a couple questions. 1) if I get hired would my salary at future shop be totally on commission or would there be an hourly rate and commission. 2) this may differ from province but what would be my salary every paycheck if I worked in Product Merchandising?

Once again you can discuss payment with a manager. :smileywink:

 

The requirements for gaming are not strict; you must demonstrate gaming knowledge and have some retail experience.

I was just wondering what volunteer work would help when it comes to applying for a job at Futureshop, say... gaming or computer department. I know I am not going to get a job while I am in high school, but I most likely will need one in the summer break in between the university school year. I right now volunteer in my school's holiday craft show every year and I am looking into volunteering at the hospital. PC gaming and technology are my passion. I know not many places that people volunteer at involve technology, so is it more concentrated on social volunteer work?

 

Thanks, I'm just curious.

I've been applying for a job at my local Futureshop for awhile now and I'd like some kind of real confirmation that my applications are getting though... I've followed the directions in this thread so hopefully I'll get at least a phone interview, but now I'm wondering if that's all I can do? Is there anyone I can talk to at the local Futureshop that I'm applying to just to touch base and let them know I exist and such?

It might be worth swinging by your local store after you've applied and following up in person with a manager.
