Former Employee - Wireless Sales in Columbia, MO

I worked at Best Buy full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

-Usually very flexible with scheduling and allowed for me to be in school while working full time.
-Fun, fast paced environment
-Great employee discount
-Opportunities for personal growth
-Commitment to diversity and inclusiveness that went beyond a statement

Cons

-Entry wages were fairly low compared to cost of living but still met min. wage requirements.
-High turnover with both line-level and managers led to confusion

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The one thing to think about is the level of support and access to on-the-job perks such as gyms, health and childcare at the corporate level vs. the line level. When I worked there I was always confused by the amount of benefits Corp. employees had vs. those in sales.
