Current Employee - Sales Associate in Fort Wayne, IN

I have been working at Best Buy full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

working with new technology every day

Cons

high school like atmosphere
management is only there because they have been their the longest not because they are the best at their job
if you are good at your job you will be the one they come to when they aren't hitting numbers. they wont go to the weakest link and try to get them to step their game up they will come to their best sales people and ride them to get more sales.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

get some college educated people in management not just people who have worked their for 10+years. your GM absolutely should have a college degree.
