    Pros

    Best Buy is a place that truly allows you to connect with customers on a personal level. It's not just about putting products on the shelf. The experience that we expect our customers to have is one where we learn about their unique needs and sell them all of the solutions for their needs.

    Cons

    Work life balance can be challenging as with any retail management job...you work a lot of weekends and holidays.

    Advice to Management

    Keep working on ways to battle the internet competitors. Show rooming will be prevalent for a long time to come and the store's should be armed with more ammo to combat our online competitors on a daily/weekly basis.
