I have been working at Future Shop part-time (Less than a year)

Pros

- I had a great manager and a really fun department, it was a part time job so my expectations might have been different

Advice to Management

- Focus on the management team, they will make or break a product experts experiences

    I worked at Future Shop full-time

    Pros

    Great employee development programs, fast paced environment

    Cons

    Alot of reactive decision making, they need to be more structured and pro active in their approach to programs etc.

    Advice to Management

    I think FS is on the right track, but they need to focus not only on developing new talent but in helping long term employees become better leaders as well.

    I worked at Future Shop full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    -Exposure to the oublic
    -High product learning curve
    -Good working atmosphere

    Cons

    -High sales pressure by superiors
    -Pressure to sell products according to their commission and not the customer's needs

    Advice to Management

    Normalize commission (certain % or another fixed system), so that sales associates really offer the best products and not the one that gives them the most that day. The pressure to sell the "warranty" also makes it very uncomfortable, it is hard to sell something when most associates wouldn't even buy it.
