    Pros

    Best Buy will spend as much money as it takes to have their employees trained with the upmost knowledge. They truly care about their employees. For my mobile induction, they paid for my gas to drive to and from the center, as well as my hotel accommodations and food. They have great health care benefits to full time employees. They also give great feedback and rewards for employees who exceed expectations. I know of a mobile manager that got an all expense paid vacation for him and his wife to go to Puerto Rico for a week.

    Cons

    I no longer work for a big box store for a reason. The market is declining, and the remodel of the way the store is operated just doesn't work out for me, or a lot current employees. If you're looking for employment, a Best Buy Mobile SAS store is the way to go. They have a bigger budget to pay you more, and their is more opportunities to move up in the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have advice for District Supervisors. Pay attention to whom the GM is hiring in Big Box stores. From what I have experienced, it isn't who is best for the job or company; It's who is favorited. Also, wages aren't fair in Big Box stores. Pay your employees what they deserve based on personal performance. Other than that, Best Buy is a killer employer. I love it.
