Pros: the breakroom had a home theater system in it.
Cons: training, pay, managers, some employees not valued or appreciated
I hadn't worked at Best Buy for very long. My first few months were spent on a computer where I took numerous training courses that didn't apply to the position I was hired for. I wasn't able to start my Sales Floor training until I had my computer courses completed. Once I finally made it out onto the sales floor, I was paired up with a few associates – more... to go over the basics of the products and the layout of the store and the departments. After that, I was on my own to greet and assist any customers that came into my department. Any questions I had about certain products were left unanswered as the fellow associates and managers were usually too busy juggling customers throughout the store. Every day felt the same.
I began having one or two shifts a week as a cashier on the front end. I enjoyed being on a register much more than working in the departments. I was able to interact with more customers while being on a register. I felt as though I was playing a more important, meaningful role while I was working up front. – less
