    Pros

    The best part about working in BBYM is the people you work with its more of a family vibe. My favorite part is the fast pace environment I work in. Always go go go, and the friendly customers you get to help it's just fun.

    Cons

    Well the cons are limited to retail hours and rough customers, not everyone is a dream to work with.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Push your team, encourage them to push themselves, and try to keep a positive vibe in the work environment, and as always lead from the front.

    Pros

    Culture, Own your own growth, awesome discounts, easily attainable goals, Good hours for full-time, work around school schedule

    Cons

    No benefits for part-time, takes a while to find a full time-position, restructure management every few years so scary job security for upper-level, kind of discouraging to those below those levels looking to advance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Nothing really, managers at my store are pretty cool and they remind us of the things we need to take care of often and check in with us daily.
