    I have been working at Best Buy part-time

    Pros

    Nice starting wage for retail work, good training, and the benefits are pretty nice for discounts.

    Cons

    Chaotic hours with sudden changes are common and a strong drive towards numbers instead of customer satisfaction often leads to a commission based selling strategy without the pay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Decrease the importance of revenue goals and focus more on customer satisfaction scores or watch sales associates.

    I worked at Best Buy full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Usually fast-paced, fun to work with electronics, employee discount, mostly young people, flexible schedule, most customers are good people and many are enjoying to talk to.

    Cons

    low pay, little upward mobility, managers are overworked and underpaid and therefore unable to provide the kind of support that would be necessary to truly make employees successful.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay people more. Consider commissioned sales.
