    Pros

    Hands off approach,bosses do not micro manage you. You are given a task and it's up to you to finish it.Office is also very nicely designed

    Cons

    Hard to advance, general lack of procedures. They do not train you,you are kind of left on your own to figure out what you're doing, which isn't bad if you can learn fast by yourself.

    Pros

    big company, stable job position, good benefit and good city to live in. Taking huge profit from the market now, and still looking to dominate market share in future.

    Cons

    culture is more closed, not much space to do research independently. woking hours too long and stressful. Need to adjust life style.

    I have been working at Samsung Group part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The hourly pay rate is very decent for an entry level position.

    Great work environment working with a highly motivated team.

    Management feels more like mentors and they are always available for help.

    Cons

    It can be difficult to get promotions at times.

    Depending on your job position depends on how much you work. Either too little or too many hours. No in between.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    All SEC locations should be full time with part time workers and full time workers. There is a growing demand for the services that we provide, but no one is there to meet the demand sometimes!

    Store In Store at Best Buy contract employee

    Former Employee - Samsung Experience Consultant in Albuquerque, NM
    Former Employee - Samsung Experience Consultant in Albuquerque, NM

    I worked at Samsung Group as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    I enjoyed learning about and working with the computers, phones, tablets and cameras.
    Free loaner phone, good training program on equipment.
    Medical was OK, but high deductible.

    Cons

    Management covered a wide area and sometimes I didn't see the Area Manager when he was in town.
    I was a contract hire through Mosaic, not a direct Samsung employee. There didn't seem to be a clear path to transition or move into Samsung.
    Working inside Best Buy was sometimes an awkward fit. I had good relations with most BBY employees, but got a lot of indirect feedback.
    One employee had a complaint, but I was not given a chance to resolve the issue and was released without notice.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Instructions on equipment setup improved noticeably while I worked there.
    Other programs like customer training were promoted by national management, but blocked or downplayed by the area manager.
