    I worked at Best Buy full-time (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 requests off or availability.
    Work load is incredibly stressful in Geek Squad; Supervisors are encouraged to dodge work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop promoting people from outside their respective departments to other departments.
    Higher morale will lead to higher sales; "Monopoly money" reward system is insulting.
    Geek Squad / Customer Service merger was the worse direction to take either department in.
    BBY.com search engine is famously bad. How can you compete with eBay/Amazon if people can't find anything on the site?
