Circuit City: Not My Favorite

November 16, 2008

When I was 17 I worked in the “Advanced Consumer Electronics” (alarm clocks and telephones) department at Circuit City.  One of my managers was a large bearded man who went by the name Wolf. He had giant gawdy gargoyle rings on his fingers and wore a pentagram pendant around his neck. Once I even found a homemade pentagram token under my cash register, it made me feel strange.

Circuit City was dark and depressing, the commission driven employees stressed me out. True, the desperation to make a sale caused Circuit City employees to become experts, but I’ll take lazy Best Buy folks any day.
