    Pros

    The best part about working in BBYM is the people you work with its more of a family vibe. My favorite part is the fast pace environment I work in. Always go go go, and the friendly customers you get to help it's just fun.

    Cons

    Well the cons are limited to retail hours and rough customers, not everyone is a dream to work with.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Push your team, encourage them to push themselves, and try to keep a positive vibe in the work environment, and as always lead from the front.
