Interim management of warehouse (Former Employee), Boulder, COAugust 7, 2015
Pros: There were none
Cons: Too many to list
Too often the tech shop was overwhelmed with customers ready to yell or cry in frustration from their technical issues. Patience, never ending patience with the clients is what I learned. Management sometimes – more... had to step in with unruly people who wanted to cause problems or pick fights. Co-workers came and went as it was retail. The hardest part of the job was getting the customer to tell the truth about their computer issues and for them to have patience as well.
However the most enjoyable part was mentoring the staff or clients on applications, pcs, laptops, or operating systems. – less

This was the best job ever. I worked here during high school up until I moved to Peoria, Il. I don't think the store is no longer open. It was a very fun place to be employed at. Everyone got along very well at work and outside of work.

Technical Manager, Front End Operations, ICC (Former Employee), Knoxville, TN, Birmingham, RaleighMay 29, 2015
Pros: I love computer retail
Cons: Treatment of Employees
Early Comp days were amazing. Vendors would come, you could spend time reading up on the latest technology so you knew what solutions to offer your customers. Then they wanted to sell off and started expecting more from their staff than they could give at the cost of the customer focus.

Technical Support Associate (Former Employee), Omaha, NEMarch 8, 2015
Pros: good entry level job to have.
Cons: none.
I would say it was a good job to get in the entry level getting your feet wet and get know about inside and out of computers. I would say if this company still exist and if someone would like get to know the inside and out and get experience it would the company I would say apply.
