    Pros

    You get to help a lot of people and they appreciate the knowledge and solutions offered.
    You become friends with a lot of co workers and that makes for a fun environment.
    You learn alot about the business side of Best Buy and how retail management works.

    Cons

    Compensation does not match skills and knowledge
    Sometimes you click with management and unfortunately sometimes you don't
    Alot of times its just you with no help from anyone helping multiple people at one time.

    Advice to Management

    Building relationships with employees are key. Those relationships are just as important as building relationships with clients/customers.

  2. A general mess
