i have been working for best buy for almost 9 years and i have noticed as of late that it is just one of the worst places to work. i have been an installer, senior, and sup/lead. right now i am just an installer because i stepped down during the last "big shift" i am also in a struggle to get a raise from my last review; they won't give one to me because i makw eot much. so what do you make an hour???

Wow 9 years for big blue huh?  Damn, as for the pay depends a lot on the area you work.  I know the guys in NY make an average of 18/hr. While in my area they start at 11/hr.

why dont you apply for a better company in your area? Maybe one that only specializes in car audio.

I second that emotion.  Though thanks to the overall image of bb installers, it's kinda hard to get other shops to even talk to me.

i have looked at my pay rate with my gm and it says that the cap for my pay scale is $20.09. I am not to far off from that but they will still not give me a raise for my yearly review which i scored a 3.7 on. i am the most productive and knowledgeable in my store. in fact i have more experience than every other installer combined. i just don't think it's right especially when they pound the "employee retention" into your head. if they want to be the "employer of choice" then they need to pay appropriately; plain and simple.
