Pros

The company core values are awesome and everything Best Buy stands for is great. I've been in a thriving store where managers were on the same hype as corporate. But once that management team was split up, the chemistry changed in the store.

Cons

Sometimes promotions are based on who you a friends with as opposed to the talent you bring to the table.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Practice what you preach. Don't forget that without every single employee in the store you cannot do your job as well. Appreciate every employee and what they have to offer. Managers get great bonuses, while the line level employees get your hollering when you don't.

    Pros

    Nationally known brand.
    Guests come to you for advice.
    Good pay.
    Great (playful) competition!
    The break room was epic; DirecTV, huge couch, & candy (for those REALLY long nights)!

    Cons

    Lack of leadership.
    Long hours.
    The upper management doesn't communicate at all.
    It gets very political.
    Promotion does tend to be according to who you know and not how qualified you are.

    Pros

    Everyone seems the same because of their uniform, open minded employees, fun enviornment, learn alot and keep up to date with all of the latest technology

    Cons

    Like any other jobs, its a work enviornment so not enough time to really feel comfortable with your surroundings, hard to adapt to the new enviornment of working and having fun without being comfortable in your work while having fun, a little disorgaized in some parts, more communication between supervisors and their employees would improve all parts of the job
