    Fast paced. Knowledgeable leadership. I have gained alot of knowledge of general practices in inventory, merchandising and inventory control that can easily transfer to other careers or higher positions within. Can be really enjoyable with a good team in the warehouse.

    I worked at Best Buy part-time

    Pros

    Employee discounts that's is it really

    Cons

    No commission, doing so much for nothing, the pay

    Advice to Management

    If you want to keep knowledge employees pay them so they can stay, what happens is entry level people work at beSt buy and when they gain enough knowledge, Apple, Verizon, tmobile, Google swoop them up and take them because they pay more.
