    Pros

    Fellow employees are great, store management good. Work scheduling seems fair and balanced. Convenient location in my case at least.

    Cons

    Pitiful pay, no full time hours, no benefits to speak of for part time. This can be and often is a very technical job, and that knowledge is not generally recognized and certainly not rewarded. Training is good, but could be much better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better pay first and foremost, you have computer and technology professionals working for a pittance due to the economy, they deserve more than minimum wage. Better training, and allow access to training, corporate, and scheduling information via remote access (from home). And how about at least a minimum commission on big ticket items, service contracts and add-ons are all fine and good, but we have to sell the base item first, so a little acknowledgement there would be great, especially if the customer doesn't want or need or can't afford the extras!

    Pros

    Closed on X-mass. That is about it. I don't have anymore pros working for this employer just trying to make 20 words for this.

    Cons

    management promotes friends not the people that been there for a while. Management are lazy they will sit in the office and eat or play on there phones even run a home business from there phone. The only time they do anything is when the DM is in and then watch out b\c everyone runs around like they are crazy. And then all six managers tell you what to do over the radio in your ear like 100X a day like you don't know. And they cut hours all the time and hire more people but they will have all the managers there at once. And won't give full time even if you been there for 3 years.
    And watch out when a Corporate person comes in for a visit, they will have you on your hands and knees scrubbing everything down. And not to mention the crazy hours you work like if you are schedule from 4 to 10 you don't get to leave at 10 no you stay and finish all the stuff that was not done earlier that day, and then when you think your done management will start finding other things to do. It's a horrible place to work. They start you out at minimum wage and tell you, you that they bonus all the time that is a lie they hardly bonus and the raises you get are like 10 cents. And if you sell a PPP And you get paid for it and then the customer returns it they take it back out of your check.And Customers don't respect you. The heath benefits sucks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attentions to who is really doing the work, and stop hiring your friends and then promoting them. Give full time to people who deserve it.
