I worked at Best Buy full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

its retail, but they were extremely flexible and accommodating for a student. Relaxed environment, and always had a lot of fun. Besides that, the employee discount rocks!

Cons

did i mention it was retail? Really, the only con is for the industry, not the company. retail just requires you be available essentially 24x7.

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

    Pros

    There is a fair pay and bonus scale. Best Buy put's A LOT of emphasis on training (they will be training 55,000 employees by November 8 hours a day for 4 days) and are they are constantly adapting to changing conditions. They have started to realize what they are doing wrong and that the customer needs to come first, and are finally changing their business model to achieve this goal.

    Cons

    too much focus on numbers and not enough focus on customer satisfaction. Breaks are almost non existent and lunches only happen if you work 7 1/2 or more therefore they often schedule you for 7 hours.

    Advice to Management

    It should be all about the customers then numbers, not all about the numbers then customers

    Pros

    Great co-workers on non-leadership level

    Cons

    If you show you work hard you stay low on the totem pole. Management is all about favortism and they don't do anything. Again THEY DON'T DO ANYTHING!

    Advice to Management

    Hire individuals with degrees instead of those that just want all their friends to be managers and make a lot of money while doing nothing. ALSO District staff seems to do nothing as well and just earn a pay check. Hold people accountable for a change
