I have been working at Best Buy full-time (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.

    I worked at Best Buy part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    There were no good things about working at Best Buy. I worked in Best Buy Mobile as well as the Geek Squad.

    Cons

    Pay was awful. The restructuring every year was ridiculous. Career advancement was a joke. Managers were never present. Organization was pitiful at best. Worst job ever.
