Really supportive

Sales Consultant (Current Employee)
Bastrop, TX

I have been working at Best Buy full-time for more than a year

ProsThis company really supports its employees in numerous ways. It works with you on hours for college, college tuition reimbursement, health benefits. Its great to feel like someone has my back.

ConsLots of missed communication can lead to terrible results (all of which can be fixed if you speak up)

Advice to Senior ManagementGive more positive feedback, I'm number one in sales almost every month, and I always feel like I just can't do enough to get a "good job" out of you guys.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Don't waste your time

Geek Squad, Autotech (Former Employee)
Beaverton, OR

I worked at Best Buy part-time for less than a year


Pros: The employee discount is ridiculously good for some items; 5% above… Cons: There is terrible communication among management. I would constantly get yelled at for doing something wrong when another manager told me to do it… Advice to Senior Management: Put those "walkies" to use by actually communicating important details with your employees, especially new hires. Your employee shouldn't have to talk to 5… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
