I have been working at Best Buy full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Learning about all the new technology.
Paid holidays.
Four weeks of Sick/Personal Time.
Ability to work overtime, if needed.

Cons

Best Buy went to high pressure sales goals without proper incentive. (Commission Sales without the commission)

Pay Scale - No matter how good in sales you are, you make the same. A person can sell $1000/month or $150000/month. Best Buy only allows you to make up to $12/hr as a full-time sales. Also, most merit increases are less than a quarter per year.

Most associates seem stressed and are highly pressured to hit numbers.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Best Buy needs to do a refocus on their employees. If they make their employees happy in turn the employees will make the customers happy which will increase sales. If not, Best Buy will turn into Circuit City.
