I worked at Best Buy full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Strong emphasis on Employee satisfaction
Excellent Benefits and Bonus incentives
Better than competitive pay

Cons

Long Hours, averaging 60/week as a salaried manager
Nights, Weekends and ALL Holidays
6+ day work weeks several weeks a year
In other words, no such thing as a work/life balance. its all work, including several times daily phone calls.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Remember that managers are employee's too, and family should be higher on the priority list.
Their is no use to having an SOP if stores are allowed to deviate from that and create their own policies or procedures.
