    We receive solid training on selling and taking care of customers.

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

    Pros

    Great compensation plan with unlimited bonus potential and good benefits.

    Cons

    They have company values they say they profess, but in reality, they discriminate against age and aren't receptive to employee suggestions. Hiring practices are suspect. Lots of nepotism and you need to be part of the "Clique" to get ahead.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the voice of your employees. Our concerns are real and they need to get their heads out of the sand and address real morale issues. Take advantage of your Senior Talent.
