Salesman (Former Employee) – Vaudreuil-Dorion, QC – 23 January 2014
In the gaming department I was held responsible for keeping up to date on the latest video game releases by reading every new edition of the store flyer. Price drops from competing stores were important to follow, because shoppers can ask employees to match a competing store's prices. At the time, I considered this to be the hardest part of my job. During the holiday season I learned to rapidly switch between English and French and occasionally speak to groups of people.
Quality employee lounge, information about new releases and big sales
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Saint John, NB – 14 August 2017
Job and life does not have any balance. Salary is basic and health benefits were good. No job advancement or job security even if promised by management. Management lacked in commitment to employees. Job culture did not seem to exist as everyone was only looking out for themselves and no team support.
Product Expert (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 7 August 2017
This company is closed now. However, at the time was fun and appealing store for customers whom seek professional advise from expert sales persons. The staff were well knowledgeable about electronics and their products as well as the market and other competitions. Their world class customer service can't be seen any where else after....
Merchandiser (Former Employee) – Medicine Hat, AB – 31 July 2017
As a merchandiser, you needed to know where everything was in the store so that you could stock it all up. You also needed to be in the back to unload the truck deliveries and load truck deliveries for appliances. Overall, it was fun. Some of the supervisors were bad to be around, they would be attacking verbally, but overall, you do your job and you fit in well.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Vaughan, ON – 26 July 2017
Working as a sales associate during my quick co-op stint was a great experience as it was my first ever job and taste at the real life. As a sales man, I found speaking to potential customers about their wants and needs was the best way to approach them.

Sales Representative and Assistant (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 13 June 2017
My Co-op placement at Future shop gave me good first hand knowledge on selling products and dealing with customers. I also learned how to manage the store and general store upkeep such as restocking shelves, changing price tags, scanning price tags, and also organizing and placing products efficiently. A typical day at work is also enjoyable because you can go 1 on 1 with customers and you are not pressured, thus you can be more friendly with the customers. Fellow employers were also friendly, they helped me in getting comfortable in the workplace and they taught me the ropes.
Operations Manager (Former Employee) – Windsor, ON – 10 June 2017
Awesome place to work and very family oriented. Sales were driven by professional sales people and lots of training available to learn and advance. Managers provided training and held accountability when required but managed fairly.
