    I worked at REX Stores full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Excellent Commission Pay Plan, good salesman can make $800 or better per week.

    Cons

    You better not want much of a life outside of work, every shift is open to close, usually 12 hour day 5 days a week.

    Advice to Management

    Lower hours per shift to a respectable amount 8 or 9!

    Pros

    It is great to work somewhere you can watch tv all day. You can make money if you work hard.

    Cons

    Boring. You make no money sometimes as it is commision based. Customers think it is like tv's lets make a deal.

    Advice to Management

    Quit treating your employees like they are beneath you and then you may get some more production out of them.

    Pros

    Decent Money, Store manager was fantastic to work for great guy.

    Cons

    Long hours, not recognized for doing a good job, always jumping down your throat for what you need to improve on even if you are doing great in 9 areas they have to flip you crap about the 1 you need to work on. Stores are closing all over the US. Job security is pitiful. Stores are understaffed. Its impossible to get vacation time, you cant call in sick because noone is available to cover. One guy quit while I was there and it was 2 months before I got another day off.

    Advice to Management

    Stop being such uptight doucebags.

    Pros

    Pay was very generous for the minimal amount of work required. If you like watching bits and pieces of every TV show ever made this is the place to work!

    Cons

    Very long hours especially during the holidays, but hey, that's retail. The smaller the store staff the better the pay but the fewer hands to work.

    Advice to Management

    Open the stores back up and listen to the front line employees more. Look at how the companies that are succeeding in the CE and Maj App business are doing it.
