    Pros

    Productive teams who's supervisors push for the best in you, respectable coworkers, always something to learn from your peers, room to grow in every department if you choose to learn, recognition for your hard work

    Cons

    CRWs are forced, sometimes you don't get positions you are cut out for, SLOW employee computers in an ELECTRONICS store,

    Advice to Management

    ALL Best Buys NEED Xbox, Playstation, and PSVR demos that allow customers to try out the tech. If we are going to be so adamant about "experiential selling" but not have options for customers to try in store, than whats the point?
