I worked at Best Buy

Pros

Learned new technology, products and services offered. Fast growth opportunity, I was promoted and given a raise within the first 3 months of being employed.

Cons

Co-workers aren't micromanged enough, therefore their work ethic isn't up to standard most of the time. For some reason, alot of inside theft went on in the store.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Train co-workers how to be motivated and inspired to work for Best Buy and maybe they won't steal as much or at all.

    It was terrible from the first interview until a year later when I quit.

    Pros

    The only reason was the discount, but now that is changed. The discount is no longer worth anything on items that used to be cheap for employees.

    Cons

    Having a supervisor that can't look any of his employees or customers in the eye. All of the drama between co-workers. Made up excuses on why others get transferred over certain employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire yourselves. Fire your supervisors. Replace the store with people that know how to lead and act like they have some sort of knowledge in management. Don't force your employees to have to sell a certain amount of Black Tie in a day. Don't bs around with hours giving part time 5-10 hours a week and then when they work a second job, change your structuring to give them more hours or make them quit if they can't be available.
