What do you like about working at Circuit City?

"I really can't say enough good things about my time at Circuit City! The thing I liked best about this job was something I rarely see these days and that is all the managers put their faith, and trust in us to do our jobs. They didn't hover over our shoulders. They gave us the training we needed and trusted us to do our job from there. Our store was a Store of Distinction and for good reason! Our team put the customers FIRST. We went out of our way to make their shopping experience great and made sure they remembered our store and wanted to come back again! I am still saddened Circuit City went bankrupt. It was a great place to work during the time I was there and would have highly recommended it to anyone looking for a job. It was the best job I ever had and I wish I still had it."

They were so impressed they hired me at the end of the interview the day I went in to interview."

What don't you like about working at Circuit City?

"There really weren't many minuses to working at Circuit City. I know that may seem a bit unrealistic but it was the truth. My store had great management and they were always on our side and always there when we needed them. They listened to us and gave us everything we needed to do our jobs so I truly cannot think of a minus to having worked at the Circuit City location I did."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"If any of our store's former management team is reading this, the only suggestion I could possibly have made is I wish they'd been able to find the hours and a place for those of us who truly worked and wanted to be able to stay working at that location to be able to do so. I would have gladly, no questions asked, stayed with Circuit City until the bankruptcy if they could have worked out some way for myself and the others who truly worked hard to show they wanted to be there to be able to stay. You guys were a phenomenal management team and I cannot thank you enough for making our store the great place it was to work!"
