    I have been working at Best Buy part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    I like the general atmosphere at Best Buy. I was hired for the Computer Department. The people in my dept are awesome. A lot of fun to be around. Very laid back low pressure sales approach which after many years in sales is a nice change. I hate high pressure sales, and it has all but destroyed the sales industries reputation. This company is different in that associates seek the best solution for the customer versus pitching, and up selling for a higher commission. There is no commission, but a nice bonus structure instead. The management is awesome. So far they have never come across as anything but helpful. I am so glad I got a chance to finally join the Best Buy Team.

    Cons

    Standing on your feet all day gets some getting used to.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work.

    Pros

    Nice discounts, friendly staff, Always around new technology. You will get to experience the new technolgy first hand. The employees and managers are friendly and professional.

    Cons

    Lack of promotions, no commission, a lot of employees work hard and reap little benefits. The medical and dental benefit packages are expensive and the pay really isnt that good starting off.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They shoud promote the hard working individuals more often.

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

    Pros

    Decent benefits to full timers with bonuses to performing stores
    Great discounts and vendor incentive programs
    Fast promotion for those who perform and keep high spirits
    If you are offering the right stuff no one will bother you about performance

    Cons

    Leadership can leave quite alot to be desired but this is not a universal statement some managers can be hypercritical or play favorites, but others can become friends and be genuinely understanding people

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase wage caps and give incentives to expert level employees to stay on the work force
    A happy culture is very often a high performing one
