    I worked at Fry's Electronics part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great coworkers, pay isn't steady but can be decent. A bit of freedom while working.

    Cons

    Poorly managed. Entirely commission based when a majority of products do not earn any commission. Largely luck based on which customers you get. I felt like I was conning people with the awful warranty.

    Advice to Management

    Make commission steady across a majority of the items.

    Pros

    Everyone gets along very well. One week you will make decent money but the next week you will not make so much. It is a hit or miss.

    Cons

    Straight commission. Very little room for growth. Been working for more than 4 years now. Can not expect much working in retail.

    Advice to Management

    Develop a way where sales associates could make hourly plus commission. Update your website, computers, printers, etc. Have an app where you can easily browse through products and order items online. It will make it more easier for the consumer. Stop with the quotes its a waste of paper. Items should be automatically scanned under the associates name so they can get credit for it.
