Unhelpful and unknowledgeable
Went in Canterbury store (Kent) to get a simple 12v mosfet and 1k resistor. The member of staff had no clue what either was. I tried to explain what i was using it for in the hope of being sold the right components but he cut the conversation short and told me he doesnt know. He didnt ask other staff members to help obtain the appropriate components..just brought up the maplins website on screen and i had to guide the staff (I HAD TO SHOW HIM) through the site to show him what i meant and was still sold the wrong stuff! Staff has no knowledge or experience, no real electrical training of any kind or enthusiasm. Useless and unacceptable for an electronics specialist store!
