    I worked at Best Buy full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Meeting new people and being able to assist customers with their electronic purchases.

    Cons

    Company does not value individuals. Sees them all as disposable. They would rather hire someone from outside the company rather than to promote from within. They also try to "brainwash" employees to mindlessly do whatever they are told. They do not appreciate employee feedback on ways to better their work environment.

    Not very flexible in terms of being able to switch shifts if something personal arises.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take some of your time to get to know your employees. Many are exceptionally skilled in what they do, and almost all of them are under-appreciated and/or paid. All it takes is 5 minutes to bring the morale up and show your employees that they too can be treated like human beings, rather than robots with a price tag.

    I worked at Best Buy full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits. Good wages. A diverse group of employees, who were a pleasure to work with.

    Cons

    Ultimately only looking at the bottom line. Business model not flexible enough to adapt quickly. Your job security is not linked to your performance. They practice "last in, first out", so during layoffs they go by seniority and not by how well you do your job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you are going to ask employees to live your values, be sure not to contradict them.
