Pros

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

Cons

High 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.

    Pros

    One of the greatest pros of working at Bust Buy is it's Results Only Work Environment (referred to as ROWE). I'm not a morning person. My boss would rater work from 10p.m. to 2a.m., but we make it work. There's mutual trust that people will get things done in a timely manner at a time that works for the individual.

    Cons

    There seem to be layoffs every couple of years. It affects one personally to see him/her go and also affects one's workload without an increase in pay. Also, if one wants to see a big increase in pay, don't count on it at review time. You have to get promoted to get a substantial raise.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Push, push, push for more rewarding incentives for a job well done come review time.
