I have been working at Best Buy

Pros

Flexible time off via the Results Oriented Work Environment (ROWE) program, competent management, exciting products (TV's, Gaming, Movies, Music, etc...), good compensation & benefits

Cons

Chaotic atmosphere doesn't work for everyone. Changing demands and timelines can be frustrating.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I think many areas would benefit from better training and development, i.e. a Merchant Development program that would allow for transitions between Finance and the Merchant organization

    Normal retail emphasis on numbers, but management pretty in touch with reality.

    Pros

    Good benefits for full time
    Excellent 401k matching
    Mostly fair promotions, though it does help to share interests with the manager

    Cons

    Very average pay for floor-level employees
    Usually good, but at times immature (very young) co-workers
    Pay by the hour only - no commission

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The "no commission" policy seems like a nice way to promote honest and helpful employee/customer interaction, but the bonus structure of management retains these incentives without passing them on to employees. I performed at the top of my departments for my years at Best Buy, but didn't receive "blue crew bonus" because the store and region didn't make numbers.
