    Pros

    good co-workers, generally good products, good help on sales floor

    Cons

    Unrealistic sales number expectations, no commission (but you do have a number/budget of daily sales they expect). Very poor training and secondary management is unqualified and sets a poor example A lot of turnover in this store. Store is dirty, customers complain that they can't get anyone to help them in timely manner.

    Advice to Management

    Keep store cleaner, treat employees better and be more honest with customers.

    I worked at Best Buy (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good Leadership and work force. Coworkers willing to assist when they could with a problem. Would recommend Best Buy Edgewood.

    Cons

    Pay not where I needed it to be. Needs to be a way for higher beginning pay bases in working experience.

    Advice to Management

    Continue possible feedback to employees. New employees need to be more aware of their sale quotas
