Awesome workplace, fantastic environment, by far my favorite place to work to date.
Pros: there are too many to list here. i plan on applying to work here again, one of the managers told me the best time to do so would be around february.
Cons: the only real con is that when it gets to be very busy, the stress levels can be astronomical, but otherwise there aren't really any cons
A typical day at work really depends on what day it is, and whether it's a holiday or not. Micro Center is a retail store, so the environment is that of a retail environment. It can be laid back, or it can be very hard, it just depends on the volume of sales that day.
I wouldn't have said it before, while I still worked there, but thinking back on – more... it, I learned actually a fair amount, mostly about how a retail store is run, and displays and such and the importance of a good environment, that is well organized and looks good. I also learned that even though it's hard work sometimes, it can be rewarding.
The management, was Fantastic, except for two managers that were there, but for those two, apparently I wasn't the only one who felt that way, they are no longer working for Micro Center, and one lasted maybe a month before he no longer worked there.
Most of my co-workers were very good, I didn't like a few of my co-workers, but it didn't interfere with anything, and we never actually butted heads or anything, so it isn't really anything, just a personal thing, that has little or nothing to do with the store overall, or even the employees in general. In general, the employees make Micro Center more of a family-like environment than a business environment, it's comfortable, and enjoyable.
The hardest part of the job was that it was often demanding work, and frequently busy, and thus hectic.
The most enjoyable part of the job... well when I worked there I wouldn't have called it enjoyable, but we(the employees) were always kept doing stuff, and didn't have much down time except for our breaks. When I worked there, my favorite job that I had to do from time to time was stocking the shelves, doing inventory, and working in warehouse. – less
