ThinkGeek as a brand, is incredible. ThinkGeek as an employer, not the best. This company most likely provides a better work experience for employees that aren't working in the stores. This was my first job after leaving the military, and the location I worked at was the 3rd store to open in the United States. There was quite a bit of excitement since we helped set up the store, and opened on Black Friday. The fact that this store sells mostly higher priced collectibles really sinks in when part-time employees struggle to get their 20 hours a week, and shift sizes go from 5-7 people to 1-3 per shift. The workplace environment is stressful and there is a constant feeling of urgency from management to push items. The most enjoyable part of the job would probably be getting to set up the store and see the new items firsthand, and being able to build trust with customers.
Getting to know other geeks with similar interests, there's an employee discount that stacks with promotions/deals.
low pay, not enough hours
