Full of giggles and spills.

Geek Squad, Home Theater Specialist (Former Employee)
Minneapolis, MN

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

ProsI like the big screen tvs. It's nice because you never miss the big sporting events and when things are slow you can go in the theater room and watch an awesome movie on the big sound system.

ConsI didn't like that I had to sell people stuff. It was hard sometimes and they had lots of questions that were hard to answer.

Advice to Senior ManagementI think that 5% commission is way too low for a big screen tv sale. I think they should up it to at least 50%, it only seems fair.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
