    I have been working at Flextronics full-time

    Pros

    Provide benefits, tuition reimbursement, full-time hours and bonuses based on store performance.

    Cons

    No developmental growth even though thats what they use to promote the positions. Lack of communication from top to bottom even though grievances are shared from bottom to top they say they listen but they don't. Even with customers there is lack of communication so when they re given wrong info from the corporate store they end up at the DSC screaming demanding something that we don't even have.

    Low job security! They don't think twice about letting you go, even if you're doing a great job and are getting good reviews. In one word, heartless. Security is a nightmare to deal with!
