    I have been working at Best Buy

    Pros

    I've worked with best buy for over two years now. I enjoy every single one of my employees, especially those who work very close to me in my department. Although there is sometimes high school drama, I've made some good friends there. A lot of the people have been there for over a year, and at my store, the turnover rate is very low. There are opportunities to move up and work at corporate.

    Cons

    The management is incompetent at times. They treat us like we're 15 and think that it's our career. I guess it should be understood that it's their career though. The managers NEVER help out, and never work on the floor and love to huddle and cry if they have to help. There is a lot of favoritism. In order to succeed you must transfer far away to move up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Some managers need to actually do something instead of cry to others on how it sucks. They need to learn how to participate with a group instead of just leading, because they really do nothing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    listen to your female supervisors and include them. Don't make them do everything because the males can't take care of anything. treat everyone equally.
