    TL;DR  
     
    I put in a months notice because I started to hate the place after working 6 days a week for 7 months straight but after I left I  
    realized how much I actually liked working there. Is there no way to actually get back in there? I really want to go back. I  
    have only been gone for two months.

    Generally no, but I heard of one case where someone was given a month to reconsider after they left. However, that person had connections so if you didn't, Idk. Why re-apply at Fry's though? You can definitely find somewhere better to work...

    Pretty much depends on your situation when you left.
    If you were well liked and good numbers (I doubt they'd let you back unless you were sales / maybe a manager), you might be able to. Otherwise I doubt it. I think I've seen one person come back, and one get rejected.
    I've always thought of it more as a intimidation tactic, and usually people don't have any intention of coming back anyways.

    Not sure what made you change your mind, but there are plenty of other dead end jobs out there if you really miss it that much.

    Because I got away with so much, it was actually fun. I liked all the people I worked with. My numbers were horrible though.

    You'll get rehired and remember and realize all the shit you previously disliked. It's a pendulum. Every job has it's ups and downs. Just be glad you remember all the good things that happened there. It's better than jobs that stick in your head as places you hated. But since you did work there for seven months, future employers will see that as you having good traits since everyone know that Fry's is a shithole of employment.  
     
    BTW is "shithole" a compound word? Or is there a space?

    There are a lot of reasons to feel like wanting to go back, and they're normal, psychologically speaking, but it's important to take the time to let the nostalgia and insecurity wash away to find your true self.  
    I've found that the thing I liked most about Fry's was helping people with tech, so I started to help my art friends with tech questions. I give them all the technical information they need to the best of my abilities.  
    I also tell them about the erroneous misconceptions retail imposes on people thru advertising so they understand there are more options for doing graphic and game design than just Photoshop on a Mac.  
    Basically, Fry's taught me how to help people not to always buy at Fry's.  
    Ask yourself why you left, was it co-workers or the environment ? What did you like about it? Find out the answers to these questions, and I'll be you'll find out how you can get that same experience, but somewhere else.

    They generally don't do it unless you have certain exceptional skills like working in car installation or being a manager/supervisor. Secondly, you have to be sponsored by the department manager and unless you're going to have a lot of staying power (more than 3 months) they're not interested. It's possible but it is rare and a hassle.
