Former Manager

Operations Manager (Former Employee)
Atlanta, GA

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

ProsBenefit package, Relocation, Training, and Networking

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

Advice to Senior ManagementProvide 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.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Geek Squad, Agent (CIA) (Former Employee)
Cape Girardeau, MO

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


Pros: Non-management are generally awesome. Discount is above average. Cons: Favoritism is rampant; Promotions are anything but merit based. Hours are flexible, but supervisors and management rarely respect… Advice to Senior Management: Stop promoting people from outside their respective departments to other departments. Higher morale will lead to higher sales; "Monopoly money" reward system is insulting.
