    I worked at Best Buy part-time

    Pros

    The staff I worked with were great and always willing to lend a hand. Awesome atmosphere among the workers with very few exceptions.

    Cons

    The hours were very sporadic and it was hard to plan ahead because the schedules were released fairly late. The policy on always carrying a folder was awful.

    I worked at Best Buy (more than a year)

    Pros

    It's a fun, friendly environment. I always felt among friends with my co-workers and it made doing my job easier. Good hourly pay rate. Meetings were productive and informal.

    Cons

    A lot of pressure is going to be put on you to meet sales goals, but they do not pay out commission. It's hard to get motivated to bust your butt and make these sales, when your co-workers shamming out and playing on their phones are going home with the same paycheck as you.

    They tend to hire young, pretty females. If you're older, or not so easy on the eyes, I hope you're going for a management positon

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You're going to have to find a way to both bring down your prices - probably through overhead costs if you want to remain in business.

    Learn the value of commissions and bonuses if you want to motivate your sales force.
