I worked at Best Buy Canada part-time (more than an year)

Pros

* "Team building" exercises

Advice to ManagementAdvice

People will always find out how bad a deal they got after they've left and had time to think about it; if you want repeat business, you're doing everything wrong.

    Pros

    Excellent opportunities, should you work very hard and get your voice out there.

    Cons

    Management is apathetic and impersonal, blame associates for overall departmental woes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get involved with daily processes, process improvement starts with your associates who know the daily tasks inside and out, show them you care.
