Sales associate (Former Employee), Schaumburg, ILApril 29, 2014
Taught me a lot about unappreciative management. I had the responsibilities of an assistant manager but was told in so little words that I was not worthy enough for the title and benefits.

Productive and Intellectual Environment
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Tallahassee, FLApril 25, 2014
On a typical day of work I was responsible for many different tasks such as changing car batteries, rebuilding drill packs, keeping inventory, charging batteries, etc. The owners were very nice, understanding, and trustworthy. They left many of the tasks in the hands of the employees which led to knowledge of a more various amount of skills. The hardest – more... part of the job was the fact that every day and every task was different, so it required a lot of critical thinking in order to solve the customers problem (i.e. a broken flashlight or phone). However, that was the most enjoyable part of the job as well because it was engaging and once I was knowledgeable of all products, I was confident and comfortable solving those problems for the customers. – less

At Batteries Plus Bulbs there are many directions you can go and areas to favor more than others. For instance there is plenty of knowledge for an individual with just the lighting end of the business believe it or not.

Poor Ownership
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Everett, WADecember 29, 2013
Pros: 40 hours a week and medical benefits
Cons: horrible franchisee
The owner of the franchise I worked for would hire people he knew would not work well for his stores. He constantly would talk to down to his employees (especially the females) and would argue about how commercial orders were taken and if they were done correctly. Once someone became a "manager"/salary position he would work them over 40 hours a week – more... and asking for a specific day off was nearly impossible unless you worked at the Seattle location and were a male. – less

This company hold the record for longest employ in my life. I had worked from Las Vegas to Illinois managing stores for a veriety of company owned locations as well as family owned stores. This was a retail fron and Commercial back sales store environment. I learned a lot of my small electrnics repair experience here and if I had a choice would do it – more... again. They were all good people. They were financialy driven and taught mer the importance of good management structure. Hats off to the Batteries Plus team. They know portable power solutions better than anyone else. – less
