My First Two Weeks at Abt.

Tuesday, July 30th, 2013

In anticipation of the Abt Job Fair, here’s a quick guest post from Emily, one of the newest members of our Internet Merchandising team. 

My First Two Weeks

Starting my new job here at Abt Electronics, I was really nervous. As soon as I walked in the door I had a sense of overwhelming excitement. Everyone was so helpful and nice it really made my first day one of the best. As the days went on, before I even knew it I had already finished my first week! I just remember driving home on that Friday evening thinking how grateful I am to have such a wonderful job and excited for the career path before me. (more…)

Technology Tuesday-Healthy, Wearable Technology

Tuesday, July 30th, 2013

TECH TUESDAYS
I’ve got just 275 miles left before I reach the Nike+ Running Black Level.  My Nikeplus.com account has logged an average distance of 4.5 miles in the 2,055 miles it’s recorded.  In over 452 logged runs I’ve achieved 209 Trophies & accomplished 105 personal goals.  Today I just accepted the Quadruple Threat Goal.  There is no way I will ever leave this product line.  I am a member of the wearable technology world.  My membership cost me the price of some cool hardware and has provided me years worth of this digital obsession.

Come Join the Abt Team!

Monday, July 29th, 2013

We like to think Abt is a pretty great place. Not to toot our own horns, but we’ve been voted one of the best places to work for, on both the local and national level. And a very highly-regarded consumer magazine named us as Top Appliance Retailer in the Country for the last four years in a row. In order to keep our crowns, we’re looking to add more of the resource that helped earned them: employees.

abt job fair

This Wednesday, July 31st, we’ll be hosting a Job Fair in the Atrium of our Glenview showroom. We’re looking for potential team-members to help with every aspect of Abt’s operations: warehouse personnel to receive and stock products, sales persons to help customers choose a product, delivery drivers to deliver and install the products, customer service reps to provide post-purchase support, and even more. Besides being a great place to work, Abt offers pay higher than the industry average, excellent benefits and a variety of other perks. If you’d like to be part of an award winning team, come on down to Glenview this Wednesday with a resume or application (applications will be available in store), as well as a positive attitude. Hope to see you there!

Directions to Abt.

Abt is known for our wide selection and award winning customer service.  We are also known for having just about everything you could need to outfit your home and your lifestyle.  We were pleasantly surprised to see our store showcased in a recent Glenview Patch article.  Titled, 7 Living and Shopping Essentials Found at Abt author Stan Golovchuk

All of the items are on display in our store, and if you are in the Chicagoland area, feel free to check them out.  And yes, Stan is right, if you are near our HUGE fish tank, it’s best to not bring any plugged appliances with you!

B&W Speakers’ IndyCar Makes a Pit Stop at Abt

Friday, July 26th, 2013

The Abt Atrium is host to a variety of mini boutique shops, where customers can find products displayed with a tighter focus than on the general salesfloor. Scattered around the atrium, you’d also find a variety of entertaining or educational exhibits, like our tribute to Thomas Edison. And then there are a handful of open spots, which we like to fill with a rotating selection of unique items like a full-scale airplane model, a soccer stadium for robotic vacuums, or just a simple Ferrari 458 Spider.

Today, we welcomed a new guest that might be the most exciting yet: an authentic IndyCar, the Bryan Herta Autosport IndyCar  Show Car, sponsored by Bowers & Wilkins.
