Pros

Employee discount
Meet great people
Great, friendly environment
Get to be around the newest electronics

Cons

No recognition/appreciation
Not competitive compensation
Increased responsibilities with no increase in pay

Advice to Management

Create some sort of incentive to retain your most valuable employees. You have incredibly high turnover because it isn't hard for competitors to pay more than Best Buy.

    Pros

    amazing benefits: discount, tuition reimbursement, health benefits, vacation personal and sick time.

    Cons

    Pressure to makes sales when you get paid at a low rate. The pay scale is unfair and very biased.

    Advice to Management

    Relax, it isn't that serious.

    Pros

    great discount and great work environment, It was fun to work there. The people are really friendly and it almost seemed as your in control of what you can do.

    Cons

    Didn't go by my school schedule when they were short on people. Gets a little annoying with all the learning and constant changing of selling skills.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the old discount which came back. Also work with school schedules for people trying to go to college.
