I worked at Best Buy full-time (more than an year)

Pros

The discounts are amazing. My store had various contests that helped our team strive for success. The managers really wanted you to succeed.

Cons

There was lots of training to work here. Most of it was pointless and unnecessary. There isn't a lot of room for advancement unless you invest years of your time with that company.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

They need to learn how to listen to the average employee for ideas. If they would listen to the small people, then that would motivate the employees to work harder because they feel like they are represented properly.

    Pros

    The employee discount is nice and management is usually pretty good about working with school schedules. DURING MORNING MEETINGS WE usually get bagels and you do get good accomodation programs through vendors.

    Cons

    You don't always get the best hours and the pay is very low for how much you sell. You should get commission based on how much you sell.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your people better more

    Pros

    Fun creating a great experience for customers, knowing how much they will enjoy a new home theater, which for many will be their first large TV. Opportunities for bonuses as a store if sales are above 100% to goals.

    Cons

    Management and supervisors micro-manage due to pressure from corporate. Unnecessary meetings on Saturday mornings. Unnecessary follow-ups after EVERY sale, and constant questioning about why you sold/didn't sell certain products.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give the sales people a chance...many are great people, but suffer from constant pressure from upper management.
