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

Pros

Good benefits, cool stuff with an okay discount, sales were pretty easy and customers were usually fun. Bonuses were excellent, although I was the only person in the store who was receiving bonuses.

Cons

I was very pressured to attach service plans and other non-necessities to products, and sales numbers were extremely important and monitored, even though I did not receive commission.

Advice to Management

Streamline and reward your good employees more. Stop hiring so many people who will only stay for one week.
