Current Employee - Home Theater Sales Associate in Minneapolis, MN

I have been working at Best Buy part-time (more than a year)

Pros

Pretty flexible scheduling, will work with you if you have academics or another job.
Good culture, co-workers are friends and pretty laid back environment IF you are making your goals.
I have enjoyed my experience working there and work goes by fast.
AWESOME DISCOUNT

Cons

Goals can be a bit much.
Raises are VERY low unless you exceed goals each and every month.
Work can be a bit repetitive.
In my location, the break room and bathrooms are absolutely disgusting.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

When coaching employees, do not just demand a certain selling style. Everyone has their own way of selling and if that works, let them be.
Teach employees more on product knowledge before diving into selling techniques.
Online training is not a good way to teach employees on product knowledge, hands-on experience is key.
