I know of several "displaced" employees who've gone to work for Amscot, and seem pretty happy. They are booming right now (unfortunately, a reality of the times) and appear to always be hiring. I think the pay is decent as well.

Way back in the day I did loss prevention (assets protection as they call it) for Target. It was fun when I started, then through a series of changes it wasn't anymore. They still have shoplifter catchers, but I was an internal theft kind of guy. They eventually ran us all out and replaced us with folks @ the Corp office.

There's not enough money they could pay me to go back into the LP world.

I was offered a SM position at GameStop. Told the DM to stuff it up his ass after he tried to sell me their rewards card three separate times during my interview. It was insane.

I was also offered a position at Dollar General, a grocery store, a corp owned cellular store (T-mobile), and finally a university. I took the university position. There IS life outside of retail.

The pay isn't bad and as long as you do a good job, you'll see a nice raise during your review. I would definitely try it out and if the leadership is bad, request a transfer as they are usually very good about it.

I work for one of the big 3 cellphone companies, at a corporate store. The pay is fantastic for retail, benefits are great, etc etc etc.... but I still am sick of retail. When I rebuild my savings I'm gonna get back in school and get out of retail but yeah, phones are a good business. It's nice not worrying about losing my job everyday, y'know? Been almost a year since I quit BBV and I only miss some of my coworkers.
