Pros

Some good benefits....medical and the employee discount is the best...a god working environment in general.

Cons

Even if the sellers are not on sales, you are treated as if you were by your superior....They are asking you to sell a lot of Services all the time!

Advice to Management

Stop putting all the focus on Geek squad and other services numbers and start focusing better on the overall customer experience.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Staff discount was better than expected.

    Cons

    -Below average pay for the work level. -Raises are rarely enough to cover for cost of living increases. -Told it's a non-commissioned workplace, but sales expectations are contrary to that. -Good if you like working with children, and like babysitting your coworkers. -Expect to work entire weekends. -Management doesn't encourage good work behaviour or ethics. It seems to be okay to talk and text instead of work. -The hippy attitude and morning "cheers" are childish and better things could be achieved during that time.

    Advice to Management

    Stop paying people minimum wage at Best Buy. It's not a minimum wage job, and shouldn't be paid like it is. If you want to keep people and encourage good work, pay people appropriately!! Increase labour and staffing. If you're supposed to be there to help the customers, have more staff on hand. More labour means more staff, and more staff means that more customers can be helped, which means more sales and profit.
