Disapproves of CEO

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

Pros

Great people to work with. Lively Work environment. Awesome product knowledge with excellent technicians (Geeksquad) Right on Hand.

Cons

High pressure sales for non-commissioned job. Management was very pushy about their numbers. Annual reviews were poorly conducted. Annual raise was very minimal ($.30). New hires were getting paid more than me (I started out making $8.50, annual raise put me to 8.80, new hires were making $9.00 and management wouldn't raise my pay so I left the company.

    I worked at Best Buy full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The corporate attitude towards workers is good. They respect and appreciate their people.

    Cons

    The pressure and goals applied to managers make them give sometimes unreachable goals to their staff.

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees right, with enough people to man the floor, and they will treat customers right. People don't buy on price alone, or they would be at Walmart. Let your people give service.
