Fun place to work but out of business

CompUSA is out of business so there is not really anything to say about the company. It was fun to work there but didn't pay well and the benefits sucked.

Electronics interesting and uplifting
Cashier (Former Employee) –  Oklahoma City, OKFebruary 8, 2018
A typical day was going count cash in the draw to match start of $50.00. Work on the cash register and assist customers to the department that would help them the best. I learned what different equipment work best with each other. The management was warm and friend as well as wanting their needs met. The hardest part of the job was working on Black Fridays when they changed every year. The most enjoyable part of the job was the people.
Pros
Health care
Cons
No Vacationo

Standard retail, poor management practices
Networking Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Naperville, ILJanuary 26, 2018
Management cared only for what you have sold and had little to no patience for anything else, I had repeat customers that came to me for specific advise, but that was not valued as much as the associate who sold more computers (and also had many returns as people realized they did not want the computer they bought.). The bottom line mattered, and everything else didn't.

It's okay for an opening sales position. No longer in business.
Sales/Customer Service Rep (Former Employee) –  Tampa, FLDecember 20, 2017
No longer in business. Maybe Tiger Direct is still around (the online company).
Was okay for the time. Long days. Not easy to juggle for a student, even part-time.
Was a good place to work in terms of the people.
TV's and computers were an easy sell. The money for sales was fair.
Pros
Decent compensation
Cons
Difficult for students with only full-time employees.
