    I worked at Future Shop full-time

    Pros

    Some great managers. Opportunity to make a lot if you are working in the right location. Great benefits and commission percentages.

    Cons

    I worked in a few different stores and the experience varied a lot. Some of them were honest and the culture of the store reflected that. Others were slimy and no one did anything.

    Advice to Management

    Don't shut down the company! I definitely preferred futureshop to best buy. and know they're gone!
