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

Pros

I 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.

Cons

I 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 ManagementAdvice

I 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.

    Pros

    Managers and leads were always willing to help you better your position and performance. There was some mobility in departments and the management team was always willing to help employees find the right fit for themselves in the store.

    Cons

    None for the company itself; it's the customers you'll have to watch out for.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more willing to let your sales associates switch shifts with each other.
