    I have been working at Fry's Electronics part-time

    Pros

    Learn a lot about the latest tech, friendly staff, decent employee discount.

    Cons

    No employee appreciation, horrible hours, terrible pay, random change of work hours, weird 8.5 hr shifts with 1 hour lunch breaks, insufficient training, unfair commission policies. The one thing your salary depends on is how much warranty you can sell.

    Advice to Management

    Place is so damn outdated, looks like its stuck in the 80s. Too many refurbished products for sale. Try to be a decent human and start engaging with your associates instead of bossing them around.

    Pros

    Work/play with latest tech. Working with the public.

    Typical Big Box Retail hours. Any Retail company that is open on Thanksgiving Day is disrespectful to their staff.

    Advice to Management

    Let the website handle Thanksgiving Day.
