When I started working there it was great, but one by one the people who made work enjoyable started leaving, and I couldn't blame them. The store in general is messy and unorganised when it comes to stock and displays, which leads to impatient customers and annoyed managers. Some of my colleagues would swipe sales under my nose, but then never do any cleaning or merchandising and leave that to the casual workers, further weakening their chance of making their weekly targets. Shifts would be taken away or added at the last minute, where I would either not have a shift for weeks or would work almost every day for a month. The store is in an odd location meaning you will not be getting many customers, and therefore will not likely make your target. Managers would try to be nice and reasonable, but they can only do so much, and come off as quite two-faced.
Pros
Good pay, especially with casual rate and commission
Cons
Very unorganised, and some nasty colleagues

I have been involved in selling all of my life and moved to retail sales about 9 years ago when I took up my position as a whitegoods/cooking Salesperson at The Good Guys, Maitland NSW The Management Team are hard but fair and are flexible for example they will roster you off to give you time to go to say a wedding. The Management Team both in our Store and at Head Office encourages personal growth and are very supportive. If you put up your hand for help it is there. The Store is like a family to me very helpful and friendly. From my experience, The Good Guys is a great place to work. There are no factions or backstabbers.
Pros
Very supportive working environment, praise offered for a job well done.
Cons
You have to meet sales targets continually but that is sales in a nut

It is a great business but they really push the selling of warranties. The more experienced staff will take the big sales and the fresh employees will get the crumbs.

They pay you as a retail work,(base $19 an hour) when your actually a storeman ( warehouse worker). A store should receive at least $26 an hour as per the award, so you tell me if it's a good place to be working at

Being a fast paced, fast changing industry, it is important to have the support of all. From National Managers through to all team members at store level. Systems and procedures in place to allow for this to occur.
