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

Pros

Great chemistry with employees from top to bottom. Decent pay, but the discount is what gets most people, it will have all of your friends jealous. Great place to hone your sales skills, customer base is generally always looking to buy, and easily convincible due to the nature of major electronic retail. I worked in the Mobile department, which is one where you spend a longer duration with your customers, which I enjoy. Great flexibility.

Cons

Managers can over hype a quota, happens in every department which adds unneeded stress. HIgh sales expectations and quotas with no commission (team members do bonus based on store performance).

Advice to Management

Listen to employees more and let them express their own sales techniques.. don't always keep it as a cookie-cutter sales pitch. Promote from within more when applicable.

    Pros

    Good coworkers for the most part, theres always certain good management and interesting experiences.

    Cons

    There is always the manager/s that want to get to the top, as well as a corky coworker or two that all think they can smile to the manager for a promotion.

    Advice to Management

    Sort of Hopeless
