I worked at Flextronics full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

good pay, about all I have to say

Cons

no job security, they (flex) are willing to hire less qualified people and pay them less, than to keep seasoned professionals that have earned their pay.

Advice to Management

keep employees that have proven themselves over the years, instead of hiring new people for less with less experience.

    I worked at Flextronics full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Sometimes interacting with customers was nice.
    When it was busy, time seemed to fly by.
    Learning about all the new phones was interesting, somewhat.

    Cons

    Management expects you to sell tons of accessories even when there are no customers. If I saw 10 customers that day, management would come up to me and ask "why didn't you hit your target of 10 sold accessories?" They would criticize you and pressure you even when it would be impossible to hit their targets.

    Advice to Management

    Part of my job might have been to sell accessories, but my primary job was to help customers get their phones replaced. When there's a line a dozen people long, do you really want me to pester a person for 5 minutes selling them accessories, and make the customers more dissatisfied? When I did that (at times), you were angry because the customers were getting upset!

    Bottom line: Try to look at the situation and figure out what your priorities are and what you really expect from your employees. Have realistic expectations.
