CompUSA Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback
CompUSA is a retailer and reseller of personal computers, consumer electronics, technology products and computer services. Starting with one brick-and-mortar store in 1986 under the name Soft Warehouse, by the 1990s CompUSA had grown into a nationwide big box chain. At its peak, it operated at least 229 locations.

The absolute worst part is the environment, just walk in to any store and talk with more than a few people, everyone hates their job, are looking for something else and management doesn't care.

Patience, never ending patience with the clients is what I learned. Management sometimes had to step in with unruly people who wanted to cause problems or pick fights. Co-workers came and went as it was retail. The hardest part of the job was getting the customer to tell the truth about their computer issues and for them to have patience as well. However the most enjoyable part was mentoring the staff or clients on applications, pcs, laptops, or operating systems.There were noneToo many to list"
