations -Corporate systems are reliable

    Cons

    -Management is never on the same page as each other -Expected to contact customers in your area multiple times like you're a used car salesman -Workplace drama gets out of control, especially in a larger store with more employees -Employee discount is not what you think it is. IRS states that a discount larger than 20% granted by a corporation has to be reported as taxable income. Example: If you buy a set of speakers for 600 dollars with the employee discount, and list price is 1200 dollars, that is a 50 percent discount. So, the 600 dollars you saved at the time of sale, is later reported on your paycheck on the pay period you purchased the speakers as "Merchandise Rcvd". You are taxed for 600 dollars made. There have been employees in the store that have saved money for large purchases, made the purchase, and then the following check they receive is only 10 dollars, because most of their check has been taxed. Of course, they don't mention this to you at NEI (New Employee Induction) when they first hire you.

    Pros

    Great experience learning how to repair different pieces of technology. These skills are transferrable to a career in IT or elswhere. Nice environment when everybody works together.

    Cons

    No pay incentives for added responsibilities (Samsung Repair, Apple Repair) these bring many headaches due to lack of training and execution and employees can feel overlooked.
