    Pros

    With the right management (of course) Best Buy can be a sun place to work. Current management at my store is very relaxed and down to earth. One manager spearheaded an employee committee which seeks to identify how the job can be better for the rank and file employees.

    Cons

    Retail hours and mandatory days to be available (5 days you cannot request off during the year).
    Commission pressure without commission pay, tho I find pay to be fair.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees and create an environment where people feel relaxed.

    Pros

    Focused on customer satisfaction at all times, which was good. Seemed to care about employees. Flexible hours. My store had good managers.

    Cons

    Pushed sales a bit too much. Pay was not the best. Sometimes I didn't feel comfortable asking a customer to pay as much as a service cost.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing I can really say other than push a little less on sales. But other than that, the managers did a good job.
