    Pros

    Pay is great with opportunities to grow. Employee discount is amazing on private label products. Travel is great and they take care of you.

    Long hours away from home. Lacking work/life balance. Upper management doesn't understand daily challenges.

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

    Pros

    Always a positive vibe when it's your shift or not.

    Cons

    I really don't think they should've taken away the employee discount that it used to be.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do more role playing with a short change artist to prevent employees getting screwed over by one.

    I worked at Best Buy

    Pros

    The company knows how to take care of their employees. Decent pay and hours and the employee discount is 5% above cost which is a pretty sweet deal. For a retail job, its decent.

    Cons

    Management doesn't always follow through with their word. Some of the employees are a little bitter and it makes working awkward. Working on Thanksgiving is the biggest eff you to the employees and its a joke.
