Pros

Entrepenurial spirit, Flexibility, People, Culture at the time was great

Cons

No documentation - starting over, again and again.
Retail experience outside of BBY wasn't valued

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop with the weekly purges, if the talent is weak - get rid of them but a weekly purge is demoralizing. Your problems won't be solved by a couple of high powered executives - it will only be resolved when the organization starts working together - not out of fear.

    Pros

    The pay is great, the people are usually fun. The discount is also top notch.

    Cons

    Management is always full of themselves. As an MCSA we need to know everything about products that they do out on the floor....but I wasnt trained in product knowledge. So when people are busy out on the floor and someone has a question, we need to get some one to call them back...only problem is that no one ever wants to return the calls. If the support from the rest of the team members was there then it would be way better.
    Also hate standing in only one spot for the whole day, we cant leave our little area so its hard to walk around which makes it a more tiring day.
