    I have been working at Best Buy full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Competitive salary, great co workers, being able to see your hard work pay off in real time, employee discount, learning the tricks of sales and how to deal with confrontation.

    Cons

    unrealistic daily and monthly budgets, high pressure sales, I had to become someone I did not want to be in order to get the results the company expected. A lot of politics involved in leadership it doesn't matter if you are actually good at your job as long as you can play the politics and be able to explain who and what is holding the store back.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The management for the most part has already "drank the koolaid" so to speak. They strongly believe in "accountability" which is necessary but their delivery is way off. Instead of getting to know each person individually to try and understand their personal struggles with the position, they will pull you into the office and hand you a write up and tell you they do not need you to work there, instead of being pro active and attempting to recognize the problem and find a real solution.

    Pros

    Coo stuff to play with. Never a dull moment.

    Cons

    If you don't drink the company kool aid you won't get anywhere even if you preform well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't BS your employees into thinking they're not as good as they are.
