    Pros

    The people you work there with are great. They're really helpful with training and pay above minimum wage. Flexible Hours

    Cons

    They make you go through a mandatory sales training, if you do fail it. You get a written report on it. There's alot of things changing with management and store wise. Loads of training programs that you have to do at home or at work, depending how busy you are.

    Pros

    the accommodations are probably the best part of working at best buy since you get additional discounts on top of your employee discount

    Cons

    The place is nice and fun to work at so i have nothing wrong with working there so far plus I've worked there for less than a month so I haven't gotten a great lot of time to have any cons

    Advice to Management

    keep it up

    Pros

    Fun because you are around people of all types.
    Grow some great friendships.
    Pay is above average.
    Excellent way to learn about technology and customer selling skills.
    Benefits were okay.
    Tuition Reimbursement.

    Cons

    Leadership may not be practical at times.
    Favoritism is inevitable.
    Commission based environment, without the appropriate pay.
    Geek Squad Protection/Accessory Attachment is a must (Must strive at up selling) or you will either lose hours or be fired.

    Advice to Management

    There is more to the numbers than just the Manager of that area. I am a Sales Lead that practically does everything for the Department Manager and I am consistently ignored for the work I do in the department. All praise goes to the Manager who takes vacations and takes time off every other week.
