    Pros

    Guest to meet nice and different people over the phone, Good working hours, Great discount, Good learning experience about different technologies.

    Cons

    Since your working with over 30 people you will get a lot of younger people that still act like they are in high school. Make sure you make copy for request time off since management intends to lose them all the time . Just make friends with a few coworkers the bigger the group the more drama you will have.

    Advice to Management

    Have a better system for the customer service dept so that the sales team is not overwhelmed with the calls that customer service transfer for just because .

    The store itself was very outdated, and it doesn't seem like the manager wants to update or renovate the store a little.

    Pros

    - They work around your schedule,

    - They have good pay for a young person or someone who just wants something on the side,

    - Great Staff, Store Management & Supervisors are cool and understanding.

    Cons

    You stand all day(no chairs for anyone) & the systems they use are fairly old and are unnecessarily hard at times to use at first glance.

    Advice to Management

    To Corporate: Fix up your stores and care more about updating systems and methods if you want to keep up with stores like Apple, Bestbuy, Target, etc! And your website is hideous, really needs an upgrade.

    Pros

    A good place to flex your basic tech support muscles.
    Very good employee discount.
    Room to advance, what with the high turnover.
    Lots of hours around the holidays. All in one day, on occasion.

    Cons

    You've gotta be friends with your supers, or they won't give you tasks to complete. Or send you the shift schedule. Or tell you when you've been volunteered for extra days.
