    Pros

    Good job for techies who like talking tech and helping people get access to the latest and greatest.

    Cons

    Too much focus on the Best Buy Credit Card and over pressuring to sell and hit sales goals even though there is no commission or incentive to do so. Essentially being harassed into making sales.

    Advice to Management

    Either implement commission or just focus on giving good customer service not selling products and services that customers don't need.

    Pros

    Great co-workers and staff members that create a good vibe in the store.

    Boss and Management are dictators that will take advantage of unassuming workers. Assuming you need the money this job is pretty laborious at times.

    Advice to Management

    If you fire multiple veteran workers while you are understaffed right before black Friday, you should have a backup plan.
