Not Bad for Retail

Lead Compters Specialist, Portable Electronics Specialist (Former Employee)
Alexandria, VA

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

ProsThe payrate is decent. Not enough to completely live off of where I worked, but well above what other electronics stores offer. The employee discount is also really nice; most places won't top it. You also tend to be recognized for your hard work and commitment.

ConsIt's retail, so it comes with rude, entitled customers, long hours on your feet, questionable management choices, and lazy coworkers. Also, you're encouraged to push protection plans aggressively, and although you're not paid on commission, your performance will be judged based off of how many plans you sell a month. It encourages underhanded tactics and suspicion among customers, which strains customer loyalty.

Advice to Senior ManagementPush more customer loyalty and understand, not so much on services that are grossly unpopular among everyone except the grossly uneducated.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
