Former Employee - Operations Manager in Atlanta, GA

I worked at Best Buy full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

Benefit package, Relocation, Training, and Networking

Cons

Advancement is not always result based. Bonus structure changes yearly, and is usually not consistent with market outlook condition.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Provide consistent direction from C Level down to the store level. Most of the district level positions could be combined & cost savings applied to store or shareholders. Many of these jobs offer little benefit other than confusion by the time company initiatives are cascaded to the store level.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Some younger associates need serious development in how to talk to customers. They seem to talk to their cusotmers the way they talk to their friends, and some customers clearly find this off-putting.
