    I worked at Best Buy full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    It was great getting to work with and learn about all the latest technology especially being a tech enthusiast,the discount was really nice too.

    Cons

    management at times cared too much about sales and not enough about employee experience, holiday work schedule was very demanding especially as we began opening earlier and earlier for black Friday and Thanksgiving

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus more on employee and consumer experience happy employees make great workers, and an amzing customer experience makes for loyal customers.

    I worked at Best Buy

    Pros

    Great discount
    Great job while still in school
    A good transition into a semi professional environment
    Very good about scheduling work around personal life such as school, church, family
    Good benefit package for fulltime employees

    Cons

    No career advancement
    Lack of job security
    Too much interoffice politics
    random early morning meets that serve no purpose

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Encourage employees more
    take a more hands on managing approach
    lose the 4AM pre-black friday meeting, or any other early morning meetings the employees gain nothing and its a waste of time.

    Recommends
    Approves of CEO
