    Pros

    The people and relationships you build among staff

    Cons

    Work/life balance compared to pay. Comp sales declines in the past few quarters. A change in management to Sears people who also do not know how to run a company.

    Advice to Management

    Should have never brought in Sears people to run your business. No opportunity for advancement. Little pay compared to hours worked. Need better managers running your buildings. Most are second rate that could not run other retail buildings much less work in them...all of this will end in your demise

    Pros

    Easiest job anyone could have. The potential for good money and lots of training are at your disposal. Just don't rely on senior management to help. My General Manager is very helpful but his hands are tied.

    Cons

    Hiring all senior management from a company (Sears) that was run into the ground isn't a good sign. Many knee jerk changes being made to policy and employee commission that has employees running away.

    Advice to Management

    Quit and actually put some people in charge that have run successful companies. Best Buy is not your worry, its not being ahead of the game.

    Pros

    The only pro was the fact that I gained experience in my sales experience

    Cons

    The management is horrible, the pay is minimum wage, it's easy to owe them money, you aren't treated with respect, and they don't care if you have a family or kids because you work many, many hours

    Advice to Management

    Get better managers who are actually respectful to their employees

    Pros

    HHGregg is a good part-time job for someone that is attending school.

    Cons

    At times management can be rude whenever they are giving direction.

    Advice to Management

    Whenever it is pressure moments, I would tell them to relax and be optimistic about those situations that may occur.

    Pros

    Pay is ok during peak seasons.

    Cons

    Very few hourly employees or Stockroom people which means your are expected to load appliances for customers including large items like refrigerators in front of the store with no loading ramp. They demand you attend meetings away from the site, but refuse to pay you for your hours.

    Advice to Management

    Follow the federal wage and hour laws which you blatantly are breaking.
