I worked at Currys PC World as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

Good prospects in an exciting industry.

Cons

Despite what they might say, they don't care about getting the customer want he/she wants. They care about tagging on as many extras as possible in order to meet target. Results in a lot of tactics at play among the staff. Manager is constantly over your shoulder about sales.

Advice to Management

Delegate some responsibility. It's a team effort, can't do it all by yourself. You have to work 12 hour shifts because if you don't, you don't trust anyone else to do the job. Don't be so cold and heartless. There's more to life than hitting targets.

    I have been working at Currys PC World part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Seemed like honest emloyer, "We pay a flat wage without comission, Your performance will be measured by your ability to sell and making sure the customer gets the right product.." The training opportunities sound great. And they allowed me to show i could sell prouducts as part of the interview.

    Cons

    Really not sure how honest they want me to be after all they obviously want me to make them money.

    Advice to Management

    bonuses based on sales would help motivate staff without making them chase comission.
