I bought batteries and bulbs at Batteries Plus Bulbs right off the bat and didn't even think about using this store again. I was really angry. Then the ad of guy came in and said his name was Peter and I made him change my batteries and he was amazing with fixing my light bulbs and everything else no matter who came in that day.

Batteries Plus Bulbs, which operates in the $32 billion U.S. battery industry and the $22 billion U.S. light bulb industry, plans to open 33 more franchise locations and 14 corporate locations this year, adding some 165 new jobs in local communities, the company said on Tuesday. The company has identified key markets in parts of the mid-Atlantic, New England and southern California, according to a press release. Zero regard for employees proven by: - no communication about scheduling - low pay - high demands in regards to selling specific items, completing services (device repair, key cutting, battery installs) - Online appointments - they let customers schedule appointments, even when there is no technician available, they do not update the customer when you change/cancel the appointment THEN they tell the customer the time to complete the device is about HALF what we tell them over the phone or when they come in.

Your experience here will HIGHLY depend on the quality and quantity of staffing in your store. Management was never a problem, my store leads are fine people but finding good workers to fill out the rest of the staff was a real struggle. As a result, we're lucky to have even 4 people on staff at a time, which sounds manageable in what usually are small stores, but the amount of work that is required as a result of low staff becomes an issue. Advancement opportunities are very virtually nonexistent, unless you're willing to apply for an assistant/general manager position and relocate to a different store. You're needed to learn and be proficient at multiple different things with not much in the way of extra compensation. The "spiffs" that you earn from selling promo items or completing services like programming key fobs and repairing phones can either fluctuate drastically in quantity per month or disappear entirely as an option for spiff. Base pay is lower than I would expect for someone who does the amount/diversity of work asked on any given day. Retail customers are brain-dead here more so than any other place I've worked. Better than some of the other jobs I've had, but there are days where you'll want to run and never come back. (Source: www.indeed.com)
