Great start with an unfortunate ending

Computer Specialist (Former Employee)
Rochester, NY

I worked at Best Buy full-time for more than a year

ProsGreat people to work with. Lively Work environment. Awesome product knowledge with excellent technicians (Geeksquad) Right on Hand.

ConsHigh pressure sales for non-commissioned job. Management was very pushy about their numbers. Annual reviews were poorly conducted. Annual raise was very minimal ($.30). New hires were getting paid more than me (I started out making $8.50, annual raise put me to 8.80, new hires were making $9.00 and management wouldn't raise my pay so I left the company.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
