I have been working at Best Buy

Pros

Good compensation, decent hours, treated with respect if you work hard, there pretty lenient on whether or timeliness, you can come in late a lot but if you do your job right that will usually offset being 1-5 minutes late everyday, everybody there is very friendle and willing to help and they bring a real team aspect to the store when doing things. THEY HAVE THE BEST DISCOUNT EVER, COST+ 5%!

Cons

not as many hours because of the recent recession, general managers play no role in day to day store activities, sometimes the culture can get very annoying when you want to go to work and do your job and go home

Advice to ManagementAdvice

be more involoved in the store, give more positive feedback than negative feedback

    Pros

    Discount, and not much else

    Cons

    Management (depending on your store) will walk all over you if you aren't one of their "outside of work" friends..

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sales Operators don't have a lot of responsibilities, and we understand that, but don't treat us like we are seasonal cashiers!

    Pros

    You really can't beat the discount. If you can get a decent manager you can get even better deals! As a technician you will see a wide variety of technical problems and you will get some great experience. Remember that now a days customer interaction is important and is a marketable skill. Best Buy lets you develop that as far as you want to take it.

    Cons

    Politics, Politics, Politics - It's a good old boy environment and the biggest problem is that people get promoted that shouldn't. This kills moral something fierce and is really something that should be addressed. You have to have confidence in the manager to lead and when the reason that they get promoted is because they are drinking with the GM that isn't very production. There is also the relationship issues. Managers will often date the young girls and as a result they get special treatment. It's gets worse when people break up or they start dating multiple people in the same store.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Institute something that measures the intelligence of the people you plan to promote
