I have been working at Best Buy full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Friendly people, great corporate campus, ROWE is fantastic, great discount, lots of opportunity once you get your foot in the door, constantly changing environment, great experience.

Cons

Salary is a bit low compared to the industry, but worth the trade-off in my opinion. Very responsive to the state of the economy, like all retail.

Advice to Management

Bump salary ranges to keep top talent from leaving the company for other opportunities. Make Best Buy a place to grow and know you will earn what you deserve.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Best Buy part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    -Management is mostly friendly -Laid back work environment -Employee discount is pretty good

    Cons

    -Pointless sales goals since there is no commission

    Advice to Management

    Stop making employees push credit card applications and protection plans so hard on customers. Yes they are pure profit for the store, but the customers really get annoyed with it after awhile and will just resort to going elsewhere.

    I have been working at Best Buy full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Best Buy is a great place to work. Benefits include an average salary, bonus potential, health and wealth benefits, employee discounts on products and services, and a well developed development path.

    Cons

    Over the last 12 years there are a few cons. The company is obviously retail, so salary is based on 50 hours per week, blackout dates during holidays and meeting months in which time off cannot be taken, and low accountability with hourly associates.

    Advice to Management

    Avoid the ever present favoritism among associates that perform, instead performance manage those who don't want to participate. Ensure timely reviews and development with associates and be understanding regarding time off when associates actually need it.
