    I worked at Best Buy full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Pay was so-so, had ok co-workers. The employee discount was great until they took that away.

    Cons

    Forced to regularly work past your scheduled shifts. They sell hard meaning they will sell customers things they do not need and you better keep your mouth shut about it. Being in installations I was setup up on a frequent basis to fail and be put in harms way.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Go back to what worked. Empower the people again and have them sell like they are paid hourly and not sell like they are 100% commission
