Good people, great pool of knowledge, but...
Pros: Great intro to the Tech World!
Cons: Scheduling and Wage sucks!
This job was very rewarding to me, I learned A LOT about many different things. I didn't know much about computers/printers etc.. coming in to the store, and in less then a months I was Rookie of the month and was promoted to a computer specialist.
I like how they give you mandatory qualifications exams, you learn a lot from the videos and quizzes. They really try to teach you as much as they can about the company, products, and overall technology,even if it is not in your department, whatever is offered at the store, you will know something about it.
However, for students and/or parents, is difficult to accommodate a perfect schedule! You will sometimes have to trade shifts or work something out. It was very difficult for me to have a good schedule while being a full time student and parent, especially working in a high demand department like computers.
As for the pay, well, I felt that for all the hard work and efforts some employees put into sales, the compensations do not do justice. As well as for the yearly raises. I feel that people in high traffic departments, should get some type of commission or higher wages.
They have benefits for full timers, such as 401k, health, dental, sick leave, vacation time.
