Pros

The biggest pro is definitely the overall environment and the people that work there. There were good relationships built among employees. Not only did I notice this at our store, but others as well when I attended combined store christmas parties. I did find in my time at Future Shop that despite some issues they were always open to feedback and had a genuine desire to improve morale. Every six months a survey is held that includes a series of questions about your satisfaction with the company and overall atmosphere within the store. Results are taken into consideration and action plans are taken in attempts to improve the store. There is also an "FS Connexions team" that helps to improve store morale by planning events for employees to attend.

Cons

Manager turnover would be the biggest con. Managers are always getting transferred to different stores, because of this you would constantly have to adapt to different styles of management. Another con would have to be a lack of recognition. I worked there for seven and a half years and this was a common issue. They would tend to notice the negative things and be quick to point those out. They are also very sales oriented, often allowing there pursuit for sales to overshadow other issues in the business.

    Pros

    Great place to work. Great team, great benefits, great compensation.

    Cons

    The Service Plans are a bit of a hassle to sell sometimes. I will be the first to say that there are only a select few people out there that would benefit from them. But nonetheless, to be successful you MUST sell them to everyone.

    Advice to Management

    Review the service plans. Less scam, more value.
