    frostbytes89: BY THE WAY if you any of you guys work in texas you will be happy to kno that i SCREWED FRYS! LAWLZZ!! so for those of you just coming in i created this thread to get the message across and start standing up to this greedy company. at the time i still worked for Fry's the greedy company. I was teh first to stand up to Fry's the greedy company by telling them NO! I WILL NOT CONTRIBUTE TO FREE LABOR BY DOING YOUR PRODUCT, SCHEMATICS, AND PRICE CHANGES OR STAY LATE ANY MORE! they gave me a three day suspension. After that i decided not to go to work anymore, filed for unemplyment, and now Fry's is paying me to SIT ON MY ASS! aahhhhhhh how the tables have CHANGED! turns out, that since FRYS DID NOT ASS US TO SIGN ANYTHING AGREEING TO THE PAY CHANGE they have termintaed ALL rights of employment. and thus, if you quit, you automatically get unemployment :) :) SO QUIT BOYS AND HELP TO BANKRUPT FRY'S!!!

    Is Computer Components still hourly plus commission at all stores? I'm thinking of switching departments.

    ^ It still is, but I suspect they will not keep it that way for long.

    The rumor I heard is that Components is supposed to be on the new program next quarter. I'm not sure if that is true or not.

    I think people are paranoid about Fry's finding out who there are like Frostbyte. To me he made the right decision by furthering his education while collecting unemployment.

    Unemployment doesn't last forever and it looks kinda crappy on your resume to have employment gaps. Just saying.

    Boy oh boy how time has gone by. I just stumbled upon this page again somehow, I totally forgot about this entire incident and my experience working for this absolute shithole of a company so many years ago. I was reading one of my earlier comments on this thread that was in response to the (presumably my old manager) that called me a slacker.  
     
    What's funny is, now I live in California making $130,000/yr as a software engineer. I actually did get my degree, I worked my ass off, and its really crazy how... my perspective has changed. Basically this entire thing boils down to, "I used to work for a greedy ass company, under shitbag nobodys that are going nowhere and live in the tiniest world imaginable". Its amazing just how.. inconsequential everyone I met at Fry's actually was to my life. Oh yeah haha, my manager at the time whose name I actually forget, his 5 day suspension was for banging the hot female latina supervisor that he promoted directly out of customer service to sales supervisor (lvl3). Like.. 0 experience just bam, straight into supervisor haha. She couldn't have told you what RAM was. Then she was seen kissing him outside of work. Then she got pregnant. No idea whose baby it was. (He was already married btw).  
     
    What's also funny is how silly I sounded in my comments. Ah I was so young and so naive haha. Definitely the mentality of an 18 year old. Though I have to say, it feels really good to be like, "Hey fuck you - I'm gonna get a degree and make triple what you make", and that's pretty much exactly what I did hahaha. So take that, ass hats. Enjoy your ~40k/yr salary at your greedy skeevy sales job where you trick old people into buying shit they don't need so you can collect a few pennies. I'll sit back, write some code, and enjoy the sunshine ;)
