    I have been working at Best Buy (More than a year)

    Pros

    great discount, fun working enviroment

    Cons

    Managers and superivors suck. They literally dont know what they doing, lack of knowledge. Its all about faveritism in this store. Female workers get treated better. Your work performance will always be rewarded with a piece of paper instead of giving a raise. Your hardwork will never be appreciated, since they only talk about how good your performance are and thats it, nothing realistic.

    Advice to Management

    managers are too retarded to be helped. nah, not worth to give an advice.

    Pros

    Good Pay depending on location and good discount

    Cons

    Can become draining and frustrating as pressure from management to achieve hourly sales goal increase when in store foot traffic decreases. how can you hold someone accountable to reach sales targets when foot traffic doesnt correspond with the rev per hour target

    Advice to Management

    Be more realistic with sales targets and goals. Shouldn't make a non commission position turn into a hostile commission like environment. If you want high hourly sales targets PAY COMMISSION !
