Pros

Learn basic sales technique, work with great retail managers, awesome employee discount, benefits package, and tuition support. Coworkers are pleasant to work with and supportive.

Cons

As with all sales positions, selling enough product can be stressful. Managers, however, do set reasonable expectations. Be prepared to work with angry and illogical customers at times.

Advice to Management

Continue to recognize employees for their successes. Inviting sales reps to the corporate office for seminars is a great way to teach technique and foster loyalty.

    Pros

    The hours are pretty flexible when you need certain days off not counting holidays. If you work at best buy you work holidays. Depending on what store you work at, it is a family atmosphere. A very diverse hiring strategy allows you to meet a lot of different people. There is usually room for advancement if you don't care what department you work in.

    Cons

    low pay to keep the stock prices up. too many constant changes with acronyms that go out before you even fully understood what they meant. LOTS of drama. A few bad apples ruin the whole barrel because best buy is so shy at getting rid of them for fear of turnaround. everything is tracked so you don't know what the main goal of the day is.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be afraid to get rid of the bad employees. there is 20 more to take the spot. causes low moral and you lose good employees or they acquire the same negative attitude.
