Fry's Employee
in Hanford, CA

"Never have the proper tools to complete job, no communication between home office, management and employees. Bad pay. Little chance to move up. Management never at work or lazy. Company never shows appreciation for its employees. Really cheap company. Best part is getting paid weekly and co workers."

Fry's Employee

"I've worked at Fry's Electronics for just over a year. On the plus side, it was a friendly working environment with respectable people I could say I was happy to work with. However, the commission system is the most broken I've ever seen, with most products not even paying anything, like a $2,000 TV just because it wasn't the one the company wanted me to sell. If you're looking for an hourly wage position, then Fry's might be a decent place to work at, but DO NOT apply there if you're looking for a sales job."

"Working at Fry's Electronics, prepare to be amazed at how you will be forced to screw people over. Day in and day out, I have to turn people away with simple problems or defer to somebody else and "pass the buck" as it where, because my job description says so. I've watched families get the raw end of the deal because an associate was too ignorant to think 5 minutes into the future. Don't work here."

AV Sales Manager

"It has its ups and downs, and is a great place to learn about the newest and greatest tech that comes out and also get to interact with it and get used to it. A great place to learn about the different types of technology, from computer tech all the way to televisions and audio equipment. If you're good with people then it's also a place to gain great customer service experience, be able to explain and show the customer products that may fit their needs and help close the sale."

I have taken two 40% pay cuts in the past year."
