Pros: you can make as much money as you want to make. great lunch rooms
Cons: horrible place to work if you are in operations (merchandising, cashiers, customer service representatives)
As a sales associate, part-time or full-time, you're really able to do anything - you can make as much money as you wish (depending on how many sales you achieve in a pay period) since it is base hourly pay PLUS commission. If you do not wish to drive sales, you can sit back and enjoy a casual workplace with your base hourly pay. You have free roam of the entire store and can even make commission on items out of your department.
You are presented sales goals for the sale of additional warranties and services offered by Future Shop (Product Service Plan, Replacement Plan, Total Protection Plan, Future Shop Card, FutureGuard, Connect Pro Installation Services) but it is relatively easy to make the goals. Company provides many contests and events for their employees which can make it both a very interesting, engaging and fun place to work.
However, if you are a cashier or a customer service representative (not including customer service specialists), you are not given a 15 minute break regardless of your shift (you are given a lunch only for 8 hour shifts) "as business permits". Merchandisers and cashiers are somehow looked down upon by sales associates and must work harder to earn additional commission pay. Harrassment in this situation from sales positions to cashiers/merchandising is very common and almost always forgotten by management if brought to their attention.
