It is a fun workplace with a go get them attitude, and always working towards that perfect customer experience.
Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Taylor, MI – July 18, 2016
Best Buy is a fun place to work if you have few bills to pay and you still live with your parents. They do not schedule you very consistent hours unless you are full time and even then they do not want to schedule you a minute of overtime. It is very hard to move up in the ranks at best buy. they only look at sales numbers and do not take into account any actual leadership potential. I have a lot of leadership potential but I do not get a chance to show it very often as I have no authority to do so. I am fine with most of my coworkers, it is the leadership that I have a problem with. I work at the best buy in south land mall and a lot of our traffic is only passing through to go to the main part of the mall. Which means our store may look busy but the customers are not there for best buy. But we are still getting yelled at when are numbers are not up to par even though we have not had the right kind of customers in the store to sell things too. I did learn valuable selling skills as a result, and know how to pitch a product even if I do not know much about it.
