    Pros

    No management breathing down neck. No sales quotas.

    Cons

    Not enough hours! Need better communication between company and retail store.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. Very useful on giving good sales tips but also not sounding too aggressive as if there was a quota.

    Pros

    The company itself does have some good programs, I worked on one that I actually enjoyed.

    Cons

    The salary is low for expectations, they often change bonus structure in the middle of the month/quarter making them unattainable, the program I worked on extremely micromanaged and spent way too much time on conference calls and too many steps to complete simple things like buy a manager lunch or set up a training event.

    Advice to Management

    Stream line processes hire people you can trust so you don't have to micro manage and pay them better so they will want to do their job.

    Pros

    Clearly set expectations. Well-laid out training and access to appropriate supporting documents.

    Cons

    Inventory issues. You can't sell what you don't have, but that does push salesperson into what they have to sell.

    Advice to Management

    Weekly repetitive conference calls are nearly as fun as endless days of power point presentations.

    Pros

    Very independent workplace where all tasks and challenges are handled by the ASR through the Best Buy management Company treats employees very well and management is very considerate

    Cons

    There is a long process to get almost anything done in store which can be frustrating. Most all sales revenue ASR's generate runs through Best Buy staff and is almost entirely out of the employee's hands.
