    Former Employee - Merchandising Specialist in Springfield, MO

    I worked at Best Buy full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Access to accommodations (manufacture discount). Access to employee discount. Good managers/supervisors. No sales drama.

    Cons

    Individual performance is nearly unmeasurable in this position, judged as a group. Shrinking pool of accommodations and availability. UMRP goods don't get a discount, despite avg. cost information. Pay is currently behind similar jobs in the area (2019), used to be ahead after previous restructure (2016). New responsibilities and position titles for everyone in department. Electronic tags will eliminate... traditional Merchandising.

    Advice to Management

    District and Regional corporate merchandising is shooting from the hip.

    I have been working at Best Buy

    Pros

    Flexible hours, great benefits, acceptable pay, good discount.

    Cons

    Not commission but pressured to meet sales goals.

    Advice to Management

    My biggest advice to management is to just try and close the gap between them and the lower level employees. A lot of interactions with management seem to happen with them sitting in the office talking over the radio rather than helping on the floor
