    Former Employee - Merchandising Specialist in Springfield, MO

    I worked at Best Buy full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Access to accommodations (manufacture discount). Access to employee discount. Good managers/supervisors. No sales drama.

    Cons

    Individual performance is nearly unmeasurable in this position, judged as a group. Shrinking pool of accommodations and availability. UMRP goods don't get a discount, despite avg. cost information. Pay is currently behind similar jobs in the area (2019), used to be ahead after previous restructure (2016). New responsibilities and position titles for everyone in department. Electronic tags will eliminate... traditional Merchandising.

    Advice to Management

    District and Regional corporate merchandising is shooting from the hip.
