    Ok, I went and bought some CDRs to burn all of the junk off of my computer since my hard drive grows smaller by the day. I mean, I dont ask for much when i go to Frys, just a friendly cashier is what Id like to deal with, and I got one. Her name was Sarah, and she was very friendly and helpful as my fiance and I checked out. I'd recommend her to anyone who needed a good cashier experience.  
    The only downside was that the supervisor was taking to another employee who had bought something right before I did, and the sup stared right at me and gave me a dirty look (probably because she didnt like me when I worked there) and finally sent the purchasing employee on her way. Other than that, I had a great experience.

    The only positive experience I ever had at Fry's was when I purchased a Tv From a sale person named Alan in the Burbank Store
    he was very patient ,knowledgeable and eased my purchase by walking me up to the cashier and insuring the sale went through
    quickly and without difficulty .I will only purchase another thing at Fry's if he is there to help me.

    Aura - wouldn't it be easier to use an external hard drive to back up your data, versus burning it to CD's? Prices for external hard drives are really low.  
     
    BTW, the best experience I ever had at Frys was...hmmm...gee...never actually had a good Fried experience, come to think of it.

    At least suggest DVD's... maybe they cannot afford an external harddrive. :)  
     
    But maybe you don't ever have a good experience because you always walk in there expecting a bad experience that it starts becoming a self-fulfilling prophesy.Hiya kids. Here is an important message from your Uncle Bill. Don't buy drugs. Become a pop star, and they give you them for free!

    I like working at Fry's. Being there when everything is a good, is a good experience for me to enjoy... and for when everything seems to be going wrong, is a good experience for me to learn (how to deal with it or handle situations.) Most days run by very well, but I am still learning.

    Nope...My first experience with Fry's was in the early 1990's when I made a visit to their Manhattan Beach store. The entire lot is set up on a triangular chunk of land at the corner of a busy intersection. There are two entrances - one on each street. Trying to find a parking spot was a crock. Then...I walked in. As I recall, I was looking for a particular software title, which I had called and verified that they had. It took forever to find it because it was in the wrong section. My first experience in their "check-out" was interesting. Then came the door nazi's....  
     
    Fry's was (emphasis past tense) because they'd have software that CompUSA or Egghead (if you remember them) didn't. But...it seemed Fry's would lie any way they could to get out of doing a return, or to just sell you something.  
     
    As I've said before, I then went to work for the insurance/risk management brokerage that handled Fry's insurance coverages. That's when I got an inside glimpse of how they operated. Pretty scary.

    It was "interesting" in that was the first time I'd ever experienced that. I knew legally they couldn't force me to show them my sales slip and such.  
     
    Note to Sas - I started using the Jedi mind trick on them. After all, Fry's employees are weak minded.

    yes you work a fried you are a fried employee so whats the time should stop you dead in your tracks and then I dont need to go and use the force to change your mind it will have made a kernel panic all on its own. its kindof a joke on what obi said about using the jedi mind trick i had said it was overkill since asking what the time was confused them but instead i confused you on the punch line ........ waves a hand across saying "you will not look at my reciept."Looking for my head ............... yeah the eight valve one yeah ....

    I went to the Tempe store for the second time in my life yesterday and remembered what it was like to walk into the san jose store. I asked a guy if he had a certain type of telephone headset. And he leads me on a wild goose chase and I say to him: Look if you don't know, tell me, but do not waste more of my time.  
    And of course he had no idea. Even though he spent 20 minutes of my precious time pretending he did... Now, thats the Frys I frew up on!Superhero!
