    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

    Best Buy had Fairly flexible scheduling. Vacation time was appropriate for position. The discount on most accessories is amazing.

    Cons

    The management had extremely high expectations for certain positions, with extremely low pay for the work to be done. The management was very clique based, if they didn't like you, you were out.

    Advice to Management

    Management, please treat your tenured employees a bit better. Someone who worked there a long time, was segregated when notice was given for other employment.

    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.

    Pros

    Great work atmosphere. Expectations are laid out for each employee. AWESOME benefits. management is easy to work with as long as you do what you were hired to do: Provide excellence in customer service.

    Cons

    Not all employees were on the same page as far as providing full solutions to customers, causing return customer's in a negative aspect.

    Advice to Management

    Provide unilateral training to all sale agents. This should bring them all on the same page and work towards the same goal.

    Pros

    Decent pay for retail. Have some good co-workers and a good team lead. There are times we get to travel.

    Cons

    Low pay for the type of work we do for the company. Working on the same week as a holiday means we usually have to work into the weekend.

    Advice to Management

    Give the team leads more leadership responsibility over their team. Pay more for higher responsible roles within the company.
