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

Pros

Selling technology with the support of constant elearnings is more stimulating than other entry level/minimum wage jobs. If you have good selling skills and leadership you may be able to grab a promotion and move up within the company--you'll just have to wait for your raise.

Cons

There are slightly unrealistic bonus goals now that CBG bonuses off of notional margin rather than revenue; so if you like bonuses, get a position in HBG selling homesyncs and 4K TVs.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Annual reviews for raises ought to change; it should be a merit/selling history based rating system.

    Pros

    The discount and training programs (for product knowledge only) came with a lot of perks and free stuff.

    Cons

    They will change your schedule on you at the drop of a hat, not tell you about it, and then fill out punishment paperwork right away regardless of the fact that it was management's fault and not yours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your part timers are not expendable slaves.
