Not a total waste of my time but I would probably not work here again.

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

Pros

I can't really think of anything that stands out. Employees used to get a really sweet discount but they did away with a lot of that. Learning lounges allow you to win free product from doing quizzes. Met some really amazing people there.

Cons

I never received a raise while I was there or a review of my performance. The management cares very little about their employees. Poor availability standards.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Try to care about the employees and listen to their concerns.

    I have been working at Best Buy full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    This company offers many opportunities for growth sheerly because it has so many stores. There are several leadership positions that are easily attainable with little or no formal education.

    Cons

    This company has aggressive sales goals and the corporate culture promotes favoritism, greed, and negative competition.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend more time in the stores -- the people that get paid the most, and those with the most talent in this company spend no time in the stores. The stores are managed through email...

    Long work hours, not very diverse, it can be very difficult to move around the company or get promoted.
