Great Discount and fun team members, bad GM who takes out he/she's bad days on the staff
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Grande Prairie, AB – 20 July 2018
Worked here for a year doing all sorts of different departments and got one raise during that one year. Employee discount is great if you need some new tech, and for the most part most team members are extrememly knowlegeable and very friendly. Some members of managment prone to favoritism including the GM. GM also basically walks the floor with a bad attitude, being aggressive towards sales staff and customer service staff about not doing something or other, almost like he/she was out to find something to get mad about. Also consistently took personal calls while on the floor all the while scolding employees for being on their own phones. Some of the supervisors are really nice, and it can be a fun place to work at times, but the managment team is a bit too much for it to be worth it. Also you will be constantly hassled about selling "service plans" (warranties) and in store services, all the while not matter how hard you try you will still be asked about it relelntessly, and even blasted with a reminder every few hours about sales targets. Which by the way doesnt affect your own paycheck because its non commision with all the pressure of a commision position. Oh and random hours posted only 2 or sometimes 1 week in advance, making it hard to schedule your life as well as you will never get black friday or boxing day off, or christmas eve let alone the days before christmas.
