    Great for students, not a career

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    Works well with schedule if you are a student
    Get to see latest technology

    Cons

    Retail sales are constantly changing and it makes the job stressful because of constant nagging from management to exceed "goals" which are unattainable

  2.  

    Chill place to work, but not a very secure job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just keep to yourself. Upper Management doesn't care about what their employees have to say. Just clock in, work hard, and clock off it's really not that hard. At the end of the day, you still have a job, and the one's who complain are generally the laziest people. Just my two cents.

    Pros

    The pay is good, if you are in management, and the company discount is excellent! Love my employees and the dedication to their jobs and company.

    Cons

    You will work 50 plus hours, 70 plus during the the holiday months, no weekends off at all, meetings and conference calls on your days off. Upper management will work you into the ground, and at the same time you have to push your under paid staff to sell products, without commission for them. The labor management is unproductive, bestbuy will expect your employees to work alone helping 5-10 people at the same time, horrible customer and employee experience. Turnover has reached an all time high, making everyone's work environment unstable and stressful.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Rethink the company model in the mobility stores, they need an asst manager, not leads and more labor to better assist customers and relieve stress of employees. Stop under cutting the notional margins so that bonus's are attainable for our employees.

    Pros

    Great discount, laid back work enviornment, health benefits are pretty decent.

    Cons

    almost impossible to hit your monthly goals. treated like commission based even though we aren't. company has great values however upper management doesn't impliment them. if you are in school you shouldn't be a GM there isn't really a work life balance at all.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    quit pushing numbers and listen to your team when they are discussing business aspects of the store they are in almost daily. we are stressed out enough as is and there are times you dont make it easier.

    Pros

    The discount for accessories is amazing and depending on the work environment it can be fun. Mobile needs is important and it is cool to help people in that manner.

    Cons

    It is a sales position so you are pushed to sell certain things. Depending on the other employees it may become push sales which is never fun.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Overall management is good.

    Pros

    Work life balance was great, all of the staff is supportive and its definite team attitude when working there. The management was great in assisting in anything i needed help with and was accommodating my needs in regards to time for school.

    Cons

    There is minimal chances to grow without changing locations and working on special release days or shopping days were a pain.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No real advice to give, it was a great job while I was in school but I'm glad I worked there as it served as a great stepping stone to many other career choices as i moved on.

    Pros

    -Great direct manager rapport
    -Great giving feedback to employees
    - Fun place to work at
    - Great place to make connections

    Cons

    -Expected to carry other team members while watching them under perform
    - Terrible accountability
    - Some managers have favoritism

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop trying to make things fun without holding people accountable for their actions. Sometimes you congratulate the wrong employees and so you have frustrated people running around and giving up early.
