Pros

-They pay above minimum wage
-PLENTY of hours during holiday season
-Very respectful of school hours, other jobs, and just general life.
-Great treatment from company
-Plenty of opportunities to get extra hours (volunteer for midnight openings!)
-Store I worked had lots of drawings for cash or lunch or rewards for selling a certain amount or signing up a certain number of credit cards.
-Lunches you get paid to go to.
-They want you to get paid for coming in and filling out paper work. Awesome!
-ETK

Cons

-Management expects you to follow customers around and bother them to buy something. I've heard a few customer complaints on this.
-Most of the people in the computer section were lazy towards their jobs.

Advice to Management

Be a little more polite to customers and respect their personal spaces.
Watch every department for people who aren't willing to work. There are plenty of people out there who would gladly do the job instead.

  1. Can be a good company - but its all about cutting costs and piling more work on workers

    Pros

    Generally the company culture is good - people really care about doing the right thing.

    Cons

    As with most companies - you are very important until they want to cut costs - then you aren't so important anymore. Focus is on too many things which makes the core business suffer.

    Advice to Management

    Cut the politics - if you actually listen to people vs. just senior management you might hear some interesting things.

    Pros

    There really wasn't any pros. They hire people with no experience, but are picky for no specific reason. Discriminates in both employment and treatment of current employees.

    Cons

    No opportunity for advancement, horrible treatment of employees, highly unethical.
