Retail computer experience that taught me a lot about what to do and not to do.

I worked at Best Buy part-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Great job while I was in college, very flexible with class schedules and other obligations. Taught me a lot about sales and how big retail operates.

Cons

Overall it was a decent job. Micromanaging, focusing on meeting monthly quotas rather than helping people get what they need. Overselling is a common problem in any retailer though.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Less micromanaging, more team goals, incentive based performance.
