    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Honestly, you’re going to push the fact that you are “performance” based instead of commissioned based then make so it’s fair across the board. For example, at my store you have hourly revenue goals set for 500$ which is not too high, but then to turn around and award associates with an hourly sales revenue of 1500$ with 60 hours a week and others who make 400$ 20 per week is not right. Put quite simply Best buy is basically substituted the monetary incentive with work hours as an incentive which makes it next to impossible to be financially stable if one week you exceed your hourly revenue of 500$ minimum every day and the next week for whatever the reason, you're struggling just to hit 350$. Part of the other problem I have with best buy is to be communication between departments, particularly with geek squad and the sales floor. We need to before we get on the floor if there’s a promo on GSP services to avoid the confusion and headaches of having customers pay regular price for a GSP bundle that is technically on sale. Perhaps the most pressing issue about this communication lapse is what specifically can and can’t be covered. I’ve seen associates on the sales floor tell customers that we cover accidental damage on up to 4 other devices with the GSP protection plans which is definitely wrong. To summarize, This is a very good company to work for however Upper management needs to decide do they want to have a commissioned based environment or not. Abandon this “performance” based environment strategy or at the very least make changes to regulate it so that the so called “rock stars”(As my manager put it) don’t get overworked to death.

    UPDATE 05/12/2014:

    Recently my store has decided to implement two new policies that have made this company impossible to work for

    1.) Part time employees essentially can't call out sick without being written up (3 write ups and you're fired) because we do not receive sick days (paid or even unpaid)

    2.) New SOP states that employees have to have at least one customer do a Branded Payment (Credit Card Application Sign Up) EVERY SHIFT! So if you work 5 shifts in a week the minimum amount of brand payments you must get before your weekly review is 5. (After 3 times of not meeting this goal, it is automatic termination) This is why both employees and customers are losing faith in best buy, they're trying to hard to push financial services instead of normal services and solutions. Seeing how especially in bad economic times this is not always feasible to even get 5 a month sales floor personnel job security has just been thrown completely out the window.

    Negative Outlook
