Pros

No pressure to sell specific products or services, we do what is best for the customer.

Cons

Not paid as well as the companies who's products/services we sell.

Advice to Management

Check your lower level management, they are unaware of anything going on in the business as a whole and therefore look ignorant. Also, the BBY store assistant managers do not treat the BBM managers as a "real" assistant manager of the store.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    I get to keep up with all the latest technolgies.

    Cons

    The amount of pressure put on the sales associates to get the customer the "complete soulution" (get as many accessories and services and humanly possible) is very high. We have all the tactics of commision sales without the commision.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Decent environment. Good starting pay for a student in a college town. Employee discount is a huge benefit. Non-physical labor.

    Cons

    There are many early morning mandatory meetings. Way too many mandatory trainings. No health care options for part-timers. Can be very difficult to get deserved raises.

    Advice to Management

    Be good to your senior employees. In a job that can take someone quite a long time to really get the hang of all the policies, paperwork, selling strategies, and other general responsibilities, you cannot afford to lose a few of them at one time.
