I worked at Best Buy

Pros

Not a terrible place to work for a first job, beats fast food..

Cons

As a tech guy, being pushed out onto the sales floor and pushing service plans and other misc. stuff was not ideal.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Good luck.

    At first it was fun to chase the dream but after working for 1 year we all realize it's just a tease. You never $$$!

    I have been working at Best Buy full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Fun People, Decent Hours, Flexibility, 4 weeks vacation.

    Cons

    Management, Pay, Commission Structure, Management, Management. Promise of $$ never comes and sooner or later everyone gets wise and leaves. They know just where to put your quota so you never get paid. 90% of the sales force makes base and thats it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop putting the problems of the company's business plan on your sales force. Invest in systems that work. Allow your sellers to SELL! Did i mention fix your systems. Stop lying to yourselves and your stock holders...
