    Current Employee - Sales Associate in Roanoke, VA

    I have been working at Best Buy part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    - A great culture of folks who try to make the work fun
    - Very reasonable with scheduling
    - Bosses who provide support where needed then get out of the way
    - TONS of online training, both required and optional
    - Training that is honest about objectives (eg. it is a business that wants to maximize profits; a lot of companies are afraid to say that)
    - A very quantitative assessment system that lets you know exactly how you're doing
    - I get to wear this cool little radio in my ear and talk with my fellow work peeps (Chatter is discouraged, but still)

    Cons

    - Incentives, but no commission (I'd be more OK with that if the salary was higher)
    - The corporate culture sometimes falls flat on trying to be cool and is just cheesy
    - Little to no advancement potential

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Honestly, I think any potential improvements local leadership could make is limited by corporate mandates. For instance, such a quantitative performance tracking system makes pay raises easily justifiable (or not), but local managers are capped on salaries.
