I have been working at CompUSA part-time (More than a year)

Pros

You can make a good commision, see all the cool new products, and meet some great customers

Cons

Slow days will lead to low paychecks, highly pressured to sell low quality attachments, ever changing managers

Advice to Management

Either pay the supervisors more or higher more because every one I had didnt last more than a couple months. They were making less then the sales guys per hour because they didnt get paid too big of a salary and they put in 65+ hours per week. Consistent management would have made the store more successful IMO

    Pros

    Great Opportunity to take leadership roles, and to make local decisions. Local control is almost absolute, you can be the king of your own little island.

    Cons

    No opportunity to advance past the local level. Within 6months you have learned everything you can, and it's time to move forward, however no matter the profit or level of performance this is no direct chain to move forward.

    Advice to Management

    Unfortunately this business has dried up and closed it's doors. It wasn't really a shocker, when you allow the local store to be an island upon itself you can never really succeed.


  2. "Typical corporate work environment"

    Pros

    Nice people to work with, training was pretty good, understanding if you needed to take time off, clean environment to work in

    Cons

    Bad scheduling, management did not care enough about employees, causing employees to not care about their work making a spiral which eventually lead to the downfall of COMPUSA.

    Advice to Management

    Well here is my advice. You only cared about money and not how you treated employees. You need to adapt to the times, and were to stubborn to do so. It is not a surprise CompUSA shut down.
