    I worked at Best Buy (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great Training Managers encourage and teach you how to provide excellent customer service Bonus incentives Positive company culture Great employee discount

    Cons

    Overstaffed Scheduling was inconsistent; it would be nice if it was given to employees earlier so that they could actually plan their lives around it instead of knowing last minute when they are scheduled to work. Management is too lenient with flakey employees

    Advice to Management

    Management did a great job motivating employees by keeping everyone informed with where we ranked compared to other stores. It pushed us to be the best. Keep striving for excellence!


  3. A good place starting out in retail, but needs focus

    I have been working at Best Buy full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good starting pay compared to other retailers Fun, team atmosphere Opportunities to learn and play with all the latest gadgets Bonuses based on store performance (monthly) A business that recognizes its shortcomings and tries to fix them (albeit at a slow rate)

    Cons

    Management a little snobby, uptight. Rather than help you, train you, and lead you they sort of just point the finger, get upset, and boss people around. Too much overbearing corporate presence without actual constructive criticism. When corporate visits it's more about checking off a checklist and being ominous than actually being supportive and constructive Performance development lacking Training mediocre at best Pay grade system can't keep up with inflation

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees with respect and dignity. Sit down, talk to them, ask them what they wanna do where they wanna go. Make them feel valued and they will be valuable. As a manager, do your job and LEAD. Don't be the crotchety manager nobody wants to be around. Train and lead your employees to do good things!
