      Pros

      Coworkers often work together well across departments, small team roster ensures some rapport with everyone (unless you don't get along), able to pick up knowledge about the tech you sell as you go, furniture sales are always easy. Advancement always feels within reach as well, as managers are often excited to have someone filling rolls such as Tech or Print/Marketing.

      Cons

      Management can be messy at times, harsh at others. Far too much focus on sales numbers for protection plans and the like, to the point where actual service suffers for it. Upper management does not seem cognizant of the reality of the stores they visit. Many of your customers will be elderly, ornery, and unwilling to actually listen to what you're telling them. Also, the reason why advancement into Tech and Print/Marketing is so easy is because customers treat the employees in those departments like idiots, constantly, so turnover can get a bit high there. Pay's rather poor too, like $9 starting (or possibly lower depending on your state's minimum wage)
