Pros

The managers at my store were very understanding and allowed for flexible schedules. They were great about teaching very good selling skills. They also promote from within.

Cons

During the holidays you were expected to give up every aspect of your life and work super long hours. The managers could get too familiar with the employees which made them bad at managing them.

    Pros

    Work with some down to earth people, employee discount was great, learned a lot about the technologies sold at best buy, free AC, it's a great company and the paid training is great.

    Cons

    For how much they expect from you, they will continue to ask for more. You get a horrible 45 min lunch with no breaks because they will give you crap for taking one. Even if you have some of the best sales, they will be on your butt about needing to sell more and "work on your low point areas" even though they are the highest in the district. The full time "leads" who aren't real managers, will act like they are the managers and tell you to do the things they are supposed to be doing but are too lazy to do it.

    Advice to Management

    Better pay would help flush some of those tiny annoyances down the drain. Actually have the real managers manage the team, not the full time employee with no training as a manager lead the way. You are losing your smartest employees because of it, the smart ones will leave and all you have left are the ones who are too scared to leave.
