I have been working at Best Buy full-time (less than an year)

Pros

Flexible schedule- perfect for a student or transitional job. Management will work with your schedule.

Experience- The Bestbuy brand is well respected and what employees experience here will help them with any future jobs

Cons

Poor pay- The pay is kept low because of the "Short Term Incentive" which is a department based monthly team bonus, that is paid out in accordance with hours worked in that month. It is also low and very difficult to attain due to high profit margin standards.

Non Commission based wage, but a commission based environment- Supervisor are the worst perpetrators of this, the company prides itself on non commission employees, but treat their employees as if they are commissioned. They will push an up sale even if its not beneficial to the consumers

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Remember what its like on the sales floor and place attainable goals on your employees.

    Train your managers more, and actually listen to the lower level employees. They are the ones who are receiving constant feed back from consumers.
