General Manager (Former Employee), Vernon, B.C. , Calgary A.B. – January 14, 2014
Pros: largest electronic retailer in north america
Cons: technology is changing along with the way people purchase products.
Opening stores from inception and creating a customer focused environment to ensure the highest level of satisfaction from the client and the associate alike. Planning and organizing two general staff meetings a day has helped me to become an effective public speaker who is able to use multiple techniques to keep my audience attentive. Running all aspects – more... of the store operation and responsible for sales exceeding 50 million per year has helped me to learn multiple ways to develop leaders and associates alike and help them find the right fit for themselves. The passion I have for my career shows in the results of engagement, profit and development of the people i work with as well as myself. – less

Its a Commission job. So has to know Customers needs and mold the sale as per customer need even if the product or quality is not good with lower reviews. Has to sell Extended Warranty to make money. So just scare the Customer about the product breakdown and charge more money as 'Extended Warranty gimmick'.

Merchandiser (Current Employee), Barrie, ON – November 18, 2013
Pros: good benefits, if you're full time. co-workers can be fun
Cons: almost anything. corporate fails, management fails.
Don't expect any type of job security. This company makes VERY poor decisions on the corporate level. Don't expect a good wage if you are a merchandiser or csr. Don't expect management to be competent.
In other words, don't have very high expectations for anything.
