    Pros

    Employee Discount! It's also pretty easy, mindless work.

    Cons

    Warehouse employees are constantly being stopped by customers who need help because they have to wear the exact same blue shirts as the sales employees.
    One-on-one training by management is basically non-existent.

    Advice to Management

    Give warehouse employees black shirts like the project team and train everyone accordingly.

    I worked at Best Buy full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Market share to be won within appliances / home delivery service and Best Buy is in line to capture.

    Cons

    IT infrastructure, supply chain and WMS need significant overhaul. Damage, shrink, and erosion of profit due to supply chain and systems will continue to hamper growth until company makes significant investments into those areas.

    Advice to Management

    Continue hard charging efforts to be front runner in home services and speed to customer.
    Spend some money on supply chain efficiency and WMS. Too many systems leave too much room for failure in delivering on promises.

    Pros

    Great people, good place to build social skills, and selling skills. The managers are wonderful and the connections you can get out of college are amazing.

    Cons

    Meeting quota is sometimes impossible due to lowered store traffic. This hurts your pay, and the managers are not willing to change the quota so you can meet it while still being held to a higher standard.

    Advice to Management

    If you made the schedule change based on the traffic flow, while still holding the stressed, higher standard, that would allow for further growth of your sales skills, and then the system of the quota is a reasonable achievement with balance.
