Fucking Fry's. Their employee commission policies have created a breeding ground of scum and villainy. Among my poor experiences:
1.)Sales people arguing over who gets to "ring me up" and get the commission, as I was purchasing big ticket items from different departments (they eventually asked me to pay in two separate transactions, which I didn't mind because one was business and one was for home). It was pretty awkward.
2.)I had to return a very expensive printer as it turned out to be a piece of shit in every way possible and the recommendation from the sales person was inappropriate. They first tried everything possible to disallow the return, even though it had been less than one week. They opened up all the packaging to try to claim that it wasn't all there or the item was damaged. Laughs on them, I hadn't even bothered unwrapping anything but the printer itself. They then called over THE SALESPERSON WHO HAD SOLD ME THE PRINTER AND HE TRIED TO TALK ME OUT OF RETURNING IT. I'm like, "fuck you," this is an office workhorse printer and it has a 100 sheet capacity, you straight-up lied to me that it was 500 sheets. He then sat in line with me, and when I tried to get a refund tried to insist that I was only allowed to get store credit. Sorry Vishnu, I already purchased a replacement on Amazon. The guy gave me the stink eye the entire time we waited in line and were at the register. Literally just looked at me with murder in his face for about five straight minutes.
3.)On what I swore would be my last visit, someone helped me grab some (again, expensive) electronic equipment. He then refused to give me my cart with the items in them. Just refused. Instead he began pushing the cart and following me around the store. Finally I told him this was ridiculous and I was going to be a while, so he took the cart and went To the registers to guard it and wait for me.
