Exciting workplace and atmosphere, over-competitive at times
Product Expert (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB10 September 2013
- day to day involved cleaning, reading up on product, setting up and tearing down demos and most of all pitching sales and helping customers
- I learned I enjoy helping people learn about technology and sales is a "feast or famine" industry, either you sell a lot and get paid well or find a new job
- Management was hugely supportive of sales but sounded like a broken record when it came to selling services and when chiming off the day's sales figures
- co-workers were mostly great people and awesome to work with but some were very competitive and would steal sales/ not do their fair share of cleaning and organizing to try to make more sales
- hardest part of the job was staying positive after having a customer walk after a long negotiation
- best part was seeing the satisfied smile on a customer's face after helping them pick out their dream tv or stereo
Pros
high-energy work environment, played into my interests, awesome staff discount, great co-workers, fantastic earning potential
Cons
odd hours, highly competitive, terrible base pay, terrible beneifts

Future Shop awarded a lot of incentives and a great bonus structure for employees but significantly lacked good managers to provide clear direction for employee development.

I enjoyed working at a future shop, the staff was fantastic to be around. Management although was tough and pushed you a little out of the normal comfort area, did not push more than necessary for job purposes and was successful in keeping up with store requirements. I have a lot of respect for those I worked alongside this company. It was unfortunate that it was not for very long due to the company closing down.
