    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Microsoft part-time

    Pros

    The culture of Microsoft is among the best to work for. Their mentality of helping customers is that they don't want them to just come in and buy. They want them to have FUN, be ENGAGED, and have a great experience in order to achieve more. I bet there are not many places you can name that offer personal training sessions, out of box experiences when you buy a device, gaming tournaments, community events and so much more. Uniform honestly looks fresh compared to other companies and the experience with customers is unlike any other retailer.

    Cons

    There really aren't anyway. If you have open availability the only thing is you'll be working a 9 hour shift with 1 hour break. It's a lot of standing so make sure your shoes SUPPORT you.

    Advice to Management

    LOCK. CERTAIN. PRODUCTS. I love the mentality of devices not being locked, but people steal. a lot. Please change this because it can be hard to watch so many customers when the store is very busy. OR at least put sensors in the front of the store.

    I worked at Microsoft part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    It looks good on your resume.

    Cons

    Too much note taking and not enough doing. SVA's should focus more on solving the problem rather than taking notes.

    Advice to Management

    At the end of the day, all you really care about is sales. So why not let us know from the start that we are salesmen first and technicians second.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Microsoft full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Co-workers only care about there free time never want to help the customer. Even worse no one truly understands computers here more than my 4 year old daughter. Some of workers are useful at telling me how to solve issues temporarily but never anything innovative or sincere. Leaving as soon as something better comes along.

    Cons

    No higher cause here just boring job.

    Advice to Management

    Rework this company from the ground
