    Pros

    The company gives good job security, and good experience and it’s the place to earn some experience before heading out to somewhere better.

    Cons

    The working culture feels old school and the way they run things is very unmodern. People are stuck in positions for years and become stagnate. The vibe feels very sluggish and makes you not want to work.

    I have been working at Fry's Electronics part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    -Good environment
    -Good discount
    - Good location

    Cons

    -Low pay
    -dated and often glitched systems
    -Rather unflexible scheduling at times

    Advice to Management

    The systems need to be updated. The price changing and product updates are absurd with as much as a 40% increase between days.
    The buyers keep bringing in random products to try and make a quick $. It's rather ridiculous.

    Non-Competitive Pay

    Do not care about their customers or employees
    Need direction from corporate from people who actually have recently worked in the store.

    Advice to Management

    In-Store management was always great
    Corporate tier management seemed a little lost when it came to in-store opportunities

    Pros

    I met a lot of cool people working here, and some are now my really good friends.

    Cons

    This company will end up like circuit city, they already are having major cutbacks. It's a job for a paycheck, it's not a career, or a business that will last.

    Advice to Management

    Start looking around for better opportunitys, and prepare to be laid-off in the future.

    Pros

    The cafe made it convienent for lunch breaks.

    Cons

    Anything can change at any time; pay, commission structure and now how you can use your discount. Job never felt secure because they can get rid of positions/departments whenever and either drop a managers $13-$15 pay to minimum wage or commission only. Cashiers are mostly paid by commission and they make then clean the restrooms. The cashiers had NEVER been told their job consist in janitorial duties during the interviews or trainings only when it was time for them to pick up the toilet brush during their first day of work.

    Advice to Management

    Value your employees, add a housekeeper to the team to do just that instead of swindling your cashiers that come to work presentable to scrub your toilets half the day.
